So clearly it is something more than its just conspiacy, when a guy's son of a top boxer is not very good. If anything Marvis should be an amazing boxer because all he had to do was beat one of the 500 guys who held titles during the 80s.

Seriously though if frazier can beat Ali, then he should have been able to prep his son to beat an inferior mover likeHolmes, it shouldn't have been round 1 ko.
This is a terrible post. Marvis beat Bonecrusher who was a later titlist. It was Joe's fault Marvis failed ecause he tried to make him fight like he did.

There's no logic here. This is a pathetic speculative punt.
