Even though you're probably just doing it to feed the beast that this thread has become, the smileys remain appreciated.
Bumping and poking at the beast thread! Oooooo!
This thread is like the Classic forum's favorite bar. Patrons come in, talk, and occasionally watch the Bowe/Carnera fight playing on the bar's TV.
That most certainly works on a resume level but H2H is a different matter of course. a motivated Page would be a big mountain for Marciano to climb.
Ah. Sort of a Boxing Beast Bar as opposed to a Dull Sports Bar. Can I get a whiskey sour in here?
We might still have stocks of the 1912 absinthe left over from the Johnson/Flynn afterparty. It's in the back somewhere if you want to wait around...
Ahh trust me, you don't want to be drinking too long in this thread.
You'll end up with a lousy hangover, that keeps on coming back!!
I am not saying that he wouldn't be, but Marciano was obviously a much more successful fighter. Now if all that you had was footage of them, would you not conclude that Page was probably the superior fighter?
Page could well be "the superior fighter". Maybe you mixed up your choice of wording and meant successful (career wise)
I see you are running scared Jan. I take it you have forfeit?
We have some vintage from the Rademacher Frazier coming out party from the 70s.
DJanders was a Bowe man- You have picked the winning side! GO TEAM PREEM!
What I am trying to say, is that how good a fighter looks on film, is not always a reliable indicator of how successful they will be, or how they will fare against others head to head.
There are certainly a lot of factors.
