    If Buddy Baer fought these guys, who I think are a fair selection of the least regarded lineal champions, do you see him beating any?

    I doubt that they would all get past him.

    Burns, Willard, Spinks and maybe Johansson.

    3 smaller fighters and one cumbersome bigman in Willard...

    WHO Knows?

    He would be too big for Burns, and just all wrong for Spinks.

    The rest of them probably did enough for be favorites over him, albeit by wafer thin margins in some cases.

    if Spinks could beat Mercado, a past it Ali, Evangalista he can beat Buddy.
    A better match might be Buddy v Animal Lopez
