With the right backing, sure, anybody can be a contender. But you got to at least be convincing against gate keepers in your hometown for ****'s sake. He would be at the Sosonwoski level today.
Blah blah this Bowe opponent came up in a STACKED DIVISION would be a contender today. Yeah, think god there aren't any old Foreman and Ocasio types today to hold him back..
Agered. Coetzer was a tad slow, and not very skilled on offense or defense. He would not make it past Povektin, or Adamek. I would also pick Haye to defeat him.
In terms of South African heavies, Corrie Sanders and Gerry Coetzee were better than Pierre Coetzer.
