His name may have been Moon, but he'd be "POW"...on the moon (thanks Jackie Gleason) when Zamora hit him
Zamora was the bantamweight equivalent of Pipino Cuevas.
That may be true, but you just don't endure the kind of power that Zamora laid on you.

Lewis is the smartest, most talented, coordinated, and dangerous big man I've ever seen...so to answer the thread question...I say yes.
One of my favorite fights...ever.
He should learn to stretch something, anyway....(just kidding GC)
Shavers didn't floor the great Ron Stander...who was a lower case Bonavena, to be charitable.
Frazier couldn't budge Ringo at all,...and I think...
Probably right on the money Richard...closest thing to what I'm about to type.....
Great interview...thanks Bokaj
EE, glad to see Graham and Giardello...2 guys who I wish showed up here at least as much as Carnera.
I know I've left a few out...so I'll be back with some more good guys of mine....like Joey Giardello, Dlck Tiger and Gene Fullmer.
Besides Floyd Patterson, I've always admired, and had some sympathy for Eddie Machen...I'll always admire his fearlessness vs a prime 1960 monster...
I don't think that people here in this forum actually "hate" Carnera, rather, I think it's more of a case of us resenting the persistent and busy...
Richard, my 2 favorite boxing movies...and the I think they're the best ever as well, are "Requiem for a Heavyweight", and "The Harder They Fall".
Lovely, golden and nostalgic era for me.
GC, you're younger than our very own Dubya Dubya???
A great line up!!
That's a golden era all right!!
Oh good...please don't leave the forum!!! Lol..
Monzon to me always looked younger than his age.
