Liston by devastating KO
If Rocky was 7ft tall with a 90 inch reach.....
Then he would be somebody else
Imagine a prime Baer who developed his jab and defense
Foreman level power *and greater mobility. Would have been unreal.
The only thing that stopped Max Baer was Max Baer. He would be a dangerous opponent in any era.
Except when Max was serious, on his rise to the top, he was demolishing the best fighters in the world
You mean, Frazier, who's only real weapon was a left hook?
But how can you use the Louis version of Baer, you know, the Baer with fractured hands and past prime.
Are you using the Jumbo Cummings version...
No, he fought until 49 because despite earning hundreds of millions of dollars, he couldn't manage his money and went broke
Max would hit Joe like a freight train. Joe would come right to Max. No doubt Frazer would land some, but Baer's chin is like granite and...
Joe was a slow starter. This is a recipe for disaster against Max
The amount of revisionist history disrespect toward Baer is is atrocious
Some posters here practically compare him to the neighborhood palooka....
Joe Frazier would have nightmares:
If they fight in Max's era, he may be investigated on murder charges again
In Joe's era, the larger gloves save Joe from that fate, and he simply...
Joe might be Max's third kill. Dazzling power:
Max had an iron jaw and a monster right hand.
When Joe swarms in, he will eat the canvas.
This post illustrates your bias against an earlier era of Heavyweights. The fact is that all of these fighters (prime) would smash '96 Holyfield...
So, again, do you believe any pre 1950 fighter would beat '96 Holyfield?
If so, who?
What fighter from before 1950 would you pick to beat Evander? Anyone?
Good idea, done!
Both at their respective peak, who takes this----the legendary 100 years ago champ Dempsey or the +60 lb genetic freak untested Ibeabuchi??
DEMPSEY, THE GIANT SLAYER
Conventional thinking says George by KO. However, think about Dempsey's speed, hunger and otherworldly power here.
Somebody is getting destroyed...
Dempsey by destructive and brutal KO
