SLIM, punch, curtley — Again: Ali made a MILLION technical errors…he wasn’t a big puncher…he had no body attack…couldn’t fight inside and he had a HORRIBLE defense…Ali got hit a lot!!! MA was beaten up by novice Leon, who only weighed 197…by Norton, who was knocked out by the 188-pound novice Jose Luis Garcia.
Foreman couldn’t box…therefore he was easy to beat for MA. He couldn’t even land a big punch on JY… He couldn’t handle a jab… jab less Morrison and Briggs out-jabbed Foreman. Tyson lacked defensive skills — just watch Tyson vs Douglas. Holyfield was out-boxed by Toney, Donald, Coward Bowe…and floored by Ruiz…

But they all would’ve “knocked the f#ckin bums” Vitali and Wlad OUT! Yeah…right….STRONZI…!

PS, Wlad crushes 70’s Ali.

Posted May 31, 2014 1:30 pm 


The Facts

Jimmy Young beat George Foreman. Foreman was floored and saved by the bell against Ron Lyle too. Ken Norton got blasted out several times by lesser all-round boxers. Norton struggled with tall punchers. Frazier was demolished x 2 by Foreman who was stopped by Ali who went life + death with Norton x 3. These are all facts. Now some opinion. The Klitschkos start at least evens in mythical fights with almost all those guys. Prime for prime, Wlad beats Frazier, Lyle, Shavers and Norton. Jerry Quarry who was basically a cruiserweight beat Lyle and Shavers. Larry Holmes might outbox Wlad. Ali at his peak in the mid to late 60’s can beat Wlad. Young Foreman might stop Wlad, or alternatively, run out of steam. Liston would quit inside the distance if he couldn’t ko Wlad early…Vitali can hang with any of them too…

ECAT.., I think you underestimate Riddick Bowe!!!Riddick Bowe had incredible power , a great , great jab , a great right hand , left hook , could fight inside and out and I’m sure he could have beaten Lennox Lewis!! Riddick a coward ? I don’t think so he wanted the Lennox Lewis fight ! But because Lennox became mandatory and was getting 45 % instead of 25 % Newman talked him out of it. By the way, he had one of the best trainer of all time, the great Eddie Futch!

SLIM — I’ve read your posts and I don’t know if I should laugh or cry…
Again you have proven your ignorance… In this age of information your lack of knowledge is a choice.

Foreman was a great puncher in his prime but he obviously NEVER LEARNED HOW TO BOX! That’s why he was easy to beat for Ali!

Don’t get me wrong, MA was a great fighter, but he was certainly not the “GREATEST.”
I mean a lousy defender — “THE GREATEST” ?! WTF?!

“Ali fought the best of the best” … please name them!
Evangelista??? Wepner??? Spinks???

Holmes, yes, he was a great fighter, a great defender…he never took a lot of punishment. And he was too good for Ali.

Posted May 31, 2014 12:19 pm

Ali danced a lot that is not the same as having good defense, he had poor peripheral vision and his reflexes were mediocre. He never met a left hook his jaw didn’t like. If he was dancing he wasn’t punching, that’s not the same as good defense. He was however a fabulous warrior and indeed one of the greatest.

… “Ali’s defense was his lightening fast footwork.”

Especially when he was against the ropes, covering up, and getting hammered. Or pulling back from blooping left hooks and getting decked, or getting his jaw busted.

You say that was when he was old??? Three of the knockdowns happened when Ali was in his 20’s. He was 29 when Frazier belabored him on the ropes.

He was fast, but not very masterful. He took a lot of incoming. Unlike Wladimir he didn’t get better with age.

Sredmond you’re an ignorant ass. Dementia is the least of your problems. You live in zu zu land.

Mayweather hadn’t beaten anyone before he beat Genero Hernandez.. He still got the opportunity.. He was still one of the best boxers in the world.. It’s not the experience or opponents who make anyone great.. It’s raw talent and how developed it is.. Lara and Porter have recently developed their abilities to a great degree.. Enough to score a major upset if they get the deserved chance.

Shawn Porter also beat Devon Alexander, who beat Floyd’s last opponent Maidana—so his destruction of the tough chinned Paulie isn’t Porter’s only great win… He’s an Undefeated World Welterweight Champion as well, so it’s not as if there’s no basis for him getting a Floyd fight.

