Name fighters who were thrown into a big fight too soon. 1. Pete Rademacher- How do you beat this one? Highly decorated amateur fighter Rademacher thrown in with Floyd Patterson in his very 1st fight for the HW championship! He did manage to put Patterson on the canvas before succumbing himself. 2. Marvis Frazier-Came into fight with Larry Holmes at 11-0. He wasn't ready though. He was mercifully beaten by Larry in the opening stanza, and it was actually Holmes that waived the referee in to stop the onslaught.
