And also, in Carnera's case how many are paid to take a swim.
He couldn`t even hurt Roy Jones and caught him several times, most heavyweight champs would have easily knocked Roy out if they caught him flush.
Fury fighting on the front foot would easily have knocked out Carnera`s KO victims because of their size, Fury used to be a far more aggressive fighter and landed far more punches than the clumsy Carnera used to land.
Vitali punched far harder than Carnera did look what he did to Danny Williams, we at least know Vitali punched harder than Tyson when he lost to Williams because Mike all over Williams in the early rounds and landed often but couyldn`t shake him, Vitali would have sparked Mike easily at that stage and knocked out Herbie Hide in a couple of rounds also.
By the time Shavers and M.Tyson were 29?
By their KO percantage, but do you think Fury hits harder than Tyson at 29??
Yes but the shots I seen him land in clips that I seen him fight weren`t as hard as a shot that broke my jaw in a street fight, I`m not talking about his KO`s I`m just saying most of his punches were very soft I think I could have had my moments if I sparred often with him if I had a bit of training on defense because Carnera had no training although his rear foot was often lifted off the canvas to help him move better so he had some good advise and his lead hand was extended like that of Lewis so his jab didn`t have that far to travel so he probably would have outjabbed me anyway, but if he was out of shape I don`t feel he`d KO me easily I could be wrong I sparred as a kid for a few sessions the trainer said I had no arsehole though!
He hurt Evander pretty badly though
We’ve argued that topic a bazillion times. I’m just corrected his quick maths.
But never given a satisfactory answer to my pertinent question.
KO percentages are a very poor measure of power.
It doesn't take into account opposition, and a lot more than power goes into getting a KO.
He also had Holyfield down and badly hurt, next.....
Jones has a stronger chin than Holy?! No way could a bum like Ruiz floor a prime Holy.
