    Speaking of today’s date, 6th December. Anyone noticed that the date, the 6th day of the 12th month of the 18th year(of the century) reads 06/12/18 which if you take the difference between each number reads 666. Spooky! :yikes:

    Oh, great Ko by Martin btw.

    I don't think so, he lost previously to Jimmy Ellis who would go on to win the WBA tournament, and Ellis got pounded by Frazier. Both would have beaten Martin as well as Quarry and Buster Mathis, maybe even George Chuvalo.

    It’s not spooky to me because I believe that 666 refers to the Roman Emperor and has nothing at all to do with anyone today.

    A motherless child set to working on the farm
    And they never could be sure about the day he died
    The bear was the king they cast aside

    Beware the bear's in town
    Somebody's money says the bear's going down
    Yeah, the bear never smiles
    Sonny's going down for miles and miles
    Sonny's going down for miles and miles

    Some day they're gonna write a
    Blues for fighters.
    It'll just be for
    Slow guitar, soft trumpet and a bell

    Liston is one if the more fascinating fighters. Love watching film of him fight. If anyone is looking for a good read, there is a book called the Devil and Sonny Liston that is amazing.
