Get it right. It's the Mayweather Gym. Greb shoulder-rolled in his grave.
Walcott by clear but not completely dominant decision. 9 rounds to 6, something like that.
3. Marciano = Dempsey.
Liston is one of my favourite fighters. But also like Dempsey and Marciano. Love Tyson, too, he is SPINAL.
I was born in 1981, yet the generation of 1895 to 1910 is the most fascinating to me!
More recently, 1970 to 1985, possibly.
Some good lists, here. Well, this is my latest top 20 Heavies effort fo' dat ass:
Surprised nobody has started an Atlas vs Marciano thread yet.
My latest effort:
Not sure Broner hits the deck, but the ref stops it late with Broner's face a mess.
Am I the only person on this site who neither loves nor hates Marciano??!! There is some middle ground you know :)
Nice thread title. I'll defintely watch!
Sugar Ray Robinson, definitely :)
Good quality vid. Haven't seen it before.
Love Walker but, bloody hell, look at the size of Max's shoulders... just too big a man,
I wouldn't pit Bjorg against Federer with a wooden racket. So, with a modern boxing apprenticeship for Max, I'll say 50:50. But, as a Brit, I...
I'll say Wlad keeps it long, and the ref stops the contrst around round 9, with Ruiz a bit too battered up. Wlad may have got Ruiz out of there...
He is exactly number 20 on my list :)
The business end of my list would currently look something like this:
A fair point. Although I'd consider Louis to still be a bit of a machine at a little over 200lb (having weighed in at 200).
The Ultimate Cruisers!!!
If I may piggyback on this thread, how realistic/ridiculous to you think my next four are??!! Just the order? Again, I think they're so close......
A particularly interesting thread to me, as I make my lists on 75% H2H and just 25% resume (so my lists are stupid, in most people's eyes!)....
Wish more people would consider the 'same day' vs 'day before' weights when making predictions/lists in Classic Forum. Game changers.
Ali, Liston, Foreman, Holyfield.
But happy to see almost any order. All top 100 guys. Many, top 50.
