Ill admit I thought he would win it and I rated him quite highly, not as high as some though.

I slowly started backing away when the hype got to bullshit levels, I just cant bring myself to think that highly of any fighter to be honest. I never thought he was this unbeatable machine that a lot tried to make out to be but I never expected Vic to do that to him.

But thats Drews...he was a pisspoor champ who won fights just by being negative.

As soon as Danny started hitting him clean he wanted no part in that fight. Ill give it to Green to showed better footwork and use of distance then I had seen from him before. He stood just outside Drew's punching range then shuffled in quickly and whacked him before he could tie up.

That fight was over after the 3 or 4th round.

The sauna actually. Can you believe that?

His handlers were utterly useless. No wonder Duva called them a bunch of amateurs.

Tommy Morrison's 'defence' of his WBO crown against Michael Bentt. Blew a shot at Lewis for being a fool and coming out swinging. (Not strictly a poor performance, but still.)

But Bruno was the classic bully who knew Tyson had his number and was a coward when he stepped into the ring that night.

Despite being a fan of his, he comes in poorly prepared quite a bit.

When I read the title of this thread, before clicking on it, Douglas versus Holyfield was the first fight I thought of.

It really was a disappointing performance especially compared with what he managed to pull off in his previous fight.

I really don't know how to rate Douglas as the disparity between his best and worst was enormous,and it gives plenty of ammo to the Tyson fanboys who think Tokyo was just a fluke.

Pavlik against Hopkins was a great show for Bernard, and a bomb for Kelly.

They should have paid Tua with Samoan rocks.

Gainer-Marquez

Gainer was terrible that night

Bump

And Audley Harrison's "showing" against David Haye is heading to the top of shittiest title fight performances of all times with a bullet.

Haye was horrific versus Wlad.

Clinton Woods completely froze versus Tarver.
