They both UD'd Chuvalo and Machen, so since you decided to compare how they both did against Clay and use it as an argument, I'd say it's really thin. That was my point, and I thought you would get it without me having to say it out loud.

In his prime, Patterson only lost to Joey Maxim (very early in his career, and Joey was too much for him at that point), Clay, Liston twice, and Johansson. Ernie lost 7 bouts before his 30's, against weaker competition.
