McCall fought till he was 54! Crazy
Yeah but Holmes was 137 years old. I asked Frank Sinatra.
What the hell does it matter? McCall lost to career cruisers Orlin Norris and Juan Carlos Gomez, as well as someone named Joey Christjohn, and I have no problem admitting that is boxrec knowledge because I have no idea who that is.
Usyk is by far the better man, here.
Usky could never in a million years beat Lewis
So does Trevor Berbick. It doesn't say much though.
Usyk has only had 3 fights at heavyweight.
I am a Lewis fan and I find this delusional. Usyk's southpaw stance and ability to throw 80 punches a round when he feels like it guarantee that he has a shot to beat anybody.
Not saying that he WOULD beat Lewis...Lewis was great...but saying that in a million years he couldn't is absurd, especially since there is no data on how Lewis would handle a southpaw.
By the way, McCall didn't really beat Lewis. Lewis was up at 4 and the ref stopped it, probably because Don King told him to do so. I was watching on HBO, and was horrified, along with the announcers.
He’s a totally natural fighter like Kimbo Slice.
I saw him fight at the Orleans Casino. I was in the bathroom stall and in walks Oliver McCall with his gloves on and shirtless. One of the NSAC dudes with the red jacket was accompanying him. He had to drop McCall’s trunks so he can take a ****.
McCall is one of my favorite fighters of all time.
Did he wipe his ass too?
Hardly the best kept secret that Lewis suffered from acute FOSAS ie. Fear of Southpaws and Slickness, whereas, Usyk is literally fearless and we all know he would jump at the opportunity to do battle with the gods and the devils in venues in heaven and hell respectively if the chance presented itself to him.
And Lewis' generally struggled against fighters from the Soviet School. He lost five times to fighters from there in the ams, including by KO once, and in the pros Vitali gave him a torrid time and was rightfully ahead on most people's cards prior to it being waved off because of the cut. The way lighter and smaller Mavrovic who Lewis had almost 30lbs on gave him a very tough nights work too despite coming in a lot lighter than he usually did which obviously had something to do with his illness because weight loss was one of the main symptoms of it and he never fought again after that. Lewis let out a huge sigh of relief as the decision was being announced.
Sure he iced Golota in a round but the Pole seemed terribly anxious and word on the street is he had a lidocaine injection 90 mins before walked to the ring and wasn't right mentally at all. Already defeated before the first bell so to speak
Based on what ? Are there any statements of him being scared of Southpaws ? Chris Byrds manager paid Lewis not to fight him and Moorer ducked Lewis
Amateurs mean little in the pros. Both Bowe and Lewis lost to Jorge Luiz Gonzalez, a 6'7 well schooled Cuban, then Bowe beat the life out of him in the pros. A prime Lewis would too, as he would against all his Amateurs competition. was a completely different fighter in the pros than he was in the amateurs.
And he beat Vitali while at a career heaviest and almost 38 years old. It's a fact. Vitalis eyelid was falling off. If it kept going his career would've been ended by Lewis
Did Mavrovic win more then 2 rounds?
Revisionist history always cracks me up.
Nah man, McCall is GOAT. P4P king. Would slaughter Usyk. 100% confirmed.
