Excuses, excuses. Why is it that SO many excuses have to made to justify his "greatness??" He wasn't prepared. He wasn't at his best! The ref called it off to quick. He "avenged" the losses (big deal, the greats don't get starched in the first place by second raters TWICE). And his victory over mental cripple McCall isn't all that impressive anyway. C'mon. This guy is the most overrated top line champ ever. The greats don't get laid out TWICE by B-level fighters. Period.
