Dempsey, Marciano and Tyson in the heavyweight division.
Wilfredo Gomez and Joe Calzaghe in the lower weights.
Bugger, apologies mate, i just read your post :)
Hi Morlocks, that’s a pretty unfair to Hagler who had to go to the UK and fight Minter to win the 160 pound title.
As a rule American fighters...
Hi mate Armstrong was a lot further last his peak than Liston, Frazier and Foreman were. He was basically shot when he fought Robinson.
On the money Eduardo ;)
My view as well.
Thanks mate n lets just say that I won't be posting in or reading the " Lounge " section anymore hahaha.
Great post, my sentiments exactly.
Hi Kev, I voted for Holmes for that reason.
Charles is more versatile with more strings to his bow so to speak but Holmes jab, height, reach,...
Yep, I would definitely rate Holmes as a better puncher AT HEAVYWEIGHT than Charles. Pound for pound is a different matter all together though....
Whitaker has the best p4p jab in my humble. It’s not like Pea was gifted with a huge reach like say Bob Foster or Tommy Hearns who both had...
Hi Swag, I have always wondered that if Liston had such a great jab then did why the young Ali jab him to pieces. Ali completely dominated the...
Hi all I reckon “ The Hawk “ was a bit too hittable to beat Duran.
Roberto was not the kind of fighter who you wanted landing regularly against...
In my opinion Liston had the better beard but Louis had the bigger heart.
Beat me to the punch mate ;)
Hi peeps, all the usual examples have been given like the Thrilla, McGuigan vs Cruz and Robinson vs Maxim but one of the lesser known examples was...
Ali by UD.
Joe showed vulnerabilities against every clever boxer type with good feet that he fought. Add Ali’s size advantage, reach advantage...
Spoon vs Holmes for me with the Ecklund fight getting the silver medal. I reckon that is the best overhand right I have seen landed.
Really glad to see you back Richard, my experiences of interacting with you have been a pleasure.
Nice to see the regulars stick up for a...
The obvious one is Moore vs Durelle.
Jake La Motta vs Laurent Dauthuille.
Jeff Harding vs Dennis Andries 1
Evander would beat the Hollywood out of Morrison.
Off the top of my head....
Ali vs Liston 1
Ali vs Foreman
Hopkins vs Trinidad
Duran vs Barkley
Rose vs Harada
Napoles vs Cokes
Hagler vs Hamsho 2...
If Eric Morales and Juan Marquez could outbox Manny then I can’t see why Sweet Pea couldn’t.
Whittaker is bigger and better than those two.
