"The peoples champion"
The damage done to Max Schmeling by Joe Louis in their rematch was akin to a head-on car collision.
Ali did beat him up, but not as bad as you say.
Compared to other beatings, it was nothing, a joke.
There were no huge broken bones, not much blood and no death.
This is a good shout
Mercer - Morrison
First Mercer's body was bombed brutally, later Tommy took terrible hits wile already hanging dazed in the ropes.
Tommy Hearns beatdown of Duran is painful for me
I watched it live, june '88 if i remember correctly . Sure, Barkley was having the odd success but was still on the shittier end of the stick and was himself being hurt to the body and cut to ribbons
