Re: which era had the highest ratio of crooked top level fights?
D 1980s had Don King manipul8ing d HWs, d 1960s-1970s had d holy trinity of Mirena , King , Ali . d 1990s had fights like Liles vs Littles #2 (jast watched it 2day), Bernard Hopkins fights, Jones vs Griffin #2, Jones vs Griffin #1 (which ultim8ly ended uncrookedly thanks 2 Larry Hazard), and Bert Cooper's "losses" 2 Moorer&Holyfield which both came due 2 a repeat of Clay vs Henry Cooper #1.
But, I believe that d most crooked era was d "old times" b4 WW1 and maybe a bit past it which will simply remain mainly unknown. Well, maybe it was Lamotta's, Satterfield's and Markegiano's era.
