    The guy literally loses rounds every fight and doesn't even make an effort to win rounds. the only boxing science he knows, ist throw his right punch, that's it!

    He even said boxing skills are not necessary lol.

    He can't jab, he can't throw combos, he can't box. There's no boxing science to his game.

    His gameplan in every fight is always the same...
    Stand there in the ring, do nothing, stare at his opponent,wait for an opening, throw right punch, hope it lands. End of story.

    Rinse & repeat. Lol

    In terms of pure boxing ability and technique, DW is one of the worst. Thankfully for him, he has a cannon of right.

    He's basically today's version of Rocky Marciano.

    Foreman is another one with very limited boxing technique, lucky for them they both have out of this world power to equalize the lack of boxing skills, which actually is a skill in itself. ;)

    It's so frustrating to watch him because you think he is getting his arse kicked then BANG, it's all over.

    FFS.

    He's extremely talented. More so than any active fighter. He is not very skilled though.

    Actually, Rungvisai is today's version of Rocky Marciano. Deontay Wilder fights more like Freddie Mills. Before there was "Windmills" there was Freddie Mills.

    Much as I respect Hanzagod for putting these videos together, some of the time he's polishing a turd, trying desperately to make a bad boxer look good. But if you watch this highlight reel, Freddie's terrible technique is unmistakable. He's completely uncoordinated and can't throw a straight punch. He was simply a brutish caveman with good physical strength, stamina, and durability.

    Interestingly enough, he committed suicide while he was a suspect in a series of serial murders.

    Hes obviously talented, at least imo. Speed and power, is talent.

    Its skills he lacks.

    And if the question then becomes is he the most successful least skilled fighter, the answer is likely yes... or very close to.

    Mike McTigue wasn't very skilled either.

    Not a lot of light heavyweight champs get beat by the welterweight champ.

    To be able to land the right hand the way he did against Ortiz is skill not luck.. What an attribute to have. The rest of his skills are terrible, hasn't a clue about the fundamentals of boxing but he doesn't need them. He can literally stroll into a fight with the confidence that as soon as he lands a shot its game over

    Rocky was hard to outbox on the inside.
