Default Re: If Riddick Bowe had the dedication of Marciano? Would he be one of the best?

Also, man, somebody needed to sit him down and MAKE him throw that right hand straight. Hard to have an elite outside game without a straight right hand.
I love the 2nd round of the Cooper fight, just a glimpse of how good Bowe might've been.

Great jab, fluid combinations & a brutal finish. He did throw a nice straight right for the first KD but that was a rarity.
