    Um, Marshal, Ali and Martin had no inside game, and they defeated Liston. One broke his jaw, the other two knocked him out.

    I didn't claim anything. I used what 1% means as an example to illustrate how far off you were.
    And you took my advice and recalculated.
    I helped you correct your mistake.
    And all you done since is be a complete ass about it.

    Vitlai beat the best version of him, and took his " 0 " Arreola didn't win a round vs Vitali.

    Stiverne took Arreola the distance and lost some rounds.

    Why even attempt to compare the two?

    You the only one who " thinks " Arreola was the best Vitali beat, and I'll leave it at that.

    No, the Arroela who fought Vitali was a fat undisciplined slob who trained on tacos.
    Will I present you with those links again that say he had the "work ethic of a slug" ?

    When Arroela fought Stiverne he was in much better shape. He trained harder and was more moviated.
    Stiverne broke his nose and face in fight one and stopped him in fight two.
    The prime was beaten out of him by Stiverne who went on to get completely dominated by Wilder.

    Vitalu had a C level resume at best.

    His highest ranking win was a washed up bloated mess of Sam Peters. Lol

    Arreola is an important man for Wilder fans. ( one of his best 3 wins ) He beat Witherspoon, Kaufman, and McCline, earning a top ten ranking then got the **** beaten out him in a title shot vs Vitali who took his 0.

    Did you see this fight?

    The fact that so many of the Klitschko era leftovers are at the highest levels today and even doing well puts the lie to the people that said it was weak. Bunch of grandpas hobbling around spanking junior :rolleyes:

    Vitali Klitschko lost less than 10 rounds on scorecards in his entire career and you expect him to lose by unanimous decision to a slow footed plodder who is barely 6'?

    Liston was on another level compared to anyone Vitali fought besides Lewis imo. And head to head I pick Liston over Lewis, as well.

    Just my opinion.
