    So now you assume that Ruiz would beat Louis too? Interesting opinion to say the least.

    Thanks for reply, it's all matter of tastes. I like watching technical battles as much as anybody but sometimes fights like these 2 are just as enjoyable for me. Baer took huge punishement but he kept coming, he simply lacked stamina at this point.

    I didn’t actually say I’d pick Ruiz to beat Louis. I was mocking your post, but since you’re a little slow I now am stating it explicitly to you.

    Good job on callin someone stupid only because my first language is not English. I'd love to know what do you do in your real life that makes you that much smarter person.

    I knew you only used poor attempt to bash my post, but your comparison is not close to what I said. Ruiz is far from Louis as a fighter, so is Joshua. Galento loss to him doesn't mean he was bad. How many Galento fights have you seen?

    I was at Ruiz-Joshua but sadly I’m not old enough to have witnessed Two Ton in the flesh.

    So you didn't enjoy the spectacle that was Ali/Holmes??? You probably enjoyed Ali/Frazier 1!!!

    As another poster here said (which I agree with) there technique is ''crude'', there hand placement is very amateur, footwork is average at best, and just from a technical standpoint in general they look very bad.

    Take the action in the 5:16 clip of the first video where a sloppy exchange is made and a wild swing in a miss occurs or the fighting from 13:36-14:00 in the first video where one fighter is completely open, has no guard and just soaks up the punches and the other fighter is walked down and is trapped on the ropes. These are not top fighters or even decent fighters, they would be exposed badly in the mid-modern era (1980's-2019).

    Why did Holmes "deserve" that beating?

    Do you use the same standards for fights like Lewis vs Klitschko?

    Modern fights and fighters are much better than the poor standard the fights of the Nova vs Baer era set. Of course you are heavily biased ''70's fan865'' so you wouldn't understand that through your boxing ignorance.

    No you didn't. I have to repeat: Do you use the same standards for fights like Lewis vs Klitschko? It was very unimpressive brawl from technical standpoint with tons of defensive mistakes.
