Armstrong was perpetual motion. A mavelous fighter, second only to Ray Robinson in terms of the greatest P4P fighters of all time. Aromstrong would have fought for the HW title if the opportunity had been presented to him & if the money was right for him!

Henry was a true pro - he didn't care about all this weight issue, he just fought, regularly conceading a lot of weight to his opponents!

Wonderful fighter. Certainly don't make them like him anymore!
