Built-in excuse already.
Glad I'm not the only one who thinks Ingo should be rated higher.
We consistently harp on mythical matchups on this forum. Our biases bring out strong reactions when it comes to certain fighters and eras. How...
Did Murata ever have a chance? Lol
Ehh idk about the Reid comparison. Eye issues forced him to step up pretty quickly.
Fighting once or twice a year didn't help. He was much busier in 1983 and before. Fighting tough opponents your whole career is physically taxing.
Are we talking about aggression or physicality?
Canelo vs Floyd obviously
You're overrating Moorer.
You don't have to be "dangerous" to win a fight though.
Moorer was vulnerable with weak opponents at LHW. Saad and Yaqui get the edge due to...

It's a win-win for the older fighter in my book. They get tremendous praise if they win. If they lose? Well, he was past his prime.

Canelo thought it was necessary to agree to the fight. Maybe...

Canelo boiled down to 154 anyway (his advantage). Blame Canelo and his team for being overconfident in believing he could still have an advantage...
Haha I've mainly heard that about Quarry.
1995 (a great year lol)
Sorjuatang vs Gonzalez Round 7
I learned about the solar plexus early as a kid too. Most times I'd almost throw up!
