    I really hope that you have a folder on your PC called "forbidden knowledge". And inside it is footage of Greb vs Walker, Langford vs Walcott, and Robinson vs Gavalin

    Robinson Vs Gavilan does exist. The Cuban government have it, as Tyson has seen it.

    It's a bit of a myth. There are articles saying it wasn't filmed, but apparently Tyson has stated he has watched the film, from Jacobs fight film collection which was sold to ESPN, who have barely released the footage they own. Either way, we're not gonna see it unfortunately.

    Tunney showing really nice movement and angles without missing a beat landing those combos. Great fighter he was.

    Who knew that an old-timer like Tunney was capable of such ferocious and accurate arm punching against a defenseless opponent?

    2nd uppercut rt hand sequence weren't arm punches. Not everything can be a ballsass power punch. Glass half full or half empty. Cant please everybody.

    Carpentier was such a tough man. Just wouldn't go down, and if he did, he'd rarely stay down.

    It was amazing he survived the 10th round.
