Default Re: Ossie Ocasio?

Ocasio was a durable heavyweight who could go the distance and even win against some class fighters. He was a fringe contender during his heavyweight days, and faced the likes of Holmes, Dokes, and Young. His best accomplishment, was probably dropping in weight to win a cruiserweight title, which he fended like 3 or 4 times. Later in his career, he would return to heavyweight to be more or less a build up guy for young prospects Ray Mercer, Lennox Lewis and a few others. For the most part, he was a pretty good boxer who possesed some quickness and illusiveness. He lacked in power at the 200 pound range though. I wouldn't exactly say that he was a very good fighter, but you had to be good to beat him.
