Default Re: Billy Conn vs Gene Tunney

Conn by UD. He could box and brawl. I don't see what advantages Tunney has. Plus Conn was more battle-tested than Gene. He was thrown into the deep end early in his career and didn't miss anyone. Tunney was very careful in his opponent selection and made many demands to give himself every conceivable advantage. I don't respect him even half as much as I do Conn.
