Re: 2012:Wlad's lost year
One day, we'll see some worthy challengers, like Wepner, London, Musto, Rademacher, McNeeley, Rodriguez and Ferguson. Those were the murderers' row challengers. Things will never be like they were though. In the golden days of pugilism. For then, men were men, title challengers were always made of iron and had HOF resumes and earned their title shots the hard way, swimming against the tide. What I wouldn't give for a JP Coopman or Richie Dunn, right about now. Ali wouldn't get out of bed to fight a guy like Thompson.
