For "sluggery" and animalistic excitement, I have never seen anyone to match a young Rocky Graziano coming up...No ONE. Not as a great fighter, but his fights were like being in the middle of a street brawl ,snarling and rushing forward with his right hand
poised to throw a hand grenade....The early Graziano's fights didn't require a referee, it needed a warden..."Chickie The Cops"...Not for nothing was Graziano the best ring attraction after flattening an 8-1 favorite, Billy Arnold in 1945 MSG, which I was fortunate to witness...Rocky Graziano my favorite gunslinger....The original "Dead End Kid"...

I suppose so. I don't really split hairs like that. Sluggers and swarmers to me are pretty much the same thing. If you're not boxin' then you're sluggin'
