Haven't seen it in years, but always looked to me like Shavers was holding Ellis' head down while he threw that uppercut. Also did a similar...
Shavers - Ellis?
Was just about to edit my original post to add that one.
Like Duran v. Buchanan and Monzon v. Tonna.
Any other fights come to mind?
Right. Didn’t even take a very good professional heavyweight.
The Galento who resides in this forum is basically a prime David Tua supercharged with the grit and roughness of Rocky Marciano though.
Sugar Ray Leonard.
He could possibly beat any of them, if the stars aligned.
At least slightly. Losing to a smaller, inactive, post-prime fighter is never a good look, and the fight arguably further raised questions about...
Yeah, they were very blatant and completely avoidable fouls. (bump)
Has there ever been a Vasquez v. Trinidad thread?
With a not-so-small difference being that Leonard and his people publicly stated that they planned to fight Duran's fight before the fight...
Yeah, Leonard never really struck me as a guy who cares much about how hardcore boxing fans rate his victories though.
Interesting point that...
Except he probably considers it flattering to the extent that it makes him look shrewd and smart. Especially after so many people (rightly)...
Frankly, the idea that Leonard saw that Duran put on a lot of weight and scheduled the fight in November to catch him unprepared is so silly that...
Duran was in shape.
Right. Won't persuade the "fake news" conspiracy theorists, but it seemed pretty convincing to me...
Unpopular opinion (around here): It's a real shame that Richard Steele stopped the Chavez-Taylor fight.
This is a tough one. Ray was a better boxer/h2h, but that doesn’t tell us anything about which of them were “greater.”
Leonard’s wins over...
Yeah, it was pretty shameless:
Gomez got away with a bunch of low and illegal blows against Lupe Pintor.
Tyson got away with all types of fouls in the Ruddock rematch.
Benn's late punches vs. Barkley were pretty outrageous.
Froch got away with a ton of rabbit punches and some late punches against Groves.
What is this, like some kind of 1950s street fight where two gangleaders square off at a predetermined time to settle their gangs' beef?
