What makes an out-fighter an out-fighter, or a boxer a boxer? On this week’s Heavy Hands we look into the behaviors that let us define fighters’ styles.
First up, there’s Neil Magny, often sold as a rangy boxer but, as he showed in his upset win over Kelvin Gastelum last weekend, actually much more effective on the inside. Then there’s Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, the new pay-per-view king of the boxing world, whose peculiar blend of power and boxing skill makes him a uniquely dangerous–and uniquely limited–opponent. Finally, we analyze the stylistic talents of Tyson Fury, set to battle Wladimir Klitschko for–well, all the heavyweight titles on Saturday, November 28th.
