Default question bout turpin and marciano....

noticed turpin kod ****ell in 11 and the rock did it in 9. will admit ****ell took a terrible beating from the rock and was game to the bone. did turpin give him as bad a beatin as the rock? also why didnt lamotta nd turpin ever matchup? that would have been a great fight!

****ell had genuine gland trouble with his weight and was struggling with it when his good mate, randy battered him.
lamotta had given up trying to make 160 when the leamington licker was on his way up.

Turpin's BEST performance was that fight with ****ell, Randy boxed lovely, ****ell was tidy in it too. But Turpin landed a beauty and ****ell never recovered and took a few more.

This was ****ell the L-HW, his REAL weight, he shouldn't have been fighting Heavies, so it just shows you the calibre ****ell was too.

in a series ****ell would have reversed this decision and come out on top, but Turpin boxed perfect that night, his best ever performance and as I said caught Don a beauty, followed up by a few more, game over.

the fights on youtube worth the watch for both men!

Randy did not give don a bigger beating than marciano but he did put Don away with cleaner punches. ****ell boxed brilliantly himself but Randy found the right punches. Don was a very good fighter with slick moves. It was a pity he struggled with gland trouble. The fight is on youtube. A good win for Randy.
