Yes, I saw him fight at MGM in Las Vegas.

Skilled, quick, as was Mayweather.

Those two guys did catch my eye but the heavyweight division did not, post-Tyson.

Klitschko was an animal in his prime.

And of course Roy Jones Jr, though not a true heavy weight.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

Tyson was a freak



If by "freak" you mean "unusally gifted," then yes, he was a freak, as was Ali and to a degree Sonny Liston.

I once followed the sweet science very closely; pre-UFC they were pretty much the only game in town.

This millenium, however, the divisions are lack luster, the fighters no longer compelling.

I miss Hearns, Hagler, Leonard, Tyson et al ...

Oh well, nostalgia ain't what it used to be.

All persons reading my posts gamble at their own risk, as I do. I don't ordinarily dispute math. I may dispute math I don't understand, or if I think it's faulty. I am not a conspiracy theorist.

Marciano was incredible too. There may just be current incredible boxers in different weight divisions. I didn't watch yesterday night's heavyweight bout, but from the blog record, it appeared to be a very good fight.

For the record, yesterday night's heavyweight bout could be summarised thus:

Fury got knocked down once or twice in the early rounds. Wilder got knocked down twice in the later rounds. The second time, Wilder was knocked down for good.

Winner: Fury by KO, in 11 of 12 rounds.
