Great vids, Real Glad Kostya made the Hall - deservedly so IMO. Helluva fighter, and such a class act. At the Hatton fight He was so dignified in defeat and gave Ricky all his props and even addressed the fans and wished Hatton well, classy man. I thought he'd get Hitman Hatton out of there in about 3 but thats boxing for u....

At his best Zoo had a Cannon of a Right Hand and a very Under rated left hook, people sleep on that punch and they end up ASLEEP! He measured the distance so well too, one of The very best 140lbers there ever was for my money

any craic lad?

Agreed,.... Mate you should do a poll on A Prime Tszyu Vs Hatton POLL..... It'd be interesting to see which way people see it,.... I think Tszyu for my money.

Whenever anyone asks me who my favourite boxer is I invariably say Kostya Tszyu. Bloke was just such a class act. One of the nicest, most professional fighters in modern memory. And what a fighter he was! Watching his fights was like watching a masterclass in classical boxing technique, nothing flashy, no wasted movment, just solid punches delievered fluidly and powerfully from a rock solid stance. His right hand ranks among the very best power punches ever thrown. Laser-like accuracy, blinding speed and killer power. He was one of the few fighters who knew how to make every punch in a combination attack count, none of this swarming nonsense. In his prime he had very few weaknesses. A difficulty fighting on the backfoot, perhaps, and although the loss to Philips will always haunt him legacy wise, when I analyse Tszyu I see one of the most well-rounded fighters on film.

Yeah his ability to make those punches count in those combo's comes down to his ability too keep his head and his cool when most fighters just get excited and start swarming.

It seems putting that video on and bumping up this thread from the basement was a good plan (George Peppard was fond of a good plan).
