That's definitely a legacy of sorts.

Exactly. That argument was bogus when King first tried to use it 17 years ago, and it hasn't gotten any more valid since!

I don't think he took a dive.

I do think he got fat, didn't train, didn't really try, and was there purely for the money though.



And give up the long count shit. The ref could have counted as quick as he could have got the words out, and Douglas would have got up. He was watching the ref as a good fighter should.

the way some people carry on, it's as though the ref waited until Buster was OK.

Tysons count wasn't a whole lot quicker either. Difference is, ref could have counted to 20 for Mike, wouldn't have mattered.

I thought Busters best bit of legacy was finally putting to rest the theory that getting pizza delivered to the sauna is a good way to lose weight.

Armstrong couldnt take a dive though, because of the moons low gravity.

Buster wouldn't have won a UD, they would've fudged it (as they were already doing) to get Mike a gimme draw.

As for the 'long count' stuff, spare me...not only was Buster watching the ref intently from about the count of 3 and was ready to rise, but the ref did the same slow count for Mike (who was crawling about on the canvas for most of the count instead).

I dont think it would have made much of a difference. Douglas was giving Tyson a shalacking the whole fight. The fact that anyone could have Tyson ahead in that fight is just a joke. Douglas did the right thing and went for the KO.

I dont know about that. Douglas had way more skills than Mcall. He actually had a very good jab and right hand, he just never really had the fighting spirit he showed in the Tyson fight. Mcall was also a Tyson sparring partner, so Mcall mentally would not be prepared like Douglas was for Tyson, not to mention a unmotivated Douglas beat MCall rather easily.