All you’re doing is making excuses for Floyd. You’re his chief bum sucker on this site.

I’m okay with people questioning conventional wisdom. I quite fancy iconoclasm too. People need not cry like nappied baby when their heroes legacies are challenged.

I agree partially with Tark re Ali. Alis legacy is built on undoubted boxing ability and his role in historical events. In some ways he is bigger than boxing. He also lost three of the best years of his life so we imagine what if. There is a large amount of emotion behind his legacy. It has nearly become religious and beyond debate. And that is a sad thing. I also agree Holmes is hugely under rated, as foreman over rated. Of heavyweights I can’t see anyone being better than the brown bomber, and for the best ever, lil Henry seems in my eyes, unsurpassable.

Mongrelenko

SREDMOND….you still blabber about Klitschko’s not being historically this or that, and it is based on what? What a few American black dudes think. The world is a BIG place. I know you Americans don`t really understand that, but Klitschko retiring and going on to become the Mayor of Kiev is kind of a big deal given the danger the Russians pose to all who oppose them (Polonium tea anyone).

Just because it isn`t blasted on the news in the USA doesn`t mean it isn`t historically important. The US is not the centre of the world, it isn`t the biggest democracy, it soon won`t have the biggest economy, it owes China gagagzillions, it doesn`t decide everything.

So lets just be clear the Klitschkos ARE a big deal.

Again beating Paulie Malignaggi hardly qualifies you as a massive threat! Maidana legitimately upset Broner and has been a nightmare for pretty much everyone he has faced, a few of the boxers you mentioned would be hard pressed to defeat that wild Argentine fighter, we had Lara getting banged up by Angulo before turning the tide and getting gifted against Molina, he is a very good fighter that said call me when he gets by Canelo who Floyd handled with ease… Brook and Thurman are just names you are tossing about because you are bored and the creeping dementia has you scared.

Mayweather has 3 fights left with a HUGE guarantee and they have to be bankable, Brook is an unknown to US fans and Porter and Thurman are just getting started.. If Lara dominated Canelo that could be a sellable story because Alvarez did a huge fight with FMJ and is now a PPV fighter… Absent an impressive win Lara is just another name being trotted out..

Cotto was coming direct of a loss when Trout best him, a damn good win for Trout but Mayweather was the first guy to defeat Cotto at 154 and that’s NOT Floyd’s best division, he also handed Canelo his first “L” despite that not being FMJs best weight class… Tarks a moron, Mayweather had never let any of these guys beat him and now he is Trotting out Brook, Porter and Lara as “the men” when NONE of them beat a single guy that Floyd would even get credit for! Trout was coming off a loss, Brook beat who of significance? And Porter beating Malignaggi means what? Thurman beating SotoKarass who Maidana KOed means he’s FMJs bettor? GTFOH These boys ain’t prime time players and when Canelo beats Lara I wanna see Tark extend Floyd credit for besting Alvarez… But he won’t even thought he used to call Floyd “The Goat”

Vitalis retirement should provide a glimpse into the perception of the Klits reign, no one is talking about him as a fighter..
It was a relative non event, he was consistent against unremarkable opponents that failed to provide a platform for glory and true historical standing..Wlad will be remembered more clearly yet there are no defining moments or opponents to do more than make him a statistical wonder..

Posted May 30, 2014 6:50 am

Ali is EASILY the most LOVED and FAMOUS boxer in the history of the sport..! The guy added flair and panache to the game mixed with being a WINNER, he had classic 15 round bouts that are memorable by name only.. A few kooks on a message board can’t uend the legacy of a guy who met countless Presidents and World leaders these corny knocks like “draft dodger” are simply FUNNY and illustrative of the bitter nature of many dumb posters who have never served a second in the military fighting a war that was beyond unpopular.. As for Floyd vs Manny it has been OVER for a long time, their companies don’t work together and PAC Man getting cold cocked took the edge off the fight, both are in their final contracts and discussing retirement so te results will be attacked by angry posters on either side… Mayweather outboxes him do you REALLY think the creeps on here are gonna accept that result even thought Floyd’s older?? No they will have a boatload of excuses as to why Manny lost.. And vice versa, thus fight is NOT happening and if it did in a couple years it will be more cash grab than anything else… Time to let go

The fight is not going to happen, not because Manny or Floyd are scared of each other; it’s because of the boxing promotional bodies and the two major networks that took sides. Until people talk about how the boxing politics are keeping the best fights from happening, nothing will change. And Ali’s legacy is secure. He will be forever known as “The Greatest” and Klits we never come close to that, but please, don’t let me stop you people from your sad arguments.

