James Toney couldve been much more if it wasnt for his obsession with food.

Golotta maybe,i was watching the 2nd bowe fight last night, and at times he looked really good,such a pity, i used to like the guy,but he must have been mental,he fell apart against lewis and tyson,and had bowe beat twice,before he tried to rip his nuts off.

Naseem Hamed if he had stayed with Ingle and not listened to his brothers.

The margin by which he failed to beat John Ruiz and Hasim Ramhan is the margine by which he missed being ring heavyweight champion.

I'm wondering if Oscar Bonavena might have been better had he toned down his lifestyle a bit. Oscar was well known for going out on the town the night before a fight, and partying his ass off. He would wind up in his hotel room with multiple women at 2 or 3 oclock in the morning, just a few hours before he had to wake up and have breakfast.
