    Bean rolled gracefully with the punches, a quality that that often incorrectly gives a fighter the label of having a great chin.

    And then Butterbean, at certain stages of his career, was hard to knock down, mainly because, if he tilted his head a certain way, and his trunks got tangled, and he kept his gloves off the floor, the referee sometimes had a hard time determining if he was up or down, as in: "Uh...one...two...uh...wait...are you up or down?"

    I think he could have two fights and it would still tell us more about him than Butterbean fighting with bums who couldn't punch.

    I'm 100% certain Butterbean received more damage in his very long career than Ingo.

    Have you watched a single Butterbean fight?

    Only about 20.
    Have you watched all 91, so that you can be certain none of those guys could punch?
    I should have thought the law of averages would indicate some of them might have some pop in their fists?

    It was an exaggaration from my part, but I'm not even talking about punching power - most of these "fighters" wouldn't land a glove on boxers of Machen/Patterson quality. Butterbean didn't face any world level opponents and he looked horrible against them - yes, even in won fights.

    The big names ducked Butterbean. Where was Holyfield, Tyson, Bowe or Lewis? Butterbean was ready and waiting for them. Where were they?

    Yes an exaggeration,a "sweeping statement".
    I think everyone knows the level of ButterBean's opposition , which does not mean all of them were punchless.

    But it means we shouldn't assume he's better than Ingo at anything. I'm sure Patterson would stop Butterbean.

    Yes Floyd would stop Bean,and he'd stop Ingo 8 times out of 10 imo.

    I'm not sure Patterson would stop anybody. He was a joke as champion. Why didn't he defend against Machen and Folley? Why did he make Liston wait almost 3 years while being #1 contender?
