Default Fighters there are rarely threads of?

Is it that people are unwilling to expand their historical horizons?

Let talk about Duran some more! What about Dempsey's title defences ay, oooo, never heard that one, or if Tyson didn't go to prison. I know, lets have Leonard vs. Hagler...'who really won', uuuuuugghhhh, who gives one! There's been a bo-gillion better fights where more worthy men spilt their appendixes who were not wrapped in any of the highlighted footnotes or Technicolor glam that invariably fixates you to the most overcooked sagas in history.

I may jam a knife through my leg! Ouch!

Now talk about a fighter i've never heard of before and I want you to objectively rate him higher than Frankie Genaro.

Anybody at flyweight except Jimmy Wilde.

The bantems are sold short also.

Fred Aposti
Alberto Davila
Joe Brown maybe

I don't think Antonio Cervantes gets talked about enough relative to his abilities

Many true stories told here.

Apart from the one i did awhile back and one other one before that (that i can remember), Yoko Gushiken, the master.

ive never really read about the Flys just watch them and id say there better than watching heavyweights any day. So much action

Chang is one of my favrouites but he gets alot of threads
