Ironically a build like Wilders was probably more common in the 20s or the 50s.
I did read. I read that you wrote Marciano was "clever" in how he set up shots.
He was wildly inaccurate and swung for the fences even when he was on the inside and missed A LOT.
Saying he was more accurate than Wilder isn't saying much.
Swings like a woman... No compact power at all
Wilder may be a bit of an outlier. I don't think he's heavy-handed. I don't think you really feel the force of his punch that much if it's blocked. Unlike say, Foreman.
But he has that Tommy Hearns-like build, puts plenty of whip and snap into his punches, and combined with that leverage and those long arms, he's carrying huge power right at the end of the punch.
What a shame he has very little of Hearns' ability.
you listed a bunch of B level contenders, he listed four ATG HOF’ers.
Sure, but Max Baer is uncoordinated caveman! No double standards at all!
I meant Louis.

Do you have short term memory loss?
There was nothing clever about how Rocky applied his shots.
You're still not there.
So you're denying that you wrote Rocky was clever in how he applied his punches? Because you did in fact write that and it was more off the mark than most of his punches.
Getting warmer but still not quite there yet. Try looking up the word "more".
Yeah I saw your original comment in regards to comparing him to wilder.
And I wrote that saying he has more finesse than wilder isn't saying much but that apparently flew over your head.
Now whose not paying attention?
Rocky and clever do not belong in the same sentence. He was about as subtle as a bull in a china shop.
