Well it appears that Ronnie Coleman and William Bonac are having a small disagreement about current bodybuilders vs bodybuilders in the 90s. Ronnie Coleman believes bodybuilders were better! William Bonac not so much!
“CONDITIONING IS NOT THE SAME. LOOK AT THOSE GUYS. I MEAN, NOBODY LOOKS LIKE THEY’VE BEEN ON A DIET, LIKE A REAL DIET DIET. NOBODY LOOKS IN SHAPE. THEY LOOK OKAY, YOU KNOW. YOU PUT THEM NEXT TO GUYS LIKE ME, FLEX, KEVIN, AND SHAWN, GUYS LIKE THAT, YOU’RE LIKE ‘WOAH THAT’S A BIG DIFFERENCE. THEY WOULDN’T BEAT ANY OF THE GUYS I FACED.”
Here is William Bonac disagreeing with Ronnie Coleman:
“I still don’t think that he should say that, you know?” Bonac said. “Especially coming from that kind of man, with a status like Ronnie. He’s the GOAT, and he did a great job. Of course, (he has) free speech, but sometimes you got to be careful with the words that you bring out.”
“Like I said, it’s a different era,” William Bonac continued. “Like Brandon (Curry), if Brandon was in his era, he would have done maybe the same thing that they did. Brandon could have come even better, Brandon could have won the Olympia nine times, instead of eight times. So it’s a different era. If Ronnie came in our era, he would step up to our game. If the guys, like he says, don’t train hard enough, he wouldn’t train hard enough. Why would he, because nobody’s training hard enough.”
“It’s his opinion, and I don’t agree with it,” Bonac went on. “Not just because I’m in this era. I love back in the old school. I love it. If you want to go that way, look at all those guys. People say ‘look at the standard guts,’ and blah blah blah, but really? Go back in time. I see a lot of those guys with a big belly.”
“People will always say their era was the best,” Bonac concluded. “They will always say that. Of course, they want to leave as legends, so they will always say that. A true champion wouldn’t put a feather up in his a–. He would let other people put a feather up in his a–. So he would let other people talk about him, how great he is. He won’t say how great he is.”
Who do you agree with? Ronnie Coleman os William Bonac?
