Question How much of the failure of Grant, Long, Brown, Fields, & Orlov is due to their size?

Very tall boxers don't usually do well in the heavyweight division.

Consider the careers of 6'7" Michael Grant, 7'2" Julius Long, 6'11" Marcellus Brown, 6'8" Tye Fields and 6'9" Evgeny Orlov.

Generally, these very big men are too slow-moving to succeed at the highest level.

There have been VERY FEW few really big men who are athletic enough to become world champions - they seem to give up too much speed and tend to LOSE TO SMALLER MEN, like Willard lost to Dempsey.

Not everyone can be blessed with RAW natural talent like the K bros are. Sad part is the K bros are not only better athletes, but have a higher IQ than their opponents. Wladmir is a rocket scientist compared to mike tyson or ali

Double OUCH

this is very true.

most big men are uncoordinated and have bad technique and skill.

the Klitschko brothers(and Lewis), are very exceptional and way above the norm for big men.

usually being that big is actually a negative.

It's not easy to fight tall, it takes skills and great sense of distance to successfully fight tall. Look at Margarito, Pwill, Bowe, etc. they can't or had difficulties fighting tall.
