Thats why everybody in the past beats the people in the present, i've personally never seen Armstrong fight, I know what he did and what made him great but i can't say I saw him fight

You ****in kidding me? Some of the most skilled fighters were from eras 50+ yrs ago. They might of been slightly smaller, but doesn't mean they were weaker or some cavemen. Pep, Tunney, Robinson, Louis, Benny Leonard, Burley, Charles, Langford to name afew. If anything TODAY we lack highly skillful fighters. Floyd, Hopkins, Jmm, Ward, and Rigo back then they wouldnt be anything too special.

I wonder how a non-stop punching machine could be outworked by pot shots.

You're such a dumb****. Garcia was a MW champ, and Hank got robbed.

"Homicides' workrate wins this, Floyd would eventually wilt under the pressure, he would not keep Hank off him.

Jeezus....so now Floyd wouldnt be anything special in these guys era? B-Hop either?

I think Armstrong's skillset would be too archaic to deal with FMJ's,.

Where in hell are Hopkin's skills, in destroying the concept of boxing being enteraining? He is the greatest myth in my fifty year association with boxing, at best a durable journeyman in bygone eras, a spoiling crafty, annoying , cheating and racist opportunist who should have retired years ago and done us all a favour, he has knocked noone out in eight years which begs the question "what does he actually execute, if not sports entertainment"?
