What do you think would have happened if Escalera had fought DeJesus around this time?
Just to even it up I've made it a catchweight bout of...
Interesting. What's your top 10 out of interest?
Concur with top 5 bantam and top 50 p4p.
Mayweather is the (retrospective) blueprint for this. Unexciting style and very economical but made millions.
You'd have your work cut out due...
H2H and achievement wise, they'd be right next to each other in any good p4p list. Toney edges it for me though.
It was from his haughty stare.
Frazier by TKO.
At lightweight? No I don't think so, although he did beat great lightweights albeit in higher weight encounters.
He's definitely an ATG, just not at heavyweight (in my view). Charles is borderline. The only other guy I'd consider as an ATG heavyweight is...
Lots of headlines saying Davis is calling out Loma now that he has moved up to lightweight. Then you read the article and he's saying he wants one...
My latest lightweight top 10:
1. Benny Leonard
2. Roberto Duran
3. Joe Gans
4. Ike Williams
5. Carlos Ortiz
6. Tony Canzoneri
7. Pernell Whitaker...
For their work in the heavyweight division alone? 11:
Ali-Frazier 1 and 3. Sure 2 was disappointing but so was the second fight of Barrera-Morales and Gatti-Ward.
Johnny Bratton. Compare:
Reading through this article on the BBC website about Robert McCracken's comments about the first Joshua-Ruiz fight and the recent deaths in...
'79-'80 Duran would have given Gavilan all he could handle. I do agree that a three fight series would favour Gavilan. But in a one off, I'd pick...
Ah well, as long as you picked Loma.
I've no idea which way this is going to go. The only results I don't forsee is Ruiz on points or a draw. The other three (Ruiz by KO, Joshua by KO...
You picked Campbell to beat Loma?!
Do they have to satisfy all those criteria or just one or more of the six points?
Ooh, I don't know - that's a pretty nebulous one!
In what ways do you think he was a better boxer? I'd pick Leonard too but just interested to understand what you mean.
Horrible matchup. Hopefully the ref would stop it before Barkley got too beat up.
Amen to that.
