    Massive size difference. Could 1950 Charles overcome it??

    I remain of the opinion that Valuev would have landed at least a couple of punches on Charles.

    Charles. Given his lack of speed coordination, timing, lack of ring iq, I'd take Pacquiao over Valuev.:eusa_dance:

    Yeah without any speed,coordination,timing and ring iq, it’s a like a biblical miracle that he ever won 1 fight let alone 50 and was a heavyweight title champion twice. Those 50 wins must have been all set ups or against total tomato cans.

    Imagine how many people in the past would be “heavyweight title champions” if there were always an assortment of belts.

    The alphabet title shtick really invaded the classic forum huh?

    Valuev was completely useless .Just a huge freak show didn't even hit very hard .Charles would buzz round him all night bouncing combinations off his Swede .unless Valuev falls on him he has no chance.

    If he falls on Charles, Charles might get hurt.

    Charles beats him back to the stone age. Charles smaller size is actually an advantage here.

    He wasn't useless. Come on, his record is actually pretty good.

    That said, Charles will be way too fast and canny for Valuev.

    Man did he fight the wrong fight!. There was a reason David Haye won. He didn't over estimate Valuev's power to just push out a jab.
    Monte 2 guns, wasn't potent enough to fight inside with a giant.
