Punching power

Tszyu and Nazarov with Arbachakov slightly behind likely due to his constant problems with his hands.

Speed

Arbachakov then Nazarov.Tszyu was average here.


Footwork

Arbachakov, Nazarov, Tszyu

This was an area Kostya clearly neglected from his more technical Kalule-esque amatuer days

Defense

I'd need to rewatch some of Nazarov's fights here.Arbachakov better than Tszyu, and this was another area neglected by Kostya in favour of his seek and destroy powerpunching approach to the pro's.

Chin

Nazarov, Arbachakov,Tszyu

Not set in stone though as Nazarov might have shown more weakness against better fighters.

Heart

Arbachakov and Nazarov never showed any weakness in-ring here.Kostya not rematching cool vince sits ill with me and he obviously didn't have the same drive later in his career with all the injuries(whereas Arbachakov simply retired)

Resume

Arbachakov, Tszyu, Nazarov

I always liked Thobela, but the ******* was hardly ever in shape.

H2H

Arbachakov, Nazarov, Tszyu


Overall P4P

Arbachakov, Nazarov, Tszyu for me, but i only bother with head to head.Could be six and half a dozen between them depending on your criteria.Kostya had the best longevity.

Dingaan is the Langford of this era (well, he's the no.2 Langford of this time after Guillermo Jones). Ended up fighting f'n Kessler and Bute! Mad fat ****.

btw despite Arbachakov faring better in these sort of "sum of the parts" comparisons, i don't think it would be a given he would beat Nazarov.

ORzubek was a viciously efficient technical puncher.

I don't like those sort of discussions. I can agree Yuri wasn't leagues ahead of Nazarov, but his level of opposition means I see his skillset as more proven.

Actually I think Kostya's handspeed often gets underrated.

He had pretty good handspeed early in his career.

Jeff Fenech said Kostya was P4P#1 after Kostya beat LaCoursiere in 1993.

That's 10 years of total dominance.

Or maybe I've seen some of his early fights?

Arthur hasn't left a lasting impression on me.

Arbachakov is Ricardo Lopez with faster hand speed, better movement fighting guys his own size.
