Default What is "athleticism"?

When someone says a boxer is "athletic", what exactly does that mean? What makes a boxer "athletic"?

Adrien Broner



When it comes to boxing, it is guys who can do Multiple Things Well in the Ring and not just 1 or 2 things, guys like Broner, Sergio Martinez, Mayweather of course, Amir Khan, Gamboa, Timothy Bradley, George Groves has good athleticism just to name a few

The Can move around and do things not many other fighters can

Some idiots when they hear "Athletic" right away they think "BLACK AMERICAN FIGHTER" but that is not necessarily the case

Athletic are physical attributes that don't necessarily equate to boxing. For example a fighter than can do a backflip would be considered an athletic person.

Someone who can run extremely fast, throw a baseball really far, dunk, compete in marathon. Naturally gifted in most cardiovascular functions.

Its physical thing that can't be coached. Like Roy Jones jumping hooks with perfectly positioned feet. Or Pacquiao being able to throw punches from any angle while moving.
