    I'm not sure if EVER fight exists but about 4-5 years ago l ordered a 4 disk collection of his fights from England. I think the fights were just compiled by the guy l bought them from.

    No need-- I already ordered some lessons on ebay (I just hope it's not a scam). I'm going to be gone for a little while, so happy holidays, everyone. I know that I can be too argumentative but I enjoy all the boxing banter with such knowledgable (and semi-knowledgable) posters!

    Merry xmas.

    I know sometimes we have heated debates and some times I do troll *jersey joe cough cough jimmy young cough cough* but I really do love talking boxing history.

    It's something not to be taken for granted because I know outside if the Internet I know only one person I can discuss boxing with on any serious level so thank you all for engaging me in debates and educating me about the history of the sport.

    Merry xmas classic!

    Merry Christmas Classic Forum, I love reading the debates here, some get really stupid as we all know but we all have the responsibility to just "skip" those if we are not in the mood, between the stupid stuff there are lots of good posts that show every side of the coin to help us choose which we feel is best on the subject of boxing.

    You honestly have no clue what you're talking about, and this is coming from a seasoned and versed Ronaldo hater. Let's examine some things you said....

    First, Messi is the best passer in the world.... We have a resounding NO to that. He's not even the best passer on his team, that distinction belongs to Iniesta. When Xavi was there, he was the third best passer on his team.

    Second, best dribbler in the world, again this couldn't be further from the truth. The soccer term that you're actually looking for here in Messi's case, is ball CONTROL. He has some of, if not the best control in the world, and he's the best at making sharp agile cuts at full speed in the world. However, when you say dribbling, you're more talking about tricks with the ball and beating you guys using said dribbling. Messi is no where near the best at that. Ronaldo literally SMASHES Messi when it comes to dribbling. I'll be posting a Ronaldo highlight video showcasing this.

    Third, best finisher in the world.... Nah, I wouldn't say he's that at all. He's an excellent finisher, one might even say elite, but he's not the best. I would cite Ibra, Lewandowski and Suarez as clear better finishers. I hate to say it, but I'd even favor Ronaldo when it comes to finishing. Finishing isn't just bursting through the box and sliding the ball into the net. It means EVERYTHING in relation to scoring goals. Ronaldo is the CLEAR better shooter from distance. He's clearly better in the air using his head. He's better at penalties and free kicks, which again, I'll be illustrating. So those areas listed above Ronaldo is better at when it comes to finishing.

    Lastly, I'm a confirmed Ronaldo hater, but we need to give the man the credit he's due. He's a fantastic and dribbling and ball control. You claim his free kicks are overrated... this again... is simply not true. He's amazing a free kicks. Both things you claim he's mediocre at, he's better than Messi at. That said, I still believe Messi to be the better player overall and teammate, but I simply needed to correct some of what you say. Which pains me, being a Barcelona fan and all

    Granted nothing can compare to the best dribbler in history.. Ronaldinho
