Johanson didn't train as hard as he should/could have. I read that in a book last week so I figured I would put him on anyways.tommygunn said:i voted toney simply because if his ass trained he'd be fighting winky and taylor insted of ruiz and peters.
hey bill why's johansen on your list ? what were his training methods. :dunno:
Tony Galento may have been very fat and out of shape mind you, but he still knocked down the prime Joe Louis.White Tyson said:Butterbean doesn't count because he isn't really a boxer... he is more of a showman/exhibitionist!!! I mean... has he ever been in World Championship contention as a Heavyweight? Has it ever crossed anyone's mind that Butterbean could be World Heavyweight Champion? I don't think so... so I say that he doesn't count! If I have to pick someone... it's "Two Ton" Tony Galento. As likable (to me) as he was and as much as I love brawlers... and as tough as he was... he was slow... he was fat... he ate bolegnese a little bit too much for his traning regime... he drank kegs of beer for breakfast and smokes big fat cigars... that's BAD... mind you... Ricardo Mayorga is a 2 Pack a Day Smokes and Celebrates victories with alcohol and cigars... yet for some reason... he is one of the greatest boxers that I have ever seen over the last decade or so!
Damn straight... he had heart... will... and was as tough as nails... everything else though... was a bit of a lack!bill1234 said:LOL, whrn asked what he thought about Joe Louis, he said "Joe Louis? Never heard of the bum!". So that right there showed he was fearless.
