Default are eastern euro's born as tanks or what!?

every single eastern european i know who box here are all friggin tanks, like white mike tyson's, they all have veins ripping out!

most of the black fighters here are also naturally very ripped even when they are not training, but they dont have the bulk as the euros.

genetics?

Funny, a lot of Slavs tend to carry a bit of excess fat even when they're in very good shape. Look at Vassiliy Jirov or Sultan Ibragimov. Even Kostya Tszyu, while he was in shape, was never super defined, he was just built. I think it's just individual genetics.

they carry excess fat but all have huge amounts of bulk, and their veins are usually popping out.

That could be a skin tone thing. The vascularity and what not; because I have lighter skin and I think white people's skin can tend to be a little bit thinner, the veins appear much easier. It could also be from the amount of working out they do and how good of shape they're in, that can cause vascularity to increase too. And obviously not all have huge amounts of bulk, although I do believe you tend to see much more heavily built guys coming from Eastern Europe and Russia.

in my gym there are only a few but there is a gym not too far from me which is full of russians and albanians they are strong and usually bully their oponents around, but they all have that upright style, its like their backs are always straight.

Sounds like PG County. Everyone who couldn't afford SE DC anymore moves there. Makes PG an...interesting place, to say the least.
