Default 1957-59 Gene Fullmer vs 1962 **** Tiger

I think that this version of Gene Fullmer is able to handle **** Tiger although not easily. The 1962 Gene Fullmer had declined enough that he couldn't keep up with Tiger when they fought in San Francisco. I was reading an article on that fight and it said that Fullmer was leading in the scoring after the first seven rounds and then he was badly cut and from then on Tiger gave him a beating.The previous year Gene fought a war with Florentino Fernandez and faded at the end of that fight maybe because he fought the last four rounds with a broken elbow. What great fights those were. What are your thoughts?
