Chavez and Tyson stationary fighters?
Do you feel JCC and Tyson were stationary fighters and predictable?

Stationary? Hell no. Predictable? Maybe...but as Larry Merchant said: so is a hurricane. What are you going to do about it?

Chavez at his peak certainly wasn't.If you had watched just the Chavez at 140,then you'd probably come away with the impression that he's just a really aggressive,one dimensional pressure fighter.But if you watch him at 130 and 135,in particular his fights against Ramirez and Lockridge,you'll see that he's actually a very skilled,complete fighter,with excellent footwork and brilliant at picking his shots.A very good counterpuncher too.
You'll see flashes of a peak Chavez in his rematch with Randall.Emanuel Steward commented that he had no idea that Chavez was that good a boxer before he started working with him
Tyson tended to become more of a stationary target when he was frustrated with an opponent and his own inability to get off the type of combinations that he would like to.
Usually occured against survival experts like Green and Smith.
