Re: Ali in his prime: 4 guys that SURELY would've beaten him

Ali would have swept the trilogy with Norton if he had gotten up on his toes and boxed like he did in several rds, instead he spent too much time laying on the ropes. When he chose to box, Norton had no answer. 60's Clay would have won a comfortable decision from Holy, too fast and too much movemen...

Re: Nikolai Valuev vs Eddie Chambers

Chambers wins on every fans card and loses on the judges cards. Funny how Valuev with no real fan support got the nod in so many fights he should of lost Valuev was a circus tallman, a cash cow for his promoters, since the casual German crowd seemed happy to watch such freak "fighting" in...

Re: Nino Benvenutti versus Sugar Ray Leonard

Re: Who ranks higher historically - Tim Witherspoon or Vitali Klitschko?

Vitali established quite a lead in the poll, 18-6. Fair enough.

Re: Ali in his prime: 4 guys that SURELY would've beaten him

Holyfield is a terrible matchup for Ali, he was relentless like Frazier, only faster, more technical and versatile.

Re: Golovkin Vacates IBF Middleweight Belt

Golovkin finally decided to abandon fighting the lesser opposition and to cashout before the retirement. Good idea. Although the other current 'champions' wouldn't want a part of the oldman, while he looks credible enough.

Re: Eddie Chambers set to make ring return on Monday

Chambers had a good career as a contennder. He gave a tough fight to Povetkin, outclassed Sam Peter and nicely exposed Dimitrenko. Eddie indeed had decent handspeed, possessed a good high guard, although lacked footwork and stamina. In his prime he would have been a nice addition to the current scen...

Re: Classic fights I've watched recently

Sam Langford vs Jim Flynn III Flynn was desperately trying to hold the smaller Langford from the start, to put weight on him and to make him tired. Flynn did too little work in the clinch, relied more on wrestling than fighting. Langford wasn't frustrated much by being out of his punching range and ...

Re: Anthony Joshua vs. Jermaine Franklin | DAZN - April 1, 2023

Re: Gervonta Davis vs. Ryan Garcia - Spring 2023

A rematch clause for the vacant belt sound awful. Anyway, Davis gotta KO Garcia, who isn't sound enough defensively and throws his amazing speed combos with his chin opened wide.

Whyte won that. Did more and finished strong. However, after such lackluster bout neither deserved a fight against the cash cow like Joshua.

Re: Beterbiev ... Is the book out on him ?

He’s like a Terminator. Just keeps going till the job’s done. Hard as well, Yarde cracked him a few and he kept coming. Educated pressure too, nothing wild about him.

He definitely lost his claim for the p4p #1 title after the Bivol loss. Now the most appropriate canidates are Inoue, Crawford and Usyk.
