Exactly!! He, like many other bonafide power artists neglected to develop his skills moving forward because to a large extent he didn't have to. They get seduced by the power (who wouldn't) and change style. Rosario was another example on a lesser plateau. Gomez had some serious skills eary on.

Bronco Billy Wright was best pure athlete to enter the heavyweight ring since Jess Willard.

Canzi was a way better hitter than Toney. He also had a superior haircut.

Even types like Galaxy, Moon and of course Pacquiao who aren't great all round natural talents per se, but have certain freakish attributes.

Not what the thread asked for exactly, but nevermind....
I would not put Gushiken in the category of Harada, Park, Chang, et al. in terms of natural talent.

He would have been "even" money against most of all the other welterwt. champs.

Wilfredo Gomez vs Carlos Zarate...Gomez's natural talent was fully displayed.
