Default Re: Discuss fighters Jones Jr ducked in his prime

Though it's a good point he never had an ODLH or a Mike Tyson to make a name off

You said Ward-Dawson was a masterpiece - you consider that version of Dawson who killed himself to make 168 a great fighter? Also Iran Barkley was NOT a great fighter!

An example of a masterclass between great fighters would be Thomas Hearns-Wilfred Benitez
But Wach is?
I said Wards performance was a technical masterpiece. It was a fighter appliying all of his trade to the best of his ability. A showcase of pure boxing skill. Wlad jabbed Wach for 12 rounds and when he felt safe he threw a right hand. Do into the classic and declare that fight a boxing masterclass. You'd be laughed off the forum.
