Yes, Ingo was a fighter who went to seed fast once he'd won the title. The Ingo of '58 and '59 was a force of nature. By the time he got in the ring to defend the title he was dissipated by soft-living and 'the high life'.

I don't blame him. He sure had a good looking secretary who followed him around. I think her name was Brigit or something close.

Sullivan vs Corbett--I don't see a 34 year old lasting 21 rounds against an undefeated challenger the worst of all performances.

Dempsey vs Tunney (1926)--Same here. Dempsey at least hung in there and actually carried the fight to Tunney, even though he was outclassed. Certainly not the worst.

Baer vs Braddock-Baer was always overrated in my opinion. Yes, a really bad performance.

Patterson vs Liston (1962)--my pick as the worst performance of all. He seemed frozen with fear.
