wait ali is from kentucky y is he in the west??

well, there was too much people from the east, so i had to shift it a little. ali lived in houston, texas when he was in his prime, and fought quite a bit of his fights in the astrodome, so i put him in the west. :)

it's not that hard to understand. each matchup will be a best of 7, and 8 people from the east and 8 people from the west. like the nba. and there is home-court(or home-ring, take your pick) advantage as well, so it it'll be interesting. ;)

Basketball sucks rat ****...but so does Butterfly's idiotic logic & bias in breaking down fantasy fights, so I guess that kinda cancels itself out.

Why aren't Ernie Terrell and Tunney Hunsaker included? Surely they are more deserving than Jeffries and Marciano.

Hi, and welcome to the Houston Astrodome in Houston, TX, where the first fight of this playoff will take place. There are over 100,000 screaming fans in the dome, and they're here for only one reason: to see Muhammad Ali! Earlier, Muhammad was interviewed by one of our reporters, and of course Ali was being Ali trash-taking about what he will do to Jeffries.

Muhammad Ali: "I'm not concentrating on Jim Jeffries. This fella's nothin' but a bum! Joe Louis is the man I want!"

Reporter: "But Louis is in the east."

Ali: "I know. But there's nobody here in the west who can beat me, so i'ma whup everyone and get to the finals, and i'll have my eye on Slow Louis."

Rep: "Ha ha! Slow Louis?"

Ali: "Yeah, that's right."

Rep: "So your looking right past Jeffries, huh?"

Ali: "Uh huh. I'm not thinking about Jim Jeffries. This bum will fall in four, and I might cut it to three!"

Rep: "But this fella Jeffries migh upset you, though."

Ali: "If he upset's me I'll retire!!"

That will give you an idea of Muhammad's take on it, hehe. At the press conference, Ali had a chance to voice him views directly to Jeffries.

Ali: "I'ma whup you worse than Jack Johnson did you fool! How dare you challenge me! I am thee greatest! You will regret this! After I whup you, i'ma eat a big steak to celebrate!

(Laughter from the audience)

Jeffries: "The only thing you will taste is my right hand before I will knock you out cold!"

Ali: "i'm gonna come out of the ring jabbin',
and then jeffries will start grabbin',
and then i'll push him off and jab some more,
and then unleash a fury and knock the boilermaker out in four!"

(Hysterical laughter from the crowd)

Well the stage is set. Both Ali and Jeffries are in excellent condition. Ali weighed in at an in-shape 212lb. Jeffries came in at a lean 220lb. Here is the tale of the tape.

Muhamamd Ali

age: 25
height: 6'-3"
weight: 212
reach: 80"
record: 29-0-0 (23ko)

Jim Jeffries

age: 29
height: 6'-2"
weight: 220
reach: 76 1/2"
record 18-0-2 (14ko)

Well, there you have it folks! Jeffires is now making his way through the ring and the crowd is booing him loudly. This is probably because of the widely know fact that jeffries is a racist.

Crowd:"BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOO!!!!!!!"

jim is wearing a light blue robe. Jeffies is now in the ring and warming up by swinging his arms. And now Muhammad is coming out now, and the crowd goes wild. Ali is fighting on his own terf, so he has the home court advantage. Remember that the fighter with the higher seed gets to fight at home in the first two fights, and then the fighter with the lower seed gets to fight at home in fights three, four and five. finally the last two fights (6 and 7) is at the home of the fighter with the higher seed, so if you count it up, the higher seeded fighter is at home four times, while the lower seed is at home three times. If any fighter wins four games then the series is automatically over, regardless if seven fights are fought or not.

Ali is not bouncing into the ring as he usually does, but he is charging and pumping his fists in the air to chants of "Ali! Ali! Ali! Ali!" like he did when he fought george foreman in Zaire.

now ali is in the ring, and he looks over to jeffries corner and makes a funny face at him, then he turns his head away quickly. Ali has his trainer angelo dundee and drew "bodini" brown in the ring with him, and jeffries has B. Delaney and Tommy Ryan with him. Ali is now bouncing in the ring as he usually does. Jeffries is on his toes a bit as well. Here is the ring announcer Michael Buffer!

michael buffer: "Ladies and gentleman, welcome to this aaaaaaall-tiiiiime boxing playoff in Houston, TX! In the blue corner, from San Francisco, CA! He's wearing light blue trunks. He stands 6"-2, he weighs two-two-ooooh, the Boilermaker, James J. Jeeeeffriiiies!(the crowd boos loudly) and in the red corner(loud cheers) from Houston, TX. He's wearing white trunks with the red trim. he stands 6'-3, he weighs two-twelve, the louisville lip, the dancing master, the greeeateast, Muhammaaaaaad Aaaaaliiiiiiiii!(Hysterical cheering and screaming from the crowd) Fifteen rounds!"

Now we are all set. lets listen to referee mark conn.

conn:"protect yourself at all times. i want to to break when i tell you to break, in event of a knockdown, i want you to go to the farthest neutral corner until i tell you to come out. three knockdown in any round, and the fight is automatically stopped. if knocked down, a fighter will be saved by the bell if the round ends before i finish the 10-count, any questions ali? and questions jeffries? ok, shake hands and come out fighting. good luck to both of you!"

15 rounds. ali was talking to jim during instructions. jeffries just looked at the canvas. ali is praying now, and now he turns around and is bouncing. jeffries just stands there. muhammad is a 4 to 1 favorite. ali said, "i'll beat him in 4." we'll see.

Round 1: The bell rings, and both fighters come out. ali is dancing, and looking for a spot. jeffries just follows him around. ali after 15 sec. hits him with a quick left jab. jefries lunges with a left lead, and misses as ali pulls from the punch. ali is hitting jeffries with more jabs, but jeffries is not bothered. jeffries is now throwin big boms and is missing. ali throws a one-two combination. ali is still on the run, knowing that jeffries has ko power in both hands. ali is still getting some offense in, and jaffries is just dazzled! jm doesn't know what to do as ali hits him at will. the bell rings: delaney, jim's trainer is telling him to keep trying to corner him and to not throw wild shots. dundee is telling ali to keep doing what hge's doing and to keep moving and watch out for jeffries right hand. both fighters up off the stool now.

