Derek Chisora is a salutary lesson, to anybody who likes to judge historic fighters solely on their boxrec resume.
On paper he is just a...
I guarantee it!
His style was almost identical to Foreman's, and he had exactly the same stylistic strengths and weaknesses.
I can't see how this could be...
Were they though?
What apart from the fact that they stopped Lewis, points to them being any sort of exceptional punchers?
We would have to favor Brewster, though it could get interesting.
He wouldn't need them, because he has the physical attributes to outmatch Tua, and the stylistic advantage.
I think somebody is digging them up.
I mean does the world really need two Max Baer vs David Tua threads?
Then he would have flattened somebody world class in his own era.
Baer is a level above on paper, possibly even two.
I suspect that Lewis was always going to walk into the wrong punch at some point, whatever era he fought in.
That side, Joe Louis's most...
One that underestimated him.
Politically it would probably be impossible.
I assume that it must be practically possible, if it was back then.
There was some dramatic irony in there!
Back when the debate was intelligent and civilized!
Joe Louis probably would beat the modern super heavyweights, and a couple of other sub 210lb pre WWII guys, might be able to as well.
If this one was going down tonight, I would be genuinely intrigued to see what was going to happen.
You could make a case for putting Loughran or Risko into the argument.
You could probably make a case for he top three in any order.
What blew his chances on paper, is probably the fact that he stepped up after fewer fights than Marciano.
Yeah, but it never seemed to, if the opponent was actually ranked in the top ten.
The silly thing about all this is, that you didn't even need a particularly good chin to beat Tua.
I mean Hasim Rahman's chin wasn't the best,...
I think that this one would most likely go to the score cards.
Has the debate been settled yet?
This would be a fairly simple exercise.
Fight camps often turn on simple food preparation.
Like it might just be a matter of supplying...
