Tommy was great but Dennis put in one of the bravest performances I've ever seen that night.
And the Jeff Harding fights are a great watch.

I think it was 10 KD's, in round 6 he floors him 3 times and somehow Andries survives the round, despite being pretty much out on his feet. He was extremely tough. He improved even more when he started training with Emmanuel Steward.

The Harding fights were brutal.

Pretty crazy actually...

"In 2006, Atlas published his autobiography, Atlas: From the Streets to the Ring: A Son's Struggle to Become a Man. In the book, he revealed that he came close to murdering Lalonde. "When he made six million for Leonard, it tore me up," Atlas wrote. "It made me murderous." If Lalonde had not fired Atlas and he had been with Lalonde for the Leonard fight, Atlas would've gotten 10% of Lalonde's purse, $600,000.
Atlas described getting a gun and going to Lalonde's apartment building in New York. After getting buzzed into the building by another tenant, Atlas went to Lalonde's apartment and knocked on the door. "If he had opened the door, he was dead," Atlas wrote. "I would have pulled the trigger, turned around, and walked away." However, there was no answer.
Atlas waited through the night for Lalonde to return, periodically phoning the apartment. When he finally got through, Lalonde's girlfriend answered. When asked if Lalonde was home, she said yes. Atlas hung up and started making his way over to the apartment. Somewhere along the way, for whatever reason, Atlas changed his mind.
Lalonde knew nothing about it until the book came out, and a friend told him about it. "It actually didn't surprise me when I heard it," he said. "Teddy got into fights with trainers and fighters quite a bit when I was with him. he may not be the most stable person walking around."

Or is presumptuously assuming we know/care who his favorite fighter is among Moreno opponents and can sort out from there which fight he's referring to.

None of John Duddy's fights are celebrated and it's a tragedy.

Maybe he just means that ALL of Moreno's fights were "less celebrated."

And to that I ask: Which Moreno?

There's been some great threads on the subject.I think it's Caelum(sorry if it's not) who posted extensively on the matter.
I used to be a big fan of Teddy but I've come to think Donny might've had a point.

Doesn't that mean that ALL of his fights are "less celebrated" then?

He was tremendous for the sport, even if he wasn't destined for greatness.

The spiritual successor to Gatti, along with Mick Katsidis.

Among his least appreciated battles, I'd nominate Michi Munoz as the most satisfying. (and now for the mere fact of my having been sat at ringside for it, near enough to have probably needed a poncho for blood spatter )

Michi was game as they come and really made him work for the W, and old John kicked into high gear to get it done.

I think he means his favourite fighter is a guy called Ivan Martinez who got beat by a guy called Alvaro Moreno Gamboa.

John Duddy gets flack for being a "bum" but he went 12 rounds with Chavez Jr where decent contender Andy Lee could only last 7. The Chavez fight was an entertaining scrap but was not a real showcase for Duddy nor did the Medina fight. Sadly these were his two most known fights probably.

However keeping with the spirit of the thread, Duddy vs Cuevas was a very entertaining and underappreciated fight. Even those who think Duddy is a "bum" can enjoy this one if they can find it online.

I didn't intend to sound disrespectful about Duddy.I meant that every one of his fights deserve a place here so no one can complain about it being a well known or celebrated fight.
I liked Duddy.Know why he retired but would still have liked to see him have one more go.
