    I could just do a jumble!

    And I spent a good half of my lunch break addressing, or more accurately undressing, Mendoza's post. So I'm gonna sit out from now. I kicked ass anyway.

    Robinson and LaMotta went at it 6 times even tho Jake won only once. Sometimes a dead horse needs a flogging.

    Whitaker getting an enormous amount of mentions in IQ.

    What fights did he put forth brilliant game plans that made a difference? How often did he have to vary his enormously successful natural style? What fights did he go outside of his normal game in? Was he really in the class of guys like Archie Moore and co strictly based on ring IQ?

    Inquiring minds want to know. Whitaker is one of the greatest ever but i'm not totally sold on his IQ vs others. His natural talent and base style were immense.

    Speed- Roy Jones
    Power- Foreman
    Sig punch- Louis combos
    iQ- Archie Moore
