I've been watching old videos of Chuvalo at his best in the mid '60s (DeJohn, Jones, Patterson, etc) and really believe the guy's defence was underrated. He didn't get hit flush anywhere near as often as many of the bonehead Toronto sportswriters would have you believe. He slipped some, blocked a lot and took plenty on his shoulders. He had a good jab too, better than a lot of modern heavies. A few of his losses in those days can be blamed on pure bad luck and weird circumstances (read his autobio). Claims he was a dirty fighter were based on the fact he was a body-puncher who threw in volume, some of which are going to stray with the other guy moving too. It was also the cause of some of his points losses, as even then judges were more impressed by head shots than belts to the guts.

Haven't spent much time looking at Chuvalo. Remember you running him against a post-prime Liston and getting the stoppage win.

How you done your own rating for him Cap?

This is what I have for George. I don't recall where this came from or if I've altered it.

This says default. I'm taking this from the latest version of the game as I'm less likely to have tinkered with it.....but you never know.

That fight on ropes actually should be set to the highest possible because that was where Chuvalo really liked to work.

Thanks for that Cap. That looks to be your version of Chuvalo. I've copied ratings and attached.
