Byrd was actually a late sub and not very highly regarded. Vitali was basically in Seth Mitchell territory at the time. HBO honestly hyped...
He wasn't a top ten contender and the stoppage was poor anyway.
He never destroyed a top ten contender, even with steroids.
It isn't straightforward at all. Cruiserweights back then had to weigh in at 190 or less and generally entered the ring in the low 200s. 191 was a...
That isn't a correctly phrased question. The limit was 190. That isn't debatable. With the weigh in rules, most were entering the ring in the low...
Morrison is the definition of a fringe contender. He finished 9th for two years in The Ring ratings annually and otherwise was absent. Usyk...
That's incorrect. The limit was 190.
Baldomir and Shawn Porter. Juiced out Mosley.
Why you differed from consensus scoring on all but the six unanimous rounds of Mayweather—Castillo, exhibit A.
Hardly. Cruiserweight was 190 in Morrison’s time and is 200 today. In ring, that’s about 215. Heavyweights to heavyweights.
Usyk was the only guy not to be knocked down or stopped in a title fight with Gassiev.
Morrison never even floored a top ten contender.
Vitali was regarded as an unproven robot. Give him the WBO belt and it could've happened. It would've even fit in with Tyson's world tour...
The Byrd loss made it not make sense for Tyson.
Vitali was hardly considered better than Golota back then.
Tyson would’ve gained a title.
I think he’d lose after failing to take Vitali out early.
Lewis was a longshot for Tyson at that point. Tyson was lurking in the division while being excluded from possible title shots except for Vitali.
Morrison had enough trouble with Vaulin, an inferior cruiserweight.
Yes we do.
Alvarez would starch him while down on the cards.
I probably had Holmes in the top 3 ten years ago. Now I have him behind Tyson.
I wouldn't pick anyone. But Usyk is just about as live as anyone else other than Holyfield.
I ended my day today with a family of patients who I've seen over the years. I saw the son first, early twenties. He got COVID in March but didn't...
Dingaan Thobela won a 168 title as a fat old guy, but was a lightweight in his prime.
Corrie Sanders was also past prime when he steamrolled Wlad.
