Default Re: Emile Griffith

That is badass but I have two thoughts:

1.) Archer was right. He did deserve a title shot. He was the real deal, which underscores Griffith's courage for agreeing to face him.

2.) Something like 17 out of 20 ring side journalists had Tiger winning the fight. It was almost universally considered a robbery, not a close controversial decision but an outright robbery. Still, a guy as small as Griffith hanging tough with a demon like Tiger is something.
