How in the world did people suddenly start believing carnera was a great fighter?
We put fairy tales aside and recognize that becoming a two time defending lineal HW champion is a major achievement in the sport of boxing.
Then, we look at how he fights, and we see how clearly effective he is.
We use the last 20 years of data and see that SHWs have similar stylistic trends and stigmas about their overall abilities.
Primo has to rank among the best Superheavyweights.
All this time he has been ranked among heavyweights when he always was a Superheavyweight.
Among SHWs, Primo has to be top five. He has to.
Just when one thinks he's seen it all you come up with yet another hall of shame post.
Did you think of this, or did you get it from Bert Sugar?
Like i'd copy Bert freaking Sugar
This is without scratching the surface ..
Come on, your going to put Fury there already! Surly that is a mistake? It must be a blooper.
His body of work includes punching himself in the face, suffering knockdowns against Cunningham and a Canadian guy. He was whipped by chisora and McDermott but got the decision, failed a drugs test...but he is a good singer, I’ll give him that much.
Think of the body of work Carnera has by comparison.
Joshua is still learning on the job. You gonna boost a kid this early? That’s a sure fire way to end up with egg on your face isn’t it?
Bowe, Lewis, Vitali, Wlad, Joshua.
To his credit though, Primo was a top five Italian Superheavyweight. Definitely better than Pianeta but worse head to head than Damiani.
Lol had to pick two current fighters. I’m dead
Gotta love Bert Sugar.
There really haven't been that many super heavyweights if the standard is 6'5 and up .. perhaps you can name the one's he was better than .. BTW I forgot Wilder .. if we were going to set the bar at 6'3" and 215 or more than
Really the shorter list by far is who he could beat ..
