I imagine they had a rematch clause and Kov would’ve been beaten in the rematch.
It was after the annual rankings and leading up to the Vitali fight.
He beat Austin in December which might have been after the annual rankings...
It’s been hashed over several times on this forum. Plus I followed Solis intensely and thought he was headed for the top so I remember his name in...
Inaccurate. Johnson and Solis were ranked. Chisora would have been but The Ring respected the Helenius verdict which nobody agreed with.
The OP called 175 cannon fodder. 190 was thought of as the worst division back then.
Too long of a layoff. Probably shows up at 290.
He’s much better off than Sam is.
Cruiserweight was cannon fodder back then. Gomez was stationed in Germany and would’ve stayed there. Jirov would be fun but one sided. Nelson...
Canelo would beat him at 154 and 160. Tito would look robotic.
Rocky exemplified picture perfect fight etiquette.
Well, Ortiz and Wlad share a common opponent from back then in Jennings and Ortiz thoroughly outperformed Wlad.
It must also be noted that Fury...
Wlad was also old as dirt, although you may insist that his prime was pushing 40.
He has a high ratio of intelligence inside the ring vs. outside the ring.
Perhaps injuries hampered him in all 20 of his loses.
Fun facts: 1. Hopkins started slipping shortly after Tito 2. Hopkins turned pro late while Walcott turned pro as a teen. 3. Hopkins is the oldest...
Why did you just insult me? If you knew the sport, you’d know that Hopkins was much worse at 40.
I don’t live under the delusion that fighters pushing 40 are new and improved.
Somehow Rex Layne, Joey Maxim, and Elmer Ray did it.
Just checked. Ward is still undefeated and never fought those shells of great fighters.
Wrong. None were prime.
Marciano never beat anyone as good as Ward.
Getting punched in the head is the number one reason for deaths in boxing.
Horn actually won his rematch unlike "No Mas" and Tommy "Play It Safe and Lose a SD" Hearns.
He beat Hide for the WBO belt.
