    Just seen it. Have never seen a British fighter wearing American colours. He means it as well. Always speaking highly of the U.S and says he wants to live there.

    I actually enjoyed it, although the commentators hyped it up so much that i was actually expecting a bit more

    Nothing special at all.

    This is how you make an entrance after 1,400 days.

    That was very good, I remember watching and being very impressed at the time.

    Honestly, I found that embarrassing. Paying other heavyweights to say how special he was. Or maybe the volunteered, Idk. I really hope so.

    I'm sure Vitali didn't need to pay and beg them to be on his 2 minute entrance video.

    He had a good relationship with Lewis outside the ring and I'm sure it was more along the lines of ''Do you mind helping me out with my ring entrance, for my return, it would be a honor seeing you guys featured in it'' rather than ''Hey Mike, come on, please. How much money do you want?''

    The crowd reception was as explosive as the diarrhea that I have been experiencing for the last few days.

    I thought it was great. I hope he becomes a big draw here.

    Well Foreman does a dunt of charity work. But he's not known for turning out for free. Lewis is definitely not known for turning out for free. He got an appearance fee for appearing as an alternate at the poker :lol:

    But i'd actually forgotten Joe Frazier was in it. That's a dead giveaway i'm afraid. Joe asked for dollars for autographs from children. They were paid to do those lines.

    If that's true, then you're probably right.

    When did Joe do this?

    Ask for autograph money? Not while he was the champ; much later. Liston did this while he was the champion. Or his people did.

    Though you would think all of them wouldn't mind appearing on a video with no cost, considering there was gain for publicity putting their faces be back in the spotlight in front of a wider audience
