Default Re: Is Carl Froch bigger/as big than Floyd Patterson was?

Froch has a slightly bigger upper body and Patterson has a slightly larger lower body. Patterson was fast and skilled. What held him back from being greater was his size and chin. We have to remember the era he was champ though, coming directly after Marciano's era of light heavies and cruiserweights ruling the heavyweight division. He would have fit in nicely with Ezzard Charles, Archie Moore, and Jersey Joe Walcott. But in the era he actually fought, he held the crown for about two minutes before about five better guys came along.
