he's just asking who the best toe to toe fighter is. I pick Louis, although p4p it's Rocky imo.

Max Baer might be worth a mention.

Even Joe Louis knew better than to stand toe to toe with him.

Also when did Foreman ever show signs of mental weakness? He came of the canvas twice against Lyle and against Young fought to the point that afterwards he collapsed and had visions of Jesus that says something about his heart.

I really like Marciano as perhaps numero uno P4P what other 185lbs does anyone see standing right in front of him and outslugging him? With his combination of power, chin, stamina, aggressivness, workrate and heart. I certainly don't see anyone.

I'd also rate Dick Tiger righhhhht up there he was a minitank I've never saw him budge at Middleweight. McCellan at Middleweight would have to be another his power was ridiculous, as well as his chin and aggressivness. Dude had alot of heart too.

So, Wlad has a great chin then, I suppose.

If you've ever been hit square on the jaw and had the choice in the back of your mind to pack it in, panic or see Jesus, you might think differently.

P4P Hell yes! and in total he would be up there for certain! He really had alot of qualities going for him didnt he, not many hard punchers have a good work rate let alone a good chin to boot, what a guy!
