    For the same reason a leg horn is different than a cochin, they are different breeds.

    Old english bantams are a little smaller, and no, the American game bantam was never bred to fight.

    The American game bantam u see today was not bred for fighting. Some of is ancestors no doubt were but they are far removed from those birds. That page u said for me to read tells the size difference oegb and agb, i suggest you read it again.

    Will all depend on the individual birds, some oegb can, and some can't.