The only good boxer Ali ever fought, who was anywhere close to Ali in size, was Larry Holmes… Holmes won every minute of every round until Ali quit.

The other good boxers Ali fought: Ellis was tiny… Young couldn’t punch hard enough to dent Jello… Doug Jones was a light heavyweight… Bob Foster was a light heavyweight… Ellis fought most his his pro fights as a middleweight … That’s it!!!

Holmes was the only guy close to Ali’s size who could really box, defend himself well, and jab people to death… Ali didn’t have a prayer against Holmes.

Posted May 30, 2014 1:42 am 


TARK

You know.., Floyd has often said Cotto is the best fighter he ever fought. Trout beat Cotto by as wide a margin as Floyd did—without absorbing as much damage—but I would tend to agree with Floyd’s assessment that Cotto is the best he faced.. Cotto has an ATG jab.. It’s nice. It’s smooth. It’s well timed. It’s beautifully delivered. Cotto caught Floyd with some beauts, evading his stellar defense. Roger had to break out the King Sized Q-Tips and shove them up Floyd’s nose … to stem the bleeding those superb jabs drew forth.

Now… What if Floyd fought somebody who could not only jab well, but defend just as well??? Throw the right counter with brilliant range and timing??? Rip the left hook with more deception and accuracy??? Attack the body with skilled precision??? And control the ring space with masterful generalship??? Floyd would be taking a huge risk.

That’s why we’ll never see Floyd fight Lara, Porter, Brook, Thurman, or even Pacquiao… Pac is not as fabulous a boxer as these other technicians, but is fast and slick enough to pose risks … Next up??? Khan

This idiot says.., “This is all wishful thinking, however, because the entire idea of Floyd or Manny making a video calling out the other is predicated on the idea that one of them actually wants to fight the other. And clearly that is not the case, as Mayweather and Pacquiao have both illustrated repeatedly.”

Pacquiao has repeatedly called Floyd out… Floyd has never called Pacquiao out… How can you get so mixed up????

Floyd NEVER negotiated with the Pacquiao team in good faith. He just used every single ruse and excuse in the book and keeps inventing new ones.

Floyd has even said he doesn’t want to fight Pacquiao and hopes the fight will never be made… Not only that!!!

Floyd will never fight Lara… never fight Porter… never fight Brook… and never fight Thurman… He’ll never fight a prime boxer with superb boxing skills EVER!!!!!

Floyd doesn’t want to risk that “O” that’s his whole deal.

Much more skilled and gifted than Haye???

I’m not sure how much more skilled and gifted an athlete ANYBODY ever was than David Haye. If you take Haye in his peak fight—versus Dereck Chisora, a man who outweighed Haye by 37 pounds? … That was a great performance against a guy no other heavyweight has ever come close to stopping. Haye just flat out mastered the cat.

Haye overtrains… He kills his body. There’s a point where, if you keep pushing, you’re not going to make any more gains … In fact you’re breaking down at that point. Something is going to break, snap, strain, sprain, or tear. You don’t work out 3 times as hard just because you’re fighting guys who outweigh you 30 or 40 pounds.

Then you have to take weeks off to heal and start over again. That’s David Haye

Wladimir never had 40 pounds on any of his opponents. Not even David Haye, Chris Byrd, or Eddie Chambers were a full 40 pounds lighter than Wladimir. Ali was 22% larger than Foster.

