    I dont think Chris Byrd is a bad of a puncher as many think. Like Fury, I believe he chose to box on the backfoot more often than not. Byrd didnt have great power but he could be sharp and accurate which can make up for the lack of pop. I remember him making Golota stumble with a single shot back in 04 and he had enough steam on his shots to back up Mcline as well

    I have taken one thing away from this thread.

    Every lineal heavyweight champion in history, has been on the medium to high end of the power spectrum.

    Certainly relative to the contenders of their era.

    Now that is interesting, because feather fisted fighters can certainly be very effective, even at the highest level!

    I wouldn't put Carnera or Corbett in that category but it's personal opinion.

    Parker does not hit harder than Paterson did. What fundamentals did Botha display that Langford didn`t?

    No but harder than Charles, what was my point.

    He had a defence, Langford not.
