'71 to '74 saw a truly great trio.
the crude and green giant (fairly average in size today) who was raised on milk fed opponents and whose legacy is based on bouncing around a chinny Marine and a shot midget, said shot midget who was at the tail end of greatness in 71 but never again defeated an a-level heavy, and the badly faded alltime great who survived on shuckster-ism, cheating and his best and worst asset, a great chin...
