Don ****ell, was labeled,
* A willing trial-horse
* A plucky Englishman
* A plump medoicre Light-Heavyweight
* Light-hitting plodder
* A sitting-duck
* Stout-hearted punching bag
* Lucky to reach the 5th Round
* Better chance of walking on water across the San Francisco Bay
I will grant you that he was not the most aestheticaly pleasing challenger, but when you cut through it all he was still a capable fighter.
