I kinda like the ring of that - Zakman, Ayatollah of Boxing.

My first Fatwa? John Ruiz MUST be knocked out. A fight with Tua or Sam Peter is MANDATORY!!
You're calling a chinny HW who's been down more then a $5 whore godly?

I don't buy into the theory that Wlad has a glass jaw - he's been down, yes, but he's ALWAYS gotten up, unlike a true glass-jawed fighter like Hasim Rahman who gets utterly KTFO multiple times.

Wlad's chin is shaky, no doubt - but like Lennox Lewis, he seems to have been able to overcome his less than ideal punch resistance and come back.

Yeah, I don't get this either. People, as well as Zakman and Amsterdam, are saying they are right, but how? Taylor took a lot of really ****ing hard punches before being stopped. Needless to say, by a very, very hard hitter.

If you trsuted either of these two, you would be shocked Taylor made it to the 3rd round. It's probably just a ridiciulous case of hyperbole to prove their point, but Taylor's chin was underestimated by both.

I have no doubt both will ignore the facts, and live in an ignorant bliss that because someone was knocked out, it means they have a bad chin.

By the way, didn't both of you call Berto's chin shit too? After he got knocked down before, i seem to remember a huge fuss being kicked up, headed by the pair of you. Has Berto taking a good number of hard shots proved that wrong too?


Just to summarise, if a 10 is LaMotta or Hagler, Taylor's chin is probably a 7. Not granite, but far away from the 3 or 4 Zakman or Amsterdam would have you think prior to this bout.

just to comment about berto and amsterdam jack, he said that estrada would beat berto. So his predictions arent always on point.

Guys chins that aren't shaky typically don't get starched like Taylor did.

Wow. good call Zacman.

You are now the Ayatollah of Boxing.

You are still less Godly than me though
Prediction wise, I would not bet against the Zakster, or Amsterdam either.

You're bound to get some wrong here and there, but Berto's time is coming up soon, don't worry.

Are you having a laugh? Did you see how many punches Taylor took up until the ko? Did you see how many brutal punches Taylor took before actually being put out.

You and Amsterdam are delusional and/or stupid.

Stop disrespecting fighters. Let alone keep disrespecting them when you are wrong.

Taylor proved he has a good chin. Good chins can't keep taking those sort of heavy shots.
