Hell, even Samuel Peter made a nice slip-and-counter move last weekend. Watch at 6:51:

His opponent is no more than a gatekeeper of course, but that jab he countered wasn't slow or technically lacking.
Yeah, great stuff.

I rate Haye, I think he has loads of talent.
I like Peter too. When he's 240 pounds or less.

Haye vs. Peter would be interesting.

Gotta laugh at some of the people saying "Haye is too small". If he loses then most likely it's because his durability/stamina, or lack thereof, gave up on him. Not his "size".

Peter vs Haye would definitely be interesting. Peter seems to have his dedication back and hasn't looked as good since the Wlad fight.

I also wonder if Haye can finally put the nail in Ruiz's coffin. Honestly, i wouldn't be surprised if the bearded warrior manages to stretch him to the final bell and make it a close/boring fight.

Same old Nonsense. The era was filled with some of the better technical boxers we have witnessed on film(Johnson, patterson, machen, folley) along with dangerous sluggers(Valdez, Williams, Moore, Johannson). I would classify it as a strong era.

The film of Liston-Terrell is outstanding! I love it!

Terrell was leagues above thompson. Both Resume wise and Talent wise.

you're probably right.. If Vitali beat Lennox Lewis, that would be different though, haha. But seriously Terrell was a DECENT contender in the 60s in my opinion.
