What u gotta do is, u gotta predict the matches and help take my tournament to the last 16 stage. Predictions should be like :

George Foreman vs Primo Carnera - Foreman by KO Rd.4

Simple? Your opinions count in this fantasy All Star HW tournament. Mark You, they count highly, but in the end its my tournament and I'm gonna take it forward as I please. What ur prediction does is, it changes my mind about the outcome of a fight. if u say, tyson wins this and i was thinkin tyson loses this, I would give it a second thought.

Simple?

Also, please do feel free to comment on my predictions and i may change them. Guys, I implore u to participate deeply on this one, as it could showcase the opinions of the whole BoxingScene forum about the Greatest HW ever.

You Think Earnie Shavers will get KO'd by Liston in Rd.1? Really? What are u smoking?

All of the other choices, excellent ones. But Foreman cant KO Spinks that fast. Are u judging him by the Tyson fight?

Yes and I'm not smoking anything at the moment.

I'm assuming you meant Spinks HW prime, if you can even call it that. Then yes, I stand by my decision.

no. Its a pure knockout tournament. It dont matter how he wins, just that he wins. but that doesn't mean u are just gonna predict the winner's name. U gotta do the whole thing (the same as Barnburner did). this shows ur opinion as to how the match would go.

Liston is undoubtedly a huge hitter, but so is Shavers. In fact, I'll say Shavers is a more powerful Puncher than Liston. I also think Shavers has nothing called defense in his fighting style. He also has a below-average chin and an average heart. But He is not going to lose to Liston in just One Round. My prediction for this match is going to be revealed after few more posts of other members in the history section.

In the meantime I advise u to stop smokin weeds, or having roofies, and whatnot. Shavers aint goin down so quick.

Yes, it was a rather unfortunate piece of Scheduling. I had arranged for a completely Random Lucky Draw for these matches and Ali vs Cleveland Williams came out last. But, u cant judge Big Cat by the night he fought Ali. He was shot by then (literally and figuratively)

I aint no shavers fan. Come on, be reasonable. He is one of the hardest punchers ever, and Liston aint exactly Ali, so he wont be able to stay out of his reach. I aint sayin that Liston will lose, but he will lose after a 6-8th Rd.KO. There just aint no chance that he will be KO'd in the very first round.

Anyways, Shavers:crucified

Of Course. That was a fluke. First Round KO's are a rare thing. Mike Tyson KO'd Spinks in the first round itself. But that doesn't mean out of 5 matches the same result will occur again and again. Its Boxing:boxing: dude. Its so unpredictable:slap:

The chances are, it might end up with the exact same result again. Is there a possibility that Sonny Liston cleans Shavers' clock in one-round? Absolutely yes, and if an individual holds that opinion, it doesn't make them a lunatic or a pothead either. Liston was a known one-round KO artist to boot. He did annihilate Floyd Patterson in consecutive first round KO's, not to mention in the bout previous to his title shot against Patterson, Liston obliterated Albert Westphal in one round also. I wouldn't put it past Liston to flatten Shavers' within a minute, he was such a phenomenal puncher.

Ok, listen. I got nothin against Liston, nothin against Shavers. As I mentioned in the preface of this thread that all of u guys are perfectly allowed to express your feelings about the match. I just said Shavers gettin KO'd is improbable, not impossible. Lets forget about this short skirmish:Flush: and get workin on our match results, shall we?

Primo Carnera may be a former champ, but he has no credibility in my eyes after that match with Max Baer

Tommy Morrison? Kirk Johnson is better anyday.

Carnera wasn't a great fighter, but the Baer fight is the one that should earn him the most respect in my opinion. He got his ass kicked but he never quit or stopped trying. If nothing else the guy had heart.

I believe you had a go at me for saying the exact thing.

I don't think Louis KO'S Wlad THAT early but, that's just me.

Dempsey takes longer than 6 to KO Fitz if he even manages to. Your underrating Fitz toughness hugely.

Walcott does wayyy more than SD Bonavena.

Berbick does not beat Patterson.

Devroy Jones
05-24-2011, 12:45 PM
Berbick beating Patterson is an upset, thats for sure. Do you mean to say Berbick has no chance of ever beating Prime Patterson? hmmmm..... explain the logic and I'll change it.

Louis had one of the greatest punching powers in HW history. And WK dont have that hard a chin, does he? Would Rd.3 KO work?

Bonavena was a lashing monster. Jersey Joe could KO Bonavena with that combination of his. But, I think that KO would probably occur late in the match, so I guess I should change it to Walcott UD or Walcott Rd.15 TKO?

Yes, Bob was tough, but think, could he stand against the furious combinations of Dempsey? just think about the Willard match. Dempsey pummelled a giant and reduced him to a pair of matchsticks (dont bother with the loaded gloves theory). Will you stll suggest that I should change my result? (i'm very unwilling on this one)

As for the Foreman debate, Spinks will be totally outweighed, outsized, er...outintimidated by Big George. And if we take the Frazier-Foreman then we shouldn't be even debating this at all. As for me having a go, Shavers and Liston squared off well in terms of Physique, and Shavers could punch too. Spinks should have stayed at LHW.

You can't go with upests, you go with the most probably result. Anyone has a chance of beting anybody. Especially with an average at best chin liek Pattersons got. Berbicks chin wasn;t great either though and Patterson was 100x more skilled. There's a reason Berbick is regarded as one of the worst Champions in history.

I just don't think Louis would be aggresive enough first round to KO Wlad that quick. He would take 3 or 4 rounds to work him out and then it's light out from there.

Jersey Joe is just hugely more skilled than Bonavena, end of story.

Bob is 100x the fighter Williard was. Bob also does not have a style of any similarity to Williard. Fitzsimmons would clash with Dempsey and both would just swing at each other until the KO which would never come and Dempsey would win by UD.

Just my opinions.
