    No-one ever said other. The topic was Baer not anyone else. I made some simple very orthodox insights and you feel compelled to "defend" Baer by bringing up others. My comments were sound.

    Of course the size of Lewis and Foreman helped them. That is perfectly aligned with why i said what i said about Baer.

    Of course it means something. Jesus H Christ. It means enough for you to come racing in bringing up the size of Lewis and Foreman. Baer was absolutely a big heavyweight in his era. He had a size advantage over at least 47 opponents for heavens sake.

    You tried to camoflouge the numbers somewhat in your earlier post by posting his record against 200+ pound fighters as well as those that were actually bigger. He was bigger than heaps of these 200+ pounders.

    Simply put he is 17-2 over bigger guys. Just to keep things in perspective one of these losses was by DQ and he whupped the guy 2 weeks later. The other was to Schaaf who he pole axed 2 years later when more experienced. No bigger man beat him that wasn't avenged.

    What in gods name are you on about? Where does the word "blame" come into it!! You are in such a frenetic rush to defend old timers you can't even take things in context. Every non positive is a massive criticism that needs to be defended at all costs.
