Default Re: Jouis Walcott III

Walcott got better with age. Look at for example, the opposite--Tyson, Floyd Patterson---heavyweights who peaked very young, by age 20 they were in primes. Larry Holmes is an example of the norm, a guy who got ko'd by Duane Bobick in Olympic team box offs, and was written off. Got better, but did not have to wait till he was 35 to peak. Walcott is end of spectrum, he hit his best years and best physical skills at and after age 33-34.

Louis was greater, and better in prime. But in louis comeback years walcott beats him, maybe embarrasses him ( and I dont mean that in demeaning way towards louis)
