Re: Greatest Achievement By a Heavyweight
The other guy is the cinderella man & Weaver is kind of a current times equivalent of that. But Braddock winning the title from another heavyweight slugger deemed unbeatable was as big of a journey as anyone's. Massive underdog. Funny how the heavyweight puncher's are always the guys deemed "unbeatable" and yet they tended to be the guys getting licked--Foreman/Liston/Tyson/Baer/Dempsey even.
