Marciano coming back and clobbering Patterson. 50-0-0 would look pretty good

That would've been interesting (i pick Holmes, then and in the 70's) but i thought their fight in the 70's would've been more interesting.

When a fighter is completely shot, his punch resistance is extremely weak, speed rapidly diminished, and he's a shell of what he once was.

Im not saying Tyson was in his prime against Holyfield, but he was still a damn good fighter.
I agree. tyson was not shot. he landed some great punches on holyfield in that fights. Mike was still good. He just wasn't prepared to go past 6 rounds. too much abuse of his body

It says I think June 9th, 1984. It has a picture of Larry jabbing at Coetzee, and Coetzee jabbing back. Same style as the Holmes-Cooney poster.

I agree that a fight in the 70's would have been interesting, but a fight in the 90's would show who aged better. Seeing how they are the same age.

Old Foreman ducked old Holmes. I also find it interesting Foreman refused to rank Holmes in the top 10.

They don't like each other. Honestly, if they met and had any serious conversation for any length of time, they would end up beating the piss out of each other.

Wonder who would win that one..... Holmes would be my guess. He never ducked Foreman.

I still rank Holmes ahead of Foreman because of what I seen as ducking by Foreman.

That counts for absolutely zero other than exposing ridiculously blatant bias
