Bonavena was vulnerable to a sharpshooter like Jimmy Ellis in particular, not a puncher like frazier. He would have used his awkwardness and strength to the max vs Shavers. If Ron Stander could do Earnie in, it would be nothing compared to Ringo. I stand by my of '09,..a fifth round ko with a left to the head by Oscar.
