I'm just trying to paint a picture of what your strengths and weaknesses are so I can direct you to some footage of a couple of past greats who you could learn a few tricks from. If you were a short, strong, quick fighter I'd say go and watch some Roberto Duran or Emile Griffith, for instance. You need to give me some more. Are you quick? Agile?

I really don't know! I suppose I throw a quicker punch than the average person, but that's only because I've boxed a tiny bit before. Compared to anyone that's been doing it for a while, I'd be proper slow. My reactions are pretty good I suppose, other than that I've got nothing positive to say about myself.

Yeah I'm starting soon, I'd just like a few bits to look at in the meantime.
