I liked the book alot. Read it twice. If you like boxing biographies this is a must IMO. Interesting man.
If I remember correctly Lyle slipped pretty quick. 78 Lyle may have enough left. I'll give him the edge here
Matt was slipping by the time he fought Braxton. Too many wars just made him age prematurely. Either way I have Braxton beating him prime for prime
Yes Joe said in his book he liked Quarry and liked his Mom alot too. Norton wasnt happy about it Joe said as Norton didnt like him.
Yea I'm not suprised
Challenging the claim Floyd Mayweather is the greatest of all time. Haaaaaaaa
Wow 110 pages.
Honestly pretty pathetic.
Bowe beats the dog #### out of Carnera and is levels above him in talent.
If people cant figure that it's...
Jeez I did not know that. That's sad wasting a life like that.
Everything you said is on the money. Excellent footwork. Good jab. Slick defense he only lacked a punch. After he lost the belt I believe his...
Frazier obviously gave no quarter nor asked for it. Like Dempsey he was known to be rough sparring but with that style there isnt much choice. IMO...
Camden Buzz Saw
I personally really like Hanks style. Like him alot
Did you even read my post? Obviously not I said if that's the measurement of his thigh after a full training camp then no hes not making 168. Next...
Were the measurements taken after a full training camp at weigh in? If so theres your answer he isnt getting down to SMW
I believe Mike has a more varied and versatile skill set. Hopkins isnt setting any traps for Mike and making him fight his fight.
I rate Mike as...
I realize that. I only said what I said because it looks like a forearm hit. Which is why I asked for ringside consensus
Still looks to me like Carnera hit him with the inside of his forearm. Another camera angle would have helped.
What was the consensus at ringside?
But was it on the level?
Wasnt he also mobbed up to the gills at a time when boxing corruption was pretty common? It's not unheard of to believe the mob had one of the...
I dont really know how many of his fights were on the level so I dont buy into anything about the man except his guts. He had guts
Would be a very entertaining fight. Both guys are underrated. At there best I got Zivic
An absolute monster. Underrated boxing skills. Easily top 10. I do feel he was closer to 40 than 30 when he fought Ali though
Nice post. Would be a great fight. Unfortunately I can't make a pick. Just too close to call.
50/50 for me. Valdez was a great underrated fighter
He was already in tip top shape and he had those legs like a power lifter. That's hereditary. No was he gets any lighter IMO