Manny Pacquiao vs Ruslan Provodnikov would be the most exciting fight in the history of boxing while it lasts, but the truth is that the legendary and only 8 division boxing champion in boxing history, Manny Pacquiao would seriously hurt his good friend. I for one am against it as is Freddie Roach. Manny basicaly taught Ruslan all he knows just as Shawn Porter has also. Manny does not only mold and make champions, but he builds friendships that last for a life time. People must understand that Manny Pacquiao is just now coming into his prime. He proves time and time again that he has the ability to adjust and change boxing styles depending on who he fights. Let’s forget Mayweather, Broner, Thurman, Marquez, Martinez, Cotto and Providnokov. None of these fighters has what it takes to beat Manny Pacquiao, trust me on this. No one has seen Manny Pacquiao at his best. Bradley just learned his lesson and gave Manny Pacquiao a ton of respect as should everyone else. Manny can move up or down a division or two because he has more naturally ability, speed, power and ring intellect to take on all styles. Marquez has been running around like a scared chicken giving excuses as to why he may or may not be interested in fighting Manny Pacquiao again. This is so unbelievable as we see Ped Man afraid to take on a guy he just beat. He’s afraid just as his trainer Nacho is. They both know the testing will be at the highest level, and Master Mixer Hereida can seem to mask his nutritional mix. I hope Provodnikov and Manny Pacquiao never fight because they are what is good in boxing and society.

I think what will most likely happen is Martinez or Cotto fight Manny and Manny wins his unheard of 9th division boxing belt. Fighter of the decade, Only 8 division boxing champion and finally the only 9 division boxing champion in history. Manny Pacquiao is a monument. A shooting star that makes news just about every day. The world continues to be in awe of the legend. Manny Pacquiao will now be coaching a basketball team, and playing in games. What more is there for this man to do an accomplish. We all know what he’s done. Congressman, Greatest fighter of all time, Great Singer, Great Actor, Great Model, and he’s done it all by himself. Manny Pacquiao is an incredible human being that is beloved by the world. Manny is the best!

SRedmond size is relative. Facts are Ali held a bigger advantage than Wlad did over his foes when it came to both weight and reach. This is not Wlad compared to Ali, it is each compared to his opponents.

@SLIM

You mean like Ali poured hot wax on 197 pound weakling Leon Spinks??? Spinks was amateurish with only 6 wins. Ali had 27 pounds on him. That didn’t stop little Leon from beating Ali… Ali fought Leon because he was ducking Larry Holmes—a real heavyweight who would have trashed him.

You mean like Ali poured hot wax on Ken Norton??? Norton was an uncoordinated blooping swinger, and big punchers often KTFO of Ken, flattening him early… Norton weighed only 210 when he beat Ali up.

You mean like Ali poured hot wax on 5’10” Joe Frazier??? Joe was a walk in swinger who weighed 205. Ali, at 6’3” X 215 had 5 inches of height on Frazier when Joe hooked the crap out of him. Joe couldn’t do that to 217 pound George Foreman. Frazier didn’t stand a chance in HELL against a big, tall, powerful puncher.

That hot wax really got those engines going… They sure all beat the crap out of Ali.

But maybe you’re talking about Alfredo Evangelista… who had 14 wins as was one of the worst challengers in fistic history… Ali and Evangelista seemed to make a truce in the first round.

Johnny Carson said, “This just hot off the news wires folks… Muhammad Ali and Alfredo Evangelista just won the Nobel Peace Prize — for Promoting Non-Violence in Boxing.”

Saying Grabimir has better footwork than Ali is pure BS , Ali in his early days was hardly touchable and moved with fluidity. Grabimir hardly throws any other punch other than a jab and a right hand whilst his main line of defence is to grab and put his weight on his opponents.

Anyone pretending that Ali was a massive HW that enjoyed the physical advantages and strength of a Wlad Klits is seriously trying to spin the unpspinnable.. I don’t hold Klits size against him as a boxer but it does look tragic when a man that powerful is super cautious and finds a way to make unwatchable fights on a pretty consistent basis… Klits is routinely 4 or 5 inches taller than his opponents… Morons will try to sell us that the difference between Povetkin and Wlad was minor or Mormeck and Wlad GTFOH… Wlad is one of the biggest HW Champs in history and its all MUSCLE not some fat chump (to his credit) again he should not be penalized but pretending that Wlad is routinely the salme size as his opponents is crazy

Hi Curtley I personally think both Liston and Foreman are very overrated (although I love Big George). Liston was 2-2 in championship fights, and to me was mentally weak. Act crazy like Ali and Liston pissed his pants. You do realize Ali had been knocked down by both his previous opponents before Liston (by small men 180lbs), yet Liston couldn’t even hurt him when he was blind???? Foreman fought terrible competition, his opponents win ratio was ~70%, his title reign was 5-3 and his KO% in title fights was a dismal 50%, by the way he outweighed his opponents by an average of 20lbs. Both these men were slow as molasses, and won many fights by reputation and intimidation.

