It seems that in Teddy Atlas, this community may have found its own verstion of the "Chuck Norris joke."

As for helping Briggs in that fight, I think Briggs would handle himself pretty well in a street fight. A boxing ring is another story.

Teddy Atlas is the most unintentionally funny person in boxing............thats a fact....How can anyone sit through and read a whole Teddy Atlas book. I can only listen to 3 comments that he makes on FNF every week. The rest my brain filters out as giberish, Charlie Brown's parents talk "whom..whom..whom..whom"

He's different in print. Talking about Moorer-Foreman was the best part, if I remember correctly.

"The MENTAL aspect, the EMOTIONAL make-up........"

"he WANTED to get ko'd, he gave up..."

Atlas is a legend. I love his stories. I'm trying to get hold of his book from amazon after seeing it reviewed and laughing my ass off. I heard he only wrote the book so he could use it as a weapon.

Look up all of the IBHOF trainers, and you will find none who quote their street fighting exploits like Teddy Atlas.

A commentator who was a so-so professional trainer.

Also a guy who always speaks on the need for a national commission and how mismatches are terrible, but has no problem putting his own fighters in with mismatched opponents.

He was actually only a below average amateur novice. He had about 3 amateur fights, good enough for him to claim he was golden gloves. He means adarondaik (sp) gloves, not nyc ones. On efight, he beat overmatched kid. The area of upstate new york is sparsley populated, and some farm kids would enter, Cus D'amato would put his better trained kids in for easy win and experiance. Kevin Rooney won NYC golden gloves, atlas would not enter, claimed back hurt too much. Rooney also went pro, he was just club fighter type, but at least gave it a shot.

Atlas never was a pro, erratic.

I just realized you said "below average trainer" not fighter. My mistake, sorry. He sucked as trainer. Never had one success, and ruined some good prospects. (robbie Williams, Johny Venderoosa, Chris Reid) I think Michael Grant's peopl emade major mistake when they panicked and switched to Atlas after Grant lost his first time to Lewis.
