Re: Guys who looked tough and got big fights... just to lose
Smokin Bert Cooper.. once trained by Joe Fraizer and he even resembled him a little (and Tyson) but he was far from great. He had legit power but he got the crap beat out of him by Reggie Gross, The Truth, Nate Miller, Foreman, Bowe, Foreman, Moorer, Corrie Sanders, Larry Donald, and others. He did manage to beat Henry Tillman, Tyrone Booze, Willie de Wit, Orlin Norris, Joe Hipp, Cecil Coffee, Joe Savage, and Richie Mellito. He was exciting even in his losses.[/quote]
Came very close to stopping Holyfield....and would have been world champion.
