I watched this violent knockout, about 4 times.

He went mad not because he had scored a knockdown but because in the build up the opponent had suggested that he was a gay prostitute (or something to that effect)

RCR's interesting fact of the day

After the Bruno/Haye debate earlier I watched the Bruno vs McCall fight.

I scored it to Frank 117-111 (**** knows what fight the judge who had him win by just 2 was watching)

Oliver McCall, as hindsight tells us, had mental isues and I think it is safe to say that he was suffering from them in this fight. He gave away the first 3 rounds as Bruno dominated behind his very under-rated jab and even when he, McCall, was more active it seemed a bit half-hearted and without any conviction. Only in the last 3 rounds did McCall grasp the serious situation he found himself in and went about to change that and if it had been a 15 round fight would, in my opinion, have won by KO as Frank was ****ed.

First time I've watched the fight since the actual night and I was shocked at how poor it was. Still great seeing Nigel Benn supporting Bruno and **** being the person who was sat behind him

Watched Bruno vs Tyson II afterwards and haven't got much to say about it apart from even if you didn't know either man ythat you could have easliy guessed that Bruno didn't fancy it from the walk-in. Glad he got a great payday and walked away afterwards though.

In theory a good idea, a practise a bad idea. You rarely have 10 star fights, and you rarely have fights which are so shitty they only deserve a 1. You need to break it down a bit and give people more of a choice.

I watched Lennox Lewis v Andrew Golota, but I watched the American commentary, hadn't seen this version for years, crazy how biased the commentators are leading up to the first bell!

What a performance from Lennox, I remember staying up for it at the time and being generally worried for Lewis, I was so excited when he won, and loved the message he sent out to the doubters.

I found the version in question on Youtube for those interested..........

Remember in that fight very little that was thrown missed, whatever they threw hit the button. It was warfare from the get-go and it carried on until Castillo had no more.

Comparisons to be made -
Gatti - Ward I, II, III
Vasquez - Marquez I, II, III
Barrera - Morales I, II, III
JMM - Pac I, II, III
Somsak - Monshipour (you're a noob so you probably only know about Tyson and Ali, so you might not have heard of that fight).
Anything from the Big Four.
Chavez - Taylor I

Now **** off Noob cunt.

You're the noob, get ****ed. Gatti and Ward are club fighters. You don't even know who Netrnoi Sor Vorasingh, Venice Bus Station and Saensak Muangsurin are so don't come in trying to act cool with Somsak.

Chacon-Limon IV
Boza-Limon
Limon-Chacon II
Espada Vs Gonzalez
Brooks-Curry
Saad Vs Kates/Johnson I&II/Conteh I/Lopez II
Chang Vs Tokashiki

Shit all over those fights.

Gatti vs Ward is the most over-rated fight/trilogy in history.

There was about 8 truely exciting rounds over the 3 fights and Gatti schooled him for most of the 30 rounds.
