    Ig we can all agree that Lyle took a knockdown better than Bowe.

    Bert Cooper never beat any world class fighters. He beat some good cruiserweights and Joe Hipp, but that was it. Lyle beat several good fighters no matter how past their prime they were: Mathis, Bugner, Bonavena, Ellis, Shavers, and Bugner.

    @catchwtboxing although ur not my favorite poster and we've kind of come to a head before, I would have to say in defense against others, you are not such a bad guy most of the time

    This article was written by a clueless chump.
    Bowe wins every single time, most likely by UD, but I wouldn't rule out the KO either.

    He's a boxing expert like Burt Sugar. How many articles have you wrote?

    I went with Bowe by TKO. Ten count knockouts aren’t that common in fights like these and I don’t see it going to the cards either. This would be an inside battle where Riddick excelled and had the size, power and chin as the edge. Lyle would be tough and game. He’d land a lot of big shots through Bowe’s porous defense. But in the end I see him getting battered to submission.

    Bowe TKO 10

    Well that explains it then. These so called "boxing experts" are clueless about boxing.
    Bert Sugar was quite charismatic, but he used to

    onsense for most of the time. He was a nostalgic about some old timers and very subjective.
    At his absolute best, Bowe is probably among the top 5 best HWs ever.

    To be honest, I don't care what anyone thinks or says about me, but thanks, and I have nothing against you. Very few posters I don't like on a consistent basis.

    Ya, everybody's got problems I tell myself. One day I'll talk to a guy who's pretty nice, two weeks later he'll be super rude. It's just life, hit and miss i suppose. I know I have had a few rude moments myself, but I think I'm doing pretty good these days.

    Those of us who saw sketches of Barbados “Boston” Tom McMustache — the one from west of East Philly — have learned not to be impressed by these minor league ‘staches.

    I've changed my avatar again, removing the one of me holding the program of the Minter v Antuofermo fight which I posted the day after you called me a liar and said I wasn't there.The one you didn't comment on.
