Maybe a little bit but I really think Rich has got a style pretty much his own.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

Nice comparison. Guy's stand up is very underrated. Im sure if you asked Wandy and Chuck they would tell you Guy is a very good striker. He looked good on his feet against them and they are 2 of the best 205lb guys in the world. Rich has a little more of an unorthodox style though.

Maybe in the "nice guy with the good looks" department. Mezger was a much better striker, who could atleast work in the clinch. Franklin is much more aggressive, and can't fight aggressive strikers. Guy's downfall was his cardio. I will say that both display good TD defense, but Mezger had a lot better defense.
