    Howard Winstone lost the fingertips of his right hand in a power press. By necessity he became a consumate Boxer.

    Phenomenal boxers all that had a style based on movement. Who knows what would happen if they planted there feet.

    Ottke.
    I do not agree that Loma or Usyk does not have punching power.
    Loma fought only elite, top 10- top 3 guys in divisions, also was able to finish guy with 1 liver blow.
    If Loma had in the ring guys outside of top 50, fans assumed that Loma is KO king because they did not walked 1 single full round vs Loma.
    It is easy to KO/TKO guy that is not true top 5, top 10 material in his weight class, if the boxer is top 1 - top 5 material and does have in the ring boxers outside of top 50 in the ring.
    The same with Usyk, it is easy to assume: Low KO power, because he won on points Glowacki, Briedis and Murat. No one was able to get Murat or Briedis down in the pro ring, Glowacki had been finished only by Briedis.
    If Usyk instead of them fought some 12 - 50 th ranked CW boxers, most likely handled out quick KOs. Then in WBSS he was in excellent shape.
