Re: Ken Norton -vs- Floyd Patterson
I think this is a close'un to call. Both fighters have average jaws, and both could bang hard so a win for either inside the distance might be likely. Patterson had the definite edge on speed and boxing skills, whilst Norton was a very powerful, awkward and versatile fighter who crowded opponents and proved an absolute headache to keep safely at bay.
If Patterson chooses to box smart he'd probably stop or outpoint Norton, if he tries to brawl- Norton has the style and agressive style to take him out. I'll stick to my instinct and say that Patterson stop him late on.
Patterson TKO10 Norton
