Merry Christmas boxing forum.
Clinton Woods iz da GOAT.
I can't even get a Xmas thread right. Smh.
Feliz Navidad gueyes.
I've always been a big fan of Iron Mike Ali Mayweather Pacquiao but the more complete fighters are Ezzard Charles and Clinton Woods.
Tyson is a legendary fighter who also has accomplished the rare feat of transcending his sport. The barbarism and brutality of his life, his rise and fall in boxing, and his macabre charm have made him an international icon. He has immortalized himself.
Please take your Tyson nonsense out of my "Iron" Mike Ali Mayweather Pacquiao thread.
Joe Calzaghe is the GOAT.
Clinton Woods is of course the Goat, on the other hand Tyson is a legendary fighter who also has accomplished the rare feat of transcending his sport. The barbarism and brutality of his life, his rise and fall in boxing, and his macabre charm have made him an international icon. He has immortalized himself.

"Iron" Mike Ali Mayweather Pacquiao must be Hispanic due to the multiple surnames he has.

Former world champion Clinton Woods has admitted he 'hated' working as a trainer after deciding to sever his ties with professional boxing. Woods held the IBF light-heavyweight title for over three years before retiring in 2009, but he failed to find the same excitement on fight nights as a trainer and grew disenchanted with the long hours.
The 40-year-old worked with a number of fighters, including middleweight prospect Liam Cameron, who switched allegiances to the Ingles gym this year, but he is now focusing his efforts on box-exercise classes and plans to open an amateur boxing club.
Woods told The Sheffield Star: "I hated it. Every minute of it. I didn't retire from boxing so I could spend even more time in the gym than when I was fighting. I don't know what came over me on fight nights, but I hated them and everybody who saw me thought I was a right miserable so and so.
"The fighters were a bit disappointed but this is my life and I didn't want to work at times of the day that didn't suit me. I don't know why professional training didn't suit me, but bringing kids through does, it's great. It's a much more relaxed atmosphere and that's what I am looking for."
