Jack Johnson vs James Jeffries What is available on you tube shows a fight similar to Gomez-Lopez I, except it lasted to the 15th. Jeffries had he...

Re: Roberto Duran vs Greg Haugen

Duran in six. Similar to Chavez-Haugen. Talent-wise it would be Duran in one but Haugen had a heck of a heart that would see him hold on til the sixth.

Re: Mystery Boxer :Is this Jose "Pipino" Cuevas ? (1980)

It fits the mold for both. But based on what Mando wore on the SRL fight clip, Id say its Mando.

Re: James Jeffries, was he that good?

. you should read the book my buddy wrote about him: In the Ring with James Jeffries. It gives a good account based on newspaper notes about him

The only time I seen him was in his disaster against Jack Johnson, so, from a visual point of view, its hard to tell.
