If you count all his Championship bouts, he fought in over 300 Championship rounds, only Griffith fought in more in modern times, and he won his last title, the WBA World Cruiserweight Title, at the age of 42, as he became the 2nd oldest boxer (Foreman) ever to win a World Title.
Your 100% correct when you say he is a nice guy.
Yeah, he had quite a few championship rounds ^^
Thatīs why he is liked over here. Even casual sport fans know him over here. He is better known than Roy Jones Jr.
