Some of his predictions are a little stupid to say the least.Liston knocks out Foreman in 4?Foreman isn't Floyd Pattesrson.Foreman would knock out Liston rather easily.Better Power and a better chin equals Liston on his back being counted out.But the worse is Marciano beating Ali.Marciano over Ali?Even his his dreams he couldn't beat Ali.Then he has Louis knocking out Foreman.Liston had a horrible chin.If fighters like Conn could almost knock him out and Walcott could drop him with one punch several times then i dont see how anybody could be so stupid to say could even avoid being knocked out by Foreman never mind beating him.Cox seems like a moron but at least he has somethings right.Like Tyson knocking out Marciano in one round so the guy isn't that bad. :)

First of all, Marciano beating Ali is as hysterical as Lennox Lewis beating the Mannasah Mauler aka Jack Dempsey.

Ali is da man!!! He is da butterfly, da Louisville Lip, da youthful dancer, da master of his domain, da quintessential icon of not one but TWO decades, The 60s and da 70s. He is thee greatest!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Dempsey - Wills matchup was kind of a whack result.....one of the reasons I prefer running the matchups 100 times and taking the "typical" result. That way I can minimize any fluky outcomes and focus in on the "likely" outcomes.

Yeah Barn'...... The moment I saw this ancient Thread and read that result, I immediately posted this, knowing your immediate response would be exactly that. I didn't mean to push your buttons but it is relevant to our HW lists................. Did you agree with my KO ratings on that thread ???

By the way,,,, I think it was KO, not TKO,......... and Wills never landed a punch.

Oh well, that's great, but we might be better if you ran say 25 fights starting with that 1st rd lineup then randomly starting with different matchups X 2,...... 75 times, and we'll have a great statistically based results,...... Or you could run programs for the BUrnerMcGoorty Corporations up to 200 lb shortlist for our discussions on the Heavyweight thread.............. ...... Then you can start on the MW's........... we only count filmed fighters (Barnburners Groundrules)..................... Having Fun POET ?????

I forget who did finally beat Wills, maybe it was Uscudan, or another fighter, but they beat wills handily, so it may not be far fetched that Dempsey could have also.
& to watch an old overweight Marciano in the computer fight against Ali, showed even at that point, he still had quickness & power & could have chased Ali down & got in on him to land the big one, so yes Marciano has the punchers chance to KO Ali, & yes he knocks bite his ear Tyson out in a slugfest for the ages.
