Default Floyd Patterson vs Ezzard Charles

Another fight that I have always wondered about. Who wins and hoe does it go down?

......ezzard was always most dangerous when he was stung. ffloyd would sting him and make him fight at top level and ezzard would knock him out.

Intruiging match up I lean towards Charles, but he was clinically taken out by Walcott's rising left hook/uppercut . Floyd had speed ,and decent power.

I just think Ezzard was a bit more solid and durable in his prime.

I guess very few people have any interest in how a fight between these two would progree....either that or yet another monotonous Dempsey/Wills thread is consuming everyone.

I go back and forth on this one and am not convinced...But on this day I think that Floyd would outwork Charles, to a very close decision.

Patterson's body flurries would cause Charles to gas by round 9, then floyd rallies.

Yeah I think Patterson would outwork Charles. He wouldn't stop him, considering Charles took all Rocky Marciano had first time round.

I'd look at Charles' fights with Valentino and to a degree Layne for this one. He was given some trouble by their dogged persistence, though he was able to catch them, hurt them and clinically finish them. Don't think this would happen with Patterson.

Patterson by decision.

Patterson would get stopped by Charles who was too solid, I think there would be some fast exchanges but Ezz had the better chin and more solid combinations, EZZ had the best 3 piece

Great match up. Patterson hits harder, Chalres was more durable.

Close to 50/50. I would say Patterson, just because Chalres like to go to war, and Patterson has the faster hands and hit harder.

Would you stop spreading this myth?

Charles of the late 1940s did not go to war, he boxed elegantly..sticking and moving with fluid footwork. He was an outside boxer in his prime, not a infighter.

At Heavy, Floyd by UD. IMO EZZ is a top-five ATG!!
I wouldn't rule out a Charles decision but, by the time he got to heavy, his best was behind him. We're talking pvp heavy here?

Sidebar: why do so many posters, when given a fantasy matchup with Floyd, always say it would end with Floyd being "counted out"???

I saw Lennox Lewis stretched out, I saw Mike Tyson reaching for his mouthpiece like a baby reaching for its pacifier. I saw Joe Louis face down...9...10...11.
I never saw Patterson ''counted out" in a puddle??

Becuase people like to regurgitate all the popular mantras that they hear on here, and then use them to try and sound knowledgeable....It gets quite tiresome...

Patterson gets counted out'
Frazier loses to every puncher he faces
Frazier only had a left hand
All you have to do is stand up to Tyson and not be intimidated
Chavez ruined Meldrick Taylor
etc.....

Prime for prime, I could see this one being a nailbiter, a closer fight with lots of action like Floyd's fight' with George Chuvalo. A legitmate draw would probably be the favourable decision to reward both men coming to fight.

I can see Charles landing early and often in the early rounds, maybe dropping Floyd dangerously more than a couple of times towards being stopped. Floyd survives, rallies in the middle to late rounds and returns the knockdown favour.

Tough one to call when both men are at their best.

At LHW Charles, at HW Patterson.
