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 shit.

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.