Round 2: Ali keeps moving and putting lightning punches together. jeffries throws the left hook but misses. as ali throws a right hook, jim counters with a left jab and grazes ali's jaw. ali is not bothered, but he presses on. ali now is holding his hands lower and the tenseness has gone out of him. he is still moving, but not as much. jeffries keeps throwing big shots but misses most of them; ali gets hit with a lefthook and an overhand right, but he takes them well. ali keeps throwing jabs and now jim's right eye is puffed up. ali's jabs are getting to that eye. for the last ten seconds ali dances without throwing a punch: jim's cornerman is applying ice to that eye. dundee is telling ali to keep his hands up. ali is up 20sec. before the warning bell sounds. jim however needs all the rest he can get from chasing ali around the ring and throwing big punches.

Round 3: ali is now flatfooted and can get more power this way. he predicted a fourth round ko, and he is trying to make it stick. he now is throwing short left and right hooks as well as his constant left jab. one-two's and the occasional uppercut is used by muhammad as well. jeffries has never experienced this before not even from jack johnson! jeffires hits ali a few times that stuns him a little, and the crowd is at their feet! but ali shakes it off and keeps going. jeffries eye is now cut and some drops of blood comes out. the round ends: ali is now confident that he will win. he knows it. jeffries is now tired.

Round 4: ali charges out and is throwing punches. he is using the ali-shuffle. the crowd is amused. ali keeps throwing punches and making jeffries miss. ali throws about 60 punches in the last 15sec. and connects with 53 of them. however, jeffries chin saves him from being knocked out. the prediction fails!: jeffries eye is noew pouring blood, and delaney is working furiously to keep that eye under control. ali however, is a different kettle of fish. he is ready for action, posed, calm, and perhaps ready for the kill!

Round 5: ali comes out and tries to end it. jeffries has no answer to ali's lightning speed. jim's eye looks terrible. and about a minute into the round, ali staggers him with a vicious one-two! referee mark conn steps in and stops the fight. ali wins via 5th round tko.

michael buffer: the winner at 1:05 if the fifth round, muhammad aliiiiii!

what a way to kick off the playoffs!

ali: "didn't i tell you. he ain't nothin. i'll win in four straight fights!"

Jeffries: "he is amazing. there was no way i would hit him. he's too good."

this is buttefly1964 saying goodbye from houston, texas. we'll now send the cameras over to denver, colorado!

http://www.museumtrail.org/images/JackDempsey/jd5_TN.JPG vs. http://www.kontaktrunde.de/boxing/baer.jpg

this is butterfly1964 and welcome to the Stockyards Stadium in Denver, CO for part two of our quadruple-header, fight #1 between Jack Dempsey and Max Baer. both of these gladiators are known for their murderous punch. so it should be a good fight. both of these fighters were known in their day to be real ladies men, so to build up the female fanbase for this fight, a poll was done as publicity a week before this fight, asking a total of 1,000 women who was the better looking man. 69% chose dempsey, while 28% chose baer, and 3% was undecided.

at the weigh-in, dempsey tipped the scales at 192, while baer came in at a lean 210. let's go to the press comference, where there are many girls there staring google-eyed at both fighters.

dempsey: "I trained hard for this fight, and i'll try my best to not let my fans down."

baer: "I'm honored that i have a chance to fight dempsey. he referee'd one of my fights, and now i get a chance to fight him. I'll try my best!"

this press conference lacked the sting that the ali-jeffries build-up had, but i'm sure the fight will be a doozy! here is the tale of the tape.

Jack Dempsey

age: 28
height: 6'-1"
weight: 192
reach: 77"
record: 61-4-9 (49ko)

Max Baer

age: 25
height: 6'-2 1/2"
weight: 210
reach: 80"
record: 40-7-0 (30ko)

over 100,000 fans pack the stockyards, for these are the typical numbers that are put up when dempsey comes to fight. spectacles such as dempsey-willard, carpantier, and tunney I and II can serve as examples of six-figure attendances to catch a glimpse of the manassah mauler. dempsey has the home advantage in this one, so this will be an all dempsey crowd. dempsey is a 3 to 1 favorite to beat baer. baer comes into the ring wearing a long black robe, and a few cheers can be heard. then dempsey comes in and the crowd goes wild. Teddy Hayes is dempsey's trainer, and Mike Cantwell is baer's trainer. Let's listen to michael buffer.

buffer: "Ladies and gentleman, llllllllllets get ready to rumbllllllllllleeee!! fighting in the blue corner, from Livermore, CA, wearing gray trunks, he stands 6'2 and one-half inch, weighing twoooo-ten, the Livermore Larupper, Maaaax Baaaeeerr!! (a few cheers) and in the red corner, from Manassah, CO, he wears solid black trunks, he stands 6'1, he weighs one ninety-two, the manassah mauler, Jaaaaack Deeempseeey!(loud cheers)

Mark Conn gives instructions, and we are ready.

Round 1: dempsey comes out bobbing and weaving and throws his left hook. it connects, but max takes it well. baer jabs to try to keep dempsey away. dempsey still is pressing the fight, baer catches dempsey with a vicious right hand, that staggers jack. baer follows it with right crosses, followed by some illegal backhands ala schmeling, lol! conn warns baer. dempsey tries to tkae command but he gets caught with a right cross, jack's achilles heel, and down goes dempsey! jack gets up in two seconds and he is getting caught with some vicious shots by the larupper. 15 sec remains and dempsey is floored again! the bell sounds as dempsey gets up at the count of 7: demspey is staggered as he walks to his corner and baer seems ok. cantwell, tells baer to use his jab more to keep him at bay. dempsey is told by hayes to keep pressing and ducking his shots and to use the left hook more.

