Default Most shot fighters of all time?

Who are they, and why?

Is it a dying Miske continuing to fight?

An old, blind Sam Langford?

Jack Johnson fighting until he was almost 50?

What's the matter with Vargas that makes him eligible here?

Holyfield - way pass his prime.

Even the rest of the old Heavyweights that are trying to make a comeback - since the division is shitty right now.

Holmes-52 beating Butterbean's ass.
Johson-fighting till he was around 62.
Moore-fighting until he was in his 50's, or around there.

Surely the Ali that fought Holmes qualifies.

The contrast between the fighter that we saw in that ring that night to the Ali we had known and loved before it was pretty shocking.

I'm not. But there are plenty in the world who just love to get a bit righteous on bad taste posts!

Oh come on Manassa, we all know you like to play that "I like to be different and controversial just for the sake of it" card, but that was a bit stupid, if nothing else.

No it is not, I think Ketchel was shot more, and I suspect he was still not the most 'shot'.
