Re: Rubin Carter...
Carter was indeed huge, and savage with it. I think My Dinner With Conteh might be the guy to ask but here's my two cents.
He was strong as an ox but was outmuscled by Tiger. He basically outpshyched Griffin, I think he basically said that Griffin was a woman who wanted to be raped or some such terrible thing and Griffin went a bit nuts.
He could be outboxed I feel, but few would out muscles him and he was one of these guys who you just couldn't afford to play at his own game...or you'd lose.
Guts, chin, machisomo...a less talented stronger Duran maybe? Good fighter, would have made a fortune today.
