Guys like Jermain Taylor, I don't find it hard to respect him, because I simply have ZERO respect for him and never will, so it's not an internal conflict.

What's your beef with the sheriff ?

Assuming the fight isn't in Germany or the USA, who would you take between Ottke and Taylor at 168?

Manny Pacquaio, not because of the fighter but because of his fans. Their complete overrating of him has made me turn against him, one fan in particular *cough* PacDbest *cough* goes way over the top.

I'm curious, how many know that the guy in the mugshot in your avatar is Malcolm Little?

I didn't clock that until you mentioned it. A young version, minus the eye glasses.

It's his mugshot. Probably from the early 50s when he was known as "Detroit Red". He didn't get the glasses until after a few years in the clink when he would read long after 'lights-out' using the moonlight in his cell.

Riddick Bowe.

I can see the skill, I can even see the humourous and generous side to the guy. I can appreciate those that love him. But damn, he pulled some extremely low-class stuff throughout his career and it makes me hard to put aside my personal dislike of the man.
