Evander gave Mike Tyson a private tour of the Pit of Misery.
Two examples of Tyson trying to break an opponent’s arm.
Against Botha he not only applies an arm bar (illegal in boxing, not MMA), he also while doing so throws a forearm and if you watch the replay part you can see he even headbutts Botha while having him locked up.
Perfect. What more can I say but Dilly Dilly!!
Open question. Who got officially pulled up the most for their infractions - Mike or Evander?
That’s not to say that officially issued warnings or points deductions (or lack thereof) are necessarily an accurate reflection of foul moves in all reality.
I could be wrong but my general perception is that, in whole career terms and perhaps in their fights specifically, Evander got away with more without due warnings or penalties.
We all know the famous Holyfield simultaneous head butt and nut punch - irrefutable double foul in my book - did Holy even get warned for either or did he ever admit to at least one intentional head butt during any of his fights?
Finally, most might agree that biting off a portion of your opponents ear is far worse than a head butt. But who exactly draws the line for the concept of “anything goes”?
Did Holyfield himself pass that line with his own repeated head butts - and is “anything goes” unevenly limited to the boundaries that Evander elected to push past himself?
Just some food for thought sans ear portions.
Where? Where? I like my Dilly Bars chocolate, I used to pay the Dilly man .10 cents for one when I was 5 years old.
Good fight. Slow mo replays confirm what most of us thought all along with Loma winning a clear but close fight.
Been waiting on Crawford-Spence for what, 5 years now? Be a miracle if that fight goes through in July.
I scored it 115-113 for Loma, he came back to dominate after a slow start.
Because he wanted to eat Holyfield's children but got hungry and fancied a little snack before the main course.
Same here. And I gave Haney all the close rounds for good measure.
I blame international communism.
