Re: Does Antonio 'Magic Man' Tarver deserve more respect?
Eric Harding is ridiculously underrated too, that is a good victory for Tarver. Far better fighter than the likes of Shumenov, Cloud etc knocking around today and highlights what a smart fighter Tarver was that could make slight adjustments. Watch the Harding/Jones fight.
Clinton Woods a B- fighter admittedly, looked a total clown against Tarver.
Add to what should have been 2 clear wins against Johnson in my eyes who was far better then at light heavyweight than he has been recently at 168.
Combined with his longevity.
This is why I think it was silly that people, myself included, never gave him his dues until he beat Danny Green of all people.
