Don't know if that is the way to analyze this fight.Ali was young, quick and terrific condition and fleet of foot when he fought Liston,who was on the down hill slide.Foreman was young and powerful when he fought an older, slower, Ali who laid on the ropes and took shots from Foreman for seven rounds.

Liston is all wrong for Foreman. I don't think this would be a very tough fight for Liston at all as he was a solid boxer who's jab would be able to dominate Foreman's come forward style. I think a more interesting matchup would be Liston Louis personally. How do you guys see that one going?

Hi Luigi,

My family originated from the Southern regions, Naples and Calabria.

All of the oldtimers have passed on, so it is very difficult to find out
about my family's origins. I will eventually visit Italy and hope to
see much of the country. Sicily, Milan, Sardinia, Florence!!!

My wife's ancestors are from the Island of Iscea (I koow I am
not spelling that right). The island that her family came from is
known as a very beautiful place.

My wife told me that the Italian food in Italy is so much better
than the Italian food here in the USA.

BTW, Are there any other Italian heavyweights coming along?

Iīm from Puglia (a city named Foggia), thatīs in Southern Italy. Where is your family from? For me personally, the Italian women are very pretty in general, but you know, everywhere are beatiful girls...

Aha, very interesting!
Mhmm, well, Roberto Cammarelle, a very good amateur, turns perhaps pro after China 2008, heīs in the same league as Povetkin, otherwise there arenīt that many Italian HW prospects outthere...
