On a slightly lesser scale i was shocked at how easily Chavez beat down my man Edwin Rosario.

Hopkins - Tito was a schooling for the 3-1 against Bhop.

Hopkins was the 3 to 1 underdog ?? Are you sure?

Trinidad had only had one fight at 160 and only two or three at 154 (where he got knocked down), while Hopkins was on a big winning streak.






Lewis-Tyson was a huge fight but hardly competitive.

Even though Tyson knocked him down, Tyson vs Douglas was pretty one-sided.

Someone posted 3-1 a day or two ago, i might look it up. Tito was the definite betting fave in America i know that much.

Maybe Marciano Moore?? Outside of the knockdown in round 2 of couse. It was a pretty one sided fight.

Agree with Ross Armstrong, though I gave the FIRST 5 rounds to Ross, Armstrong than started to man handle Ross.

Though I haven't scored it, just from a viewing perspective I thought the first few rounds were fairly close and then Henry just started beating Barney down.

Thats about what I say, I still have no ideal were that Armstrong carry Ross story came??

Ross was double over in round 13 from a Armstrong right to the belly, and in the 15 round, Armstrong was all over Ross hitting from body too head. And even SHAKING Ross. He was trying to knock Ross's block off.

one round KO's can happen in Boxing but when a fight goes the distance and a good match becomes a mismatch, Calzage/Lacy is one I can think of
