Re: How were old timers so good?
So lots of people are saying old timers grew up tougher, fair enough, liston, ali, tyson whatever most these guys come from tough backgrounds. Perhaps that explains why many of the best boxers are now coming out of the soviet bloc and latina america, because there are lots of poverty in places like kazakstan and ukraine and cuba, and maybe that is why we don't see German boxers anymore. But then how do we explain the the UK is still churning out top boxers like calzagie, lewis, did you see the olympics? Uk men not too bad.
