Who would win this?
Sanders easy. Bugner would run all night.
If Joe brings his A Game then he beats Corrie by a wide decision. If not,Corrie wins it by a messy close verdict.
Like he ran from Frazier you mean?
Bugner by UD if not a stoppage , he's far better overall
I agree. Bugner was pretty durable, and, he was better conditioned than Sanders. Unless Sanders gets lucky and catches Bugner in the first few rounds, Joe will likely outbox him for a decision win.
Burner by late stoppage. Bug had a great jaw, was big enough and strong enough to handle Sanders’ early onslaught and would take him out - probably in an ugly, sloppy way - when Sanders gasses late in the fight.
I’d have to make sanders a heavy favorite. Bugners only chance is to lure sanders in to deep water late and when Corrie’s tired unload on him
Bugner would keep Sanders at bay with his jab, smother and nullify Corries attacks and box to a points win, his movement would frustrate Sanders and Bugner the better conditioned fighter would be getting on top of a frustrated tiring opponent by the final few rounds.
Sanders has no stamina so unless he goes out and swarms all over Bugner, and catches him early like Shavers did. Bugner at his best should be able to win this fight in the 2nd half.
Bugner was a slighter better version of Vitali. He would beat Sanders in the same manner , off the back foot with jab and right hands down the pipe
Some people here have no clue. Sanders was a 12 round fighter in the nineties who could match Bugner's boxing skill and eclipsed his speed and power. Sanders wouldn't have a hard night.
Exactly, Sanders way too powerful and fast for Bugner. Sanders stops him or Bugner runs all night, Bugner was a big guy but had little power.
