No Liston stops him.
It doesn't "violently" jerk his head.Wev'e all seen the blow land .dozens and dozens of times ,and in slo mo.I think he laid down to orders...
Me too, I cant believe it would have been off the radar all these years.
Gavilan looks really sharp here.
Tito was a sucker for the jab as Wright proved ,Hearns could jab his face off without trying for the ko.
Don King wasn't even involved in boxing in1964 and 65. Do some research FFS Fella!
What has that to do with whether the ko was genuine or not?
I can tell you . Zero!
It may have been hard enough to drop him I dont believe it was hard enough to keep him down for ten and Liston never denied he could have gotten...
Nope immediately after the fight ,he told his brother Rahman, "he laid down".
I think it was a fix Liston was told to take a dive and before the fight he told his friend and sparring partner, don't bet on me.
I don't think...
Actually it was Nat Fleischer ,at the request of the timekeeper who made Walcott aware that the timekeeper had counted Liston out.
The timekeeper didn't screw up ,Walcott did not know where he was, his fault for not ascertaining his position before the fight started.
Don King had nothing whatsoever to do with either fight.
Actually it isn't proven at all.
And if AJ ko's Ruiz in style in the rematch most will be picking him again,so why not wait until his career is over?
No he didnt Johnson was a better contender than either a washed up Corbett ,Finnegan, or Munroe.
Why should Jeffries defend against 9 fight McVey...
Apart from Cuevas ,who did Hearns beat at147lbs?
He has a strong claim to the White Championship!
Explaining his reluctance to fight Johnson yet again, Archie Moore said," Harold cant draw his breathe at the gate."
Burley changed managers as often as he changed his socks,plus he was hampered by injuries on several occasions.He was a great fighter but nobody...
I prefer to look at who he has actually beaten.An old Wlad, a second stringer in Chisora .and an unproven Wilder,
Not great legacy material imo.
Given that Sharkey went a total of 45 rounds in 2 fights with Jeffries whilst weighing about the same as Marciano,you at least have to give...
A blow by blow description can be found in Pollack's bio of Fitzsimmons.He nearly killed Ruhlin.
