Default Re: Antuofermo's chin?

Duodenum, completely agree with your assessment on Vito except for the part of his speed of hand. I feel Vito's hand speed was vastly underrated. If you can beg borrow or steal a copy of his fight with Danny McAloon it may change your opinion. Even in the Hagler fight, when in close those hands moved well. Although I laughed when you mentioned he never threw a straight punch because you are right there. Vito never threw a straight punch in his life. As for his chin, I recall his fight with Cyclone Hart so well. I think it was in the 4th where Hart let loose a ripping left hook and Vito hardly blinked, but then Hart repeated the shot and Vito quivered a little before ripping into Hart. I never thought I would see someone take two full-blooded left hooks from Cyclone Hart and still stand vertical.
