    I've got Witherspoon stopping Ezzard late here after being behind on the scorecards. Thoughts?

    I think Charles might outfinesse him over 12.

    BIG TITTY TIM, ONE OF THE FOUNDING MEMBERS OF THE GREG PAGE SCHOOL OF SLOVENLY WANTON EXCESS AND RAMPANT LACK OF SELF RESPECT, COULDN'T BEAT ONE SIDE ON SNOOKS ON THE BEST DAY HE EVER SAW. WITHERSPOON IS THE FACE OF LAZY LAYABOUTS FILLING THEIR FACES WITH HO HOS AND DING DONGS INSTEAD OF TRAINING.
    AND WHAT IS EVEN SADDER ARE THE POSTERS WHO KEEP DREDGING UP WITHERSPOON, PAGE AND TUBBS FOR FANTASY FIFHTS. IF THESE GUYS ARE YOUR GENERATIONS REPRESENTATIVES AND HERO, MAYBE A ROUND TO THE BRAIN WOULD NOT BE IN VAIN.

    Is it possible we can match the under 220lbs Witherspoon who, with just 15 fights under his belt gave Larry Holmes a very uncomfortable evening,losing by a very close and debateable decision ,with Charles?
    I'm under the impression that, unless otherwise stated, we are matching prime for prime?
    Of course we could match the Charles who was tossed out for stalling against **** Richardson with a primeTim ,but that would be as pointless as your comparable matchup wouldn't it?

    ps What's with the headlines? Is there something wrong with your eyes?

    NO YOU CANNOT. BTW I HAD HOLMES WINNING 9-3 AND COMPLETELY SHUTTING DOWN BIG TITTY'S OFFENSE IN THE 9TH WITH 1 RIGHT HAND.
    YES! I DO READ IT BETTER. BIG AND IN SENSOROUND COLOR. I DO THIS ALL OFF A LITTLE PHONE AND MY EYES AIN'T ALL THAT ANY MORE. I WISH YOU ALL WOULD DO IT. IT WOULD BE EASIER FOR ME TO SEE ON THIS MINI-SCREEN.

    God dammit Morlocks LOOK AT YOU, TOUCHING THE BREED OF GERRY COONEY!

    Thats the reason you left Mor in the first place, isn´t it? Sore inside, mortified and broken, inapt, interpersonally half-arsed to cope with the rejection of Mrs.Cooney. Skulking into Georges machine, setting the instrument on 81, and looking FOR RAGE on the Eloi-Beautys grand grand grand grand......father!
    Uh, and the font of 2020 cultured humanity is too tiny for Mr. CaveEye, surprise lol. I´d bet on FAT BRIGHT GREEN too, goggling through a regressed pair of shiney red gawkers. Oh man getting off the console booze might help as well....
    ITS NOT GERRYS FAULT GET OVER IT!

    Best of Witherspoon, as mcvey mentioned could be that version that pushed an ATG to the edge. So that spoon against best of Charles, at Heavyweight of course, I'll say Witherspoon by split decision.

    That's a reasonable outcome, though it could happen as early as round 4 or 5, IMHO.
