So if Tank is special why he's fighting B and C level fighters all the time?

    Charles Martin just read this and asked someone to hold his drink

    Plenty are, thats a fact

    Stiverne, Martin, Wilder, god the list is a long one

    Add all the "regular" belt holders and you have an ocean of mediocrity

    That was a bit harsh on Gatti he just was not in Floyd’s league that night. In fact that was Pretty Boy Floyd at his very best. He really ****ed up Gatti. He looked as good as Sugar Ray Robinson that night maybe better. Even Charley Burley could not have done it better.

    I know you hate it but Bro it’s the reality of boxing and has always been the case. They cross the streets when economics dictates to maximise value otherwise they don’t which is why Tim Bradley got to fight Pacquiao 3 times but never fought Floyd and why got to fight Floyd and later Broner, Thurman and now about to face Spence. It is what it is.

    I don’t think they are crap just because they are not elite. I respect boxing and boxers more than that. Not everyone can be A* elite.

    Of course it’s greed. It’s business. Always been the way which is why it’s called prize fighting. Surprised you are shocked.

    And I also remember Gatti getting inducted into the HOF, so he was indeed not a C class fighter but a HOF level one.

    Doesn’t matter what it was. There are lower tier fighters who become champions. Baldomir was another one.

    And? Not sure what your point is. The point here is that yes, B and C level fighters do become champions. But with 236,567 belts per division it’s to be expected.

    Baldomir beat people who were ranked as elite to take the title like Zab “Super” Judah so he could not have been as bad as you think.

    You are pathetic. Baldomir was a cherry pick gone wrong. He was brought in to allow Zab to look great just before the Floyd fight. Fcukin noob...
