Actually I think Kostya's handspeed often gets underrated.

He had pretty good handspeed early in his career.



Jeff Fenech said Kostya was P4P#1 after Kostya beat LaCoursiere in 1993.

That's 10 years of total dominance.
Same with being a slow starter and lack of defense. All three areas were very much the opposite early in his career and mid way through there was a steady neglect until the Phillips loss, after which he tried to re-polish himself to an extent although the handspeed didn't return on account of him filling out and becoming more muscular as he aged.
