Re: So, tell me about Duane Bobick...
Bobick had some ability. He developed very quickly and was a very solid amateur; compare his relative development by 1972 with that of Holmes, for instance. As a pro, he wasn't as big a puncher as his record would suggest, but he had some power and a lot of strength/aggression. He was much more technically sound that a lot of people think.
He was also by many accounts exceptionally racist, and never recovered his confidence after the Norton loss. Of all the white (American) hopes that came after Marciano, I'd say he was the least amiable.
