    Corbett is considered the marquee win of Fitzsimmons at heavyweight. It is what separates him from the other middleweight power hitters in history. Curious to see what others think about the modern punchers chances against Corbett.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we saw a Corbett stoppage here.

    You know, Corbett had big trouble with the smaller, powerful Jack Sharkey, who was a bit bigger than Jackson and a lot less skilled.

    That said, it'd probably be wise to pick Corbett here.

    Julian's power seemed to wane a bit when he hit 160. Maybe it was just age. He got absolutely out-manned by McClellan. That said, he still got his punches to the target with great quickness. This one gives me a headache.

    Jackson s power could turn the fight his way suddenly, out of the blue. But I'm more inclined to think Corbett keeps one step ahead and boxes cautiously. If this fight is slated for 30 odd rounds, then I can see JJC stopping Jackson somepoint late. But it is a risky fight for James!

    It’s very difficult to nail an ever moving elusive fighter especially one in superb condition such as prime Corbett. Jim runs circles around Jackson ultimately stopping him within 8 rounds.

    Honestly my money is on Jackson by stoppage

    I'd pick Corbett UD but Jackson really did have freakish p4p power that could carry over to HW with perhaps a bruising success. I don't think he could break Corbett down though, too distant and fast.

    Jackson's first 3 fights at 160 ended with 1 punch knockouts, one of them against a highly regarded Herol Graham
