    Pac Morales 3
    I liked Pac but loved Morales and to see that subtle, but undeniable, shaking of his head broke my heart. Especially thinking that with the series tied at 1 apiece the third fight might be competitive.

    Well the California Department of Justice lab confirmed it so I don't know how you can say he found nothing. He had 63% KO ratio until he fought Mosley and including that fight, and had zero KO's after that.

    They confirmed nothing only that it was a soft used pad with trace elements of sulphur & calcium discovered when using microscopic testing
    The amounts found were comparable to those found in HUMAN SWEAT.
    Margarito was banned BEFORE any hearing took place & before any tests were done

    I'm not trying to start an argument or anything but how do you explain him KO'in 2/3 rds of the guys he fought, then suddenly after being forced to re-wrap his hands in the Mosley fight is unable to finish even a D level opponent?

    Ali losing to Holmes. I was 11 years old. Cruel way to start off as a boxing fan, looking at Ali in the corner looking beat up & defeated.

    RJJ losing in the Olympics- I literally felt he would not turn pro because of that farce decision.

    Taylor -JCC. I try not to loathe Richard Steele, but I fail.

    DLH-Trinidad. I bet on Tito, but by the 10th round started feeling like DLH was blowing it after 8 clinical rounds. Only fight I won a bet and felt like i should have lost. Felt bad that DLH followed his corner & ran for the final 3 rounds. DLH blew it & he knew it.

    Tyson Douglas. Didn't know it happened until the next day the newspaper headlines "It's True" Mike on the canvas looking for his mouthpiece. Literally told the job I felt sick...they sent me to the company nurse thinking I was faking. Nurse said he's running a fever. They sent me home, I laid down, didn't eat, drink, didn't even fire up a joint.

    Bojado vs Forbes. Not sure what happened, but Steve Forbes gave the performance of a lifetime & Bojado wouldn't fight again. I could see he was gutted & that in turn gutted me. Really good boxer, don't know what happened.

    Funny how a celebrity/athlete we don't know can have such an emotional impact on us.

    Didn´t bother me, but I´m guessing a lot of UK fans didn´t like how Barrera schooled Hamed. Thought I´d just open up that old wound..

    Another one for me is DLH-Sturm. This is the great robbery that no one cared about. DLH was DLH and Sturm was a relatively unknown German boxer. Is there anyone on the planet who honestly believes Oscar won this fight?

    Since you reopened it, let me pour some salt on it!

    , testing by the California State Department of Justice has confirmed that there was indeed plaster of paris in Antonio Margarito's wraps.

    The hand wraps were removed from Margarito's fists shortly before his Jan. 24 title fight against Mosley when Mosley's trainer, Nazim Richardson, objected to their use. The hardened gauze pads, which had been inserted inside the hand wraps near Margarito's knuckles, were seized by the California State Athletic Commission, which sanctions and oversees boxing in the state.

    Tyson v Holyfield 1 - Tyson was back, on his way to wrecking the division again, the second coming! Nope. I was mentally effected by that for a while, then the rematch....

    Recent one would be Joshua Wlad. Joshua should have lost to my man WK before Ruiz did the deed, just a bit too long in the tooth to get it done.
