Pretty sure Wlad would have won this one. Good points win or a possible stoppage later on.
I think Wladimir hit harder.
Holyfield on points.
The lockdown might be getting to George if that's a serious list.
Some of Wlad's better wins or performances: Schulz, Bostice, Barrett, Jefferson, Peter 1, Byrd II, Brock, Austin, Pulev.
Wladimir was a purer,...
A few of these.
The two Golota-Bowe battles.
Coetzee-Thomas ain't bad.
I think it's a hard fight for Lewis, but he was more proven in world class than Ike, and would respect him, so comes in top shape and prepared....
Gene would win some and lose some.
Langford, Witherspoon and Ibeabuchi would have a good chance. I'd favor them. Tokyo Douglas on that one night....
I think this is a distance fight as they both had good chins. It's quite hard to decide but I might just go prime Holyfield of the early to mid...
Another vote for Ray in a tough, close one. Both can handle a brawl, but think Mercer would be a little better if a boxing match breaks out.
Favs to watch, no real order to this as such.
Kovalev beat Ward in the first Kovalev-Ward bout imo. He wasn't the same after getting shafted in that.
Kova at his 175 best was a big puncher and...
Vito was tough and underrated, but Jackson was a brutal puncher. He likely stops Antuofermo imo, maybe on cuts or maybe just a ref stoppage around...
( In alphabetical order) Canto, Gonzalez, McCallum, Nelson, Toney.
I don't think Gerrie can avoid enough of Deontay's right hands and he was a little straight up. He was strong and a good puncher, but wasn't...
Hrgovic is a more mature man with deep elite amateur experience. I think he's more well rounded and he'd beat Dubois right now.
Some off the top of my head.
Patterson-Johansson III is enjoyable.
Quarry-Patterson either one.
At the moment I'm thinking along these lines. This is not strictly in order but approximately so: Ali, Louis, Holmes, Foreman, Lewis, Holyfield,...
I have Larry at 3.
I know all that stuff you've just said. I remember it. More wins over good opponents always helps a resume though. It just...
It's not a gimme fight for Joe and he would have to be careful earlier on.
A younger Sanders in good condition can punch, he can go rounds and...
It's 55-45 Spinks imo. There's a size disparity and Deontay has good power. Spinks has the 'Spinks Jinx' and is p4p better though. At his best,...
I have Holmes at 3, just ahead of Foreman, but even that's close. I have Ali at 1 and Joe Louis at 2.
If Larry had done all of beating Coetzee,...
I'll take Baer to stop Ruddock. Max in his prime had a good chin and hit hard. He was past his best when he lost to Nova. Ruddock is strong but...
Ali '74 on points. At 32, he had the fast hands, won't be knocked out against '91 George if 74 George couldn't do it and he'll be quicker and more...