Round 2: both men come out and dempsey walks right into a jolting uppercut, and several right hands and down he goes again! there is no three knockdown rule here, so that's one thing dempsey doesn't have to worry about. however as he comes in, baer's haymakers are finding it's mark. demspey is floored seven times before the round ends. the crowd is in stunned silence as they watch their hero being pummeled: dempsey's eyes are puffed up, and he needs smelling salts to revive him. baer is cool, calm, and collective.

Round 3: both men come out and baer somehow can find jack's head despite the bobbing and weaving. demspey is floored twice in the first minute! dempsey then throws a prayer of a left hook, and just taps baer's jaw, but he leaves himself open for baer crushing over hand right, and down he goes again. demspey tries to get up, but doesn't make the count. Baer shocks Colorado and pulls off a great upset! you can hear a pin drop, as jaws drop. no one can believe it. dempsey is embarrased.

buffer: "the winner at 1:35 of the third round via tko, Max Baer." (the crown is completely silent, almost in tears)

baer: "i'm glad that i won. i hope that i can kepp this up and win the first round, and eventually the entire tournament."

dempsey: "he hits hard. once he hit me with that uppercut, i knew it was over. But i'll try to bounce back and win the next time we fight."

WOW, what a finish! first ali comes and delights the houston crowd and convincingly wins his first game, then this. can demspey bounce back, or winn baer take it all the way, find out on monday for fight #2. this is butterfly1964 signing off from denver, CO. first we brought you the west, and now for the east! stay tuned as we travel to the east coast and are cameras are switched over to Detroit, MI. don't go away!

04-22-2006, 11:36 PM
I don't agree with him stopping Jeffries in 5. But he would win i guess.

remember, the series is not over. ali has to win four games in order to move on.

http://www.hickoksports.com/images/louis_joe.jpg vs. http://www.kontaktrunde.de/boxing/charles.jpg

butterfly1964 here, at the Olympia Stadium in Detroit, MI to bring you one of the east matchups, joe louis, vs. ezzard charles. they fought before, but louis was a shell of his former self, but now they are both at their best. louis came in today weighing a nice 205, while charles tipped the scales at 183 1/4.
65,000 fans came to see the brown bomber. let's go to the press conference.

louis: "I promise i'll be in the best of shape, and i'll try to make it a good fight."

charles: "It's an honor to be able to go against my childhood hero. I hope i don't disappoint my fans in Cincinnati."

well, there you have it. nothing but respect, those two for each other. charles comes in the ring now wearing a hooded black robe. ray arcel, the legendary trainer is right beside him. (a few cheers can be heard for charles) the louis comes and loud applause occurs. this man is loved and respected by all of america for his actions in World War II, and he is a heavy sentimental favorite, and the betting favorite at 6 to 1. Louis is accompanied by his trainer Jack Blackburn. here's the tale of the tape.

Joe Louis

age: 28
height: 6'-2"
weight: 205
reach: 76"
record: 56-1-0 (50ko)

Ezzard Charles

age: 29
height: 6'
weight: 183 1/4
reach: 73"
record: 61-5-1 (35ko)

michael buffer:"Ladies and gentlemen, lllllllllllets get ready to rumblllllllleeee!!! In the blue corner, wearing black trunks with white trim, form Cincinnati, OH, he stands 6-feet, he weighs 183 and a quarter, the cincinnatti cobra, ezzaaaarrrd chaaaarless!! and in the red corner, from Detroit, MI, standing six feet two inches, he weighs two ooohh five, the brown bomber, joooooee loooouuuiiisss!(loud applause from the entire stadium.)

conn:" you know the rules of the Michigan State athletic boxing Commission, any questions? ok, shake hands and good luck to both of you'se guys."

65,000 people waiting in anticipation. will louis' blows be too much for the smaller charles, or will charles footwork be too much for louis? charles is 21 3/4lbs. lighter than louis.

Round 1: the bell rings, and charles is circling. he get a light left jab in, but louis is not bothered. louis is trying to counterpunch charles. he's always looking for that spot, that one place to unload his punishing, dynamite blows. louis gets a right hand in, but charles takes it well. as they get in a clinch, louis uses his strength to outmuscle charles and to pound the body, but charles in getting some shots in as well. charles is boxing sharply, but louis is countering well, and getting some of his famous short left and right hooks into charles jaw. It's an even round: Louis is listening to instructions from jack and noding his head, and arcel is pointing out a few thing that ezzard should look out for.

Round 2: Louis is getting his hard left jabs into charles, and is beginning to corner charles more and more. charles is moving on joe, but his chin is deteriorating from louis' fists of fury. louis is doing everything right. charles trys to counter with a right like schmeling did, but louis is onto that tactic and it doesn't work. the bell sounds: louis is up 10sec. before the warning bell, but charles needs some reviving.

Round 3: Charles again tries to counter louis' jab, but with little success. charles is trying to make a fight of it, but everytime louis lands, charles becomes worse and worse. louis then slips and falls on the canvas, and the crowd is mislead into thinking that charles put him on the canvas. but mark conn the referee signals "no knockdown". louis continues his assault. charles speed becomes less and less, and louis is wearing down his smaller, weaker opponent with uppercuts and hooks to the body and head. charles' right eye is swollen from the punishment he took. the bell rings: louis is confident and blackburn is giving him instructions. ray on the otherhand is tending to ezz'es eye.

Round 4: louis smells blood, and he is going for the kill. charles attempts to dance away from louis, but louis systematically closes the gap. louis is jabbing and then unleashes an overhand right that wobbles charles. charles is defenseless. for the last 40sec. of the round, charles is against the ropes and louis is hitting him where there is an opening to hit: charles needs smelling salts to revive him. louis is poised and ready for action.