I haven’t moved away from anything. I was specifically addressing your outweighed by 20 lbs comment and I raised the issue of the reach disadvantage the Klitschkos and white fighters in general find themselves in compared to the black counterparts.

Posted May 29, 2014 3:44 pm 


Brent

What’s this crap about reach?

Marciano had a 67” reach, shortest reach of all heavyweight champions. Rock went unbeaten, untied, and best KO ratio … Frazier had the next shortest reach.

Tyson had 3rd shortest reach and easily beat heavyweights with gargantuan arm length: Biggs, Tucker (who knocked out Buster Douglas), Bruno, Ruddock, Smith, Holmes, Williams, the list goes on. Shorter arms give you more leverage. This was apparent in Hagler-Hearns, Barkley-Hearns, and Toney-Nunn.

Paul Williams had the longest reach for any welterweight/middleweight. Sergio had better leverage, more strength, got off quicker, therefore planting Paul for the evening.

Reach isn’t the deal. Reaching the target with skill, speed, and power is the real deal.

Reach isn’t race related either. There are white guys with long arms and black guys with stubby arms. Lithuania had a ton of tall, long armed white guys on their Olympic basketball squad that almost best us. Their population is relatively small.

Laj you are correct and I fully agree but by then Ali was a shell of the fighter he once was, greatness is all dependent on whether you see it as numbers over a career ie Wlad and Floyd or the brilliance of a fighter at his peak ie a LW Duran or a welter weight Ray Robinson. I tend to opt for the latter but agree its harder to prove as its totally based on opinion rather than hard stats but these stats can often lie, you only have to see Sven Ottke to prove this to me Wlad is a cracking HW who could have mixed it any era, has only 3 losses in over 50 fights but if you look at greatness he cant in my eyes be compared to Ali who rocked the world vs Liston and Foreman!

Posted May 29, 2014 3:26 pm

SLIM, punch, curtley — Again: Ali made a MILLION technical errors…he wasn’t a big puncher…he had no body attack…couldn’t fight inside and he had a HORRIBLE defense…Ali got hit a lot!!! MA was beaten up by novice Leon, who only weighed 197…by Norton, who was knocked out by the 188-pound novice Jose Luis Garcia.
Foreman couldn’t box…therefore he was easy to beat for MA. He couldn’t even land a big punch on JY… He couldn’t handle a jab… jab less Morrison and Briggs out-jabbed Foreman. Tyson lacked defensive skills — just watch Tyson vs Douglas. Holyfield was out-boxed by Toney, Donald, Coward Bowe…and floored by Ruiz…

But they all would’ve “knocked the f#ckin bums” Vitali and Wlad OUT! Yeah…right….STRONZI…!

punch Wlad is overall a greater athlete, and he is much better defensively. Ali has the advantage on the inside and hand-speed, but Wlad has better reflexes, footwork, technique, and power. Wlad is definitely better technically, not sure skill wise, they are fairly close in my opinion, and both ATG’s. Ali had a will to win at any cost that Wlad probably doesn’t have.

That list is really interesting and I must admit I didn’t realise that Ali was quite a bit bigger than many of his fighters. The one thing I would point out though is Ali’s best victories were probably those against Liston and Foreman two guys who were not only bigger than him but were serious bad asses Wlad has never been in a situation where he has beaten a guy that he was not supposed to which although not his fault is to me the route to true greatness, in fact he has lost to guys he should never have in Purity, Sanders and Brewster which hurts his legacy in the fact that other than Brewster and with Sanders in particular he never wanted to avenge the loss this is the reason for me he sits behind Lennox who for all his faults brutally avenged his losses!

