The common and often repeated view in boxing is that swarmers beat boxers, boxers beat sluggers and sluggers beat swarmers. There are many examples of this. However it doesn't always work this way. A few examples of swarmers beating sluggers are: Roberto Duran-Pipino Cuevas Roberto Duran-Iran Barkley Dempsey-Firpo Chavez-Rosario My question is it seems swarmers who can adapt their style or have other tools such as counterpunching do very well, whereas those who are one dimensional like Joe Frazier and Ken Norton, get took. Any thoughts?
