I think Tyson deserves a lot more credit.I can't take comments like Larry was not prepared or underestimatedTyson too serious. But it is true that...
Both did not have a good chin. Jones chin was better in my view.
I scored that one for Holyfield by 1 point.He blocked many of Lewis shots.So all in all a draw and a Lewis win was fair to me.
While it is not unreasonable to argue that Kalambay wins a close one, you do not outhustle an in shape Toney.It is a myth which is entirely based...
Toney likely stops him,He was at his best at 168.
Agreed Toney by SD. Some might bring up the Johnson and Griffin fights.I thought Toney won those fights.

Ali close decision
Yes Hill had a granit chin

Injuries and the robbery in Peter I...
Outjabbing Hill? That is some task
Hill by close points win
Holyfield by UD, his combination punches being key here.
He stalled James for weeks.Bernard never returned the contract signed.Then James finally fought Holyfield where he was a 3-1 underdog.
Archie on points
No no the fight was in serious negotiations in 2003 but then Bernard backed out. James really wanted that fight, Bernard pulled some BS excuse at...
Mc Callum was the more skilled operator in my view.
Actually, Hopkins called Toney out after the Jirov win.The fight was then being seriously discussed.But Hopkins backed out of the fight.James...
Not surprising, you never give props to Toney,
Mercer from the Holmes fight would have beaten Lennox on that night.
Toney on points. More speed, more power, more skills.
The fight never happened because Bernard ducked Toney at cruiser in 2003.At middleweight,...
