    Possibly , but when I think of speedy fighters I think of, Ali, Ray Leonard, so mainly on foot work, is that what we talking about ?

    Gene Fullmer is another guy. He had a sub 40% knockout rate and really won most of his fights through attrition. He was a classic swarmer whose strength was his strength and stamina. Hand and foot speed was below average and power was accumulative.

    He was a steam roller ...just the fact that Dick Tiger was able to back him up , is an impressive feat
