It was close between jersey and Floyd but in the end Floyds regaining of the title won out.

There's noone I'd favour to beat rocky with a 200 pound fight night limit.

Jersey Joe did pretty well first time round, Walcott did go 2 to 2 with Ezzard Charles, i'd see him as greater than Floyd, i don't think Floyd could have done what Walcott did against Charles and Marciano ect

He did well but ultimately got knocked out.

Maybe the style matchup isn't as favourable for Floyd, I won't disagree there.

Still i mean he was putting a whipping on Rocky, if he wasn't nearly 40...
