    If both fought in their primes, who takes this battle of the chinny heavy hitters? I have to go with Seldon by mid-rounds TKO based on his superb jab and superior athleticism. Your thoughts?

    I think Seldon has a very underrated jab on top of being a power puncher. He sort of went the Michael Moorer route and transformed into a patient boxer after getting his chin dented early in his career. He played it a bit safe, which was smart, behind an impactful jab.

    Seldon UD.

    Seldon before 6
    He has a tendency to cower when fights get complicated, but his jab was very good, good power and a good variety of punches, Athletic and fast.

    I'll go with Oleg. Late stoppage.

    Behind on the cards but hanging tough. I sure do not like the low hands of Seldon--especially late in a fight. He keeps that head straight up there and Maskaev is the rare breed keeping his punch throughout the fight.

    Maskaev. He proved it more in the ring by beating Rahman x2, Jefferson, Sam and Mirosnichenko. Sheldon's best wins are only a 1995 Tucker and Joe Hipp.
