the glove wasnt replaced at all but the convient tear in the glove did give ali more time then the usall 1min i n between the rd to recover. but the pt was ali was knocked down by a small heavyweight like henry cooper. so some of these big could hurt him as wellPosted December 23, 2012 4:07 am

Rch you were asking does any one elese know about dundee intentsionly ripping ali gloves in the cooper fight to give ali time to recoop in his corner after ali was knocked down with a brutal left hook to end the previous rd? Right at the bell . yes they do, Dundee has openly discusssed this and admited this himself .I am sure if you looked this up you could find more about the incident . The additional rest period was as long as it took them to take off the ripped glove off ali and put on a new one . Which Im sure dundee was in no hurry to do quickly. In time I cant say I know just how long it took .But honestly the glove ripping was not the point .The point was ali was not the flawless fighter .people have now made him out to be.. THEy believe .He flew around the ring his feet never touched the flooor. if a 185lb man like cooper can deck and smash supposedly the greatest ali with a left hook like that .Ali wasnt flawless . Ali was a master of grabbing behind the head and holding but un like when wladimer klitchko did this . ali was credited as a genius who tires fighters out with his grabbing tactics .Point is ali was one of the best but he grabbed and held he also at times fought very small inferior heavyweights but none of this is brought up .its just the klitchkos are critsised for the very same things ali is given credit forPosted December 20, 2012 10:35 pm
NEIL(Pomy)….Clay was up at 4 ….the official time by BBBC for that was 1.40…refuted later by a BBC documentary which timed the break at 1.06 .There was no gloves cut off or gloves replaced..Dundee reported to the ref there was a small tear in the glove which had occurred in the 4th round…Dundee said later he had pushed his finger into the split to make it larger…..the ref took up the time from the time keeper and continued the bout….So Neil not really a significant amount of time gained and not the grand opera Anonamous would have us believe of having his glove cut offPosted December 19, 2012 12:45 pm
Rich – Im not sure how much time he gained or how much effect it had on the actual outcome. Ali did step up a gear after that round. Ali was winning the fight before Coopers left-hook dropped him. Ali was saved by the bell and his head was all over the place when he got back to his corner. Dundee did everything he could to give Ali a bit more time to recover between rounds.Posted December 19, 2012 4:36 am
PROUD AFRICAN IF YOU THINK THAT FURY WILL BE KOED BY WILDER. BUT FURY IS AFARAID TO STEP IN WITH WILDER THEN LET WILDER STEP IN WITH ADAMAK . ADAMEK WILL FIGHT ANY ONE. HE IS SMALL FOR A HEAVYWEIGHT AND ISNT REALLY A BIG HITTER. SO A LOSS TO ADAMEK PROBALLY WOULD HURT WILDER PHYSICALLY . EVERY TIME ADAMEK STEPS IN WITHA BIG HEAVYWEIGHT i THINK HE IS TO SMALL. BUT WITH THE EXPECTION OF KLITCHKO ADAMEK COMES OUT ON TOP. HE HAS BEATEN GRANT, ARREOLA ,TRAVIS WALKER AND OTHER LARGE HEAVY WEIGHTS . HE ALSO BEAT THE SMALL BUT TALENTED , EDDIE CHAMBERS. ADAMEK IS CERTAINLY NOT UNBEATABLE . SO A GOOD WIN OVER ADAMEK WOULD VAULT WILDER AHEAD OF THE WHIT FIGHTERS LIKE FURY OR DAVID PRICE . BUT UNTIL WILDER TAKES ON A GUY LIKE ADAMEK OR BANKS i WOULD HOLD OFF ON ALL THAT BIG TALK ABOUT WHO WILDERS GOING TO KO . BECAUSE THE GUY HASNT EVEN BEAT FIGHTS LIKE CHISORA 4 LOSSES IN A ROW OR KEVIN JOHNSON WHO A DECENT BOXER CERTAINLY NOT GREAT.

