    Agreed, even worse than the beating he gave to Herbie Hide.

    Marciano's relentless attack inside and he will land the big one, now when we discuss these dream fights what are the rules, do you just grab Marciano right out of a 1950'sfight as he steps into the ring and put him in with Joshua doing the same from his best, or do you bring Marciano back in time and give him the same amount of time joshua has to prepare for the fight using Modern day nutritition and training, or put johshua in the past and let him train for the same amount of time, do you use Rocky's rules from his time or now, because a lot of guys could cut Marciano up and and have it stopped, the bigger they are the harder they fall, no matter how you do it, Marciano will not be stopped, these lazy bums of today could not stand up to the tough guys of the past, they would wilt like the wimps they are.

    Well he was shockingly poor in his last fight, his punch resistance, back foot game and stamina were exposed to an extent that was not yet clear when I made my Post.
    Got to admit I was wrong, might still turn out to be atg but doesn't look that way right now

    And if AJ ko's Ruiz in style in the rematch most will be picking him again,so why not wait until his career is over?

    Takes a big man to admit when he was wrong.

    If I am ever wrong, I hope to be as forthcoming with my mea culpa.

    He's a big puncher we already knew that, it won't prove anything.

    I would be more impressed if he outjabbed outclassed and outboxed him for 12 rounds without gassing like Lewis did to Tua.


    But with Lewis you could always see the potential to be what he ended up being. I have a hard time imagining Joshua suddenly becoming a smooth coordinated boxer.
    He seems to be naturally stiff and clunky, maybe losing some of the muscle will help but Lewis was 250 as well and never that stiff or gassed out that fast
