    Jones going down against Johnson really got to me.
    I got tired of seeing him so arrogant and cocky. I wanted him to lose bad at one point.
    He lost to Tarver and then with this fight he was finally done. Eventhough it might have been determined in earlier fights - it was this fight where you knew beyond doubt the greatness had left. As much as I thought I would be happy with him losing again I wasn't.

    The 2nd picture - Gerald McClellan...I remember watching that fight live with my dad, what an exciting fight at the time. I recently re-watched with a friend who hadn't seen it, it and it's very uncomfortable viewing, knowing the tragic end result. Jim Watt's commentary makes him sound like a right c*nt, but I guess he wasn't to know.

    This was just a sad fight for me, especially listening to the Holyfield interview afterwards..

    Not really saddest but the most painful fight I have ever seen and have not watch since I saw it the first time.