If Fury is “hiding in the UK” then surely Wilder with his 27-0 record is proof that hiding in the US is infinitely easier. For a guy who’s been a pro for about 4 years I would say his career is about on track. Now compare that to Wilder, Mitchell, Price and Povetkin…….Posted December 18, 2012 8:45 pm

Tyson the fraud Fury is a punk. He has never faught a serious contender and acts as if he is the next Klitschko. Either guy that he called out would knock him out of the ring. Fury has no power, is extremely slow, and if Chisora could rock him than I know of at least ten other heavywieghts who would crush this oversized turd. Talk is cheap and Fury is a classless idiot. This is like Marc Sanchez saying he is a better QB than Brady and Manning, it is an absolute joke. Quit hiding in England, come to America, and get your sluggish ass rocked by Wilder or Mitchell because you don’t have the power to stop them.Posted December 18, 2012 6:57 pm
It really doesn’t matter what Fury has to say about Wilder or Price since talk is cheap and it’s really just a way to promote himself in the media. Hope all three have a chance to settle the matter in the ring. Given Wilder’s punch he can’t be counted out against either British HW but I’d favor Fury and Price over him. Questions about Wilder’s chin and overall boxing IQ have yet to be answered. Wilder needs to step up his comp, fight guys like Sprott, Jennings, or even Tony Thompson (whether the Tiger wins or loses against Price) before we can weigh his real chances.Posted December 18, 2012 3:51 pm

Nothing worse than you guys whining about the TOUGH tactics that are used in the sport of boxing… Some of you act like this is NOT a combat sport, every fighter deals with tough customers and the ones who are Champions learn to adjust and prevail.. Prize fights should NOT be sparring matches, you are there to HURT your opponent and impose yourself on him physically… Roughing a guy up is part of the sport, Great fighters like a FMJ handle such tactics and punish their opponents for the insolence…Posted December 18, 2012 11:11 am
If you took the top 20 HWs in the world right now and retired them Wilder would still never become champion. I won’t even go into the obvious flaws he showed on Saturday night, just the fact that he was fighting that calibre of opponent in his 27th fight shows his career trajectory. As far as David Price goes, he needs to stop obsessing about Tyson Fury and look at his goddamn date of birth; the guy has maybe 4 fights at the top level before he’s past it so if he wants to stay on the Sexton-Harrison-Chisora level then fine but if he wants to move up then the time to do it is yesterday and if Tyson Fury (a man with time on his hands) won’t fight him then pick somebody else and get on with it. Either of them would beat Wilder in a heartbeat though, Wilder is nothing more than the new Tye FieldsPosted December 18, 2012 10:07 am

It is a well known fact that Dundee split Ali’s glove to gain him more time to recover. Angelo Dundee admitted so himself years before he died.Posted December 18, 2012 3:55 am
So Dundee cut Alis glove off to rest him….Does anyone else know about this apart from you……..Posted December 18, 2012 3:40 am
Anonymous – you know boxing history, and not through biased lenses.
Yeah, you’d think Ali WAS flying around the ring the way some describe his fights.
What I find endlessly amusing is how some fans find the HW div. “boring” esp. regarding Wlad, when Wlad – to a large style extent – is just a bigger, stronger version of Ali. Except that Wlad is fighting bigger opponents. Hell, Haye is faster and a bigger puncher than almost all of Ali’s foes and look how Haye fared vs Wlad.Posted December 18, 2012 3:34 am
Ali was flying around the ring is true . but dont forget a 190lb henry cooper decked clay and had him so out dundee cut off ali gloves off to rest him .
Ali was flying around the ring when he was ClayPosted December 18, 2012 1:30 am
Decker you bring up a excellent point about Ali. No one was better then Ali at grabbibg another fighters head, and pulling it down in the clinch then Ali . He said this him self. how that tactic tired many of his opponets. He also laid on the ropes and actually let other fighter punch him in the body until they tired themselves out . The rope adope ,Thou if you listen to the descripitions of his fights now you think the guy was flying around the ring so fast his feet werent touching the ground.Posted December 18, 2012 12:59 am
lol at this guy basically describing himself while trying to downplay price/wilder. Its also probably the most obvious duck I’ve ever seen, saying both of them are untested so they should fight each other in order to avoid fighting either.Posted December 18, 2012 12:14 am
Can’t blame tyson for hyping himself, but it’s also hilarious. His best win was against an out-of-shape Chisora, and Chisora ‘aint much even at his best.
Price is untested & lacks experience, and Wilder has some defensive flaws, but both men hit massivley hard and both men are very fast. They can both improve their weaknesses.
Fury, on the other hand, has slow hands and only average power. That’s not going to get better with age. He’ll be a gatekeeper, nothing more.Posted December 18, 2012 12:01 am
Fury has better skills then Wilder…and proved himself much more in the ring.Wilder seems to have a good punch but dosent compare to Fury in overall ringmanship.Posted December 18, 2012 12:00 am
I resemble thatPosted December 17, 2012 11:32 pm
Fury>Price>Johnson>Wilder. I think Fury summed it up pretty accurately. Until Wilder fights someone with a pulse, we have no clue how good he is. Essentially Wilders last win is equivalent to Fury’s 2nd win which was a 21-3 fighter. Pretty much a fighter then would beat up anyone in a bar and rules his club, but get murdered as soon as they get matched against top 100 comp. That is not saying these guys are bums. They’ll kick anyone’s ass that is on these forums.Posted December 17, 2012 11:30 pm
LOL, why? Only in the past 10-15 yrs has boxing had true global competition… were is it written that the US has to dominate the HW (or other) divisions for boxing to be “exciting”. You’re like many fans who’s boxing “excitement” is derived from whether you IDENTIFY (nationally or racially) with the winning fighter.
“I respect the Klit brothers but the punch punch grab that they do makes for boring fights. They have to be respected for their dominance but i wanna see an exciting puncher take over.”
hey white boy vitalis at the end of his career but I dont think his style should be confused with wlads I dont see vitali jab and grab his ko rate as far as heavyweights goes is second only to marciano granted he does stay outside and controls distance with his freaky long reach he doesnt rush in to shots. but his head movement and the angles he takes both with his punches make him a punishing fighter.in his own way his defense is as effective as floyd mayweathers .Posted December 17, 2012 8:41 pm
david price and wilder arent that young to be fighting the type of opposition there fighting to me is over catious . i neversaw price even fight I just know so far he has beaten old guy.I see all those safe fights dont seem to be teaching wilder much he has power but your born with that. boxing wise he seeems to have many faults. that those easy fights are not correcting. so its time for him to step up some even a littlePosted December 17, 2012 8:31 pm

