Monzon would win by a ko or tko. Graham would take too many right hands and just be roughed up too much for his own good. Monzon ko 8.

the thing for me about monzon is that i cant picture any fighter not being forced by him into fighting his fight. monzon just bosses guys around or hypnotizes them and never lets them fight any other kind of fight other than the kind he likes. its just very hard for me to think of any tactical way to go about disrupting monzon, he was the most in control fighter of all time.

Monzon close decision, Graham would win the early rounds with his speed, angles and better defence. Monzon would get his jab going, timing him with jabs and rights as the bout progressed, the jab generally dictating the rounds but also scoring more rights and bodyshots and being more efficient down the stretch.

Monzon 9-6 maybe as close as 8-7

Monzon would time Herol with a heavy right at some point in the fight, probably late, and stop him.

And I don't think Graham had a shit chin or anything but he was open to a shot that Monzon threw well. Kalambay could hurt him badly with it late, Jackson sparked him early. Monzon heavier puncher than the former and, goes without saying a lesser hitter than Jackson, but he'd get the job done after taking a good few rounds to fathom what the **** 'Bomber' is doing.

Graham was good, Monzon was great. This is a match between two different levels of fighters, yes Graham had a tricky style but thats not enough to overcome the huge difference in class between the two of them, it might take a couple of rounds for Monzon to get use to Graham's unorthodox style but once Monzon settles in and gets his rhythm going he will pick Graham apart before catching him with one of his right hands that knocks Graham out.
