    Floyd Patterson was amazing. I was just listening to sportcenter an the heaviest he ever fought at was 188 lbs. That's small for a heavyweight, let alone a heavyweight champ. RIP Patterson. You were a good one.

    He took a terrible beating from Ingemar Johannson, but came back the next year and got the title back from Johannson.

    I was jes a young boy, but I remember my dad talking about him during that second title fight.

    They mentioned those fights on sportscenter. I had heard of him, but never realized how small he was to win the heavyweight title.
