AWESOME bro. Thank you very much

We had Richard for sparring for the Wach fight. He had never been a sparring partner before for anyone. poor guy was so nervous. With in days... everyone loved the guy.

He was so good for us that for the first time EVER, wlad had me bring a sparring partner to fight week for extra work... it was Richard. he became the main guy for us.

He is such a great guy. He would talk with my wife and twin sons (20) about his mistakes and doing the right thing in the hotel during fight week. Always happy and always so appreciative for where he was in Hamburg.

Even Wlad was showing him things to help him. he would say "Chef, pinch me cause this is like a dream come true". I really came to like and respect the guy. We email 1-2 times a month.

I told him.."Richard my man, if you get that shot at the title (with out a Klitschko) I will come help with nutrition and cooking for you for free"

I hope he takes me up on it some day. Really a great guy!!

yeah, thanks Chef. Towers has gone up in my estimation. Kind of gets left out the Haye/Price/Fury hype.

Bogdan Dinu.

- but he's a got a loooong way to go, and may never get the chance.



After that: Wilder, Price, and Manual Charr. (in that order)

Wladimir Klitschko, David Price, Helenius was ok, but looks like he didn't fully recover from injury yet.

Default Re: Who is your favorite heavyweight ?

Wladimir Klitschko
Alexander Povetkin (great amateur record)
Vitali

+ coming up: Jennings, Pulev, Fury is interesting but not sure how far he will get.
Solis has quality but is too fat.
Artur Szpilka seems to have a sense of humour

Almost retired: Oliver McCall
Audley Harrison - he gets knocked down but he gets up again ...

Retired: Tyson

Glazkov/Malik Scott is the pending fight I'm most interested in.

I'm looking forward to that one too. Very interested to see if Scott can finally take it to the next level. It's now or never for him.
