    Too much mastication will make you go blind.

    There’s, I said it. :eek:

    Holyfield was dirty fighter to x degrees.

    Tyson was a dirty fighter to x degrees.

    These statements are not mutually exclusive or disjoint.

    The feeling for some (and I’m not necessarily arguing against that) seems to be that when one dirty fighter meets another dirty fighter, both doing what they do - and there will always be one to start the fouling first - they cancel each other out in that regard - therefore no cause for complaint by either party re dirty tactics at least in respect of the match in which they faced each other with both fighting dirty.

    Should have been a mutual DQ. Ref becomes the new champion by default.

    I'm a good sport. Or trying to be. How you doing bud? Any time I hear or see the word "civilized" it always reminds me of the Marvelous one!

    I think this sums everything up very neatly.

    I will respond to this comment tomorrow when I have more time. But I thank you for listing your sources and explaining in detail why you have come to this conclusion.

    Double DQ? I like it. Kill two dirty birds with one stone.

    “Mills Bee Lane III, the winner and New HW Champion of the World!”

    Before each defence, during the face off, Mills could still say “Let’s get it on!!!”

    Maybe Mills was even a touch smaller than “Tiny” Tommy Burns, so perhaps a new record there also. So many alternative possibilities to ponder.

    Thanks to yee old world wide web that we're able to watch classic 80's commercials.

    I'm doing well. A lot of solid boxing this year. Seems like the good old days when great fights took place almost weekly!!

    A bit dilly of Mike not to go with a butt for butt per the Old Testament instead of an ear for a butt.

    The New Testament according to Mike “Sure, I’ll turn the other butt cheek but I’ll still bite your ear off….”. Puns gone wild!
