Like a lot of heavyweights, Godfrey could be a bit of a head-case. He didn't always put on his best effort and sometimes didn't train. He liked to fool around too much in camp. He was a bit like Buster Douglas. Like a lot of fighters in those days, if things weren't going his way, he'd find an easier way to lose.
