Discuss in this thread all the myths Bert Sugar has said over the years and things he has said or done that have shocked you......

I will start

Lennox Lewis is not a top 15 Heavyweight
Michael Spinks is not a top 100 fighter
Ray Robinson is the only ever fighter to KO someone backwards

The Rocky Marciano nose cement thing on Ringside, The fight footage shows pretty well how they delt with the cut, by putting a endless supplie of guards in the Rock's nose.

Than Ringside, Bert forgets about the guards and says hey, they put fast drying cemate in the cut.

Yeah right.

Barney Ross has a great chin atg chin.

But other myth is the Ross was never floor myth that Bert keeps bringing up.

Ross was down a few times, but never ko in over 80 fights.

Bert Sugar keeps bragging about how he was in the ring sparring with Muhammad Ali ( at the time Cassius Clay)? Is this true, or just a story to give him more Boxing Credibility?
