    Any Morales fight is a classic, notice after this L Manny got bigger AND faster. Incredible feat, dunno how he did it.

    Yeah. I don't have any facts other then eye test so I'm hesitant too say PEDs on great fighters. Also when he said no too random Olympic drug testing he said he got one day before Morales 1 and he felt weak in the fight.

    Povetkin was sometimes lazy earlier in his career, I always assumed that he only got on a real program after the Klitschko fight when he suddenlyy got jacked.

    Not one of my favorites, but I been watching a lot of 80s HW fights this week.

    Just interesting how much taller Bonecrusher is, but only weighed in 14 pounds more than Tyson. He looks like he should be 20-25lbs bigger, size difference looks kind of goofy.

    This. He was a textbook B+/A- fighter. A lefty who was slick, strong, and tough enough to give anyone problems but not quite good enough in those 3 areas to get over the hump against the very best guys (Shane, Thurman, iirc offhand).

    Thats true, I suppose. People do tend to forget what happened early on if the last couple of rounds are dramatic.

    I did not want to make another "tyson" thread, even tho this isn't really a Tyson topic. But I am watching this now and at the started, they say there is supplemental scoring in case of a draw?

    Timestamped here.



    I had not heard of that before, did they not allow draws with this rule set? This fight was a UD, so I didn't see that rule in action.

    @Seano @Hagler are you familiar with this rule?

    Briggs vs. Lennox Lewis is underrated, a fun fight with Briggs going for it early on, while Lennox starts slow and gets hit.

    Shannon's first loss against Wilson is also a fun fight to watch.

    Briggs was a glass cannon, but that combination of speed, size and power was really fun to watch most of the time.
    He also showed that he isn't a quitter against LL and Vitali.

    I've heard of the ref scoring the fight in the event of a draw.

    I have heard that too, but I have heard it worded where the ref will decide it, not, "use supplemental scoring".

    Just thought ti was weird all around.

    Good fight tho.

If a boxer is clearly superior to his opponent in any one round, two points should be scored for such boxer and the score of zero for his opponent.

    This gem of a fight was on the Hopkins/Dawson 1 undercard. Easy to forget considering the super disappointing ending to that PPV fight. This was an action packed and bloody war.

    Jorge Linares vs Antonio DeMarco
