    I like Louis in a rematch. I also forgot how late in Joe's career they thought honestly.

    Yeah they didn’t start thinking until the end of Joe’s career.

    A big feature in Rossman-Galindez II was that Mike broke his right hand and if you watch it had a lot to do with how it went after that.

    That’s interesting. Would that be before or after Louis lost to Marciano?

    Louis was certainly in regular fighting shape during 1951 and his win over Savold was certainly worthy of a direct shot at the title.

    I kind of think Charles was too good for Louis by then, but Joe might have done a bit better in a second fight.

    I don’t think Floyd would have made it to the ring without fainting in a third match, so different haha.

    I really disagree with this one. Corbett did well early, but it was by no lucky punch that FItzsimmons won. He really seems to have worn down Corbett as the fight went on.

    I think Fitz was generally just a far more adaptable and smarter fighter than Corbett.

    Vitali and Lewis II would have been good, but I can understand why Lennox retired.

    Vitali, I think, should have looked for a Byrd rematch.

    Salido-Lomachenko II.

    Actually, since it's being celebrated, a Holmes-Norton rematch, this time without Larry's dr. proven damaged left arm.

    Larry seemed to learn how to step into his punches a lot more after the Norton fight, so I don't think Ken would have made the 13th round in the rematch. The former landed quite a few rights in the first match, but you could see how he wasn't really following through like he should have. That right got sat into and became more authoritative as of the Evangelista fight.

    This would be directly after their first fight. He was to far gone by the time he got to Marciano.

    Marquez-Pacquaio I. I had it a draw. I thought Marquez deserved a share. Pacquiao wins.
    Marquez-Pacquaio II. I had it a clear Marquez win. I can't identify how Pacquiao was given the decision.
    Marquez-Pacquaio III. I had it a clear Marquez win. I can't identify how Pacquiao was given the decision.
    Marquez-Pacquaio IV. Marquez knocks Pacquiao unconscious up at 147lbs. Absolutely no way that would have happened again; Pac beats him in THIS fight, 11/12. Uncle Bob wouldn't spring for the rematch (Marquez wanted twenty million) but there is no way Manny could have lost to Marquez again at this weight. Huge missed opportunity.

    I'm curious as to George's thoughts on this one.

    It is pretty darn cool he chose to go out on top. Hard to fault that imo.
