I am just watching his first fight with Whitaker. Man, he was good! He gave Whitaker problems in this fight and also in the early rounds of the second fight, when he had him down twice, but the stupid ref didn't acknowledge the second knockdown.

I actually wasn't aware before that he was also a fighter, not just a trainer, and a famous one. Bear with me, I'm just a beginner really.

McGirt was really good when he showed up to fight but then he'd have off nights and look really bad, I remember people calling him the next all time great fighter after he avenged his loss to Frankie Warren then knocked out Howard Davis in one, he then went on to get dominated by Meldrick Taylor in a fight where he gassed after about 4 rounds.

He gave Whitaker a very good fight in their first fight, it was one of the most entertaining Whitaker fights you'll see, both guys exhibited great skills and McGirt did that with pretty much 1 hand. Then he looked like a spent force in the rematch, if I remember correctly the knockdown in that fight was more a balance thing when Whitaker was ducking down low.

That was the second knockdown, when Whitaker fell against the ropes but ref ruled it a slip.

McGirt has a very impressive record, 73 wins with only 6 losses. And he also has more ko's than Toney on his record, 48. That means he was a boxerpuncher. A technician who could punch. Obviously, since he knocked out Davis in one round.

Why is it that you always hate on Pernell Whitaker? Is it because he can beat all of your favorite fighters in their prime?

Fan boy? Nah. This is a fan boy:

And in the end, let me say one more thing: yes I like Oscar. And fuk everyone that likes ******* Whitaker more than Oscar! They are either racists or just stupid as hell.

I bet you go to sleep, at night, wishing Oscar can tuck you in.

Like what you did to my thread yesterday about the best welterweights of all-time? Talking about how everyone is stupid and racist for not liking the fighters you like? Trolling like that?

McGirt had decent power, he didn't knock out too many of the best opponents he fought but he had good pop. Davis' chin was always pretty bad, with a better chin he would've won a world title.
