    How are we even purporting to measure the alleged increase in bar patrons' barfighting skills since Sullivan's day?

    AFAIK, barfighting is not a regulated sport. There is no AAU manual or DVD coaching series of proper barfighting (or streetfighting) technique. Most famous boxers' "off hours" fights are not even on film.

    Larry Holmes had a streetfight where he dropkicked a guy from a car. Another boxer, even. How often was Larry drilling the fight winning dropkick in the gym, do you reckon?

    I am aware of how obese kids are nowadays, but in most Eastern European countries, they are still healthier than in West European countries.

    That's true and that's why we have such a beautiful women :)

    That said, they're not as healthy as people from the end of 19th centruy.

    In sullivans time the average man hit harder, probably in many cases way harder due all the manuel labor done since childhood of so large a percentage of the male population world wide

    Charles "Sonny"Liston, hell that stare usually would freeze one blood. Also has the street rep.and Mob connections
    Big George Foreman, a man that can carry cattle over his shoulders , probably the strongest heavy in history as far as physical strength is concerned. Of course Foreman part 1. When he was lean and mean.
    Joe Frazier, if things go south, I'll need someone who won't fold his tent and run. And that left hook is the perfect punch to right handed street brawlers, they don't expect it. Lol
