He's a very unique fighter. Has a lot to do with his physical build. His arms are crazy long, he has the reach of a 6'5''-6'6'' tall fighter. Watching his fight with Whitehurst, it just stood out to me how he dominated him at mid range despite the fact that Whitehurst was the same height as him. His punches are crude, but insanely powerful. He couldn't throw a short hook to save his life, keeps throwing massive haymakers and shovel hooks but gets away with it because he has good balance and knows to how to control distance. Whitehurst is overwhelmed because he has trouble with Listons range advantage, and when he does start getting punches off Liston shows cute and subtle defensive maneuvers, slips and rotations. Good head movement. His footwork isn't fancy but gets the job done. Inside he's much stronger, and at range far superior and better equipped. Whitehurst was gutsy though and boxed well, landed some good shots but couldn't do much beyond that.
