Re: Gene Fullmer: Is He the Last Great All-time White American Boxer?

Is he the Last White American pound per pound all-time great boxer? It's a good question. For me it has to be a solid NO . I haven't read all of the thread, I only skimmed... But Joey G was mentioned, I think that is a fair shout. Off the top of my head - the first name that came to mind was Tommy ...

Re: Joshua on the mic

And no one needs to feel bad for Usyk. He hadn’t a clue what Josh was ranting about anyway, he’s king of the world, and one of the best days of his life no doubt. Usyk's English may not be the best, but I'm sure that he got the gist of it. AJ being a bad loser and talking about having a weekend sti...

Re: Joshua on the mic

Some people are just best kept away from microphones altogether. Certainly if that's the way that boxing has him mentally and emotionally, he might be better off just walking away. He's achieved a hell of a lot over the past decade and he'll never be skint... But undoubtedly the man is struggling t...

Re: Joshua on the mic

3. Telling Usyk that he has skills and that Usyk is not stronger than him, then questioning the man's victory, then walking away and not giving the man a chance to speak to him and reason with him. Regarding 3, I thought that was odd and having heard it a few times I think we missed Usyk off camera...

Re: Joshua on the mic

However none of us know what it's like to be him at that level and all eyes on you. The stress and disappointed must have been immense. Plus as others said he might've been slightly concussed. On the mic he praised Usyk but maybe not the time to do it but I wouldn't kick him when he is down as it w...

Re: Joshua on the mic

AJ did himself no favours whatsoever. He was completely all over the place emotionally and the true AJ came out. He showed more than a little amount of arrogance and ignorance... And I would make 5 quick points on it: 1. Becoming aggressive and wanting to confront Usyk before Chisora and others held...

Re: Bigger fight in 2022 - Eubank Jr vs Been or Khan vs Brook.

Khan / Brook for me...

People forget how massive that fight was going into it, people were talking about having 2 fights, or even a 3=fight series depending on how they played out...
But because of how one sided the bout was, it takes the shine off it.

Re: Joe Joyce vs. Joseph Parker | BT PPV - 24 September 2022

I picked Parker by decision. Surprised the poll isn't closer... Parker is a big rough old boy, he's a good fighter and he can take the big shots, because he's went the distance with Ruiz, AJ, Whyte and Chisora (x2)... And he has the experience of swimming in the deep water with the sharks... More th...

BUT - he was not this invincible beast that Ali fans make him out to be....
