Folley knew his stuff but yeah like you said he was never durable and as long as you didnt let him control you with the jab you could take him. Folleys jab to the body in the Ali fight was smart though and it bought him some time.

No it wasn't a dive.
Finally, somebody who agrees with me on Machen... he had more imagination than folley. he didn't roll oiver and die vs Liston..he didn't win, but he had no fear of Sonny. He taunted Liston till the end. machen really won my respect in that fight.
