Makes the last round of Martinez vs JCC Jr look tame.

Mate some fighters these days don't put that much effort during 3 twelve rounders , then you get complete and utter cunts coming on here trying to tell us today's fighters would muller any fighter of yesteryear because humans improve with every passing generation . **** me If that was true after watching that again today our next champion will be a cross between robo ****ing cop and the terminator .

Yep josey it was mainly about that elusive World Title belt years ago and the prestige that went with it,sure Money had a huge beaing also but to put that magnificent world Title belt around your waist and realise that you are the best in the World must have been a huge incentive,turn the clock forward to now,World Title belts are like Arse Holes every one has one,and that is the reason we see them Cherry Picking there fights and Manipulating there careers in the process.!!

May never see the likes of the era I grew up with when there was no where to run and no where to hide,but I feel fortunate to have witnessed a time where the best fought the best and if you had a World Title belt you were a wanted Man.
When there was only one belt up for grabs and you had all the great Fighters from each division wanted the same thing it was a recipe for Legends to be made,and Boy they did not let Us down wish it would go back to the way it was,My Kid's would love it.!!!!

Great post FOS you continue to educate your children by showing them these fights and I will do likewise with the grandson , sure we get the occasional barn burner from time to time but there is no way on earth we would have been left wondering about who the best in the division was back in the day however I'm still pissed Pryor & Leonard never got made .
