rid**** bowe
This could be quite an interesting fight and could be much closer than people think. It is by no means out of the question that Young s****es a win on the score cards by outboxing Bowe.

jack sharkey
Sharkey was nothing if not inconsistent and I think it verry likley that he would split a series with Young.

jack dempsey
I think that Dempsey could be trusted to take care of business here but it would not be a blowout. Young would last the distence but fight to survive and thus loose by decision.

gene tunney
I think I would pick Tunney as the more versatile fighter. This would not be the snore fest that some people might think with Tunney taking the ofensive and going after Young.

A Young win is not out of the question.

floyd patterson
I think that Patterson would have the style to pressure Young to a decision win.

nickolai valuev
I think Young would outpoint Valuev in a close decision.

So in all he is quite a good foil for most of this group.