Round 5: Louis comes out boxing, and charles is now throwing wild shots, trying to land a prayer, but louis capitalizes and lands a left hooks that drops charles. charles tries to get up, but he just falls down again. the fight is over, and the crowd goes wild!

buffer: "The winner by a knockout, at 0:16 seconds of the fifth round, jooeeee, louuiissss!!!

well, there you have it folks. can louis beat charles again, or will ezzard bounce back? tune in monday for fight #2 betwen louis and charles, right here in Olympia Stadium in Detroit.

now we will send our cameras over to Boston MA. :boxing:

butterfly1964 here, and welcome to boston garden in Boston, MA, the home of the Boston Celtics basketball team, and for this tournament, Rocky Marciano as well, who will be going against the real Deal, Evander Holyfield. rocky weighed 185 today, and holyfield weighs 207. the press conference was nothing special, but they showed great respect for each other as fighters. this seems like it will be a great fight, cause both have the heart of a lion and neither would want to go down. marciano is the 7 to 3 favorite, but evander is ready. here's the tale of the tape.

Rocky Marciano

age: 30
height: 5'-11"
weight: 185
reach: 67"
record: 45-0-0 (40ko)

Evander Holyfield

age: 28
height: 6'-2"
weight: 207
reach: 77"
record: 25-0-0 (21ko)

holyfield is making his way through the ring. he is wearing a bright yellow robe. he bounces into the ring and then shadow boxes. rocky now comes and the place erupts with applause. rocky smiles at his fans with a white, hooded terricloth robe. he climbs into the ring and rotates his arms to warm-up. i have a feeling that this fight will end in a draw, and when that happens, the fight automatically goes into overtime, which means that an extra round is fought, and the winner of the round wins the fight! well, here is michael buffer.

buffer:"welcome to boooston gardeeeenn, for the eastern matchup. Lllllllllets get ready to ruumbllllllleee! in the blue corner, from Atlanta, GA, he's wearing yellow trunks with royal blue trim, he stands 6'-2, he weighs two ooh seven, The Real Deal, Evaaandeeer Hooolyfiieeld! (a few cheers could be heard) and in the red corner, from Brockton, Massachusetts, wearing white trunks with black trim, he stands 5'-11", he weighs one eighty-five, the Brockton Blockbuster, Rooockyyyy Maarciaaaanooooooo! 15 rounds!"

as conn gives the instructions, both marciano and holyfield have a focused look on their face. Charlie Goldman is marciano's trainer, and Ronnie Shields is evander's trainer. also in rocky's corner is angelo dundee, who just hours ago, was in houston texas as muhammad ali trainer in the jeffries fight.

Round 1: Marciano is in his croutch, and evander is using his jab to keep him away. they get in several clinches, and holyfield uses his strength to push rocky away. holyfield is boxing well, and marciano is trying to find him, but can't. this is holyfield's round: both fighters are fresh for round two.

Round 2: Marciano is trying to apply the pressure, but holyfiled is too fast for him. holyfield is cornered once, and he covers up, but rocky uses his leverage punches to pound holyfield's arms, to weaken them. holyfield continues to dance away from rocky. It's still holyfield all the way: holyfield and marciano are both given instructions, and they are up at the warning bell.

Round 3: Marciano is still pressing the fight and gets in a few suzie q's, but holyfield's granite chin takes them well, marciano is slowly closing the gap, but holyfield is still landing jabs and straight rights. holyfield boxes well, but marciano is beginning to be mor eeffective. rocky still beats on evander's arms when he covers up, and his midsection when he doesn't. holyfield wins the round, but not as convincingly: marciano is still very fresh, while holyfield needs a little bit of rest.

Round 4: holyfield is still circling and trying to keep away from rocky, but marciano is closing the gap and landing his right hand more. holyfield still is hitting marciano's face often, but marciano now is beginning to take over. he corners holyfield and wales away. holyfield takes them and is fighting back, and now they are trading punches, and holyfield catches rocky with an overhand right and drops rocky! the crowd is on their feet. but rocky is up in two seconds, and the fight goes on. rocky is swinging back, but that knockdown payed great dividends for the scoring. holyfield still wins: both men needs some rest, especially holyfield.

Round 5: Marciano is landing his right hand well this time, and holy is starting to tire. however, marciano is still strong as a bull and he begins to land blistering haymakers, half-way though the round, holyfield is land some hard punches that puffs up marciano's eyes. marciano does enough to win this round: both men's faces are puffed up, and goldman and sheilds are tending to them. marciano is still strong, but holy is tired.

Round 6: marciano is throwing big punches and ducks under holy's punches. he is landing effectively on his tired opponent. It's all marciano as he pounds the body with lefts and rights: holy's eye is puffed up some more, and marciano's eye is cut, but goldman keeps it under control.

Round 7: marciano continues to land, and holyfield hits marcano a few times to make a good fight of it, but holy looks pretty well spent, but marciano is still fresh: holy needs all 60 sec. to refresh himself, but marciano is up at the warning bell.

Round 8: Holyfield is now fighting back in the clinches and is landing some punches. marciano's face is cut again, and holy fight back more. marciano and holy are both throwing punches. holy throws body punches to wear marciano down, and marciano hits the face, body and arms. the round is even: both men needs some rest and some ice on their eyes.

Round 9: Holy comes out, tired but willing. marciano is strong in the clenches, and holy is taking some shots. marciano is crouching low to get in a good uppercut that staggers holyfield. holy shakes it off and keeps putting punches together. The round is even: Both men are tired, but marciano looks pretty good still. marciano eye has blood coming out of it, so goldman takes care of that situation.

Round 10: Holy is now looking better landing jabs and straight rights and dancing away from marciano's punches. marciano tries, but holyfield is too fast for rocky. it's all hoilyfield: marciano's eye becomes a problem, but goldman ha it under control. holyfield's eye is swollen, and he is almost blind in one eye, but he still presses on.

