Default Re: Willie Pastrano vs. Bernard Hopkins

Yes,agree with that.Think a peak Pastrano beats a peak Torres.Harry Carpenter said to Terry before the fight that Pastrano wasnt a puncher and was told that he "never hit a TV commentator".He also said at one time that Paul Pender could punch also.Got the Pastrano vs Johnson fight on tape and its a classic boxing match,cant pick a winner,though.I wonder how Johnson would have done against Willies UK opponents?I suspect that,at his peak,he would have beaten them all because of his punch.Sorry for going off the discussion.

Thanks for that info TED..it's a well kept secret that those guys who weren't supposed to have any power could, if they so chose to, send an opponent to dream land. I guess throwing power shots interrupted the flow of their jab and move artistry. Pastrano is a favorite of mine.
