Bert was a wonderful character in the sport, an insightful story teller, and a real throwback kind of reporter, but his lists were ****ing cringe-worthy. I have no idea why he, or so many others, rate Johnson and Dempsey so high in the P4P lists. There are a whole host of fighters who not only have far better lists of victories and accomplishments, but just straight look superior on film. It has to be historical and societal significance clouding better judgment. If that's not it though, I'm clueless...
Yeah, rating Johnson and Dempsey over Canzoneri and Ross is as criminal as rating D12 and Zo over The Dream.