Fury has faced the better Openents but were not exactly talking top ten world class here, we have seen more from him with aspects as going the distance and getting up from a knock down and being hurt a few times ( remember the hardest he was ever hit was by himself) but he has taken a quicker easier route to the top and opting for vitalis ibf title which he will prop retire from which gives furys only chance of winning a world title as waldamir would destroy him. The power is obvious in wilder and price but only better opposition will prove there worth I say goodluck to them all and I hope they get to fight each other my money would be on price then wilder then fury but only because I’ve not seen much of wilder and a lot of the other 2Posted December 17, 2012 7:19 pm
peej,i don’t think Wilder would hit price with a shot like that,it was pretty clear that kelvin price had no power,a silly Roy Jones stance with horrible defence ,especially while in motion,and Wilder caught kelvin just prior with what looked like a shot to the back of the head,not intentionally…but kelvin was already badly hurt.The point is David Price has serious power,probably the same power in his stiff jab that Wilder had in that booming right hand that he launched from one corner of the ring to the other….Wilder will be flattened the first time he steps up to world class.That’s why his handlers are feeding him canon fodder,they know he’s not ready yet.But at least he stays active and fights frequently,but he needs to step up in order to learn and improve.Posted December 17, 2012 7:01 pm
Well Niether of the fighters have fought any real challengers were all clutching at straws here all 3 need to step up in class next year there are a few unbeaten Europeans to fight but everyone is far to protected so this discussion will continue unroll some real fights are made as for k brothers they are far too good for anyone right now were just have to wait for age to take its causePosted December 17, 2012 6:47 pm
Hennessy won’t let him fight anyone with a pulse because of his tv contract. Fury can say whatever he likes but actions speak louder.Posted December 17, 2012 6:38 pm
Fury certainly talks alot. Everybody is talking about that big right Wilder landed but did anybody notice that Price was already hurt and that right hand just put the icing on the cake. He had no defense for it because he was already hurt. But he is a big guy but he doesn’t work enough. Saw no jab from him, only his big shots.Posted December 17, 2012 6:11 pm
my god this is and has been such a horrible era of heavyweight boxing. Us fans from the U.S need an exciting and skilled heavyweight badly, thats why everyone is so quick to jump on Wilders nuts. He does have that scary right hand but needs alot of work if he ever wants to become a dominant champ worth remembering. I respect the Klit brothers but the punch punch grab that they do makes for boring fights. They have to be respected for their dominance but i wanna see an exciting puncher take over.Posted December 17, 2012 6:01 pm
he had very few am fights, he basically had to learn as a pro. the fact that he won an Olympic bronze medal after only 21 am fights shows he’s got natural talent. Manswell and Price were slight step ups, if he fights Jennings and beats him he’ll prove he’s legit.Posted December 17, 2012 4:49 pm

I like the “former British and Commonwealth” line. The reason he is a former belt holder is because he dumped them and ran so he wouldn’t need to fight Price. Fury is the biggest hype train around. Soft as butter with no coordination. I did like him in Moon Raker though.Posted December 17, 2012 3:39 pm