@Anonymous
This debate was sparked by the mere claim that Grabimir was more skilled than Ali which in my opinion is nothing short of a fantasy and hardly based on facts.
So, I posed a question to highlight the conspicuous difference between the two men and how they physically match up with their opponents.
You proved my point by posting your list which underscores the fact that Ali wasn’t mostly the bigger, taller man enjoying a 20 pound weight advantage over his opponents in the ring, an advantage which Grabimir has found a way to use to drain his opponents before knocking them out. So, saying Grabimir is more skilled than Ali is a big, fat liar that can’t pass the smell test given all the advantages Grabimir almost always enjoys over his opponents. Size DOES matter if both fighters have comparable skillset a reason why there are weight classes. However, this is the heavyweight and Lewis DID rely a lot on his size to win fights especially the Tua fight but he wasn’t close to being such an octopus that Grabimir is.

Posted May 29, 2014 12:00 pm

ALTHO, IF I’m correct the reach is merely the wingspan, which incorporates the length of the upper back…. I rather look at the length of the arms and forearms as a better guide.

Some guys like Maurice Blocker were real bean poles, skinny as, so their arch really was a reach, but guys like BERTO with broad backs actually do not have as long a reach as you may think.

Hope this post makes sense as I’m out and about and rushing for public transport!

The Voice of Boxing

Why as soon as someone picks one fighter over another people start calling them names? I am a fan of boxing and not just one fighter and although generally, I prefer a slick boxer if he has no punch nor will finish a guy off when he has a chance, he will never be my favourite.
I also love action fighters because I pay my money to see someone get KTFO. Having said that, I do not hate MMA I just think it is just too brutal. Let me explain. In boxing when a man is down you don’t jump on him like a wounded animal and bludgeon him like you want to kill him. MMA does that and I find it gruesome.
I like Gatti, Saad Muhammad, Duran, Chavez, GGG and guys like that. I have never been a BHOP fan because he is way too boring and cheats. I do respect what he has done and the same for Floyd. But Floyd fights too cautious. The Floyd of the late 90’s at 130 & 135 was tremendous. He was slick and KTFO people he wore down.
Vitali is a warrior but Wlad is a scared bum. No way he would have won a title in the 50-80 era. First there was usually 1, maybe 2 titles, held by very good fighters and they quickly unified it, so a great fighter held it. Vitali would have done well and maybe won a title but not Wlad. No chin, no guts and so no glory.

Wladimir didn’t used to hold much at all before he hooked up with Steward. It’s actually very rare for Eastern European fighters to do that. They also tend to be some of the least dirty fighters out there as well.

And where do you think Wladimir learnt to hold? From his American trainer. The same one who taught Lewis how to hold. You’ll find that the vast majority of fighters who hold to excess are either American or are trained by trainers who spent time over in American gyms studying under the tutelage of American trainers.

Wlad won Olympic gold at 20. Everyone with sense knew both Klitschkos would do well as pros with their pedigree, size, power etc and that was back in 1996 when Lewis, Holyfield, Tyson were still around! Wladimir Klitschko is an All Time Great Heavyweight Champion, WBA/IBF/WBO/IBO/RING Champ, longtime #1, 62-3, unbeaten in ten years…deal with it, suckas!

I’ve never once heard anybody use the size advantage argument to try an undermine Cuban legends Savon and Stevenson dominance.

Wladimir isn’t always the taller man and I think you’ll find that his record against taller men holds up very well.

Lennox Lewis was often the taller and heavier man, why doesn’t that ever get mentioned? Why is the size advantage only ever brought up when white fighters are dominating? Why has the NBA and NFL excuse only surfaced since then too?

Truth is these things were never even mentioned before the Klitschkos took over the division. Nobody used these excuses to try undermine Lennox Lewis’ reign. They still don’t. Why don’t we ever hear anyone say Audley Harrison and Anthony Joshua only won their Olympic golds because of their size advantage? I bet you no one will trying to undermine Anthony Joshua’s reign with those excuses if he were to go onto to dominate.

