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

Patterson was never a real heavyweight and won the world title during a dry patch before a golden era started with Sonny Liston using him as a punching bag for two brutally short bouts. Coming back when he did the heavyweight division was far more competitive than when he won the title, he was a contender but he was never winning it again. Frazier and Foreman would have made mince-meat out of him and Ali did.
