Lightbulb One Card Short Of A Full Deck: ESB Brit Forum Discussion

I think this forum is very good at looking at fighters styles and skills and assessing them.

Now we talk about other aspects of the greats from skills to resume's to what could of been. Topic is...

Fighters Good or Great that lacked a part of there game/skillset?. What was it and why did it hold them back from greater things?

Could be anything from skills to the mental side of things. A fighter who just never developed the footwork. Cost him major fights, a poor defence. Anything...

Discuss

Oh and ....I know we'll get 'Floyd Mayweather no heart' etc etc. Might as well get that one out of the way.

Mayweather has plenty of heart, you thinking of Bitchtali Quitchko?

I'll get some obvious ones out of the way.

Hearns with a chin.
Calzaghe with unbreakable hands.
Malignaggi with power.
Rees with stamina?
Judah with the mentality.

Talking of Junior he said that he kept it very simple beating Barrera. Said his guard was easy to penetrate with straight punches so just kept his shots straight all night.

Terry Marsh always lacked that ability to deal with a common and diverse set of chronic neurological disorders characterized by recurrent and unprovoked seizures.

I'm not debating it, i just know people will come in thread and start that stuff. No heart/balls, chicken shit all that stuff. So rather put it out there and move on to serious debate.

Mayweather's biggest problem is a lack of desire, rather than bottle.

Though I do think he's always been scared of what people would think about him if he ever lost, which has influenced his decision making and certainly lowered his standing amongst the boxing community.

Pernell Whitaker with power

He'd have been virtually unbeatable.
