    Been a tough few weeks for Eastside.

    Both your Gods have shown not to live up the hype machine.

    But Loma beats Floyd and Duran, and Uskyk beats Ali and Tyson, right?

    Hang in there, guys.

    TBF you could have looked at Ali in the Wepner fight and thought he wasn't up to much.

    Good post. Hopefully the EE bandwagon will tone down a bit. It’s been a humbling couple of weeks

    This board hypes fighters to the moon. Usyk deserves a lot of credit for his run at Cruiser. But he's a question mark at HW. I'm not impressed. I'm not writing him off either as he's shown good things.

    That's not me picking Usyk over Ali just pointing out performances by ATG that would get the fighter crucified on these boards now.

    The Norton trilogy alone would make for 100 threads.

    Not saying that Usyk beats Ali, but Ali fights absolutely nothing like Chisora and is smaller.

    To say that Usyk wouldn't have beaten Ali is not a bad statement. But to say that he wouldn't have beaten Ali BECAUSE he struggled a bit with Chisora is bad logic if you ask me.

    It'd be like saying Evander Holyfield would lose to Jack Dempsey because he lost to Lennox Lewis.

    Ali got dropped by a man inferior to Usyk. Not to mention Chisora is much larger. Time to use that decrepit noggin of yours pal.

    AJ fights nothing like Usyk's stylistic mismatch Chisora. So Abso-****ing-lutely.

    This thread is the equivalent of someone starting a thread after Floyd struggled with Maidana, saying.... "derp, does anyone think Floyd will beat Marquez now!".... derp.

    What's wrong with all of your heads? I thought you were supposed to know this sport?
