If I had to list some fighters I underrate and likely underappreciate Flower is definitely one of them.

Sorry I cant really help IB...but you will get some good responses soon I imagine.

Well about a month or so ago, Tiger Flowers made the semi finals of an all time middleweight tournament held on ESB, so i think that he is still highly rated by most on the ESB board.

"Blessed be the Lord my God who prepare my hands to fight and my fingers to war".

Psalms 144:1

Bad mother****er used to say this prayer before every fight he fought in the ring. Probably robbed against Walker. First black man to hold a title since Johnson and probably allowed to do so due to his devout relgiosity. Became a lay preacher after his retirement. Epic counter-rushing boxer with a less-than granite but still dependable chin. ATG MW.

Maybe he should have said a prayer for his chin rather then his hands.

Jack Delaney fighting as a middleweight owned this guy!

Delaney wound up being called the greatest light heavyweight I ever saw by both Grantland Rice as well as Benny Leonard!
