    Mayorga - de la Hoya, Trinidad, Moseley. Ricardo really was a tit and it was an absolute joy watching Oscar smack him around. Drink that, b***h.

    We had a guy over here in the UK - Asian, and I say that to help identify him as I wouldn't wish to infer that his race had any part in the pleasure I got from what happened - who entered the ring doing some weird dance with a big chain on. Absolutely poleaxed in the first. My god, he was crap. But I would say that it took some guts getting in the ring and drawing so much attention to yourself when you know you're that crap.

    Anthony Hembrick v Booker T. Word, end of story. Synchronized dance brought to another level. Don't know how Hembrick showed his face in the gym after that.

    Not sure if this qualifies since its apparent the challenger is not a boxer but he sure has to be cocky as hell to follow through with such a foolish challenge.

    To be honest I'm not sure if its real but it has over 16 million views so it must be real... right?

    Trinidad told me that Mayorga is really a humble and quiet guy. He said Don King always made him say outlandish stuff to sell fights. He said Mayorga is a good guy. Sadly, Mayorga is struggling now.

    My guess is that you're referring to Uzman Ahmed and this fight, Eddie -

    Sonny Liston broke his jaw while laughing at Marty Marshall during their first encounter, also getting knocked down and losing the fight alongside that.

    That's a shame if so, and no reason not to believe Felix. Not surprised he's struggling, inviting head shots like that.

    Okay. I'll go with Gonzalez and Hembrick, then.

    Was going to go for Starling-Honeyghan, but it was Marlon who was acting the dick leading up to that fight.
