He was as well rounded as any fighter Ive ever seen. He could box going backwards when he had to, was excellent at closing the gap, had great power, had great durability, excellent timing, great at finding angles and getting leverage on his punches from those angles.

If he showed up sober and in shape hes hell for anyone below 190 and a lot of guys above.

He was definately a more complete package than Hearns at any weight they fought at.

Hearns better hope he doesnt miss a right hand all night long, if does Walker would leap in with that crushing left hook and put Hearns on queer street.
Yeah I have the greb-walker fight on tape. Walker is great we're talking about the best if the best here but he isn't as impressive in the ring as hearns is.

Back to janitors thing of ranking guys at mw based on how they did as a lhw, I suppose that could work if you only rank a guy in one division. I.e. You dont rank Greb at lhw.

Makes the Armstrong view a bit of a strange one, where would he rank?
