I think that comparisons with Ezzard Charles would be made.
Also much depends upon what happens next.
Does Louis get the title back fairly...
The people who had seen what was going on in Jeffries camp all seem to have picked Johnson.
I suspect that Joshua is going to win the longevity game, and that might be the decisive factor.
Wilder is obviously going to burn out...
It that is not a no brainier in favor of Walker for you, then there is a problem.
I reject your analogy entirely.
I would with hesitation favor...
I guess that you have to ask whether Baer was better or worse, than the punchers that Corbett beat and lost to.
The bottom line is that if Froch was some fighter from the 1930s, you would heap pales of manure over him for his technical shortcomings, and cite...
I am sorry but bull****!
You are arguing that a man who carried his hands by his waist, was more technically sound than the best technicians of...
No I don't, but Carnera did beat the best available opponents, who were of similar size to him.

Results have to count for something at the end of the day.
You can't make a nobody into a somebody, just because he weighed as much as my...
His reputation does seem to hang on valiant losses, and a draw!

For the first time in many years, the heavyweight division is looking interesting.
We have three top heavyweights, who could produce some...
They were legitimate contenders.
Breazle was not!
He could do a lot with Wilder, if Wilder would listen to him.
I am not sure that he would!
He was basically going to lose to the next top contender than he fought.
Even on that basis, he would have been too much for Dempsey at this time.
I would favor Baer, and my reasoning is as follows.
While Corbett gave everybody fits, the best punchers that he fought got him eventually....
We cater for all opinions here I guess!
Yes much higher.
Those were all wins over the best potential opponent in the world!
They are more akin to a scenario where Anthony Joshua...
