Default Bob Foster vs. Floyd Patterson

Two terrific fighters with good power and skill, but sub-par chins at HW? Who wins and why?

I give Floyd a good chance at 175...he would have been a weapon there if he could have stayed and developed a bit more.

At heavyweight I cant see him losing but I think Bob still holds the kind of punch that could see him cause an upset.

At Light Heavyweight? Even for me. At heavyweight, highly favor Patterson if it's both at their best for either division.

I'm going with Patterson, via KO.
Patterson is just faster and possibly hits harder then bob. had it not been for Pattersons GLASS jaw he wouldve been a fantastic fighter, better then he was.
in a match up like this, Patterson would probably just blow away bob.

Floyd destructive KO after putting on a master class at whatever weight it happen. Floyds better at everything and more durability to boot
