By the way, dad and Ruben nearly had a return in the summer of 1970 in London. Ruben was also looking at Rodolfo Martinez at that time. One of the...
I've just had another look at the Seeley fight. I don't know if you speak Spanish but the commentator mentions that Ruben has always had trouble...
Seen the Seeley fight, love to see the Ramirez fight.
Anyone mention Tommy Farr vs Joe Louis?
Sorry for the delay George. I'm like everybody else, I haven't seen the fight but I've spoke to dad about it. He said he just got copped early by...
It did look like Robertson was unlucky.
Maybe not on the level of most of the above mentioned but Buster Drayton at light middle was a helluva puncher.
After watching the Ramos's I came across this gem. I really enjoyed watching this with all the build up. I didn't really know a lot about this...
I'll talk about that fight tomorrow.
Mando Ramos vs Sugar Ramos
This really was a great fight. I wasn't really in line with the judges here particularly referee John Thomas who scored...

Thanks for taking the time to score it. I think it's a great fight and nobody has seen it more than me. Interesting you picked out that shot in...
Look forward to it, whatever way you see it Rough.
Always interesting to see someone else's take on this fight. Like you say, a lot of subjective rounds. McGrain also said this when he...

have you scored the first fight?
At the risk of being self indulgent here's a post about the Harada Jofre rivalry I did a few years ago in a thread about me dad and Fighting...
He did give Pastrano a good fight though for the light heavyweight title. Willie was no mug.
I wouldn't say he was a prospect, he already had a wealth of experience. I would say he's become a better fighter since then.
Rose vs Famechon.
Olivares vs Jofre at featherweight.
Trainer of Champions.
I fancy Chucho late as well.
