Default Re: A jack of all trades and master of most of them

Kostya Tszyu

He could Box as seen against Forrest as an amatuer or he could turn it up and be a Power hitter as we all saw against alot of different opponents.

He was smart and never rushed himself in fights never got Outboxed by a Pure boxer.
He could end a fight with either hand or finish with killer instinct.

Great one, two puncher or combinations.
Great counter puncher aswell
and a All time Great i feel at cutting off the ring nobody ive seen was better at it than Tszyu for the last 20 years.

But having said all that he had one big weaness and that was strong pyshical type fighters. Bigger clinching type fighters like Phillips and Hatton. I take nothing away from them they fought well and hard and had the right style to beat Tszyu but having said that Hatton got Tszyu at close to turning 36 years old and in Manchester at 2am in the morning.

I loved watching Tszyu stalk his Prey it was great to watch its a pity he is retired.
