Lennox losing, both times, pushed him to stop being lazy and realize that if you let up, you can be defeated.

Marquez, with all the Pac bullshit, I feel is always desperately trying to prove himself at the A+ level.
Gatti, Wlad, Froch, Abril, Lundy, and I guess on a smaller scale Kirkland with abit more boxing, actually trying to setup Angulo for some bombs that impressed me abit instead of every shot being a powershot. Maravilla losing to Margo yrs ago and transforming into the beast his is today is impressive.

Agreed!! ****ell took a horrendous beating and really had no business being in there. They just played this on ESPN Classics the other day, always pisses me off when they play fights from the greats that were either pointless walkovers or when they're way past their prime like today they had Holyfield vs Savarese (who ****ing cares!!) it's a disservice to fighters like Holyfield showing them way past it over and over and making the younger kids watching think that's what Holyfield was! Their monthly airing of Leonard vs Hagler always drives me insane. They were playing RJJ vs Tito the other week

But ****ell had plenny a bottle, RTB. Not many could take Marciano's bunker busters 'n keep comin'. He was a true Brit bulldog.

Great thread by the way...
Hello buddy, hope you're well!

Jones at the Olympics was phenomenal.

Ali, Leonard, Jones, DLH.

You will see NOTHING like the talent those had, at this summers American Olympic squad.

I`m not a fan of his but Barrera became a better fighter after the Junior Jones losses.

SJS put me onto the doc about Paulie the other night.I'd wanted to see it for years but it reallly was even better than I hoped.Thoroughly enjoyed it.
When did you get to interview Paulie?
Excuse my ignorance but I'm not familiar with your work.
