We need more Gerry Cooney in this forum.
I'm guessing the blood pouring into his eyes was some sign of stigmata, proof of his sainthood, evidence for those few skeptics who remained....
I haven't given those rankings much of a look but at a glance he's far too biased towards the c. 1890-1915 era, that's about all there is to say.
I think there's a restaurant called Istanbul in North Finchley, so they might fight there.
So, do you think the fight is actually happening ?
You spent most of 2019 saying it's not happening, especially the last few months.
Bruno batters him.
Holyfield was completely shot.
I wasn't trying to be funny. I'm not making fun of anyone. Just stating a fact.
James Toney got hit plenty. If he'd had faced more good young...

In a thread recently discussing Dempsey versus Charles, amid claims that Charles had a much greater heavyweight resume than Dempsey, I asked : Is...
Prime Norton is probably more likely to knock Cooney out with 1 punch than have it done to him.
The guy Cooney beat was almost 38 years old, Lyle...
If he knocks Wilder out he's got to be rated highly.
Prime versions of Norton and Lyle would beat Cooney.
I have very little doubt of that.
They actually did.
I've said this before, but ideally I'd like the TV coverage with no commentary but retaining the sounds of the action and the arena.
Yeah, I can certainly understand that.
Yeah, I kind of agree.
Given the choice, on a big fight like this, I'd rather be able to SEE the thing. But radio always delivers what it is...
Whyte should beat old man Povetkin.
I doubt Ruiz will fight at all in 2020. If he gets back in the ring before the second half of 2021 I'll be...
