In his prime BGL was the greatest and most feared heavyweight of all time. let's not even talk about the past. Guys like O'reilly and Nilan, etc...we're not in the same universe size / strength wise. Laraque was a specimen drafted in the 2nd round strictly because of his size and strength. I've talked to him on numerous occasions. He weighed in at 260 in his first year and if anyone remembers destroyed Rob Ray in his very first fight - broke his orbital bone, concussed him etc...nobody tried him again that year. nobody. imagine that. a rookie. There have been guys who were great, who did well vs him ---grimson, twist, etc...but no one could control another heavyweight like BGL could. No one.
