Re: How were old timers so good?
They used different stances and styles back then, just as boxers do now. It is true that there was some specifics, though, gloves, bout duration, slippery ring floor and shoes, etc. I don't think the best technicians from the 20s were better than Gans, Driscoll, McFarland, etc. Who were the best technicians of the 20s who didn't start in the 10s?
