Check out his knuckles in the picture where he is wearing the suit.

When a guy's mitts look like that, it's a good sign you don't wanna start any shit.

I agree! Durable as hell. He knocked out a man in the 32nd round I believe it was? I used to have an old ring magazine where an old article was featured of him explaining his right hand punch. He would miss with a left-hook on purpose swinging as far to the left as possible before launching back with the right to get maximum leverage. One of my all times favourties. I'd love some more footage on him to be discovered.

Jeez. The only way you get knuckles like that is from years and years of breaking them on people's heads. Stan was probably one of the best street fighters of all time, his book covers some crazy situations he got himself into...and his fighting got him out of.

Even Baer's 13" fist doesn't look all that big compared to Carnera's 14.5"
