Default Holy Crap, Pinklon Thomas in the early 90's...

After his devesating losses to Bowe and Morrison (Which were years AFTER being killed in the ring by Holyfield) he fought 13 times in less than a year, winning all.

Not too bad for a fighter that was supposedly shot years before.

Gotta love the Michigan fighters. Not that I'm biased or anything...

I'm sure that with a name like Pinklon he'd have built up the size of his cojonas due to a lifetime of abuse and humiliation.

He was shot.

It was a nice little run, but it was a bunch of journeymen and a split decision against the terminally flabby and underachieving Craig Payne. Not the stiffest of competition.

The best thing about that time is that Pinklon had (properly) kicked the drug habit for good.
It felt a bit more like a farewell tour for Michigan.

Some of those guys I think I could have beat.
I'd take on "Bobby Jones" 0-15, and "Terry Miller", 0-8, no problem.
