Default Floyd Patterson: SLICK BLACKNESS, PEEKABOO MASTER

One of the most underestimated HW's out there. - I AM UNBIASED, LOL

People forget that Patterson has the fastest handspeed

of any heavyweight.

Observe as the 190lb Patterson goes toe2toe with 200+lb Oscar Bonavena


Patterson lands a Leaping Left on Bonavena

Oscar did help a bit making himself look foolish there.

gets destroyed by sonny liston, only to embrace the inevitable and go directly back into the fire in an immediate return. the epitome of a warrior's mentality.

He changed his style after the Liston disaster.

Started using the jab more and less brawling tactics, like

in the last gif. Able to keep up with top heavies like Jerry Quarry

and Jimmy Ellis(Was Robbed Against), and Wins over Bonavena and Chuvalo.

Yep, Some People have a timid nature, Patterson is one.

At the End of Ingo-Patterson 2, Patterson immediately walks

over to Ingo to check on his well being.

Honestly he should have got the Ellis win. That really sucks on the resume since it was a title. That gave a lot of the top dudes reason to avoid him- Would have loved to see him and Chuvalo in their heydays.

War hats on.

I also had him ahead on my cards in the second Ali fight before the stoppage. Which is incredible considering it was a 38 year old Patterson

He was pretty too. Would be a star these days IMO with his speed and KO power.
