If a fighter deviates significantly from this style then he still has some interesting tricks but his plan does not quite come together. It would be verry interesting to see him against a southpaw for example.

Now I fancy that Bowes style might be suficiently unorthodox to throw him off his game but it is hard to be sure quite how this fight would unfold.

I agree and Bowe did get hit an awfull lot....Scmheling was a shartshooter, style wise he has a good shot to beat Bowe
