the reason i posted this is that any time i'm in a boxing discussion with my friends or someone else who is a boxing fan they will always class someone like a barrera or a mayweather as a "boxer" and its just not as easy as that look at the 2 mentioned they have completely different styles. Who would you class as a boxer because being honest sometimes im not sure. thanks for your replies

manny: demonic
PBF: skilled
barrera: veteran
naz: powerful
calzaghe: quick
hopkins: crafty
jones: speed
cotto: body
