Default tommy burns

be interesting to hear some of your opinions on him.

how good do you view him ?

was he sick when johnson beat him and how much better could he have done ?

did he defend the world heavyweight title twice on one night ??..or was that just newspaper false hype of two exhibitions ?

was he the first champ to bring a world heavyweight title to the u.k. (and ireland) ?


also, i read he was another that became penniless after his career was over...he was buried in an unmarked grave and his funeral was attended by four people.
