    Berbick, Walcott would probably run rings round. I don't see the best of Joe having any major problems with Berbick tbh. Against Lyle, I reckon its a more dangerous game. We know lyle could drop em and immensely strong guy so Walcott can't be getting to C o cky in there. But Walcott could remain calm when undr pressure so he'd do so against any of lyles rampaging flurry s. He should sail through to a decision win maybe even dropping Ron along the way.

    Berbick at his best took a prime Holmes the distance, who is light years ahead in movement and boxing than Walcott is. Plus Holmes was a weightclass above. These two would rumble for a while, with Berbick beeing the stronger man and Walcott the better fighter on the backfoot. Since Walcott rarely fought modern 215lb HWs, I´m not sure he´d do to well here.
    Lyle has raw power Walcott has never seen before. I see him hurting Walcott, whos chin wasn´t even good at LHW-CW. Now he´d face more raw power. Lyle stops him.

    Remember, Quarry and Walcott were about the same size and at least equal in skill. So Walcott's size I dont think is really an issue here.
     
    Reinhardt and robert ungurean like this.

    I'd favour Walcott by UD over both. Lyle has a better chance tho

    Decisions both....but nothing was a definite with Walcott. If we are talking about his best version (first Louis fight I’m guessing?) then that version could grab a decision or KO in a lot of fantasy fights.

    My thoughts exactly, I don't think Walcott comes close to stopping either one

    You wouldn't say that the best Walcott was on par with the best Quarry?

    I think the best Walcott would beat the best Quarry, TBH.

    Uh yeah, it's kind of hard to beat a man who has better ring generalship than you when you pride yourself on your ring generalship

    Oh also Walcott hits harder

    What I meant was that the best Walcott was at least as good as the best Quarry. Maybe you misunderstood me.

    Walcott did fight bigger men. He looks like he's having an easy time vs Hein Ten Hoff who was 6'3" 219 pounds, I have a good amount of video on the fight, here are the clips



    Lyle had trouble with mobile defensive fighters, see Jimmy Young so I'll take Walcott over Lyle buts its hardly a pick I'm sure about.

    Berbick to me was stuck between good and very good. I'll go with Walcott on points.
