I can only speak from personal experience being around these fighters in camp.

And of course a lot of heavyweights are not very athletic but one all time great in Lennox Lewis was so lacking in athletic ability it was shocking.

He couldn’t run fast, or jump and he was not very coordinated. I remember him and his one of his friends from Canada trying to dance to some reggae music and I thought he was joking the way he was flailing away but nope he was serious, but man could he fight.

And on the flip side one of the most athletic fighter I have ever seen at heavyweight was Ike Ibeabuchi, he could of been a starting middle linebacker in the NFL, he was a freak athlete.

Srisaket Sor Rungsvai is at the top of the list for me

Mikey Garcia is a great shout.

I'd say Kovalev could be mentioned as well.

here's a young[ish] hopkins. not a bad athlete, is he?

Personally I don't think Hopkins stood out from an athletic stand point. I'd say he was above average at best.

He wasn't a big puncher at all. He had some pop on his shots and would stop guys easily at a lower level but once he was at world class level he usually had to grind guys down. He fought many guys who hit harder, RJJ, Tito, Eastman, Taylor, Pavlik, Pascal etc.

He wasn't particularly quick either, plenty of guys he fought had faster hands than him. Dawson, Taylor, RJJ, Pascal, Calzaghe, Tito, De La Hoya, even Joppy and Allen had quicker hands.

Hopkins just looks faster than he really is because of his superior technique. He doesn't telegraph punches and disguises them well, so they are hard to see coming, as they are so sneaky. They are technically sound too, so they travel the minimal distance with no wasted movement.
