I was wondering about this for a while when i came across a picture of Russian boxer Nicloai Valujev who looks like he has some Neanderthal DNA and i was wondering how effective will a Homo Sapiens be in a fight against a full blooded Neanderthal. Recent evidence do indicate humans outside of africa especially those in europe, middle east and south asia might have some Neanderthal DNA. Neatherthals were shorter than ancient homo sapiens according to research carried out on their skeletons. They were much stronger than modern humans, having particularly strong arms and hands. Homo sapiens had a slimmer body, lighter bones, longer legs and were taller. Homo Sapiens had larger legs, narrower hips, being taller and having lighter bones not only meant a reduction in body weight (less muscular fat) but a bigger stride, greater speed and a lower energy cost when moving the body, walking or running.
