Default Re: Money's 42-0 run more legendary than Chavez's 87-0 run

its not fair to make Chavez a legend, when we have legends and degrade them...Mayweather beat more champions, won more titles and hall of famers in less fights than Chavez more than half, has to be noteworthy

Robinson's 128-1 (84 KO) run is the greatest anyways. He avenged that loss five times over.

Well, four times anyway since he won the first fight.

jose luis castillo gave floyd his first loss imo and in MANY people's opinions....

Chavez would have done the same, only a lot clearer....

might have even made him piss blood like taylor!

Another good post by someone who knows what they're talking about.

Taylor couldve been great and I feel for him. Shit smells real foul considering Tyson had just lost to Douglas and King's other prize horse was about to lose that 0.

MT had some of the fastest hands in history, but they didnt pack a whole lot of power aside from overwhelming opponents by accumulation. Chavez had such a chin that he could walk through virtually anybody's shots and keep coming, like a Cyborg. (did it to Rosario and proceeded to beat the shit out of him).
I do feel bad for Taylor, the one fight he gave his all in and that was gonna make him the best or just someone who stepped up and lost and he couldn't take the win. But in the condition he was all it took was one more punch. maybe there wasnt enough time for it but the ref isnt supposed to keep time when this happens. Only person i blame is his coach for telling him he should have fough instead of telling him to just stay on the outside for the last round
