    Pretty much. No trainer in the world would entertain this folly for more than a minute.

    At least it's given us a good laugh in times like these.

    I haven't even voted in the poll.
    I can't see any good reason why either of them would "do better" than the other.
    Both could make the top 10 today at heavyweight, and Johansson could do well at cruiserweight as well.
    Neither of them would be heavyweight champion with Fury around.

    You didn´t vote?
    That´s astonishing :lol:

    #RealignmentOfSynapses => :juggle: Let me guess, since Johansson could make CW and Bruno won´t, we have another argument for Johansson? :juggle:

    I gave a longer answer to your unique stupidity here in the other thread.
    Of course I didn't vote. Provide the obvious third option, and I'll vote.

    When you look at 3 of those who have voted for Ingo there is a pattern.

    Dempsey, Marciano and now Ingo.
    What have those 3 got in common and what separates them from the likes of Liston, Foreman and now Bruno.........it's not boxing related.

    These same individuals always side with both Dempsey and Marciano and are now doing the same with Ingo. It's quite concerning.

    I will tell you exactly what those three fighters had in common that separates them from Bruno.

    They won most of their big fights, while Bruno lost most of his.

    That is a pretty damn reasonable basis to make them favorite over him.

    If you matched Bruno against Liston or Foreman, then I would say exactly the same thing!
