Bareknuckle boxing champ Joe Savage? He called them out several times?
Haha haha they probably didn't want to be charged with murder! .His fight with Bert Cooper is worth a watch! on you tube.
Neither would fight a dangerous white challenger,they drew the colour line.
Difficult to tell if this is a joke on this forum!
he was 42 and 1
As I said dangerous ,and White! His victims were also legends in their own right.
A modern day Luther McCarty
just watched him fight cooper. maybe him fighting lewis or bruno wouldnt have been the best idea
Savage actually threw that fight. Bert Cooper would only agree to fight him if he threw their first fight, then they'd fight for real in the rematch, however Cooper backed out and refused to fight him for real, and since the deal was so shady and unofficial in the first place, Savage had no other option, and it was impossible for him to get his title shot, since people all dismissed because of the dive he took.
after watching it, i have to wonder, just who were these 42 guys he beat?
Your profile pic is confusing me
This. Bert was completely crazy outside of the ring. When I used to visit family in Pittsburgh in the early 90’s I seen Bert knock a bunch of drug dealers senseles in front of liquor stores and gas stations. It’s a miracle he didn’t suffer any retaliation.
If Holyfield was his drug dealer he wouldnt have beaten up Holyfield.
I did read that he got punched out by Sonny Liston's son.
Bert is a nutter.The fight game needs nutters!
