Certainly not Marciano or Charles but Walcott certainly could, although not necassarily would, ask people who have met him in real life how big the dude was. Walcott was around 195lbs in the 1950's while juggling a 9-5, boxing and his family he even admitted there was about a 10 year period where he was basically always hungry/starving. Give him a modern upbringing with modern food and dieting, some weights, the fat percentage of most top heavyweights nowadays, some PEDS and see how his weight would go up.
