    sometimes 'cor blimey' (archaic). An abbreviation of 'God blind me' used as an interjection to express shock or surprise.

    He’d of stood Hagler on his head. And Marvin knew this.

    OMG! Hagler was one of the most skilled fighters of all time and was a southpaw, stood on his head? Hagler was a far better combo punchder than Graham and had a 75 inch reach, longer than most of Graham`s opponents, Graham benefitted from a long reach, Hagler was better at feinting and landing shots, he was a far better offensive fighter than Graham was.

    Graham ended up stacking shelves in ASDA, true story.

    And people wander why some begrudge not very good boxers like Joshua the billions he banks (all the while biting the hand that feeds him as an active racist).

    He lost three of those fights at the Olympics. The Italian beat him by miles.

    Herol was a great fighter and a defensive genius. Yes, a few got through here and there but every ones entitled to an off day. Herol has to be up there for defensive ability. I wouldn’t say Joe Calzaghe had a better defence, Joe was a better all rounder and in my opinion is one of the best fighters of any era. He stayed undefeated for a reason, not many do.
