Lewis wins. Fury's beaten a 40 year old version of Wlad, and he's beaten Wilder who has never beaten anyone world class. Lewis is far beyond...
The Ghost of Emanuel Steward
Armstrong's a great fighter, but Duran's all wrong for him. Coming straight at Duran and having a porous defense is a really bad idea.
He learned to speak Italian while in Italy for an extended period during WW2.
As much as I like Chandler, Harada's at an elite level, Chandler's a bit short of that.
Definitely Johnny Owen.
Plenty of intriguing matchups, but Rocky's coming out on top.
Whitaker W12, unless he gets momentarily sloppy at some point and then it's Jackson by very brutal KO.
Archie Moore. Didn't slow down until late in his career.
Ezzard Charles. Also, don't forget, he lost several years in his mid-20s because of...
Ayala walks into a big bomb early.
Ali > Tyson > Liston > Dempsey
Only on one of SRR's off nights (which were generally due entirely to not taking a fight seriously enough).
Honestly, I wouldn't consider even one of those guys at the level of Duran, Hearns, Hagler, and Benitez.
Griffith: Probably against Napoles, especially somewhat later in his career after coming back down from MW. And against Monzon, especially in...
My favorites at the actual time would probably be the following, not in any particular order:
Little Red, Duran, Arguello, Michael Spinks, Hagler...
Really depends on the competition. Dominating a weight class vs. tough competition is impressive, but so is moving up the weight classes and...
Another Carlos Ortiz fight that is controversial is the first fight with Duilio Loi. Second one is close also.
Very short overlap, and maybe not a good fight for either. Lopez was not ready for a fighter like Arguello. However, Arguello was starving...
Get back to me when Pac has a resume with wins over people at the level of Benitez, Duran, Hearns, and Hagler.
"The Beast " Mugabi
Higher workrate, but what else does Pryor have that's superior to Leonard? Nothing. SRL wins without too much trouble.