Round 11: Marciano comes back strong, and land some punches, that worries evander. holyfield spends most of his time against the ropes while rocky hits what ever is infront of him. holy tries to box him, but he is tired and marciano continues to close the gap. rocky has evander hurt and he is going for the ko, but evander lasts the round: marciano recieves instructions, and so does evander and the warning bell sounds.

Round 12: Marciano is throwing punches with both hands and hurts holyfield continuously. marciano is strong, but holy is extremely tired. this is attributed to the superb conditioning of rocky marciano. marciano convincingly wins this round, but evander for some reason is not going down: Marciano is ready for the kill, and evander wants to turn the tide of this fight badly.

Round 13: Marciano comes out in the croutch, and lands his famous suzie q that staggers holyfield. marciano follows up with blistering combinations that make holy fall back on the ropes. marciano pounds the body and the bloody holyfield is defenseless. referee mark conn steps in and stops the fight.

buffer: "the winner by a tecknical knock out at 1:03 of the thirteenth round, Rockyyyyyy Maarciaaanooooooo!"

Holyfield: "He hits hard. I tried but this time is wasn't good enough. but i'll be back!"

Marciano: "I'm glad that i won, and i hope i will take it all the way."

That was a great fight. i can't wait to see what happens in the second fight. will holyfield bounce back? find out monday. this is butterfly1964 saying good bye. once again the final scores of our quadruple-header, Part1-ali tko5, Part2-baer ko3, Part3-louis ko5, Part4-marciano tko13. goodnight!!! :cool:

And, welcome to Harmony Hall in Galveston, TX, the home ring of jack johnson, who will be fighting against max schmeling. at the press conference, there wasn't much said. but both fighters are focused in this matchup. johnson came in at 203, schmeling weighed 191. here's the tale of the tape.

Jack Johnson

age: 32
height: 6'-1"
weight: 203
reach: 74"
record: 67-6-10 (49ko)

Max Schmeling

age: 26
height: 6'-1"
weight: 191
reach: 76"
record: 44-4-3 (32ko)

more than 30,000 people are in the stadium, and as schmeling comes out mixed boos and cheers could be heard. he is wearing a silk, white robe. jack johnson comes out wearing a gray robe, and there is loud applause. schmeling goes over to jack's corner and shakes his hand. johnson is accompanied by Henry (Pop) Blanken, max has Max Machon by his side.

michael buffer: " ladies and gentleman, lllllets get ready to rumbllllllee! in the blue corner, from Brandenburg, Germany, wearing all white trunks, standing 6'-1" weighing 191, The Black Uhlan of the Rhine, Maaaax Schmeeeeeeliiiiiing! and in the red corner, from Galveston TX, wearing black trunks, standing also 6'-1", weighing 203, the Galveston Giaaaant, Jaaaaaack Joohnsooonnn!!(loud cheers)"

mark conn: "protect yourself at all times. mandatory eightcount is waived, three knockdown rule is in effect. a fighter must immediately go to a neutral corner in the event of a knockdown. a fighter is not saved by the bell when knocked down, except for the final round. any questions? shake hands and come out fighting."

the anticipation is finally over. they are wearing 10oz. gloves. even though johnson is a 3 to 1 favorite, don't count schmeling out. he managed to knockout joe louis, so he could do the same to johnson.

Round 1: both fighters are flatfooted. johnson lunges in and schmeling counters with hard right hand, but johnson takes it well. johnson scores with a right hand and ties the smaller schmeling up. johnson pounds the body, and schmeling does some inside work as well. schmeling counters a good number of the shots jack throws. schmeling narrowly wins the round: both men recieves instructions and are up at the warning bell.

Round 2: schmeling jabs johnson and then throws a right hand, but johnson is there to tie him up. johnson continues to try to wear down his weaker opponent, with a body attack while tying him up. he hits schmeling with fast hard right that shakes max periodically. this is johnson's round: schmeling is a bit tired, but johnson is fresh.

Round 3: johnson continues to hit the body and lunge with fast left and rights. schmeling counters a few shots but they are not enough. johnson is strong in the clinches, and schmeling is helpless as johnson holds him at will. schmeling counterswith a right all of a sudden and stuns johnson. he then follows up with a barrage of punches and he has johnson against the ropes. but johnson bounces back and manages to tie schmeling up again as the round ends: johnson needs some rest, and so does schmeling. both men listen intently to instruction from their trainers.

Round 4: schmeling goes into his awkward stance and waits for johnson to carry the attack. johnson jabs infrequently, and schmeling counters with blistering right hands. johnson decided to fake a jab, to make max react with a right hand counter. when this happens, johnson drops max with a right hand! the crowd roars! schmeling is up at the count of 4, and johnson continues his attack. but schmeling lasts the round: schmeling's eye's are puffed, and so are johnson's. schmeling is slow at getting up off hos stool. johnson looks fine other that that eye.

Round 5: Johnson continues to carry the attack, and max attempts to counter, but at this point johnson is too fast for schmeling. schmeling is pretty tired from all that clinching johnson did. schmeling however sucks it up and lands a one-two-three combo that makes johnson cautious for the rest of the round: schmeling eyes are swollen and needs some serious attention. johnson is fresh and doesn't even bother to sit on his stool.

Round 6: Johnson is throwing hard rights and the clinching simultaneously. jack seems to be using his size to his advantage. schmeling is still however, optimistic. Johnson continues his attack to the body, and clinches very frequently, rendering his opponent helpless when they are at close range. schmeling hits johnson with a right hand as the bell rings: schmelings right eye is cut, and machon is tending to it. johnson is still fresh. he is used to fighting 40+ round fights, so this is nothing to him.

