No one better from that era to accommodate him than Johnson. You seen the first fight? Another 'Miracle' from Matthew. Mental.

One of my top 5 or so absolute favourite fighters.
I haven't seen their fight the NABF title yet. I've seen Lopez II, which has consistently been among my top 5 for a long time.

What do you think of him offensively, from a technical standpoint? I think his delivery is beautiful.

I edited when I realised I hadn't addressed exactly that question

Anyway, his best jabbing performance is the 1st fight with Lopez IMO.

I'm downloading the fight in full at the moment, but I've seen the knockout. Overhand right, left uppercut? If it is that one, yes, it's incredible.

Of course. I prefer it to Lopez II to be honest but of Saad's action comebacks I rate the Johnson fights the best (the 2nd for action, the first for the maddest comebacks) but as I've stated many times one of, if not my alltime favourite fight, is Saad Vs Conteh I. Beautiful, exciting, diverse, satisfyingly close and not controversial regardless of which side of the fence you sit on.

Me? After the 14th I had Saad a point or two ahead so I think he pulled it back miraculously again, but for me I love the technical warfare laid down by both men.

It became even more mystical once I watched Conteh's prior fight (with Burnett) That is a completely shot fighter handed a gift. And then you see him against Saad and it's like he's found himself, he's loving in a bubble; for a short time, he can box close to his very best.

Says something of Saad when he managed to overcome Conteh regardless of his last chance saloon performance in that fight.

I watched their rematch once, years ago and will probably never relive it again. Going off the Burnett fight that's what you think would've happened in their first encounter.

Thankfully it didn't and we got a 15 round title fight that had a bit of everything.

Thanks for that, Flea. I was wondering how good Conteh was on the night of the first fight, that's all.

I just watched the Vonzell Johnson fight. Vonzell was a big dude, a smart boxer, and he seemed to dominate Saad in the early goings. Saad refused to jab his way in, and instead threw right hand leads which weren't landing. Saad's imperious strength would eventually tell though. I would have liked to see him use his jab more and setup the big shots.

Yeah, I agree but he was sliding by then anyway. Savage ending. Don't **** with Matthew Saad Muhammad.

If it had been a younger Conteh he would of pulled it off IMO.

I was on about Saad Vs Vonzell Johnson but I agree with that point

True but he sucked it up didn't he! Done himself good IMO, considering how it ended.

I reckon some of his beltline stuff hurt Fenech though.
