Default Re: Fighters who were crap in the gym, but good come fight night

Nigel Benn admitted himself that Freddie Pendleton (a lightweight and a .500 level journeyman at the time) used to beat him up so badly in the gym that Benn's headgear would be knocked loose and halfway around his skull after a round or two of sparring.

Granted Pendleton had a reputation for being a beast in the gym, the kind of guy who never performed quite as well under the bright lights, but damn, Nigel was a super middleweight.