Lennox Lewis – 84” reach
Riddick Bowe – 81” reach
Deontay Wilder – 84” reach
Henry Akinwande – 86” reach
Michael Grant – 86” reach
Oliver McCall – 82” reach
Jameel Mccline – 82” – reach
Lance Whitaker – 84” reach
Toney Tucker – 82” reach
Larry Holmes – 81” reach
Bonecrusher Smith – 82” reach
Frank Bruno – 82” reach
George Foreman – 82” reach
Shannon Briggs – 80” reach
Buster Douglas – 83” reach

Even shorter black heavyweights often tend to have disproportionately longer reaches than their white counterparts.

Oliver McCall – 82” reach
Hasim Rahman – 82” reach
Bryant Jennings – 84” reach

Ali and Holyfield’s reach is only an inch shorter than Vitali’s

Muhammad Ali – 78” reach
Evander Holyfield – 78” reach

Now compare those fighters to some comparatively equally sized white heavyweights 6’4” and above

Wladimir – 81” reach
Vitali – 79” reach
Andrew Golota – 79” reach
Lou Savaresse – 80” reach
Robert Helenius – 79” reach
Corrie Sanders – 77” reach
Siarhei Liakhovich – 74” reach

Even acromelic giant Nikoai Valuev who’s 7’2” tall only has an 85” reach

I did not say it was wrong for HAYE to pull out of a fight where most of his income would be in UK TV revenue. What pees me off with HAYE and Groves is that they are habitual liars and gameplayers.

The public would understand if he admitted he was pulling out because he wasn’t getting paid, but to make up bs excuses about back injuries is a bit thick and people would’ve understood that Groves was scared for his life after getting death threats to be shot if he stepped in the ring with Kenny Anderson once more.

The truth is we want the truth and not bs lies.

Look at Oscar De La Hoya… That twat is like a running tap these days as he’s lied so much in the past, he can’t help but dribble out all his lies about cross-dressing, trying to steal Pac from under Bob’s nose in 2006 and every other transgression he’s done, including drugs, because he has such a weight of guilt on his shoulders.

HAYE wanted to get paid and I have no issue with that.

My issue is that the rumours were out there re Setanta, he said it wasn’t so and we kept pumping in our subscriptions to a ship that was already taking in water.

I saw the same signs at a gym I used to use back in 2005. in the months before they went under they literally doubled their footprint by getting in OAPS at lunchtime (when I used it) on Tuesdays and Thursdays and drumming up all these catchy little packages for students etc and getting all the new people to sign up for a year in advance.

Thank God I was on a monthly debit and I was tipped off by POPEYE (people may know this geezer) when he came in and took down all his boxing bags, speedball and other boxing equipment…

I cancelled my contract there and then and others had big troubles getting their money back.

Just another Cautionary Tale!!!

TJ, would you get in the ring with Klitschko if you thought you might not get paid for it? When the fight eventually happened Haye turned up believing he could win unlike the recent list of Klitschko opponents – Povetkin exclude – who really are just there for the money with no interest or belief in winning.

Posted May 29, 2014 7:29 am 


TJ

David HAYE pulled out of his match with Wladimir KLITSCHKO just days before their proposed match back in the good old says of Setanta televised boxing, claiming a bad back.
The real reason was he was scared he wasn’t going to get paid by Setanta, who had fallen victim to the credit crunch. KLITSCHKO’s backers and German Tv money was secure, but Haye’s add-ons were reliant of the British TV revenues and the plug was about to be pulled on Setanta, so like his buddy, George Groves he mad up a lie to pull out of a fight, rather than be honest and admit it was a money issue.

luvah I think you underestimate Tyson, Evander and Bowe. Tyson in particular at his peak was phenomenal but he burnt out quick, I think he would KO Haye in a 5 round war and would have KO’ed the Wlad who fought Sanders even quicker but the Wlad now would have massacred the past his peak Tyson. Fighters peak at different stages and Tyson was washed up by 25 whereas Wlad was still ‘green’ at this stage but whilst I do not spout the BS that Holyfield, Bowe and Tyson would have definitely destroyed the K-Bros all we can say is that the only time the 90’s greats met the K-Bros was a washed up Lennox vs Vitali and whilst some scream robbery the outcome was clear Lennox smashed Vitalis face to bits and was coming on. I would love to have seen Wlad fight these guys however as they are all very good HW’s and the fights would have been thrilling!

