Bob has nothing to hurt Galento with. Tony was only dropped by Louis, and got up to return the favor. Max Baer nearly decked him with a counter bomb of a right over the top out of the corner. However, Galento appears to have been the first heavyweight in history to get through his first 100 bouts without being floored.

This might look a lot like Frazier-Foster. Bob didn't have great punch resistance at HW, and Two Ton may well have been a bigger hitter than Smoke. In this instance, one hook from the bartender might do it. (Then, they'd go off and get drunk together.)

Bob gets blown away by a big left hook, after Tony roughens him up with his mauling tactics for 3 or 4 rounds

Oh Jesus! Let's give them both 50 ounce inflated gloves. By the time it's over, Tony would have Bob looking like Beetle Bailey after getting beaten up by Sergeant Snorkel. Can you imagine Toothpick Bob against Galento in one of Tony's professional wrestling performances? (With Max Baer as referee of course.) Take away the fists, and Two Ton turns him into a pretzel. (Or squashes him with a Big Splash.)

D, I agree with all that you post,EXCEPT for your statement saying "Galento might have been the first HW to not being floored in 100 bouts."
Well in the 1930s at Stillmans Gym, Jack Dempsey who was training young Galento, was frustrated by Galento to listen to his instructions, took off his shirt, put on a pair of boxing gloves, and proceeded to flatten Galento with one devastating left hook. Lou Stillman and Ray Arcel testified that Galento was out cold...For what it's worth...

Touche, Burt! A story I discussed here myself before you came on board. "That's how you throw a left hook Tony. Now, go get yourself a manager!" I should have specified, "in competition."

But you know, there's always been this myth that LHWs can't compete against the big boys, and I specifically hold Bob Foster responsible for this. Toney, RJJ, Michael Spinks, Moorer, John Henry Lewis, Rosenbloom, Moore, Maxim, Harold Johnson, Pastrano, and virtually all other greats at 175 who ventured into the heavyweight ranks were all able to produce quality wins over quality HW opposition (or at least respectable showings), with the sole exception of Bob Foster.
