    15 rounds 50s rules

    Who takes this clash of the titans when both are slightly past their best?

    "Slightly past their best"?!

    I am no Langford expert, but it appears that within 7 months between 1921-1922 he was 4-10.
    Some of his opponents having very undistinguished records.
    In 1923 he was 40 years old + literally mostly blind.

    Frazier was slightly past his best-almost a decade before the time when he last fought at the end of 1981.
    He was retired for over 5 years. He also was legally blind for years.
    He was gifted a draw against a mediocre fighter Jumbo Cummimgs.

    These guys were greatly past their best, & Frazier who I know better was the very definition of washed up.

    I do not understand the fascination of matching really debilitated versions of great fighters.
    Why focus on guys who are greatly damaged & all their skills are nearly completely gone?

    But in this case you claim they are just slightly decline-which greatly reduces your credibility.

    They were way past "slight passed their prime" both were both totally shot at this stage of their respective careers. Y even make this thread.

    It's fascinating I think, both are completely shot so it comes down to who wants it the most, would make for a great battle.
