Who do you think would win this fight and why??Yesterday I said Bob Foster was the #3 best light heavy and Conn was #4..After that I've been thinking about this match up a lot..This fight match up would be at light heavyweight of course..
Conn put up a hell of a fight against Joe Louis the first time..Yet,Louis was flat and lacked pop..Louis trained hard the day before the fight instead of resting like he normally did..He wanted to weigh in below 200 lbs so the fight looked more legit since Conn weighed 174..Louis was 202 but got down to 198..He also didn't eat breakfast the day of the fight and didn't drink much water..Anyway,Conn boxed his ass off in that fight and got too confident and got KO'd late when he had the fight won..Conn also KO'd Pastor 2 rounds later than Joe Louis did..Conn also was able to outbox Tony Zale and got a UD decision against him..That is a huge win..Conn was a master boxer and was extremely smart in the ring..He was a thinker in the ropes..
Foster has a huge punch..He was able to KO Dick Tiger in 4 rounds..Tiger had been KO'd in his 8th pro fight in the 7th round before but this guy had an insane chin and could take a lot of punishment..Foster has been KO'd 6 times but most of those KO'd were by heavyweights and not light heavyweights..He was trained by Eddie Futch..Of his 56 wins he KO'd 46 of them..I really think that his fight with Mike Quarry showed how he can deal with a decent counterpuncher and boxer..Mike Quarry was not like his brother Jerry Quarry..Foster was dangerous with both hands but his right hand was monsterous..
What do you all think??How would you break it down??
