Antuofermo got battered by Hope that's why. I'm amazed he beat Corro too, who had an injured hand and obviously thought he'd beat, the man who was to become the worst middleweight champ ever, with ease and probably trained by smoking all of Monzon's tabs.

Is that from another report you read?

How can someone be amazed over an outcome from a fight that this person never saw but only read about?

Dinner, you been pretty quiet the last few minutes. Are you going to put up another photo of a family member? Please don't.

I always ask Red what the great Sibbo's (Or Roldan for that matter) finest 2 or 3 wins are and he goes all coy

I've seen the fight. I'll pm you the site that has it if you want. I thought Corro did enough myself, but it indeed could have gone either way. A total off night against a vastly inferior opponent for the Argie.

I went to bed. You should try it occasionally, instead of throwing darts at your Ray Leonard posters all night. Your accuracy is quite astonishing I've heard- you manage to hit his bad eye with every other throw.

i was a sibbo fan but i just can't see him winning this one.sibbo was a big underachiever should have done much better.didn't always train well and didn't believe in sparring a lot for fights.however when he was fired up and well prepared he was a right handful with a devastating left hook,ask minter who he sparked in minters last fight,that was no mean achievment.the much touted john collins was demolished in a couple of rounds on his home patch in chicago when they just saw sibbo as a stepping stone after his loss to hagler.he also blasted out the tough frankie lucas on his way up.i just think monzon's all round basic discipline and toughness would be too much for sibbo.monzon by ko inside 10 rounds.

Sibson would be seriously out of his depth in this one,Isaw many of his fights at ringside ,he had serious power in his left hook and good hand speed but Hagler schooled him and Monzon would do the same to win by late stoppage ,around the 10th.

It's hard to see how Sibson could be favored over Monzon. The two did not fight in far-apart eras so one would think Monzon's vastly greater consistency would make him an obvious choice to dispatch Sibson. What would Sibson offer that Monzon could not counter?
