    Gennady Golovkin picked up and overpowered Andy Ruiz in a bear hug competition.

    They were the same height lmao being Obese doesn’t make you a better fighter in any way shape or form. And yes he’s obese by every definition of the word. Interesting fighter though...and FYI I’m no where near nursing home age just appreciate good boxing.

    Lol at those saying Ruiz being 80 pounds heavier than Marciano like it’s a good thing.

    He’s a fat slob who is in disgraceful shape for a professional athlete.

    Marciano and Dempsey copped no end of derision from some for struggling with the Willie Meehans and Don ****ells of this world yet now these same posters are defending Ruiz’ conditioning because he splattered a body beautiful modern giant in Joshua and thus shattered the myth of modern athletic superiority in prize fighting.

    Joshua’s loss is far more embarrassing than any of Marciano and Dempsey’s struggles with their tubby opponents given the physical advantages he possessed how he performed and what he squandered.

    The fat might have helped Ruiz from being pushed around but that is about it.

    He won the fight with superior punching and durability. Trying to spin his blubber into a miracle of modern training is hilarious. We have a new HW Champion is 6'1" or shorter, fat, and of average skill and speed...he beat the athletic super heavy with toughness and aggression. True durability is one of the most important assets a Heavyweight can have.

    Yeah and these same posters knock Louis for being briefly dropped by Galento mainly due to Galento's Andy Ruiz like physique. And Louis convincingly stopped Galento in 4 rounds whilst dominating the fight apart from that brief hiccup and being nearly 40 pounds the lighter man.

    I think Rocky Marciano might could beat Holly Holm in a boxing match. I would favor Holm because she isn't a slow no talent mob controlled tomato can. But if Holm took it easy on Marciano he might get a lucky win.

    But there is 0 percent change that Marciano could beat any half way decent fighter from the 70's till this day. I can't imagine Rocky Marciano lasting even 10 seconds with somebody like Joshua. Unless Joshua took pity on him. Joshua has no skilled compared to modern fighters. His chin isn't good enough to take a modern size heavyweight punch. Marciano was 185. There is no way Marciano could hurt Joshua and there is no way he could avoid being hurt. Again like Eddie Murphy stated in Coming to America. Every time you mention something about boxing a certain group of people will find a way to pull Marciano out of their butts.

    Not one legitimate trainer would agree with that assessment

    Marciano wouldnt even beat Ronda Rousey, let alone Holm. Let's get serious here.

    If you are saying every legimate trainer disagrees with me....you are just wrong.

    You even said "would" ....suggesting yourself the comment is in theory. You didnt say "not one legit trainer agrees with you." I think what you meant is "some trainers disagree but that dont sound authoritive enough so let me color it up with hyperbole."

    To be correct you will have to show every trainer deemed "legitmate" (who is the authority on that?) my quote and get their take. Good luck.


    So for the record...you are just a troll, right?
