but rick has a chance of koing mundog as mundog has ALWAYS been chinny. rick never had chin problems. he dislocated his shoulder in the uk and had to stop. i think he got stooped fighting at heavyweight?
but anyway. rick was busy and solid. fighting the way he did in the first 4 rounds of their fight, rick wins over 12.
just my opinion. i dont thing the thornberrys would agree with me, but i know what i saw when they fought. that first 4 rounds rick had mundine in fits.
styles make fights. i think a prime rick was just the wrong style for mundog.
just my opinion..
Mundine toyed with Thornberry for 10 rounds.
Thornberry was always a pretty solid fighter, Went the distance with Both Ottke and Calzaghe, but I agree with old mate that prime Thronberry would never beat prime choc at Super MId .
