Yeah he thinks The Cleaver beats damn near anyone.
I think at one point he said he thinks the Big Cat would go through every champ, without being in serious trouble...
I mean, I also favor Williams to run the gauntlet, but let's be realistic here. Guys like Ali, Foreman, Lewis, etc would be very live underdogs.
You'd have to think guys like peak Ali and Ernie the octopus Terrell are live ones.
Yeah but something tells me Terrell would need to get a Williams not at 100%, perhaps a version with bruised hands or something of the sort... and even then he'd need some generous refereeing to get even an SD
OK we'll give him that one.
I'll even give Liston two wins with his "hot gloves" as long as he doesn't try his luck in a third bout. I can't imagine things will work out well for him
Gotta have that horsehair.
Or a .357 magnum
Looks like you've mostly sorted this out yourselves. About Ellis - he was unranked by the Ring, but the WBA actually kept him in the top 10 even after his loss to Lyle. Maybe they were just giving him the benefit of the doubt as an ex-champion, but to be fair, even though he didn't have any good recent wins, he didn't really have any bad performances either.
Thanks for the confirmations my good sir!!! You are an absolute weapon.
The Real Deal Swagdelfadeel will be changing his pick for sure now!!!!!! He loves a record stewn with multiple vanquished contenders.
As I said I agree with you I think Lyle gets overrated aswell, but I think Ruddock is probably even more overrated than Lyle honestly. And I think Lyle did have a better resume overall.
But regarding who wins out of the two, as I said that's entirely up to who you think wins. I don't think either fighter would be a big favourite.

Unless Tyson can produce evidence that he was ever kicked by a mule, I have to dismiss this claim as he has no basis for comparison.
And you can do that almost as much as I can dismiss the claim that Ruddock was a tomato can
