    Both Sullivan and Corbett became journalists later on in their years, and I heard that Corbett in particular had laughable takes at the time. So much so that fighters would actually look forward to seeing him pick them to lose.

    Where can we can get access to read articles from Sullivan and Corbett? Any articles in particular that you found interesting, or funny?

    I posted some of Corbett's stuff years ago. I will look it up and see if I still have it.

    Sullivan was a bit like David Haye, in the sense that he wore two hats, depending on whether he was promoting or commentating.

    When he was promoting one of his own fights he could trash talk with the best of them, and as a journalist he seems to have called it as he saw it.
