    why does it matter If I work or dont has nothing to do with anything here not insulted by that

    and like I keep saying I dont believe in talking the way i talk as wrong or any way a person wants to talk right or wrong it's all opinion so no my grammer is not bad
    why do you crazy peoplekeep saying that like im hurt by it im not hurt over a choice of talking so why keep trying to use it as a insult

    and I was off for some days before I got here people and I was Last month I read the reason they were banned was cause of nothing big people sensitive here at the truth

    I wont change for you weak people stop being weak this is the internet it's not in person if you have a problem with how I am block the trolls or liars who been here for years cause that has been a problem not people like me who keep it raw and tell you people how you are

    banning me here wont stop the truth people like legend san bomber and others will always put the truth out so you people cant stop the truth it will always come in another person

    My all time dream fight, this would be so much fun! I think it would be similar to Foreman and Frazier, although Tyson has the speed to connect, Foreman's iron chin could survive the first few heavy punches. Stylistically, I think it favor's Foreman, with Tyson potentially ducking into Foreman's uppercuts.

    At the same time, I don't think prime George would beat Larry Holmes in 1988 like Tyson did. George seemed to have the hardest time against guys who could jab and move like Jimmy Young.

    Foreman, in a significant development, makes Mike look away during the staredown, looking as though the smaller man owed him big money.

    Foreman gets rocked good a few times in the first (giving Tyson fans reasons to cheer), but it soon becomes apparent George is ultimately dictating the fight on his terms. Turning Mike around, parrying and then bullying his shots...eventually Mike starts getting turned directly into Foreman's jabs and it's the beginning of the end.

    The uppercut nearly decapitates Mike in the second round, he barely gets up at a count of 8. Mike tries a winging right, but in a replay of what happened in the next to last round of Holy/Tyson I, Foreman gets his right through first and Mike is unconscious before he hits the canvas.

    George by 2nd round knockout.

    George Foreman learned that cold intimidating stare from his idol Sonny Liston.

    Could be, although ATGs getting another out within 2 rounds is rare.
    Even Frazier losing to Foreman was when he was well beyond prime.
    More likely a middle round KO. Consider how much a fairly washed up Tyson took from lewis, even if he was hesitant because he hurt his right hand.

    Maybe nobody should put down your grammar or not working now, that is fair.
    But also realize that this is fairly restrained given how you get abusive sometimes.

    You are hard to comprehend, because yes as a matter of fact your grammar is very poor.
    OK, but then people are patient & nice to you.
    It is a self-aggrandizing delusion to pretend that people are mad at you because you "speak the truth".

    There is no evidence of this.
    You were not banned because anyone is "weak".
    Take responsibility for your Dark Side: you yet again called multiple people who differed with you "idiots"!
    Despite being called out on it.
    Nobody was mean to you.

    Not being able to handle the Truth of you inarguably being nasty when folks make special effort to even understand what you are saying...
    That is an ego-based weakness.

    Deal with it.
    And get better.
