I suspect they were the kind of **** that either Klitchko would only use to carry their spit buckets.
Eras! Eras! get a grip Fox!
A 1952 Wlad would have been a 215-220 pounder, 6'6" with the reach and a much leaner body that could have been pounded.
A 2000 Rocky would have been 200+ lbs. and much more conducive to modern boxing.
A 52 Rock vs. a 00 Wlad? Your boy wins, point given.
Screw these mythical matchups. You simply have to consider the era, the training, the size, the fights per year (you want to put a 2000 Sugar Ray Robinson against the turn of the century's best?) They'de get their asses handed to them in spades by the greatest fighter of ALL time!
I said I wouldn't comment anymore on these 'era' matchuups but here I go again.
Ray Robinson is the greatest fighter that has ever lived!
