    @moneytheman12, what are your thoughts on this?

    We need your skill at extending the length of already long threads here.

    It should go without saying @moneytheman12 has no rivals when it comes to boxing knowledge in and out of the ring.

    Amen to that! That isn't even reliable with contemporary fighters, even when you can see them fighting a like opponent. If it was as good a measure as some seem to think, there would be many Millionaires on this forum, just from betting on boxing alone!

    Yep. I was definitely trolling.

    This thread has become a thread for trolling. Feel free to kick back and have some fun.

    Ah, well, joking is half the fun.

    But yeah, if you want to explain why Bowe was a much better fighter than Carnera, go ahead.

    @janitor might even be willing to address them. 'Tis the thread for such things.

    That's certainly up to you.

    Personally, I find it interesting to talk to people with different views and ideas. Everybody learns more that way. For example, I talk to you, Janitor, 70sFan, BitPlayerVesti, Glass, and White Bomber even though you all have very different ways of looking at boxing.

    Even people we disagree with are sometimes right about things. Look at you and me for example. We disagree about some stuff with Shavers, but agree about a lot with Tyson.

    EDIT: I do think you'd find it easier to talk to people if you used punctuation, but as I've said before, that's totally your choice.

    its nothing wrong with diff views but just acting blind or lying is odd to me which some of those people you named do they do it only to keep debating
    they will say stuff like this George didnt move slow his punches was fast I can say by video which shows he did they say no he didnt the video was in slow motion

    or louis was outdated the camera tech was bad they will say lies like this is why I dont tall to these people their odd

    you never will keep lying or acting blind which is why I do talk to you often

    im not into using marks or like you call punchuations it not my style nothing wrong with it just not for me
