I thought slugger was like Shavers, Foreman and brawlers were Marciano, Tyson who were combo and fast good.

foreman was the epitome of slugger!

i dont know if i count tyson as a slugger he threw fast combos and showed good skills and speed which arent traditionally slugger traits

Tyson, Liston or even Frazier shouldn't be called Sluggers. they were a lot more technical. I'll start off a list of sluggers.

1-George Foreman
2-The late Gerald Mcclellan
3-Early Nigel Benn
4-Earnie Shavers
5-Thomas Hearns if he WANTED to slug.
6-Rocky Marciano
7-David Tua
8-Jack Dempsey
9-Razor Ruddock
10-Maybe Ibeabuchi

Chin is very important for slugger to be good. Speed and agility aswell. George Foreman had a chin and power punching ability. If he had the same heart as after Ali...Marciano could slug and had heart, but he was a bit slower and couldnt put many combos together.
