Lets use a peak form Maher, considering he was even more of an alcoholic then John Sullivan at their comparable worst. It ruined his career.

So we have a fighter that was about the size of Fitz, with perhaps a lesser chin. How does he do against the heavyweight scene of the last 30 years?


Maher's twice beat the 6'3 1/2 Ed Dunkhorst, battering him badly in both fights. Maher was 171 and 175 in their respective fights, where as Dunkhorse was 225 and 250.

So, thoughts?
Regurgitated ****.

Seriously ,Maher had the punchers disease dodgy chin , he was nowhere as durable as Fitz.
The bottle beat him very early on , sad to say.
