Nothing's ever definitive with you is it, you're all "I'll have to do this, I'm gonna do that, I aim to watch that". Did Jake have it? If he hasn't got back with anything in the affirmative, it's time to move on. Come on lad, shape!

What is your source on this...I have never heard Foster talk about it?

Don't think Monzon would have been around very long in that fight.

I have both Tonna and Moyer. Monzon was not dropped in either. The Moyer stoppage is strange and many claimed that the ref, who flew to the fight with Monzon, was in the bag but Monzon was not dropped three times.

Makes its sound like you are referring to the Moyer fight...