Posted May 29, 2014 6:29 am

What I am trying to say is Ali for instance was much more skilful than Wlad could ever be but he was not a smart in the ring and Pride in particular got the better of him ‘skills’ is a term that is down to opinion are they learnt technical abilities such as those that Wlad has mastered or are they natural gifts such as the ones Ali had as there is not doubt Wlad is a technical master but this has come from studious dedication to his art not a natural gift, Wlad is skilled no doubt but I wouldn’t say he is gifted like Ali!

Posted May 29, 2014 6:28 am 


curtley

luvah, that is rubbish in the extreme what about how many shots a fighter lands? Also I hate this use of Skill in terms only of fighters who do not get hit. This is to do with there style often nothing to do with skills, Duran for instance was a supremely skilled brawler who could stand in the pocket and make you miss whilst punishing you with both hands but this stand and fight style obviously meant he would get hit. Now the reason Wlad doesn’t take many is because he has an awesome jab which he stays behind and when an opponent gets close he grabs, this is actually down to a lack of skill when it comes to infighting but as he is always in Germany he is allowed to get away with what is actually cheating (see the Povetkin fight). It also has to do with genetics, for instance how would a guy such as Holyfield have avoided taking shots against guys like Bowe and Lewis as he had to get inside which even the most elusive guys would find impossible against much bigger opposition without getting hit. The reason Wlad avoids getting hit is down to good skills but as much him avoiding trading which as he is so much bigger than most is possible, don’t get me wrong he is not only big but a very smart fighter, its this combination that allows him to not make the mistake of trading that caused him problems particularly against Sanders and Brewster.

People always go on about how poor Haye was vs Wlad and he definitely was but I would argue that Wlad was as poor, he is supposedly this ATG 6′ 7″ wrecking ball but he was utterly cautious against Haye and clearly didn’t want to get involved in a fight with Haye and David trying to bring him onto a counter all fight was part of the reason for the snooze fest. I remember Wlad saying all this Pizza face rubbish but he hardly landed a meaningful punch all night. I would say that Wlad is possibly the most tactically aware HW of all time along with Holmes but in terms of skills he is nowhere near the past greats!

It`s not like it is just heavyweight either. Look at USA olympic boxing medals from 1990 onwards – they suddenly drop like a stone because the rest of teh world got involved and got stronger. Other countries have good coaching, sparring, programs and so on. The US doesnt have that advantage, and now that there is more drug testing, the Americans, who comprise the vast majority of drug cheats are really finding their place in boxing, which is essentially bowing down to the superior European stock like Wlad, GG, Kovalev and soon Lomachenko.

American dreams are so tasty. Keep having those dreams Americans and Euro’s will keep chomping them down with a few perogis, and maybe some balsamic and olive oil.

Turbo-Hamster laughing at the cane toads

People act like all Haye had was a mouth, but down at cruiser he obliterated a division in around 20 fights with only one victory being on points – and that is because he carried the guy.

His HW career might be sketchy, but in his last outing he did KO Chisora, and neither Vitali, Fury nor Helenius could do that.

Wlad was ultra cautious vs Haye for 12 whole rounds.

People wang off about Holyfield, but honestly, there is not one person he beat I don`t think Haye would have too, and I include Tyson and Bowe in that. Though that is ignoring the fact that Holyfield was a committed drug cheat throughout his entire heavyweight career in any case.

Imagine if Holyfield had to go through Wlad to make a name at Heavy – he would never have got near a belt if he had to take it off a Klitschko.

Lewis caused the cut by a blatant foul. It is on the Internet; just go to Youtube and watch how Lewis had to cheat to cause the cut.

Awe don’t give me the klitschko calling out a smaller fighter he out weighs by 30lbs stuff. Klitschko were around in part of the hay day of the heavy weighs and both stay clearly out of the way of Lewis in is prime Holyfield passed his prime, Foreman way passed his prime. They were smart to wait, Wlad got exposed by Sanders, and Vitali was beaten by a pass his prime Lewis. The Klitschko are the greatest heavy weights of this era but this era is still weak at best. Sounds like the story of Larry holmes all over again.
