I just watched Mayweather versus DeLoya(I can't believe HBO gave it away on the basic service
That was a good example of ropes versus agility and speed.
The first few styles could just be the main important ones:
inside versus outside
pin against the ropes versus speed
hurt versus scoring points
Another interesting thing is that according to the tale of the tape Floyd Mayweather had a longer arm length even though Oscar De Loya has a longer wingspan.
So maybe three stats height, wingspan, and arm length(mesaured from the arm pit to end of the clenched fist). Everybody before the fight thought Oscar had the reach advantage, so maybe the wingspan can slightly mask a fighters true arm length.
And there might possibly be a new area to attack besides head and body, the arms and shoulder. Attacking the arms and shoulders would decrease the opponents defense and decrease their handspeed.
Because shots to the arms and shoulders are considered blocked shots they would all read as white blows.
