    He fought 331 fights, had 124 KO's, and fought to the age of 51! Guess who this boxer was.

    Yes. Bird fought 25+ times in some years. That's about 2 fights a week. Bird would sometimes fight 4 fights in a month. I have never seen Bird on film.

    Bird fought four 12 roudn matches in a month! I don't care if he wasn't very skilled, this man was a real " fighter ". History may never see another fighter like this.
