Would he be successful?
He’d be vying with Tyson Fury for top dawg.
All the rest would never find a way out of his patented “COCOON OF HORROR”!!!!
Are we talking about the father here?
You mean would he be offered a pizza ad after being blown away in a round?
A bum is a bum. Save the tears for others snowflakes
A big white dude, with a fun style to watch (at a level), is always going to have a market, no matter what era.
With the right team behind him, he would get a big pay day, and as others mentioned, he would do well to last a few rounds.
He wouldnt be successful in any era.
Nope he's a can with an extremely padded record.
I've seen him in a couple Facebook boxing groups calling out Mike Tyson and demanding a rematch.
What is "successful", really? He might do better than in his era, IDK.
He would probably get a title shot against Wilder
even at his "peak", McNeeley was fed the lowest level opponents his management could dig up and even then they got it wrong with Stan Wright and Lou Monaco. McNeeley never faced the usual trial horses like Bobby Crabtree, Dave Jaco, Bigfoot Martin, Cecil Coffee et al because they would have wiped the floor with him.
The Hurricane best win is probabley a KO 1 over 45 yr old Hackie Reitman who was a practising heart surgeon.
No, McNeeley gets walloped in this era...........and any other era because he couldnt take a shot, didnt punch hard and was an average boxer at best. Fair play to him tho for getting the most out of his career
I wouldn't call him an average boxer his fights looked like toughman contest. He was basically another Marcus Rhode except his people protected him far better.
Calling people snow flakes does not really have the same effect when from what i have observed here you are one of the most sensitive people i have seen on this forum lol.
