Definitely freakishly large calves. Manny Pac has huge calves too.

He developed those calves having the jump up with his left hook, in order to other heavyweights above the belt.

You cant really develop calves like that, genetics. I worked out with Tua they even look bigger in person.

Dave's legs are tree trunks.

Biggest I've ever seen. Make mine look like little chicken legs. Dude is a beast. Loved how he used his lower body to generate leverage. Terrific mechanics.

Marciano had thick legs and calves.

I don't know if they were as big as Tua's.
