Patterson offered a much tougher proporsition, with greater stamina, speed, movement, power and less defensive and negative.
Whom did Patterson defeat who was even in the same ballpark in size as the 6' 4" 260 lb Simon. I think the biggest rated fighter Patterson defeated was the 208 lb Chuvalo. We have to take a lot on faith to assume Patterson beats Simon.

And I don't think Patterson's movement is nearly as good as Walcott's.
