Hoe do you see Harrison faring against that version of Bugner?

How do you see him doing against the Joe Frazier that Bugner fought?

How do you see him doing against the Ali that Bugner fought?

Audley was at his best against Williams and sprott (first fight). Would enry get back up to land the hail Mary shot? Possible but probable.
At his best against Williams and Sprott?

They were Commonwealth grade fighters who couldn't cut it at world level.

This was the level he needed to move beyond to get to the world stage, and he just went round in circles with them.

There is nothing to compare realy!

Frazier flattens him in 1. Higher outpoints him.

I said enry has better wins and had a better career. I just wouldn't favour him here.

I can go with that.

No, Bugner likley flattens him as well.

He was good enough to do that on an off day.

We have to assume based on what we have seen, that a genuinely world level heavyweight with a punch, will likley beat Harrison regardless of size.

Coopers KD of Ali is probably better than anything Audley ever did

Cooper is a bit better, but Harrison has all the tools to win this bout and it'd be him I'd expect to emerge victorious were the two to ever step in a time machine and lace them up.

Don't get me wrong, Cooper achieved much more and beat better guys than Audley, the only guy of comparable size he faced was Johnny Prescott and he did beat him so who knows.

Cooper wasn't overly consistent and had paper skin. Harrison wasn't overly consistent and had paper heart. Two guys who never belonged above domestic level let alone in title bouts (Unsure how legitimate Our Enry's victory over Folley was).

A good big un beats a good little un and I don't believe Cooper has the a big enough advantage in skill to offset Harrisons advantage in size.
Johnny Prescott wasn't a huge heavyweight,nowhere near Audley's size,probably 180 odd pounds.

Outside of the possibility that Henry Cooper loses on cuts (something that only happened against Ali in the last 12 or 13 years of his career but happened against a few fighters in his early days ) I cannot see any way Audley can win.

A good big 'un beats a good little 'un but Audley Harrison wasn't good.

I agree, I just don't think coopers skill advantage is enough to offset harrisons size advantage.
