Re: What Style Do You Prefer -- Brawler or Runner/Potshotter?
Runner/potshotter sounds negative, and in my mind it isn't. I'd rather call that a boxer. I prefer the kind of style that wins fights, regardless what it is, so long as it's within the rules of boxing. Every boxer has very specific natural attributes, and I find it fascinating to see how a boxer uses his advantages and limits his limitations. It's all about winning with what you've got, in my mind. Asking a fast, counterpuncher with limited physical strength to brawl with a brawler is rediculous. Besides, boxing isn't just about smashing in hard punches and seeing blood flying - it's an art. I like watching Whitacker's sick defensive moves as much as a prime Tyson attack.
