Re: Azumah Nelson @ SFW/JLW
I think he's an ATG. What he had that was great was physical strength and stamina. I think he was a good boxer but had some limitations/flaws that would be exposed buy exceptional technicians. I don't think his footwork was great, he threw a lot of wide punches, and he squared up a lot.
I certainly rate him higher than Camacho as a fighter, but Camacho at 130 could be a nightmare for Nelson. Chavez woul be a great matchup but I think Chavez's underrated defense and slickness inside edges it. But guys who are there to be hit from around his era like Lockridge, McGuigan, Mitchell he beats. Fenech was a beast in his own right, but I generally don't think that's the blueprint to beating Nelson.
