You have your own opinion, I'll give you that. Allow me to make a correction. Louis goes in 10 seconds and Patterson goes out in 20 seconds....
I was making a comparison of Louis and Patterson, how long would each rate on a scale of competition against Liston, irrespective of Patterson...
Oh, Mother of mercy, another dim-witted Republican has just crawled out of his hole and thinks he knows something about Boxing. Oh, the poor soul,...
Marciano was a freak, and I wouldn't count him out.
Jack Johnson could handle any heavyweight. He was a master boxer.
Freddie Steel was a great fighter.
One more thing, Billy Conn was beating Louis, until he foolishly decided to Ko Louis, and got himself Ko. All he had to do was coast and he...
Let me put it this way, Liston would Ko Louis in 3 rds, and Ko Patterson in 6 rds.
Any fighter can win anytime with one punch. I doubt very much Louis as the Champion, would not fight Patterson, as Patterson was more clever and...
Jack couldn't crack an egg. Of course they'd fight again, and conceivably, three to five more matches.
"I've been down before, more than any other man who held the Championship. I consider it a compliment that i keep getting up." Floyd Patterson....
Schmeling is no Patterson. Max was in a dilemma, he'd held back to to fight with Louis, and could have knock him out again. It was a turbulent...
Liston is no Patterson.
KOed was my vote. Slow Joe would be wide open from a lightning bolt by Patterson. He never fought anybody the likes of Floyd.
I knew Tony Zale probably better then anyone on this forum, going back 1960. My dad and I had many lunch dates at the Oaklawn Restaurant in...
His defense and style of boxing was superb, and as much as I love Billy Conn fighting as a middleweight he couldn't beat Cerdan.
He was brilliant boxer/fighter.
Appreciate all the info on Cerdan, great job. Thanks.
Getting in the ring with Cerdan is at your own risk! Jake Lamotta even said, Marcel Cerdan was great, on same plateau with Sugar Ray Robinson.
Requesting your opinions.
