    You’re mistaken to say the least.

    It's a major red flag when a supposedly new poster is very hostile and gets into heated debates with veteran members. Especially when it seems like they've known them for a while.

    I was referring to your statement that that Serbian didn’t like Marciano. He was a diehard Marciano fan.

    The sad part is that he actually made good points.

    He just isn't mature enough to express them without insulting people who disagree with him.

    He dug up this old thread and then just started attacking me out of nowhere.

    Hopefully he smoothens out. I’ve been there before, albeit not to that extent.

    And you definitely shouldn’t feel the need to respond to an argument where you’re being insulted.

    I think what Louis showed was that if he'd been in his prime around the age of 28 he would have schooled Rocky,,and badly.

    For him to look that good at that age with so much wear and tear with an injured left hand and for the most part, only throwing jabs for 75% of each round is very revealing. Especially because he was so gunshy and slow compared to his younger self who was known for blistering combinations.

    This would be like if the Ali of the Berbick fight outboxed a prime Mike Tyson for a few rounds before being stopped. It would be crazy.

    In his prime he would have put on a clinic with or without a knockdown.

    No bias from me but Magoo makes a valid and sensible observation and one that chimes with my own , comparing Lyle and Rocky in any criteria is nonsensical, if I may be so bold, but I value everyone's insights and opinions and defend your right to air them. keep well.

    Possibly. But I weirdly think this one believes himself. No hint of humour just misplaced undeserved ego.
