    I'm going to pick Tunney against him and for someone else to get another W.

    So 6-2?

    Bonvaena v Firpo battle royale for the Argentinian HW GOAT title.

    Sharkey might be able to outpoint him.

    Loses to Tunney, 50-50 with Sharkey, close wins over Gibbons and Brennan, destroys Firpo, Miske and Carpentier

    lol I agree with you so much, I’m officially accusing you of being my alt.

    Loses to Tunney, coin toss with Sharkey. Beats everyone else

    Honestly I think Sharkey has the skills to beat the **** out of Oscar but it’s also the exact type of fight he would **** up. Sharkey’s always a coin toss, lol.

    Fair chance he loses to Willard off the bat. Nowhere near as dynamic as Dempsey who was huffin' n' puffin' in the third.

    6-2. Maybe 7-1 if Sharkey is in one of his manic phases. I’ve always said Sharkey at his absolute peak could make any heavyweight who’s ever lived have to work a bit but danged if you knew when that Sharkey would show up.

    Oscar beats all of them bums. Dempsey was a phony and a fraud. Paper champion as the coward avoided colored contenders.
