Ha no just with reading the mayweather thread today and them fights are just before I got into boxing. I'd read about how he 'lost' against Castillo so I thought I'd have a look. The second just to see what changed.

It was a tough, competitive fight. Do you go for Mayweather's accuracy and quality, or Castillo's aggression?

I scored it a draw as well, though Floyd did have a bad shoulder.

I thought the rematch was a decent fight, Castillo gave him problems in both

Quality fight between two quality ten stone fighters. I should know why there was needle, but essentially they were two top American contenders who had to battle it out.

Bruce was robbed against Benitez the first time IMO.

Curry is that?

By the 10 points must system he absolutely beat Benitez beyond any doubt. But I can't remember by the rounds system whether is was a bad decision or not? . I think I still shaded it to Curry.

Carmen Basilio V Tony DeMarco 2 - some fight and some KO too.

Cassius Clay V Doug Jones - rewatch just to clarify a debate I was having about peak Frazier v a 64 version of Ali. Decent s**** though, better than I remembered.

Benny Paret V Gaspar Ortega - good s**** but the footage is a bit fuzzy.

Ortega is one of the most fun fighters ever. When my laptop is sorted I'll upload his incredible in-fight with Charlie Scott (forget which of their fights it is) it's incredible.

Wild as **** but tough to boot. I agree.

He has the perfect style to lay waste to Forrest as well.
