De La Hoya Vs Trinidad...up until the 11th round Oscar was given Tito a boxing lesson...( Why De La Hoya decided to run in the 12th round is still beyond me )...

Given he was shot (literally) it wasn't half bad.

Bruno against Tyson was bad, Tyson didn't even look like he wanted to be there and Bruno could've taken advantage but froze up.

Frazier v Foreman was bad in the sense Frazier fought a stupid fight, going straight back to a man who knocked you around like a ragdoll isn't the smart thing to do, even tho thats the only way Frazier knew how.

Tyson took a shellacking and still managed to badly hurt and drop Douglas. Shambolic approach to the fight in ring and in his corner, but nowhere near one of the 'worst performances'.

Paul Royston against Alex Matvienko, a small hall show near Manchester back in 2009.

Royston made Andre Dirrell seem like Marvin Hagler from the Hearns fight.

I cant believe no one has mentioned Bruce Seldons pathetic attempt at 'defending' his 'crown' against Mike Tyson.


Was it Willie Pep who won a round without throwing a punch?

Well Mike Tyson won a world title without landing one

Bruce Seldon takes top prize here. His performance vs Tyson was shameful..more so than any fighter I've ever seen.

I found this comment on one of the videos regarding Seldon

'Bruce Seldon is the most courageous fighter in history. It takes a lot of balls to flop and quit in front of all those people, when your whole team has devoted themselves to getting you ready. Hes really an inspiration to me. Let his example be the light guiding your life. If you have a goal, work hard, impress people, get there. If its too tough at the top, just quit and say **** it. That way, you don't get hurt, and you never have to admit to yourself you failed while truly trying your best'



'Bruce wasn't diving- he just had some severe mental instability...kinda like a fainting goat. Some people faint from seeing blood, needles etc. Bruce fainted when he felt leather on, or anywhere near, his face'

Witherspoon,Page, and Tubbs really tested my love of boxing during their lean fests in the 80's

Seldon could have learned from Liston. Maybe he poured over the Liston-Clay II film.

If you want to take a dive, just fall down. The "punch" will be found, somehow. It will always be proven that there really was a punch.
