Could go either way. My bet would usually go with the pro fighter though. They know what angle to throw at and they wouldnt be intimidated.
But since you said a "street fight", I guess that means the 170lb'er could take him down and pound the snot out of him...hmmmm
A pro boxer will hit harder than you could imagine, even at that weight! Usually at that weight, they are pretty fast too, and know HOW to hit.
Most idiots on the street would like to think they can box, and when they get the chance, they throw stupid swings at people, thinking they will KO them in one blow...
I have a mate that fits that description, and he would have no hope whatsoever against a lightish boxer, and he's 15 stone! WAY too slow and thinks his punch is heavy, which is the norm among guys that want to fight in the street!
Great post, I weigh 175 pounds on most days, and for fun I spar with men that weigh 240 to 250 pounds that I work with just because they think that since their bigger than me, it'll be easy. I havent encountered one 200 plus man than hits harder than any of the middleweights I use to fight with in the ameteurs.
i said the fight was closer than the scores said, but it didnt go to the scores, i had floyd ahead by 3 points, and i thought cortez was a little testy early, but after about the 4th, he was letting hatton fight inside. But floyd ended it the way champs should.
