Exactly. People are using the fact that he got up to imply it wasn't a fix. It's not like he could've stayed down there forever :lol:
Yeah I wouldn't say he was a bum. Bums don't hold a win over Lennox Lewis (even a badly prepared one) and become world heavyweight champion.
I'd say they were. (Patterson I'm least confident about.).I think his win over Lewis however puts them over all of them in terms of greatness with...
I'd say Patterson, Williams, Machen, etc were better than Rahman.
Frazier would've reigned a lot longer without the added damage he took in the FOTC. Foreman wouldn't have lost to anyone imo which actually...
Think Liston holds the title until Frazier dethrones him circa 67.
If I'm not mistaken didn't Louis have a restaurant at one point?
Fair enough. I disagree. As a matter of fact I think he displayed his best bodywork against Ruddock. But to each their own.
Thank you. Very interesting read.
All right. Thank you for clearing that up John. Can you point to me where Frazier delves into it? I'd be genuinely interested.

Tyson was 21 when he beat Spinks :lol: his prime didn't end until he went to prison.
Tbf I can punch better than that. :lol:
Seriously? Out of Foreman and Liston, Liston was the one who was incapable of adapting? :lol: Watch his bouts with Williams and Machen. Conversely...
[MEDIA] this is it. Skip to 8:35.
64 Ali was better seeing as he could still dance and didn't need to resort to the rope-a-dope.
Knowing you, you'd probably give that biker a 50/50 chance against Liston if he wasn't caught off guard.
Yes. Even this Liston was better than the prime Tyson Douglas beat.
I think most people underestimate Ali's performance in the FOTC. Sure he may have lost, but he put up a hell of a fight. One of his best...
Should I believe you or people who were actually there?
:lol: "We polled over 100 media people, boxers, trainers and managers who watched the fight, and not one of them scored the fight for Briggs,″...
That Dempsey must've been a featherfist! :lol:
