  • Prime George Foreman vs Prime Jack Dempsey, 15 rounds, who wins?

    Best answer: As legends and myths go, too often (more times than we want to accept and believe) the legends and myths grow with the passage of time in people's and newer generations' minds; such is the case with Jack Dempsey. He was one tough brawling monster that didn't know how or when to back down. But, let's... show more
    Best answer: As legends and myths go, too often (more times than we want to accept and believe) the legends and myths grow with the passage of time in people's and newer generations' minds; such is the case with Jack Dempsey. He was one tough brawling monster that didn't know how or when to back down. But, let's be real, training during Jack Dempsey's time was no where as sophisticated and scientific as later boxers'.

    Let's look at it from a different perspective: Dempsey trained and fought under different rules, where the boxer who scored a knockdown could hover over the fallen fighter, as opposed to the modern era where he is directed to a neutral corner. Science/medicine were not a part of the boxers' regimen during Dempsey's time.

    Dempsey would probably have been a good boxer in the modern Golden Age of Boxing, but I seriously doubt he would have become a champion with the likes of Ali, Frazier, and the other big bruisers fighting then, like Foreman who was one of hose feared brawlers and bruisers... he sent shivers down his opponents' spines before they even felt his incredible power. He was (still is) an exceptional man, in and out of the ring. I doubt Dempsey could have withstood Foreman's onslaught; I think Dempsey was tailor-made for the likes of Foreman to seriously hurt and KO.

    Best answer: Kid Gavilan is one of those old-school fighters that was never KOd in his very long career. He gought well beyond his prime, like too many boxers have done throughout history. He was a great fighter but... let's be real, Hearns represented a n extremely difficult target to get at with his long, head-snapping jabs and vicious snake-like rights. Hearns was simply too difficult to hit, even Sugar Ray Leonard found out, losing almost all the rounds... until Hearns (tired? Fatigued?) made a mistake and Leonard was able to capitalize and KO him... which did look more like a fluke than talent.

    Remember, Kid Gavilan fought in a different era, with some training techniques that are now considered useless by modern standards. Hearns fought in the modern era with modern techniques for training and staying in shape and where there were more than just a handful of great boxers,

    It's difficult for me to imagine or visualize in my mind's eye how Kid Gavilan would last 10, 12 or 15 rounds with Hearns without getting outscored... I think Hearns would get a UD over the great, late Kid Gavilan.

  • Would boxing be better if the boxers play to a knockout or a three knockdown rule?

    Best answer: It would make it worse. Boxing’s already unable to attract the best athletes. especially in the higher weight divisions. The revision you propose—which seems designed to guarantee no one retires without scrambled brains—would make it almost impossible to attract anybody with other options. But the fights would be... show more

    But the fights would be more fun to watch.

  • Sugar Ray Leonard vs Joe Walcott, 15 rounds, who wins?

    Best answer: A Welterweight version of Walcott vs a Welterweight version of Sugar Ray Leonard?

    Best answer: A Welterweight version of Walcott vs a Welterweight version of Sugar Ray Leonard?

    Walcott was a powerful puncher that relied more on closing the distance and exploiting missed punches (ESPECIALLY effective against slower Light Heavyweights and Heavyweights), but less so versus fighters in the smaller weight classes (and closer to his 5'1" size).

    Walcott was as tough as they come (or ever was made) in the boxing ring, but Leonard's skill set at Welterweight allowed him to use pure boxing or boxing-punching at his leisure.

    Because of this, his phenomenal athleticism at 147 Lbs, his superior size & reach, and his intelligent adaptability, Sugar Ray Leonard beats & outboxes the Barbados Demon over 15 rounds for a decision.

  • Could James Toney have beaten Carlos Monzon?

    Best answer: It would be a classic for the ages. In the 1st half of Monzon's career...I'm leaning towards Toney. In the 2nd half of Monzon's career, I have to say.....Monzon would probably win a close decision. It has to do with styles more than skills.

    Best answer: It would be a classic for the ages. In the 1st half of Monzon's career...I'm leaning towards Toney. In the 2nd half of Monzon's career, I have to say.....Monzon would probably win a close decision.

    It has to do with styles more than skills. Toney was a throw-back fighter with great inside, classical technique...but Monzon, like Hagler, was such an awkward, strange fighter to fight that it would have thrown Toney's timing off. Remember, Toney was a boxer-puncher that loved to set up counters from mid-range and the inside...but Monzon's rhythm and timing were uniquely off-beat. His jab and anchor right were also problematic...he had an all-time-great chin...and his ring generalship was inevitable. The style that gave Monzon problems, above all, was the pressure fighter style (look at the Bennie Briscoe and Emile Griffith fights). You also had to have very good power to cause Monzon problems. Toney had dangerous power at 160Lbs, but he had close fights at 160Lbs versus fighters that Monzon would have broken down and stopped.
