Bowe also only lost one pro fight at heavyweight and was involved in one of the best trilogys in heavyweight history... Remember that... That is why many applaud his skills... It made him a great heavyweight... we are not here to analyse how he was damaged longterm because every fighter knows those risks.. he did what he did and should be appreciated as a tremendous athlete... So BRAVO to a brilliant Heavyweight champion with a sole loss on his resume...
