Talking It's all about the brawlers/slugger/KO KINGS

In this day and age... are we still scared of the brawlers? You know... the one's that lack finesse in the ring... or the dancing ability of Ali... the speed of Ray Leonard and all of that... but they're so strong... so powerful... they just have to hit you a few times and BAM! You're out of there? Foreman would destroy much quicker, fitter and more skilled opponents because he would overpower them with his intensity... he hardly ever defended his own face or showed off anything special... brawlers... Foreman... Liston... and so on... had a basic style... DESTROY YOUR OPPONENT!

Years later... things have changed... we all know the best boxers are extremely skilled and they don't necessarily have to rely solely on strength to win... but is every still scared of "THE BRAWLERS" in spite of not being what boxers really should be? If this thread has confused you all: I Apologise

I know one thing, a brawlers style will be more useful in a street fight. I feel sorry for the guy that might have gotten into a fight with Marciano, Foreman, Liston, Tyson, etc.

LOL they probably regreted it after wards for the next few years at the damage they would take in. Marciano put Carmine Vingo into a coma, so imagine Marciano in a street fight!

Damn... The Brawlers really were something in professional boxing... not the most skilled or athletic or best looking or the quickest or the fittest... but... the most feared! QUESTION: "Was Max Baer a brawler or something else???"

He was a brawler that completely went all out. He knocked primo carnera down 11 times in 11 rounds! He killed a 2 people in the ring, one was a random jab that killed the guy the other guy was on the ropes and was pumled to death.

I always liked Max Baer and despite the way he was portrayed by Craig Bierko in Cinderalla Man... I still like Max Baer!

Same here, why did Craig Bierko make him look like a terrible man? That is just wrong.

The movie took "artistic License" and did not portray exactly what happened at the time,Baer was a good guy in real life.

Brawlers and Boxers will always be a part of boxing,I don't think we have more or less of them today as we did then. Styles make fights, and sometimes its the roll of the dice if you get a good boxer/brawler match up.A brawler vs brawler match up in the heavies usually means a holding fest.
