    He's still going ... Next week he'll have a new one ... I hope he one day publicly and openly admits he lost to Fury ... Past greats like Foreman admitted losing career definining fights ... It happens

    Regarding Henry Ive never heard the one about " the sun got in my eyes" & Johannson but he was right about the split glove with Clay (Ali). Had that punch happened a few seconds earlier Henry would have KO'd him.
    He was right about the Bugner fight too If you watch it you'll see Henry turn to Harry Gibbs fo him to raise his hand Gibbs turned away & raised Bugner's that was a blatant robbery. Henry totally finished with boxing over that & Gibbs deserved to not be spoken to

    I've watched that Cooper-Bugner fight quite a few times. It was very.....very close. Could easily have gone either way thus hardly being the stuff of which controversies are made of. Henry should have taken it on the chin - no pun intended !

    Greb had some pretty salty comments about his losses to Tunney. I think the nicest he got was he actually acknowledged that Tunney got the judge's decision once...something uncharitable like that.

    Zarate had actually been given assurances he would be fighting Pintor again and was training for a rematch. Pintor crashed his motorcycle so Zarate stopped training. Even prior to that fight he was on the outs. He’d had a managerial split, could barely make 118 any more and had lost motivation even before the Pintor robbery. Then his life went into a very dark place.

    I think the angle that it was that decision that prompted him to retire is a little overblown. Though I’m sure it’s part of the politics he stopped caring for in boxing.

    Jack Johnson. Talked about throwing the Willard fight for decades.

    Wilder. Obviously.

    Fighters complain when they lose a decision in a fight they thought they won. That in and of itself doesn't make them "salty ". Not coming to grips with reality or not giving the other guy his due is salty. Lomo is being extra salty on his loss to Lopez. Way more NACL in his mouth lately.

    Wilder will be #1. I’ve never seen so many absurd excuses and so much finger pointing regarding a loss where he just lost every way possible and looked like he didn’t want to be in there or didn’t belong to be in there.

    Bernardo Caraballo is one too. Claims the scales were rigged when he fought Jofre. Yeah, Colombian promoters invested in a Caraballo win would do that, right. Says the rigged scales weakened him and that he was winning the fight then just got tired. I’ve got the whole fight and he was totally outclassed.

    Caraballo also perpetrates a myth he was robbed blind in Japan vs. Harada. At the time he accepted the decision but now he runs the story of that hard done foreign fighter robbed in a far away land. Says he won easy. Like he doesn’t know the fight is available for all to see on YouTube.

    I wouldn't say Lennox Lewis is salty but he still clamors for that fan popularity that Tyson and Holyfield still get.

    His inability to concede that Tyson was shot or at least well past it in his interview with Rogan was odd. Tyson obviously still felt like a genuine threat to Lewis when he was in the ring with him, but surely he can read a career arc like the rest of us and know that that Tyson was a one or two round threat...something different to the younger version who could work over a distance.

    Why did Harry Gibbs duck away from Henry & hold up Bugners hand when the majority of fans thought Henry won fairly easy. So did I
