Default Dick Tiger v Tony Zale?

The relentless Nigerian against the Man Of Steel .Can Tiger send Zale into meltdown? Or,does Zale's left hook get home enough to halt the Tiger's charges.
15rds .Prime for prime. Who do you like?

Default Re: Dick Tiger v Tony Zale?

Whenever there are fantasy fights between highly competent come-forward fighters it feels a little mean; y'know both men are going to absorb the kind of punches that blur the lines between excitement and abuse.

It's an interesting trade-off between the combination punching of Zale and Tiger's strength. I can picture Tiger closing the deal late on; not so with the Man of Steel.

Tony is going to have to inflict a whole lot of damage in the earlier stages, targeting Dick's cheekbones in the hope that they will start inflating. That tremendous body-punching will figure of course, but how will this deter a middleweight who walked down the likes of Rubin Carter and Gene Fullmer?

Punching room will get tight for Zale; not too much of a problem for his six-inch blasts, but he will be pushed off balance and that is a problem. The gut feeling is that Zale will constantly be trying to fight-off a man who was his physical superior with a few extra shovels of grit in his soul.

For Zale to crack his target he will have to execute an almost perfect fight, drip-feeding him explosives. Alas, given the type of fight it would likely be, the more resilient warrior walks out of the maelstrom, and that man is Dick Tiger.

Excellent appraisal with which I agree.