Round 7: schmeling tries to fight back, but johnson is too much for him. johnson keeps working the body and eye. schmeling is now against the ropes and johnson takes advantage. he throwing a barrage of punches that drop schmeling. schmeling is up at 5, and johnson continues to throw alot of punches and schmeling is down again. this time, he doesn't beat the count. the fight is over.

buffer: "The winner by ko at 1:53 of the seventh round, Jaaaack Jooohnsoooon!!"

the fans are very happy. the hometown boy won and everyone's satisfied.

johnson: "i knew there was no way he would win. he's just too small. but he does hit hard i'll give him that!"

schmeling: "he's good, very good. i'll have to dig very deep next time to beat this guy."

well, then there you have it, folks. we'll now send our cameras about 100 miles over to Houston, TX.

http://coxscorner.tripod.com/Images/foreman1.jpg vs. http://www.canadastarboxing.com/Photos/Lennox-Lewis300-0503b.jpg

butterfly1964 here at Sam Houston Coliseum in Houston, TX. the home stadium for "big" george foreman, who will go against the lion, lennox lewis from England. foreman is a 5 to 3 favorite. in the crowd is a familiar face, Muhammad Ali. when asked why he came, he said that it was only a couple of miles from his house, and he had nothing better to do, lol! however, he probably came bacause he knows if he knocks off jeffries in the first round, he will have to fight either lewis or foreman. let's go to the press confernce.

lewis: "you don't have what it takes to go against lennox lewis. you will not be a challenge. lennox lewis will walk all over you and make you look silly!"

foreman says nothing, but makes a fist at lennox and snarls.

here's the tale of the tape.

George Foreman

age: 24
height: 6'-4"
weight: 225
reach: 81"
record: 38-0-0 (35ko)

Lennox Lewis

age: 28
height: 6'-5"
weight: 240
reach: 84"
record: 25-0-0 (22ko)

lewis makes his way through the ring and he's being booed! he's wearing a gray hooded robe. and foreman charges into the ring like he did against ali and he is applauded by the 50,000+ fans. he's wearing a blood red robe. lewis is accompanied by Emanuel Steward, and foreman has Dick Saddler. let's go to ring announcer, michael buffer!

buffer: "Ladies and gentleman, welcome to this mega slugfest. Llllllllets get ready to rummbllllllleee! in the blue corner, from London, England, he's wearing white trunks with dark red trim, he stands six foot five, he weighs two-hundred forty pounds, the Lion, Lennox Leeewiis!(loud boos from the stadium) and in the red corner, from Houston, TX, he's wearing red trunks with the blue trim, he stands six-foot four, weighing two twenty-five, "Biiiiig" Geoooooooorge Foooooremaaaaaaaaan!(huge applause)"

can lewis' shaky chin survive foreman's crushing blows? can lewis out box, and tire out foreman? we'll see. mark conn gives instructions, and both men give each other the staredown, george looks especially scary!

Round 1: both men come out. both use their jabs, especially lewis. lewis gets a good right hand, but foreman walks through it. both men start trading punches. lewis then stuns foreman with his big right hand and tries to follow up but foreman catches lewis with a vicious left hook that staggers lewis! the crowd is on their feet. they keep trading blows until the bell rings.: both men need some shaking up in order to revive themselves.

Round 2: both men comes out and foreman manages to corner lewis and throws huge left and right hooks to the body then a right uppercut that drops lewis! the crowd goes wild. lewis gets up at the count of eight, and then foreman is throwing wild shots that drop lewis again. he gets up at 6, and he clinches foreman to try to survive the round, but foreman uses his superior strength to push lennox off. lennox tries to box him, but foreman is right on him. the round ends. this is all foreman: Saddler tells foreman to keep swinging until lennox drops, and Steward tells lewis to box around foreman.

Round 3: Foreman charges out and throws a right hand that misses. lewis circles foreman and throws jabs, but foreman pars them with his gloves. foreman somehow gets lewis on the ropes and unleashes a ton of body blows that drop him for the third time in this fight! lewis get up at 6, and foreman throws a crushing straight right that drops lewis again. lennox barely makes the count at 9. lewis runs from foreman and foreman is following him around, trying to land that one big shot! foreman keeps on him throwing his extremely powerful left jab, and then eventually throwes a left hook that lays the lion out cold! lennox can barely move referee mark conn stands over the beaten fighter and counts him out. the crowd goes wild!

buffer: "the winner by a knockout at 2:33 of the third round, Geoooorge Foooremaaaan!!!"

lewis: "i'll be back and foreman will be sorry!"

george: "he tried, but i was too much for him. he's even easier than i thought!"

well, there you have it folks! can lennox bounce back, or will foreman sweep lewis? find out on tuesday! now let's head on over to the east in Pittsburgh, PA!

Nope, it was a serious question, because I know I haven't read any of your fight descriptions. And judging by the amount of comments pertaining to your writings of these fights (one, maybe...Yaman?), it doesn't appear like anyone else is either.

04-24-2006, 02:21 AM
I think he's doing too much work. He should go 1 fight for each of the first 16, and then best of 3 for the elite eight, and then best of 5 for the final four, and best of 7 for the last two. Otherwise, he's got a lot of typing to do.

Holmes: "I'm gonna make you look like a fool. You haven't fought anybody of my calibur. You'll regret you even entered this tournament!"

Liston: "If you try to fight me, I'll kill you! If you run away, I'll catch you, then kill you!"

Wow, well, there you have it folks. Here's the tale of the tape.

Larry Holmes

age: 30
height: 6'-3"
weight: 209 1/2
reach: 80"
record: 36-0-0 (27ko)

Sonny Liston

age: 28
height: 6'-1"
weight: 212
reach: 84"
record: 28-1-0 (18ko)

and charles sonny liston now is in the ring, wearing a silk black robe, with Willie Reddish, his trainer. Boos could be heard in the crowd. and larry holmes is now bouncing down the aisle and he being cheered. he's wearing a white terrycloth robe. he is with Richie Giachetti. holmes is a 4 to 3 favorite.

