Tommo, Collins, whoever... Dude, you're killing me. Like I said, you're ok with me but you gotta give credit where it is due and even though you can polish a turd... you must understand that at the end of the day it's just a piece of shlt!

Tommy Morrison wasn't shit man. He looked good against bums and even vs. some of them he struggled badly and even got his azs kicked.

A lot of guys look good vs. bums, or in the gym, or working out... doesn't mean they are anything special.

Hardly anybody looked better in the gym than Vinny Pazienza... the dude looked unbeatable in his workouts... he was far from great IMO.

Morrison stated himself that he wouldn't have even been a HW without steroids.

Oh wait, that wasn't Morrison who lost to that guy, it was the GOAT?!
Morrison lost to Bennt while in his prime, Ali lost 3 of his last 4 fights, id expect you to realise that a fighter near the end of his career, normally isnt as good as what he was a few years earlier

If i have to point that out to you, maybe you should move onto a different sport.

B. Their fighting in the cruiserweight division.
c. Their bulkng up with weightlifting, steriods etc to make more $ In the heavyweight division.

Ironically Morrison would fall into the C category. Unfortunately for him he brought that 180lb chin up to heavyweight with him. That and the heavily muscled frame lead to his lack of stamina and endurance.

He was a fun fighter to watch for about 3 rounds. Anyway cant believe this thread had gone so long.
