Patterson on points. Miller is big, but, his power is nothing that should trouble Floyd too much.
With a fair, same-day weigh in, I definitely pick Zarate. With the shady help from Victor Conte and the early weigh-ins Nonito enjoys today, the...
Bigfoot does about the same as he did in his own era. A fringe contender, nothing more.
The reality is that MANY great fighters never got off the canvas to win. In the case of people like Chavez, Tyson, Liston, Hagler, etc., it is...
Tyson KO in 2.
My bad. That matchup would be fun while it lasted.
By 1996, there really wasn't a "game" Bert Cooper anymore. He had no significant wins or performances after 1992. He was on a serious downside by...
Nobody likes Smokin' Bert more than I do.... But, Tyson would stop him in short order. Bert is just too easy to hit.
For pure punching power, it has to be Ruddock. Some of his knockouts are insane.
At that point, barring a disastrous training camp by Tyson, Tyson wins. Unlike with Douglas (who nobody at the time viewed as a threat), Tyson...
Great performance by Bernard. But, a totally dubious stoppage.
But, guess who stopped Wade? (Albeit, on his feet)
Taylor by UD at 140. Too fast, too busy. He would land twice as many punches as Floyd.
Not sure about 147. Taylor seemed to lose a few steps...
Randall was a two time champion, and, beat arguably one of the top 25 greatest fighters of all time. Randall is no journeyman.
Cooper at his best ( DeWitt, Tillman, Mercer) stops the best version of Stewart.
Love all the shouts out to my man, Bert Cooper!
Chavez - Rosario
Honestly, Chavez vs too many to count.
I remember watching the Nelson-Fenech fights live. Azumah said he had recently suffered from malaria before the first fight. And, the destruction...
It will probably be a typical Fury snore-fest where he befuddles the easily confused Wilder, and, wins a decision. Fury winning the last fight by...
Marciano by a SUBSTANTIAL margin. Without the significant size advantage he often enjoyed, Wlad would have lost countless more times. Wlad...
McClellan stops either Charlo.
The last time Wilder fought a durable behemoth with less than stellar punching power, he was stopped. This fight could go either way.
Bruno beats Nielsen into submission.
I have no good reason to put him in the top 50 at this point. He has fought almost no live bodies so far. The Wilder win is his only significant...
