Patterson had a huge edge in tools, but I tend to think Wep turns it into a Wepner type fight in there. And that Braverman would put him in with anyone and it sure didn't take much of a payday for him to volunteer the services of Wepner.
Come on Zad, Floyd waxes Wepner ANY day of the week....of course Chuck might resort to Devil Green's headbutting **** which gives no kudos to that club fighting non-contending pug...
