Default Could a 5'11" 160 lbs SNV still be the HW champion?

Was he really that good?

He was 153 at the age of eight, and he had a sparring session with Larry Holmes that he clearly got the better of. Make of that what you will.

In all fairness to Floyd, fighting a man with a virtually identical style who is bigger and better is always unwise.

The natural size of heavyweightsb are bigger today so it is less likely.

But with the amount of paper titles lying around it could happen.

SNV could be the size of Calderon and still whoop all kinds of ass. Skills like that are always transferable.

Surely, if he was that size he would have been a gymnast.
