im pretty sure they have a promo vid. i think its only for 'structured' promo purposes and isnt available online yet...but ive seen the near finished product. looks the goods, very professional.

You don't recognize beating Wlad Klitschko as world title worthy?

Lennox Lewis was champion at that point in time, I believe.

I don't remember the politics. Too long ago. But Wlad was the WBO titleholder at the time and Sanders KOed him.

Technically Botha wasn't world champ. Same as James Toney they both failed there post fight drug tests.

Hey guys been a very long time since posting....but I can see everyone is well lol....Alex's next fight will be in China on the 21/12/12 not only his return but to get that confidence on his hand since his operation,he's in full flight learning new things with a new style of fighting & conditioning like their's no tomorrow.....the pass is the pass lessons were taken & learned from & we're back track.

I take my hat off to all fighters in all contact sports for stepping in the ring having a taste of it & I sure how take my hat off to my brother to be where he is today who did time @ Maximum prison & fought his biggest battle drugs & alcohol....to be where he is today 100% clean & sober & chasing a shot at the World Heavyweight title.

Next year will be a big year for team LIONHEART & will post up info when time comes but for now next months fight is priority no.1

My last post for a while,this is what you get when you have 3 kids & 1 on the way with the missus working nights .....so wishing you guys a early Merry X-Mas & a Happy New Year....stay safe during the holidays everyone & God Bless

There wasn't much in the way of politics going on. Lewis was the world champion, recognised by all and sundry. Just like I don't recognise Francesco Damiani or Michael Bentt as the world champion. There's a pretty clear line of succession or lineage at Heavyweight.

Good point. That'll teach me for going off the top of my head! Gerrie Coetzee it is then.

The purist in me only recognizes lineal champions. The less titles the better.

Yes Lennox Lewis had all the best belts at the time and was the lineal champion. But Wlad was the reigning WBO titlist when Sanders KOed him, and Sanders subsequently became the WBO champion.
