Re: Butter Bean Esch vs Tony Galento
Louis was able to floor Two-Ton with his textbook combination punching, but Baer and Nova weren't able to land him. Bean can take a punch, which is a good thing, because he may have to take a helluva lot of them from Tony. If he could manage to withstand whatever Galento dished out, Tony was perfectly capable of winning a decision. And his filthy 14 round TKO against Nova showed that he had the staying power Esch has never demonstrated. And Tony proved against Louis that if he was somehow hurt, he could come back with a vengeance. Only Louis was able to drop Tony, but not for the count. A tough and durable sonofagun.
