Burley could out-box, out-hustle and out-punch (in terms of raw power) the best versions of Hopkins; anyone who can turn Archie Moore into his personal skin suit needs more respect than many here are giving Burley.
ODLH is/was bigger than Burley, heavier at the weigh in, heavier in the ring, taller with a wider reach

ODLH was not outboxing Hopkins either, it was about even with Hopkins taking over at the age of 38 at a 157lb catch weight