Puglife, if Wilder hits Price with that right, Price is all done. I’d like to see Price fight Helnius and Fury fight Pulev and then the winners fight each other for a crack at Wlad and some nice $$$$$$.
Wilder can clean up the US situation in the mean time and put Areola out of his food-crazed misery.
None of these guys will fight each other in the near future. Too much money to be made down the line. Lot’s of great possibilities.Posted December 17, 2012 1:31 pm
Fury has fought the better comp but Wilder has the medal and knockout punch. Both guys would in all likelihood be outclassed and probably destroyed by Price, but it would be fun to see them fight with the winner taking on Price. Unfortunately, the reality is that GBP, Wilder’s promoter, is going to match him with washed-up ex-champs and faded contenders (admittedly, still a step-up for Wilder at this point, which tells you something about his level of competition so far). So, while we’d like to see Wilder in there against Fury or Price, or even Americans like Bryant Jennings, Arreola or the winner of the Banks-Mitchell rematch, we’ll instead see him in against the sad, pathetic, flabby shell of Hasim Rahman, or maybe a Fres Oquendo, or a Michael Grant (Grant would actually not be half bad, honestly, given Wilder’s weak opposition to date).Posted December 17, 2012 1:24 pm
it would be a great fight between them wilder end fury … i think fury would win decision …Posted December 17, 2012 12:51 pm
Both Wilder and Fury need to stow the trash talk. Price (like the Klits) keeps away from it and thereby gains more respect. Fury is starting to come off as a poor man’s Haye. As for Kingpin beating Wilder, that will happen when Bernie Madoff walks the streets of NYC.
STFU Fury and do your talking in the ring.Posted December 17, 2012 12:26 pm
I agree Boxing Barlow. Being British I am probably biased but I cant see many people in the world standing a chance with David Price apart from Wladimir. He has scary power. But like you say, his chin is untested in the pro game. I loved in the olympics how Camarelle took him apart. He seemed to just crumble. In the pro’s he’s looked like a completely different beast though.
Fury is a decent fighter ad so is Wilder, but Price is really something special. The power he has is off this planet and he makes fighters who have in the past been very durable look like they are shakey fighters with glass jaws! A lot of his punches dont even seem to connect properly with glancing punches that look like they should be absorbed taking heavy weights out. Ive been shouting it on this web site for a few years now but people will really start to see, Price is the future of heavy weight boxing. The only thing left to really test is his chin!Posted December 17, 2012 10:26 am
Everybody gets excited after winning a fight, especially after winning in the fashion that he did. However he was talking as if he’d just won the title. It’s great that he’s got 26ko’s from 26 fights but he needs to improve his opposition to get any respect. If he’s as good as his confidence suggests then he should be fighting someone at least the level of Chris Arreola.
Would favor Tyson or David Price over Wilder at this point. Fury has fought the best of the three, followed by Price and Wilder. Wilder is narrowing the gap in opposition though and Bryant Jennings would be a good one to fight next.Posted December 17, 2012 9:49 am
That right hand of Wilders is very fast. His opposition is improving.Posted December 17, 2012 9:47 am

Furys ducking Wilder and David Price cause theyd both shatter his glass jaw. Featherfisted gypsy Pajkic who has a less than 20% KO rate hurt Fury badly and almost had him out with a right hand and he punches like a HW Malignaggi, he never even stuns anyone and he had Fury down and in serious trouble from one girly right hand! Furys sloppy defensively and both Wilder and Price are far more capable boxers than Pajkic with far better speed so theres no way in hell Fury avoids a big right from these powerful guys for 12 rounds and once it lands Furys glass jaw will be in a million pieces. Fury also has no power so even thougj Price and Wilder have shaky chins themselves Fury doesnt have the pop to hurt either guy. Fury needs to man up and fight one of them.Posted December 17, 2012 8:54 am
OK……Firtha, Maddalone, Pajkic, Power, Nasciemento, and Rogan are all AS GOOD AS or BETTER THAN Kelvim Price. And Chisora and Johnson would both be favored to beat Wilder atm. Don’t get me wrong, this was a huge win for Wilder, but anyone who compares resumes between either Fury and Wilder or Fury and Price and comes to the conclusion that Fury hasn’t fought anyone either in comparison…..well………DKSAB.Posted December 17, 2012 7:35 am

Deontay Wilder (26-0, 26 KO’s) is in my view a better prospect then Tyson Fury. I mean Fury vacated the Brittish and Commonwealth titles for nothing? Yes so it was in order to not clash with David Price, his suposted rival. Fury have nothing to back up his talk so he should not say much.Posted December 17, 2012 7:27 am
