Aye, body make-up can be VERY DECEIVING. Just because a guy looks big, doesnt means he's actually powerful. And sometimes he's much weaker than expected. And vice versa. Skinny guys can have hidden power, aka "wirey". Thomas Hearns. Athletically gifted.
A good many times ive wrestled guys bigger and stronger-looking than me, and end up just manhandling them on the ground. Same thing in wrist-wrestling...
