Default what heavyweights....???

What heavyweights today could go 15 rounds at a torrid pace, in a gruelling fight?

I know he hasnt even gone 12 rounds but I get the feeling that the HW I see today with the most old school blue collar style is Bryant Jennings. From what Ive seen he goes to work from bell to bell.

If properly trained, most. It's just that all of the elite heavyweights now train for 12-round fights (and then you have a percentage of lazy ****s who get tired).

Well that's kind of the point, most don't train for proper stamina and want to rely on size. The last big heavy I saw go 12 hard rounds was Bowe in the first Holyfield fight and that was really the only time he did it. Lewis did 10 against Mercer, but his fights with Holy, while competitive really weren't that gruelling.

The klits obviously. Maybe Chambers and Adamek also.

Of course fighting 3 more rounds would not only require added endurance but also a change of tactics with lesser movement and perhaps fewer punches. TBH most of todays HWs are fat slobs and some would be in trouble when the championship rounds are reached.

The Tua against Ike could.
And he would outwork any 200 lbs+ heavyweight from any era.

Both Klitschko brothers, although Vitali is ageing.

Outside of that, perhaps Chambers and Adamek.

Anytime the Klits have been in a tough fight they've gassed. Vits against Byrd and Lewis. Wlad against Purrity and Brewster. They're well conditioned to fight at THEIR pace. Adamek and Chambers might be suited to get through 15.

i aggree with that... klits aren't meant for 15 rounds... vitaly might be meant for more rounds than wlad because he doesn't put as much pwoer behind his punchs and doesn't carry the same muscle mass and he does keep bussy even though he looks tired every round he still manages to produce the same amount of shouts the following round.

If you look at Ike's right hand it is up next to his face almost the whole time to defend against the left hook of Tua.
