Default Re: Why were many old time boxers so scrawny looking

Carmen Basilio is a good example of what I mentioned earlier about picture quality.

Looks thin and almost scrawny here:

Then take a look at him in good picture quality:

As the above pictures, and my avatar show, Carmen was far from the scrawny looking guy the first picture makes him out to be.
