My fault, I didn't read the original post which said fighters who NEVER lived up to the talk.

I was just referring to particular examples.

I hate to do this but Frank Bruno before the second Tyson fight:

'Iron Mike is rusty Mike, I'm goin to knock him out and do him a favour'.


After watching Mike look disinterested and inaccurate in his preceeding fight with Buster Mathis jnr, I actually gave Frank a chance................how wrong was I?


Also Chris Eubank when facing Steve Collins in the return:

'If I dont knock him out in the first minute of the first round, I'll knock him out in the second round, if not the the second round, it'll be the third round, if not the third round then maybe at the end of twelve.....but I will be the winner. My career is worth more than this man's life if hes going to use a hypnotist, thats where its at!'

Chris didn't have much fire in his belly on the evening of the fight though!
