Default Has there been a boxer more naturally talented than Earnie Shavers?

His record is amazing for someone who started at the age of 22, just imagine if he started earlier

His power took him far. Natural talent though? Look at him fight an imagine if he didnt have that power.

He was average at best but he had very good power. What do you class as natural talent?

Natural talent, I make take some shit for this but...
Nassem Hamed.
Why? Because there has never been IMO a fighter like him with a style that is 100% unique those clips of him as a 7 year old kid doing the "Hamed" like awkward movement to avoid punches only proves my point about it being "Natural".

Anyway this was the first thing that popped in my head.
(I just finished watching that "Big little giants" doc on Hamed Vs. Barerra doc)
^So Hamed might be fresh in the brain.