Michael Buffer: "Ladies and gentlemen, llllllets get ready to ruumblllllllllee! in the blue corner from Philadelphia, PA, wearing black trunks with white trim, he stands six-foot-one, weighing two-twelve, The Big Bear, Clarles Sonnyyy Liistoonn! Liistoon!! and in the red corner, from easton, PA, standing six-three, weighing two ooh nine and a half pounds, The easton assassin, Laaaryyyyyyy Hoooooooolmesssss!!(loud applause)

As referee mark conn gives instructions, liston applies his bone-chilling stare at holmes' face. holmes just grins at liston in anticipation.

Round 1: Holmes circles liston and pops his famous left jab. liston is not bothered, but jabs as well, and it suddenly becomes a jabbing battle. holmes is cornered once, and liston pounds his body. during infrequent clinches, liston is able to outmuscle larry somewhat: both men are up very quickly and ready for action.

Round 2: Holmes is now using his jab effectively and countering well to boot. liston is throwing his jab and throwing bombs, but holmes blocks most of them. this is holmes' round: liston is listening to Reddish intently and holmes is off his stool quickly and up on his toes.

Round 3: Holmes is continuing to fight off the backfoot, and liston is cutting the ring off occasionally. holmes is doing everything right and keeping liston away: liston and holmes are still fresh, and ready for action.

Round 4: holmes is continuing to outbox and outclass liston, but liston is patient. liston manages to land some jabs and hooks, but holmes still does enough to win over the judges: Liston needs some rest from all the chasing and holmes is still fresh. Giachetti can be seen giving holmes instructions.

Round 5: Holmes is still circling and outboxing sonny, but charles closes the gap a little and manages to pound the body and land the left jab. liston is doing much better in cuttin off the ring and jabbing at holmes. the round is about even: liston noddes his head when reddish says something to him , and holmes is up off his stool early.

Round 6: Liston continues to cut off the ring and lands some punches that shakes holmes a little, but holmes is doing pretty good as well, holmes gains a little confidence and putts some good punches together, that worries sonny. sony eyes are swollen from holmes jab, but holmes' condition is not much better. some infighting is done, with liston dominated that phase of the fight, holmes still keeps away most of the time: liston is getting help with that eye. holmes looks ok.

Round 7: Holmes is now flatfooted. liston is cutting off the ring better and landing a host of jabs. holmes looks sloppy as he thinks he has it in the bag. liston still is landing saome body shots and is lading huge right hand to the face. holmes chin takes them, though. liston is wearing down holmes with more body shots as the round ends: liston is cofident, while holmes needs some rest.

Round 8: Liston is now throwing his "big" bombs, but holmes stays away from them. holmes uses his jab to keep liston away, but liston slowly closes the gap and corners them. it seems that sonny's top-notch conditioning is paying off, and he is fast in cutting off the ring on the elusive holmes. liston dominated this round as his body shots wear down holmes.

Round 9: Liston smells blood, he throws a 5-punch combo that staggeres holmes, but holmes shows he could take a good punch. holmes fights back, but slugging it out with liston smells disaster! liston drops holmes with a huge right hand. holmes is up at the count of 4. liston continues his attack. liston looks great as he pummeles holmes, but holmes holds on: giachetti is using smelling salts on liston to revive him. liston in confident.

Round 10: This time Liston is more patient, cause he knows that holmes is pretty well spent and sonny pounds the body more. holmes is on the ropes and is fighting back now that he realizes that he's hurt. liston lands his jab effectively anbd takes the punches holmes throws: Liston is poised and ready. holmes looks like he's done for the day.

Round 11: Liston goes after holmes, pounds the body and drops holmes with a one-two combo. holmes tries to get up, but to no avail. the fight is over. liston has a big grin on his face as he wins fight #1.

buffer: "The winner by a knockout at 0:34 sec. of the eleventh round, Sonnyy liiiston! a few phili fans cheer, but most of the crowd boos as liston walks over to console holmes and walk out of the ring.

Liston: "i can't believe how well he could take a punch! i hit him with shots that would drop the rock of gibraltar!"

Holmes: "He hits almost as hard as ernie shavers. that guy is good. i don't know how i'm gonna beat him in a 15 round fight!"

well, there you have it, folks. don't go away, we'll send the cameras over to Philadelphia, PA! :boxing:

It does seem like a ridiculous amount of effort and so few comments. Here, Butterfly, I'll say this: you try not to let your biases get the best of you in this thread. I thoroughly expected you to have Holyfield beat Marciano around the ring and knock him out. I do think Ali stopping prime Jeffries in five rounds was far fetched though.

And welcome to the Spectrum in Philadelphia, PA, the former home of the Philadelphia 76ers, however, now home of "smokin'" joe frazier. he'll be fighting the baby bull, Iron mike tyson! man, i'm salivating just thinking about how this fight will go. i remember saying in the last fight that holmes and liston were the two best left jabs in hw history, well these men are definetely the two best left hooks in hw history! frazier came in at a very lean 205, while tyson was trim and brolic at 218. at the press conference, both men had nothing but respect for each other.

Frazier: "Well, i'm ready, willing and able. i know it will be a tough fight against a great champion, and i'm fully prepared."

Tyson: "Wow, it's an honor to go against such a great fighter like frazier. i hope i will gain his respect in the fight."

However, during the press conference, just when everything is going good, a familiar face shows up. It's a bird! No i'ts a plane!. No, it's Muhammad Ali!! lol!! Ali shows up at the press conference taunting both fighters.

Ali: "I'll whup you joe fraziah like i did in thrilla in manila, chump. you big, black gorilla!! And i want you too, mike tyson. After i whup you tyson, I'ma take that flat ugly nose of yours and rearange it so maybe you can talk properly!!"(hysterical laughter from the crowd)

Frazier: "Don't worry clay. if we do happen to fight, i'll whup your ass just like i did in '71, ok, half breed?"

tyson now turns into the animal he was in the 90's.

Tyson: "You dumb ****er ali, i'll dustroy you, i own you. a wanna eat yo children and **** your wife. i'll **** you till you love me ******!"

