I'm not talking 80's version of Tyson vs todays Heavy's I'm talking about today's Tyson with motivation vs Today's heavy's.
At 54? Come on man.

Living proof that steroids shrink your balls.

He was the prototype for Lennox Lewis.

Look him up. Very famous fighter. Had some epic, epic matches.
This is completely false! Are you thinking of someone else?

Marciano's chowder came from the ground, pallys, not from some pond.

So even simple math is hard for you?

Not trying to sound like a dick, but Hagler and Marciano were the same height. Maybe Marciano was an inch taller. There was a 7" reach disparity... FAVORING Hagler.

Marciano weighed 185 for the Walcott rematch and 188 on his last outing (but had weighed less when a ranked Heavyweight). Hagler was 160 lbs. in his rematch w/ Antuofermo.

Ali was 6'3" 78" reach, 216 pounds for Quarry II and Rumble in the Jungle. He was lighter in his first fight w/ Frazier (I think that was him at his best), but swelled up to 225 pounds for Manilla (his most epic match).

Again, pick the numbers which are bigger:
1 or 5?
7 or 10?
25 or 31?

No offense, but sometimes it feels like you argue just too argue. This time you fell into your own trap.

What a hack! Duran didn't even need to retire to pull that off! He did it between fights!

I guessyou want me to believe Duran is naturally bigger than Hagler, too?

Where should we start? His wrists? His ankles? His earlobes? That part of the lip beneath the nose?

In his book his trainers said this guy would start packing on muscle so fast they limited his strength training to mostly just a heavy bag and wood chopping.
Replace "Rocky" with "Hagler" and the comment becomes even MORE true.

Hagler also certainly used the steamroom (and more). For Rocky, making 175 was possible too. But why eat a hamburger when you got steak waiting at home?

I know his career as well as anyone here.

I also know weight cutting, and bulking up better than anyone here. I spent most of my life dedicated to it (and know enough to tell people NOT to do it).

The guys Marciano fought WERE Heavyweights. Moore was bigger than Rocky when he entered the ring. Same as Charles. Just look at them and the scales.

Sure, he was bigger at 25 than they had been. He could have bulked up over them. But at that time he was spotting them weight.

Show me a physics book that provides a caveat about how mass is made and I'll leave this discussion. You can't. That is why guys bulk up. That is why fat slobs in the bologna bi.tch tit division are lethal when the little munchkins who look like they're cut from marble have matches that seem to go one forever.

I'm saying this to compliment Marciano. He beat Moore and Walcott at their best. Charles wasn't that far off from his best. Though, I dunno if I'd pick Marciano to regularly beat a prime Charles. It would probably take at least one try. He also beat them simply by wanting it more. They broke, he didn't.

I'll give you a hint.... his name rhymes with PonyDee.

Second hint... it's not Curtis Harper (at least this time, but it looked like the kinda post he'd make).

Third hint... YOU know him.


Probably you'll need some time to figure it out. But you know where to find me if you need more hints.

If we look at a pit bull it can be relatively small and, in fact, pit bulls do not have the bite strength of a lot of other breeds like shephards, but the size is in the neck, the jaws, etc.

If we further look at a fighter from the past like Fitzzimons, Who had a great punch when the emphasis in fighting was not in having one punch power, he was built like a heavyweight from the waist up, with two pencils as legs...He weighed in for his fights around 160-70 pounds.

When we look at mass we are looking at things like bone density as well as muscle mass. And fighters were taught to come in light and agile.

So weight may have some importance, but it always has to be qualified against these and other considerations. We also have to qualify the actual skills we see fighters show, on tape, when we can.
I've spent most of my life concerend with this matter.

Weight matters tremendously.

Look at how St. Pierre handled the otherwordly talent of Sean Sherk vs. how he handled the journeyman of journeymen Michael Bisping.

Look at how Sherk handled Nick Diaz vs. Frankie Edgar.

So it's also about how you use it. But it clearly matters.
