I think Nazarovs magnificent stache makes up for it. But to each his own...

True.

I'd say it was more due to Yuri's mindset of a pure thinking-type outside boxer and his general calmness rather than his inabilty to fight at a higher pace.

He also could fight a bit on in the inside ("cough" Ricardo Lopez "cough") as his fight with Cha (?) showed.

I've heard several times people describing Yuri as one of the most modest and nicest guys in boxing.

Toguchi must have done something horrible.

Probably made fun of Nazarov's hair style.

Russian documentary about Orzubek Nazarov.

[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tIrmpgnPOXY[/ame]

Very rare footage of Orzubek's amateur fights in the beginning of the documentary.

There's even a short footage of Nazarov-Tszyu amateur fights at 8:45 and at 11:00!!!

Of course he is! I'm a 'tard! Just a synopsis of any interesting points would do.

He begged doctors to do anything possible that will allow him to participate in the Olympics.
Even if it'll cost him his life.

Nazarov had his appendix removed right before the 1988 Olympics.

Tszyu went to the Olympics instead of Nazarov.

Four month later still suffering from the after-effects of surgery he fought in the USSR Amateur boxing championship.

Orzubek reached the final but lost to prime Tszyu via TKO in the 3rd round.
It was the only time he was ever dropped and stopped in the amateurs.

Senya's probably too busy searching day and night for that elusive fight report of McFarland's lone DQ loss.

In addition to what I wrote above - Kostya dropped Orzubek with a right uppercut-left hook combination en route to a dominating victory.

Great stuff Les'. Even without understanding a word being said I got the narrative and really enjoyed it.

Gold medalist in Seoul. Pretty sure this was one of the Koehei gym's main targets. You saw him in that Nazarov documentary. He talked a fair bit minus the brilliant moustache he sported as a fighter.
