    What I feel are put down to often or just overlooked by most

    AJs ring generalship
    Wilder's Distance management
    Spence's body shots
    Usyks résumé
    Basically everything that Kayabel does well

    Punching power and the ability to utilize it in general is an undervalued attribute today when discussing the skills of a fighter.

    Nowadays most people talk about footwork first and foremost when it comes to skills, i mean the sport is still called boxing for a reason LOL.

    Seems modern boxing fans have no appreciation for defense, timing , or counterpunching..

    Fighters who Excell in these skills are called ''runners'

    In my estimation, people who use the term 'runner' to describe a fighter who can avoid be hit have never actually laced up a pair of gloves themselves...not even for a friendly sparring session.

    I guess if a fighter doesnt stand flat footed right in front of his opponent with his his chin up in the air like Dominic Brezeale that somehow makes him a p#ssy

    Hugging, negative fighting and potshotting are looked down on for a reason. It's boring and not as skillful. Standing right in the line of fire and making you miss and pay like Marquez or Loma is true skill and entertainment.

    I agree, imo Chavez was a more skillful fighter than Mayweather for that reason, not saying Mayweather wasn‘t skillful though.

    The ability to cut off the ring. G and Roman Gonzales do it very well.

    He‘s right, Wilder actually has very good distance management, that‘s the reason he can land his money shot over and over again, he also has great timing with the right hand.

    His whole boxing style is build upon his athleticism, distance management, power and timing with the right hand, that‘s what he does, THAT IS WILDER and it works very well for him.
