Is Tyson your favorite heavyweight? Or just one of your favorites?

Is this in regards to my Floyd question? What if Floyd abandoned the Philly Shell from an early age? Ok hear me out ok? Say Floyd who's around 5'7.. at age 16 is already at 154 pounds. So he know for sure that as a pro he need to fight at super middle weight instead of light weight. So in that case everyone he fights (Ward-Kesler-Froch-Bute) all hold significant height advantages over him. Can he successfully implement the bob and weave?

Floyd is slightly short in the general sense, but for his weight class he has a tall person's build. There are better defensive options for a "tall" boxer like Floyd.

manny can't even cut a ring off or fight on the inside let alone bob n weave. He's as far as you can get from being a swarmer. Fighting inside as a southpaw doesn't utilize the unorthodox southpaw angles.
Have you seen Vasyl Lomachenko?

Because you are coming forward and when you're moving it's harder to see someone else moving relative to you. It also requires higher levels of fitness as it is more fatiguing. Have you seen Vasyl Lomachenko? He bobs and weaves a fair bit, his defence is incredible while he does it. He is the only fighter I've ever seen who can counterpunch as he is moving in.

The lightweight boxer at the 2012 olympics Evaldas Petrauskas had an excellent bob and weave style, it was like watching a lightweight Mike Tyson.

Hey what's up man. I heard of Vasyl but I don't know anything about him other than he's an Olympian. Can you tell me about him? Like should I watch him? Should I become a fan? You say he's good at the bob and weave style?

How effective do you see Canelo using the bob and weave style against guys who's like 6'3. Say Chad Dawson. Did you watch Tyson vs Berbick?
