I dare you to knock this off my shoulder.
Those fights were bought and paid for, S. As for Bob's smoker win over Tony, I don't doubt it, but anyone around the game knows those bouts are a joke, just good-natured fun before dinner.

The big difference between Bob 'n Danza was. Bob wanted to be a fighter, even when he was earning top dollar as an actor, surrounding himself with the best trainers 'n sparring partners.

Tony was a for-real big banger who wanted to be the middleweight champ; only to have his life turned around when he was cast in TAXI.

Clearly, we won't come to a meeting of the minds on this, but it's great to see someone who feels so strongly about the game.
