Fitzsimmons was more proven against bigger and better opponents, I would pick him viá late KO in a brutal slugfest and FOTY- candidate...

Yeah, he did beat Corbett. Aside from Johnson I can't think of anyone of note that Ketchel fought.

Yeah.

Both rugged, both tough but one punches like a train.

I'll go with Luigi.

Billy Papke was one hell of a fighter by all accounts and 'Twin' Sullivan.

Good fighters I'm sure, but on the level of some of Fitzsimmons opposition? Honestly I can't say. I haven't memorized Ketchel's entire record and I haven't read up on every single one of his opponents. Excuse me for being a boxing re****. I hope I didn't offend you with my horribly inadequate knowledge. Please continue to slap your forehead and shake your head in exasperation because I made a simple statement.

Looking through Ketchel's record again I see that he also fought Sam Langford to a No Decision in 6 rounds in 1910. Apparently they would probably have met again later on to settle the score but Ketchel was shot dead months later. Wow, that makes his murder even more tragic.

My feelings exactly. I think Fitzsimmons lays him out cold, just like Johnson did.
