Default Re: Floyd Patterson's comeback in the early 70's

He was one of the better "boxing" heavyweights. Had a good left hook. In one of the few championship fights I've seen I saw him KO a long, tall opponent by throwing exactly "two punches". Both left hooks. But when he met Ali in the ring he met his worst nightmare, a guy that could outbox and out punch him. An all time great, probably not. But someone who advanced the science of the sport and could hold his head up high in his retirement years, absolutely.
