Audley ****ing annihilates Rahman. No way can Rahman stand up to Audley's power. He goes down under Audley's first punch. Okay, that will probably come towards the end of the 6th round, but still.

Looking at the Boxrec top 100, Rahman would only stand a chance against Petkovic and Ceballos, and even then it's just a chance.

There are dozens of HWs outside that Boxrec top 100 that beat Rahman too. He's shot beyond belief. After the Povetkin "fight" he was saying he needed a fight against a top 5 fighter to show what he can do, well, some people wouldn't even put Povetkin in their top 5.
Agree. Rahman is not "past prime", he is beyond shot, his reflexes, stamina and speed are completely gone.

So true! How come Rahman couldn't just demolish one of these shitty, fake belt holders from today's terrible era?

I mean Foreman did it in the 90s didn't he? The 'oh-so-glorious' 90s!
