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 crap which gives no kudos to that club fighting non-contending pug...
