Seldon wasn't happy to survive nor be in the ring with Tyson. He was so scared he went down from a punch that never even landed. The only thing he was happy about was his paycheck.

:lol1: :lol1:

I didn't know continuing to try and move forward and mix it up even after being dropped and hurt multiple times by the biggest puncher in history constitutes "trying to survive" :lol1:

Forbes vs. De La Hoya, I'm not sure that Forbes was just trying to survive but he certainly didn't appear to want to throw any punches at the golden one.

Bugner v Ali twice

I thought bugner gave a rather spirited effort against an in-shape,focused Ali the first time.He lost virtually every round,but showed toughness especially in the 10th round where Ali went for the kill.


It was an unusual fight in that it featured Ali as the stalker.A role in which he was rather effective as.

99% of the time these guys came in thinking they had a chance to win, but after a round or two realized all they can do is avoid getting knocked out. James "Bonecrusher" Smith is a fine example, he entered his unification with Tyson thinking he could stop the young champ. After he got hit he realized there was nothing he could do but hold on for dear life!

Camacho vs Dela Hoya, the macho man was happy to survived to hear the final bell, Oscar tried his best to knock him out.

Lonnie Smith against Julio Cesar Chavez.all Smith did was run.
