    Sugar Ray Robinson administered some of his worst beatings at home, and not in the ring.

    Favorite HW to watch today=Wilder.
    Wilder you could have taken the AJ fight, but U were just as guilty. Now look at U. U let a fat chaloopa get the belts. Don't look at Hearn or your team. Look in the mirror.

    Pacquaio. The most exciting fighter I've seen reel time next to Tyson. But I can't call U an all time great by winning one title per weight division. If everyone else is compared to unification, then U should too. Best of this era? One of the best indeed. Not close to ATG

    Floyd Mayweather. The most technical fighter, maybe ever. But to retire when Paul Williams called U out? To fight exclusively where U can inject your hands? Playing the ghetto card, but won't let poor people watch U fight cause U're a boxing extortionist.

    JMM is a crybaby when he loses.

    GGG should fighter better fighters

    Pac should keep Mayweather out of his mouth and retire

    DLH, be a better promoter and stay out of the kitchen

    Ortiz wasted his best years as a pro on a drug suspension.

    Fury is a pillowfist.

    “windmill” Wilder is an apt nickname, although the extent to which it is is often over-exaggerated.

    Carlos Monzon was a violent maniac.

    “Prime” Mike Tyson is grossly overrated

    George Foreman naming all of his kids George is one of the most ridiculous and idiotic things I’ve ever heard.

    Thomas Hearns. He was a great fighter with great speed and jab and sharpness, and his lack or patience and carelessness brought on by this lack of patience was his biggest weakness. Walking in against great fighters or even mediocre like Barkley- not expecting to be countered or hit just to land your own punches to me was his biggest flaw. And he paid for it and it affected his legacy. He is to blame for his legacy not being what it could have been. It is a great legacy but less than it could have been. Many fighters don't have that choice and would lose to some guys no matter what. I think Tommy had the ability to win at times when he lost had he chosen to be content with winning the fight with discipline and patience. I love his fights, but part of me always thinks he has no one to blame but himself for losing to Ray and Marvin when it mattered. If his opponent wanted to find his biggest flaw it was to wait until he started to land and try to land between his combinations. Not many guys did, but that would be the plan. Not winning with a jab. That would not work. Or boxing. That would not work. It is to utilize Tommy flaw to their advantage and his need to go for broke and to counter and then put him on the defensive. Don't get me wrong. I think he is one of the greatest ever, but this post is about say something bad or negative. He didn't just start to brawl with Hagler when things go tough. He started to brawl right off going for the knockout which led to him breaking his hand. To me that was one of the greatest fights ever, yet on Tommy's part one of the worst tactics to go into a fight against a more natural middleweight who had a great chin. Which is why I always say if Tommy fought anyone in history the way he fought Hill using his jab and landing his punches off the jab but not being careless. He could beat anyone.

    Hearns was still one of the greatest fighters of all time.

    Morrison wasn`t a top fighter at all, too easy to hit.

    Dave Allen, you’ve over achieved at prize fighting relative to your skill level, and were beginning to believe your own hype before the Price demolition.

    Thankfully you pulled out of your next scheduled fight because your boxing career has run its course and nobody wants to see you in area level battles for social media ****s and giggles!
