Not in bad shape.

Not mind blowing either IMO. Not the fighters' fault, the human race is as strong as it's ever been. Put the top guys from this era in any so-called 'golden age' and they'd be even better IMO.

It was said earlier that David Haye was simply too small and wlad was just too big. I'm saying that thats not a good enough excuse to fight like he did. Willard is no where close to Wlads league but did dempsey fight scarred the whole time? no he ran at that mountain of a man like a bat out of hell.

If there is a 200lbs limit. I'm going with Dempsey. However in a heavyweight fight with out weight limits. I'm on the fence.

If I'm not mistaken he did call for a rematch with Wlad. Where was Dempsey's 'competitive spirit' against Wills again? Oh he signed to fight C Class Brennan, LHW Gibbons, Dying Miske and Firpo instead

Are you comparing Wlad to a 37yo Willard? Audley is the same size as Willard pretty much, a better comparison

What genuine elites has Dempsey met? Could the same claims you make about Haye be made about Liston?

Nishioka v Donaire is so mouth watering. It's one of them fights I had on my dream list and never expected to see.

Got a funny feeling Nishioka will be really negative. No justification really, just a hunch.

Proud champion. Spartan. I think he might start very conservatively but then bite the bullett where others have baulked. I genuinely believe this is the genuine foty candidate. But there are a lot of factors you can't predict so you may be right.

Ideally Nishioka manages to recreate Ebihara vs Kingpetch and club Donaire brutaly into the canvas.
