Giardello by decision. for me he would eventually outbox and outmanuver Apostoli.

At his very best, ala Tiger III I think Joey would beat Fred.

Oh man. I don't know. Apostoli was a force. And Giardello may have been than LaMotta. This one is worse than Conn-Marshall. Damn.

Both in their respective primes ? Fred Apostoli for me. A great fighter having to take on the likes of Freddie Steele, Billy Conn, Al Hostak, and prospering...

I think Apostoli would stay on top and wear Giardello down. He was a dynamo, as Billy Conn said.
Apostoli by unanimous decision.

Based on picture evidence I'm going with the very masculine looking man over the 7yo boy. Apostoli, more ***y than ***y Sergio?

Apostoli impressed me with his skills....he looks really good.....

And he is proven enough to beat probably anyone at his best......
Im a fan of Giardello and his counter-puncher style.......but my vote goes to Apostoli, the better defensive fighter IMO, in a hard and skillful fight, really close one....
Apostoli SD.....

Apostoli's best filmed performance is probably against steele but even then despite being a force he doesn't look massively impressive in comparison to some of the other greats.

I think basilio looks better than apostoli on film despite not being as hard a puncher.

Joey could outbox apostoli but it'd require great discipline to prevent apostoli building unstoppable momentum.

I think joey should be favoured to take it on points but it wouldn't be a huge shock if fred scored a come from behind stoppage.

Am I completely crazy for envisioning a cotto v margo 1 type fight but with the turning point being about round 11 instead?

I think fred finishes strong but i'm betting on joey to withstand the attack and take a 9-6 type decision.
