    I see him being called slow a lot. I think purposeful is perhaps a better description.

    I would have loved to have seen how accurate Louis would have been against a guy like Tyson in his prime with his head movement.

    A real clash of styles.

    He would have had to bulk up but I'm pretty sure he would have weighed around 220lbs if he was around in the 80s onwards.

    I'm not on about the weight, more the way of dealing with the pressure etc.
