Default What ONE Ability distinguish Riddick Bowe from every other super heavy weight?

Riddick Bowe have something no other super heavy weight ever had.

Not Lewis. Not Wlad. Not Vitali.

Not the 2nd tiers like Tucker.

Not the 3rd tiers like Grant or Mccline.


Not even the 5th tiers like David Price.

Riddick Bowe is unique in this..

I don't know. I seem to think that has always been a strong ability or quality for most heavyweights of the past 40 years.

Well it did distinguish him from the great heavyweights for sure, and its probably what prevented him from joining their ranks

The one thing that distinguished Bowe from most was the need to design a kitchen attached and only accessible from his bedroom.

yeah I know. I remember back about 1985 we had good fighters with speed and skills, yet lazy guys who always came in out of shape and heavy and uninspired/inconsistent like Tony Tubbs, Buster Douglas, Tim Witherspoon, Tony Tucker, Pinklon Thomas, Carl Williams. Most of them Tyson defended against and it was so nice to see Mike clean out the division of some of these guys, who had the skills but were lazy fighters. I know Douglas beat him, and he didn't fight Witherspoon, but the 1980s fighters were what later Riddick Bowe became.

I think it's his infighting.

He sought to work inside which too many congratulated him for but which caused him too take too much punishment.

its interesting because he was strong inside, but that is why he was susceptible to the low blows and body punches himself of Golota.
