It was a late night, half serious post but yeah, in a street fight, the ones who scare me most are those with thick-boned durability and stamina. The kind who look like weight lifters, but it turns out they were just born that way.

Some say Mike Tyson had it hard.

But this man was pure iron.
Truly nightmarish stuff.

A couple of times I sparred with a guy like Chuvalo (relative to my own skills and physical dimensions of course). Crude as hell but just teak tough and impossible to hurt. It was horrible. There's just something inherently draining (physically? mentally?) about fighting someone like that, even if they're wide open and can't hurt you that bad themselves. Just the fact that nothing you can do to them has any effect on their forward momentum totally takes it out of you. God knows what that guy would have been like on the street, outside the confines of a defined ruleset.

Chuvalo, man, what a beast. Him and Shavers are my favourite of the 70s era heavyweights. Terrible what happened to his family. The man's chin wasn't the only thing made of iron.
