I just find it amazing. How much Qawi acheived, when starting at such a late age (25).

He had no amatuer bouts, and started learining boxing while in jail. But goes on to become a Hall Of Famer, and two weight world champion and make alot of $$$.

Most great fighters start at a young age, and by 25 are have been boxing for a good number of years.

Some people are just born with certain natural talents that don't go away, Qawi was born a boxer.

Like someone already said, some fighters just have that natural talent. He also had a very good chin.

He really sets an example for people who want to start boxing but think it's too late.

Qawi had defensive skills they don't teach now. Amazing when you consider he was shorter in height than Sugar Ray Leonard!

I have only seen his fights with Holyfield*2 and Spinks. What were his best wins?
