    This should be a required training method.

    It would bring an end to pussies masquerading as successful " fighters."

    The first Maidana fight provided a good idea.

    Nowhere to run or clinch and no room to duck below the waistline? Would end badly for Floyd with anyone with power.

    I can see Joe Cortez running up to the booth with tears streaming after the first punch lands on Floyd.

    Seems like besides power, aggression & volume, unlike in much of boxing, shorter limbs are an advantage.
    Hard to get shots off & proper leverage if you are a Wilder, Fury, even Foreman compared to a Frazier, Tyson, even Ruiz.
    Chin would be very important too.

    Depends on who is in the phone booth with him. He will survive against most but he will be beaten to a pulp if the opponent was Duran.
