    The bodybuilder. Former fan of his. I've seen the light. He is trash. In the boxing ring but also outside of it

    Yeah was given a gift decision because he was the man. Happens in boxing, don't you know?

    David Haye was hyped through the roof back in the day.
    Broner of course, even when he had already received 2 blatant gift decisions.

    I found this old thread that had the video. He got laid out by Cooper.

    Mark Breland considering how good of an Amateur he was, he still was a solid professional. But never came close to living up the hype.

    Malignaggi did not do enough in that fight for anyone to be pointing to it as a robbery. Anyways they were both multi weight Titleist more or less equals in my mind so no shame to either of them

    It's an epic clip.

    I'm not sure Savage wouldn't be in the bottom end of my "Old Guys and Newbies" sparring class in the park I went to this morning.

    Taking on an even over-the-hill Bert Cooper was a grandiose leap of faith in himself that showed marginal self-awareness.

    Ignoring the fact that Andy Ruiz already beat AJ while usyk was still a cruiserweight is the only way this can be considered clever

    Broner.

    Such a sweet victory when Maidana destroyed him.

    Jeff Lacy. My man Joe slapped him up at a time where the Americans were really over-hyping their own and were convinced Lacy was going to walk through Joe. Quite the opposite played out and Joe made him look silly with a 12 round beat down. Lacy was never the same
