Default Re: Billy Conn vs Gene Tunney

I think the weight matters...At heavyweight I'd favor Tunney. He would have been stronger and experienced. Tunney put all the pieces together at heavyweight. Tunney's bodypunching at heavyweight could really trouble Conn. At light heavyweight I'd go with Conn because as strange as this sounds this might turn into a more of a fight than people realize...Conn wouldn't be at much of a strength disadvantage here...and he would be the more experienced operator at this weight.
