Not sure J, not sure about that, give me some time to do some research, I'm on a course today so I have some downtime.

Tapia reminded me of Gatti, Corrales, Ward and the like...you would have to hit the c**t with a shovel to get him out of there....

I would argue for Corrales, that kid could bang, was ring savvy. But never mind, buddy. Let's remember the great man. I have a career set of Tapia...might plunder that later tonight....

We'll agree to disagree, buddy. If you don't have any ring savvy....how the hell did he get Castillo out of there?

A great man on here John Garfield was ringside that fight, allegedly there was very little thrown that didn't land.

I think we've got different perceptions of ring savvy. Having no defence and being exciting does not=savvy IMO.

As you said, another time, another place. R.I.P Tapia.

Nice one F, thank you for your input.

You could argue, Sir, for Gatti? He had the same...

...though I still rate Gatti and Corrales as talented.
