    I think De La Hoya vs. Mosley is a better example. DLH had real quick hands but Mosley was just a notch better.

    - Amir Khan vs. Zab Judah. Of course some of this had to do with length, but Khan's quickness also seemed to puzzle Judah.

    - Lomachenko vs. Russell Jr. Russell had faster hands but Lomachenko was functionally faster, which allowed him to counter Russell regularly.

    Holy was in no way faster than even a ‘96 Tyson

    Judah vs Spinks which I saw II live. Judah had faster hands but Spinks had impeccable footwork and skill which won him the first fight. In the 2nd fight, it was all Zab's superior hand speed and combination punching.
