    I believe that's from either 2003 or 2004 when he was the most beset by fangirls and most tanned. Incidentally this was also the peak of his dominance... COINCIDENCE!?

    Naw it's not against you, it's against some of yours post. Sometimes it can be difficult to distinguish if you're being serious or trolling, and in many cases just call for mocking.

    I for one like Jay. He says some quirky things every now and then, but I like that. It keeps things interesting. He is a good sport about it all too.

    it's really not about race, or skin color, it's about who your training with, how good they are at teaching and as fighters, how well you take in the information and what works for you.

    And also socioeconomic background.
    Jewish fighters used to dominate boxing in early 20th century, then after WWII ended together with discrimination/holocaust they moved on to other things.

    Okay i see what you're saying Jaymuathai. But I think its too general to say what you are saying. Not all african american are slick fighters you got crawford, bradeley, tyson, errol spence jr, walters, felix verdejo and the list goes on, these fighters prefere to stay in the action sometimes not being evasive at all. Thai fighters in muay thai dont use the whole ring to move around, the only fighter i know that does that is Lerdsilla. I think most muay thai thai fighters stay in the middle of the ring or move slowly around the ring. Cuban or evasive fighters have this mentality of swim without getting wet, i dont think Thai fighters think that way. Lots of controversy follow cuban and evasive fighters.

    The less white you are the more athletic you are generally speaking save for maybe indians(real indians from india) and Russians like you mentioned.

    Yes I'm being crass but I am being serious.

    Darker = More athletic.

    Unless you're a super brownish Asian like an Indian. Also if you're a super pale Russian white, you're athletic. Also I guess peachy whites are somewhat more athletic than yellowish East Asians.

    Golovkin is half Korean, just like another heavy-handed Russian Kosta Tszyu.

    Dieselnoi is one of the most powerful Thai fighters ever and he is light skinned. There is no pigmentation correlation.

    The African American school of boxing is a product of pre segregation America. Because of the lack of opportunities offered to them they had to fight far more often as well as find work as paid sparring partners for white fighters. Because of this they had to develop excellent defence as to avoid injuries and prolong their careers.

    The Cuban school of boxing is actually more similar to the Eastern European style than it is to the American.

    I have no comment on the main topic about race/ skin color but Dieselnoi has shit tons of leverage compared to his common opponents. That counts for a lot of power
