Bob Nystrom vs Shawn Thornton, best of 7?
Another thread inspired me to open up this hypothetical debate.....
Both roughly the same size, Thornton with about 10 to 20 lb weight advantage and a guy who fought all the "monsters" of the last 10 years. If there was a "physical advantage" held by Nystrom here?? I would say it was his reach, he seemed to have very long arms, I remember seeing him in the "Superstars" competition in the 70's and he was very lean but not a heavily muscled man.
Thornton is listed at 6'2" in most guides but I know he's not that tall.
One common intangible they both possess is "heart".
Let's hear it!!
Dick Beddoes - 'How would you stop Gretzky?'
Steve Durbano (drags on smoke and calmly says) - "I'd break his legs".
"Sut ma Dit" - Mike Tyson
Godspeed Mr. Iommi, May you slay Cancer and send it to Hell!!
