You ever see anyone block Bowes righthand? Watch the Gonzalez fight and you'll basically see how Bowe would deal with a taller man thats back pedaling (not to suggest Gonzalez is in Vitali's league). Not sure I would classify Bowes overhand right as sloppy either he got good leverage for a big man.
