Challenge? That wasn't a challenge, you clown. It was an invitation to stand by your words instead of hiding behind your little moniker.

And now you're even worse -hiding behind ESB's skirts.

You're a disturbed individual. That much is clear. You're also a bit skittish for a Scot. But you have a name. And if you choose to call people fake pricks and all that, then you should stand by your words. Am I wrong?

Oh go and **** yourself. I said what I had to say in the message. Go read it then fist pump in front of a mirror at your online 'victory'.

No one's fist is pumping here. You got a private invitation that became an open invitation for you to stand up. You wrote in that last PM that you have a picture up here and your name. Send them my way, then say whatever you want, whenever you want -because at least you'll be enough of an adult to do it in the light.

Do you record yourself saying your own name in epic voices and play it back to yourself in surround sound?

If this petty shit is so important to you, use the search function. As I said in the message, if you get this worked up at rather tame trolling on an online forum, best of luck reading any negative reviews of any published work you do.

Still looking for an audience I see.

No problem here with negative reviews. And at least they have a name attached. So, what's yours again?

And yet you persevere with your SECRET handicap against some of the greatest fighters in history, and triumph...
Your name is Harry Greb, probably the greatest P4P fighter, and certainly the most courageous and FEARLESS fighter in history...A profile in courage !
For this reason, I also thought of Frazier and Langford along with Greb. Any ATG with compromised eyesight deserves mention with respect to mental toughness.

I think micheal watson is very mentally tough for what he has overcome and what he has done since he was injured. I mean he has totally forgiven chris eubank and is at peace with himself. Hes even walked a frigging marathon for christ sake, he has come an amazingly long way thats real fighting spirit.
