But I don't see contrary remarks regarding the excellent shape of Haye, Klitschko, Thompson, Pulev, Wach, Wilder…etc. There are still pro's out there maximizing their physical tools through heavy training.
All that can be said is that with modern training and diet it is possible for more fighters to reach their full physical potential since a diet can supplement whatever points an individual lacks naturaly. However, whilst before less boxers might have reached quite their full physical potential the best fighters achieved their fullest potential naturaly anyway. They always did. So thats not to say the best ones were any lesser that what can be achieved now, it just means today potentially the lesser ones could physically improve some. It won't make an A class fighter out of what used to be a B class fighter. It just means potentially the B class fighter could have a longer prime.

there ARE A FEW GUYS WHO ARE IN GOOD CONDITION LIKE I MENTIONED IN MY OPENING STATEMENT HOWEVER Tony Thompson is 42 years old and I can not see him surviving the work rate of a conditioned fighter with some pressure but his experience keeps him ahead of the fat boys. The average top 40 Heavyweight today is 33-42 years old

Solis will file a lawsuit for not having enough food in his corner! Solis has to have lots of food to go the distance..............

Exactly. . There is something wrong when the elite of a division is made up of 40 year olds. It's just not the natural order of things.

Thompson is ****in old ffs! Look @ Foreman, Holmes, Bowe in here 40's....

Solis has always had this body type in his pro HW career. Body type is irrelevant TBH! Chambers recently found this out when he got schooled by a bum below 200lbs. You can change your pecs all you want it won't help you win a fight! Do ppl really think Andy Ruiz or Arreola would be more succesful if they lost 30lbs? LOL

A lot of Cubans tend not to translate well to the pro's, are unable to pull the trigger & also have discipline problems! Solis is one of these.
