Great, we have a crash and the first thing people do is flood the place with heavyweight rubbish

Have a bit of originality!

Go and write something in my MW/Foster thread then. And don't just pick Greb.


Ali cuts Rocky at some point and he gets pulled. I don't see it lasting longer than 8 under modern rules.

I'd love to be around when a woman finally breaks you of that attitude. That will be really funny.

The rest of, who do what they're told.

Make your choice, do it carefully.

EDIT: Additionally, you get some Lonely Gay Bastards, but it's subcategory rather than a category.

Ali. Rocky is highly overrated and never fought anyone comparible to Ali who was close to their prime.

Ali stops in on cuts late or wins a big UD.

I think peak Frazier would beat Rocky so i can't see Ali losing. Probably another Ali UD cuz Rocky is very tough.

Ali UD Marciano.

Young Alii was a superior boxer imo. I think he could wel box his way to victory on this one. The older Ali rope a dope wouldnt work as such as a KO win is concerned as rockys stamina was second to none, but the rope a dope was more than just lying on the ropes, Ali blocked, parryd and slipped while on the ropes aswel as countering with accurate scoring punches. i think he could beat Marcinao either way tbh.
