Personally, I would give him a chance over Conn and Qawi, at his very best.
No, sorry. I'll give him credit where credit is due, but he isn't beating Conn, the man never lost a fight as a light heavy in an era that was stacked with top fighters. And Qawi would be bad for his health, too strong, too savvy and too relentless. And I don't underrate Joe; indeed I think he'd be trouble for a lot of past greats. Just not Qawi or Conn, not enough to beat them anyway.
