Exactly, I don't think they ever had to choose between boxing and NBA...
I saw Joe Frazier once 'sprinting' in the Superstars show in the 70's, was like watching a man running through treacle, but he'd KO the whole NFL. It's as ludicrous as expecting Carl Lewis to beat Boris Becker at tennis. Elite boxers require skill, style and brawn. Skill acquired over years.
