Damiani was good, but underachieved. He could've been in the 90s mix if he tried harder. Against Mercer, he basically quit instantly after getting his nose shattered. I've never really seen anything like that.

Naz and Augie Sanchez is such an underrated fight,two big punchers going at it,Hamed on the floor for the first time since the Kelly fight,Hamed scoring a knockdown that wasnt counted,getting a point deducted and then scoring one of the most vicious knock outs ever,all in just 4 rounds...

I forgot about this one. Clay-Bey had good skills. He should've been at cruiser, rather than a fat, undersized heavyweight.
