Maurice Harrice is NOT “teak tough.” Be clear about this…
Harris was stopped by Fres Oquendo, Ty Fields, Derrick Jefferson, Henry Akinwande, and Tony Thompson.
I like Mansour… Maybe he’s not bombing people out because he doesn’t want to scare off the top contenders and needs to get rounds in — but his age does handicap him.. He can’t wait.. At age 41 he has to get top fights right away.
He’ll have a hard time getting top contenders to fight him, because losing to him wouldn’t be cool.Posted August 25, 2013 3:08 pm

@ Vlad the impaler, who has stopped Guinn though?Posted August 24, 2013 12:23 pm
At least it seems Harris made some attempt to win, Mansour’s last opponent Jason Gavern just seemed to want the fight to end in the 1st rd. Not a bad win for Mansour but it looks highly unlikely that he’ll ever be ready to beat any of the top contenders.Posted August 24, 2013 11:02 am

Tony Thompson KOed Harris in the 3rd round. Big deal. Amir Mansour is going nowhere in the heavyweight division. As he steps up his comp, he is struggling. He even fought Guinn to the distance. Eventually this guy will start to lose some decisions to gate keepers. Anyone know what this dirtbag was incarcerated for?Posted August 24, 2013 10:35 am
Not a great fight, Harris is largely washed up, and was never a top level fighter even at his peak, so Mansour labouring to beat him doesnt auger well for his chances against anyone in the top 20…throw him in with Chisora.Posted August 24, 2013 9:19 am
The title just embarrasses the sport, if Mansour can make a living with this title then good luck to him, but he should remember all the big names and REAL HW Champions would beat him.This title plus any other made up alphabet title is demeaning the sport and the people to blame are Promoters, TV Companies as they always want a title fight on TV, and alphabet commissions, Oh by the way I am the HW Champion in my own house maybe I should warrant a diamond encrusted belt as well.I only want 2 commissions WBA and IBF and nothing to do with jose The Terrorist Sulaimen.Posted August 24, 2013 8:27 am
