And that cruiser would still knock out the heavyweights
Also never compare Marciano to Beterbiev, there's such a skill and talent gap there that...
It's never brought up in his head to head matchups. Imo it's one of the reasons I find it nigh impossible to see him beat Marciano
I've heard Vitali called the chin GOAT even though he really rarely got caught. A combination of his defense, power and imposement of his size. I...
They overrate him because they cling to ANYTHING they can hate Dempsey for. That's why the entire "fab four" of McVea, Jeannette, Langford (in a...
Follow up to Crowcroft's thread
- Lewis's power
- Marciano's defense
- Ali's ability to be caught
- Liston's power
- Tyson's chin...
Actually I'd say that Ali's power is overrated tbh. Anyways:
- Marciano's explosiveness
- Burn's power & chin
- Walcott's power
- Moore's power
Amazing story, thank you for sharing that
What are your opinions on "Unbeaten: Rocky Marciano's fight for perfection in a crooked world" by Mike Stanton and "Ali: A Life" by Jonathan Eig
I plan to read it once I'm finished with "the abysmal brute"
I knew he wasn't and I was kind of angry about it, he absolutely deserves it. Boxing needs more like Jackson. Didn't duck anyone and gave his...
I'm not going but I'm ecstatic to hear that the Hawk is being added
Once again we have a monster from the 1910s-1920s
Leo Houck was a boxer who fought in all available weight divisions. He started out as a...
And I meant for Baer. Baer was great at parrying and generally controlled the distance with his long reach and power
Baer hit hard, and Carnera...
I cannot stand modernists who don't understand the purpose of putting your guard low, despite the fact that fighters nowadays like Loma do it all...
As much as I think AJ is the best champ of the 3 right now, they each remind me of 3 fights from the Louis era
Wilder: Max Baer (wild hard...
Losses to all IMO. Losses the Baer fight quite brutally unless Max shows up goofing off
The difference for me was that Tunney was a light heavyweight and Robinson was a welterweight, but Robinson def >>> p4p
I'd rank the Robinson win right under the Tunney win as Greb's second best win. It'd go something like
Corbett makes him look like a fool for the early rounds but Baer catches up to him with something fierce in a monster right hand. He proceeds to...
wouldn't go this far
Clearly you need to rewatch Foreman vs Moorer
He looked quite stationary, I agree
Nah it'd have to be an 87-88 Tyson imo to even knock down Foreman (still think Foreman wins)
I think Foreman beats 90s Tyson 10/10 times
Did I ever deny Wilder wasnt a great puncher? Any man that knocks Fury down twice and has 42 fights with 40 KOs is clearly a great puncher. I also...
Deontay made Breazeale look like he was moving in slow motion. Quite explosive
