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

He was good. He was more cautious, more tucked to his chin to avoid getting hurt or busted up. He tried boxing in and out and didn't jump at counters as much. All and all he was a good fighter still. His output may have slightly dropped. Ali was talking badly about how he was going to embarrass him during their second fight. Fight had controversy about it. Floyd threatened to leave after being told to change. Ali refused to change, but the fight ended up just happening anyway. They both wore white trunks with black trim.
