Being faster really helps with not getting hit as much. I'd wager you'd get hit more in heavyweight at 190ish (with a bunch of other guys who weigh 190ish) than you would in Super at 210 or so. Super is full of fat, slow people. There are the occasional freaks of nature like my friend Demico who are like 6'5" 255 with 8 percent body fat and nearly seven foot wingspan, but he doesn't really box, he fights MMA. Those people comprise about 3% of the super heavyweight division, IME.The other 97% should be all technique fights.
