chasing that most elusive and fleet footed foe..past greatness..
Lets not forget his cowardice either The way he ran from Lennox Lewis was disgraceful. What good fighter can you think of that would stage the " WBC belt in the garbage " stunt he pulled because he was scared shitless of Lennox. Lets not forget the fat slob he turned into either If he fought like he ate he might have been the fighter you describe
His meory was pemanently sullied then I my book he was NEVER undisputed champ he renaged on the contract so it was null and void
What a huge waste of talent he was
