Default recreate any fighter as a heavyweight today.....

if you could recreate any fighter as a heavyweight today, who would you choose...il get the ball rolling with jeff fenech for his tremendous workrate and balls out aggression and john mugabe for his huge power and aggression.....imagine either as h/w today...they would cut a swathe through the ranks...other contenders.....????

Jeff Fenech was not a great one punch hitter at the lower weights he operated in, as a heavyweight he would not have the Pro'Rata speed that assisted him in the lower weights, so you could end up with a mediocre punching Heavy who constantly advances, a Jirov of sorts, i do not think you can simply magnify somebody into a heavyweight, you might magnify their strenghts, but also their weaknesses, and if they are proportioately slower for being heavyweights, the those weaknesses, maskable at their natural speedier lower weights, may be exploited at heavyweight, ( Trying to Swarm Guys like Peter / Tua ect may not be a good idea)

im meaning fantasy stuff here, recreate them at the bigger weight but taking ALL their current attributes with them.....sure fenech didnt hit tremendously hard, but i doubt there has ever been a h/w with his work ethic...another good shout, i think, would be ricky hatton....holyfield didnt hit tremendously hard, but had a superior workrate to almost everyone he fought at his peak..imagine a fenechs or peak hattons workrate at heavyweight, if possible......

Prince Naseem! I would love to see a big heavy guy move like that.
Plus the over-the-rope-entrance and the handflips*.

*Just translated a swedish word, not sure it exists.

Duran. If I could bring back any heavyweight, I'd want to see Joe Louis in the ring again.

Can you imagine a 6' 5", 240 lb Chris Eubank vaulting over the top rope and doing his funny little dance?
