    Schmeling and Wills were "primitive"? You either don't watch boxing or you have no idea what you're looking at. It doesn't surprise me because your posts are more predictable than the swimming patterns of a gold fish and you seem to be even less intellectually competent. You constantly make bold, emphatic statements that demonstrate complete ignorance.

    Before you accuse me of being a nostlagic old man: we're almost the same age and I actually picked Vitali to beat Sharkey, but I know a dumb post when I see one.

    Sounds very hard to prove in practice!

    It is fun to speculate, but all of these picks carry a massive health warning.

    Only in internet fantasy land. Go out IRL and ask fighters what they think of relics like Sharkey.

    Is this supposed to be an argument? Most people don't have any idea who Sharkey was.

    I'm a massive Sharkey fan butVitali is all wrong for him. Long beatdown. However, Jack would have a decent chance with Klitscho's victims, watch him V Loughran, Dempsey, Schmeling, Carnera 1.

    If you try to fall back on the argument from authority, then you are going to lose it.

    I could find plenty of elite fighters and trainers, who gush about relics like Sharkey.

    Hide, Chisora, *Lewis and Byrd* albeit losses would both beat Sharkey, Briggs, Adamek, Johnson, Arreola, Peter and probably more would beat Sharkey
    There, I’ve said it, a lot of people wouldn’t say because people might think it sounds silly, but it’s fact

    It's not silly, I think Adamick, Arreola or Chisora would not succeed, the others have a better case.

    They would all smell a smaller, lesser athlete, a beta, a powderpuff puncher with minimal athleticism and no dynamic, gamechanging asset.

    If you think that Sharkey wasn't athletic then you are ****ing clueless

    Yet if you put a modern boxer who fought like Sharkey in front of them, they would laugh their heads off.

    Go watch that video where boxers at Mayweather gym are asked about a hypothetical fight between Andre Ward and Marciano.

    No they wouldn't.

    They would recognize the merit in what they were looking at.
