Being "slick' is not just slipping and bobbing and weaving. It is making the guy throw the punch you want him to throw when you want him to throw it, so you can land the punch you want to land. It requires a great deal of mental energy and boxing intelligence that only comes from boxing.
There's a mental and physical side to it. Sweet Pea is nimble and flexible compared to Arthur Abraham who is stiff and tight. You need the physical capabilities to be slick as well