Ali walks out of the room screaming, "i am thee greatest! i can't be beat!"

wow, what a press conference. both men really want to beat each other now, because they wan't to face ali. here's the tale of the tape.

Joe Frazier

age: 27
height: 5'-11"
weight: 205
reach: 71"
record: 27-0-0 (23ko)

Mike Tyson

age: 21
height: 5'-11"
weight: 218
reach: 71"
record: 35-0-0 (31ko)

dimensions are pretty much even, except for the weight differential. now mike tyson is making his way through the ring, and a few cheers can be heard. tyson is wearing no robe and no socks! now frazier is walking into the ring and the 75,000 screaming fans are going wild. frazier is wearing a bright green robe. tyson is with kevin rooney, frazier is with yancee durham. now let's listen to ring announcer, michael buffer!

buffer: Ladies and gentleman, llllllets get ready to rumblllllllllle! 15 rounds! introducing in the blue corner, from catskill, NY, wearing solid black trunks, standing five foot eleven, weighing two-eighteen, The Iron one, "irroooonn" miiiiike tyyyyyyyyyyysoooooon! and in the red corner(loud cheering) from Philadelphia, PA, wearing bright green trunks, he stands also 5'-11" weighing two hundreed fiiive pounds, "Smooookin" jooooooooooe fraaaaaaazieeeeeeeeerrrr!!

mark conn: "i want a good clean fight. the standing 8-count is in effect for tonight. upon scoring a knockdown, go to the farthest neutral corner. three-knockdown rule is waived. any questions? shake hands."

Both men put the stare on each other. frazier is a 5 to 4 favorite to win.

Round 1: Both men com out bobbing and weaving. both men connect simultaneously with left hooks. during the frequent clinches, both men pound each other's body against the ropes, in fact most of the round is in fighting. both men connect ith tantalyzing hooks to the body. tyson then thrown a terrific uppercut that stunns frazier, tyson then follows up with some fast combos to the had and body. at this point, frazier is bobbing and weaving like crazy, trying to avoid tyson's blows. frazier somehow holds on: frazier needs a little rest, and so does tyson, somewhat. they are up at the warning bell and ready.

Round 2: both men comes out and frazier connects with a solid left hook to the jaw and then a right hand followed by another left hook that stunns tyson. tyson then tries to hold on, but frazier is strong in there. and still pounds the body during clinches. tyson then recovers and throws a fast three punch combo to the face that drops frazier. DOWN GOES FRAZIER! DOWN GOES FRAZIER! DOWN GOES FRAZIER! Frazier is up at 5, but tyson presses on and throws a textbook left hook that drops him again! frazier is up at 3, and tyson lands some bodyshots, and frazier is bobbing to try and avoid tyson's shots. the round ends: tyson is listening intently to rooney's instructions. yank is cursing at frazier saying, "Come on, ****sucker. take you head out your ass!"

tyson: "he's a great fighter and i am happy that i pulled off the upset."

frazier: "he has fists of dynamite. only foreman ever hit me harder. he's good, but i'm confident that i'll still come back and beat him to move on to the second round!"

You're going to type out the descriptions of each of these fights when these same fighters are going to fight each other multiple times??

Why not just do a normal tournament where you lose once and you're out? This could go on for months!

it will last as long as the NBA Playoffs does. :D

Hi, and welcome to the Houston Astrodome in Houston, TX, for fight #2 between muhammad ali and jim jeffries. ali won the first match, but can jeffries pull the upset? ali is now a cinch to win as a 6 to 1 favorite. ali came today rather out of shape at 217 1/2, and jeffries was in terrific shape at 216, feeling that this will give him extra speed against the elusive ali. earlier today ali was interviewed by a reporter.

reporter: "I heard that you didn't train much for this fight, is this true?"

ali: "Yeah, well there no way this bum could beat me, so why should i train like a madman?"

rep: "Any predictions?"

ali: "Nope, not today. Sorry!"

I guess ali feels he's got it in the bag. well, here's the tale of the tape.

Muhamamd Ali

age: 25
height: 6'-3"
weight: 217 1/2
reach: 80"
record: 29-0-0 (23ko)

Jim Jeffries

age: 29
height: 6'-2"
weight: 216
reach: 76 1/2"
record 18-0-2 (14ko)

jeffries is now in the ring wearing a black robe. some boos could be heard from the 95,000+ fans. ali now comes bouncing into the ring wearing a white robe that has "THE GREATEST" across its back. let's listen to ring announcer michael buffer!

michael buffer: "Llllllllets get ready to rumbllllllle! in the blue corner, from San Francisco, CA, wearing black trunks, at 6'-2", weighing 216, the boilermaker, jaaames jeefrieees! and in this corner, from houston, TX, wearing white trunks with black trim, standing six-three weighing 2 seventeen and a half, the greatessst muuuhammmaaaaaad aaaaaaalliiiiiiiiiii! 15 rounds!!

ali doesn't even bother to stare or talk to jeffries as referee mark conn gives instructions.

Round 1: ali circles jeffries and uses his jabs. jeffries lands some right hands that ali takes. ali is trying to dance away, but a little bit of bounce is gone in his legs and he is not as elusive as he was two days ago, and jeffries is cutting off the ring well against ali, landing some good body shots. ali is fighting off the back foot, but jim closes the gap. ali lands left jabs periodically, but jeffries lands some shots as well. some right hands get into ali's face as jeffries dominates and wins the round, the first round jeffries has won in the whole tournament!: ali is listening to dundee nodding his head. jeffries looks determined and confident.

Round 2: Ali continues to land his left jab, but jeffries cuts off the ring. ali is trying to stay away but to no avail. jeffires pounds the body and lands some left hooks to the head. ali scores with left jabs and straight right, but jeffries is doing much better than in the first fight. the crowd is on their feet as jeffries tries to upset muhammad. jeffries and ali get into a clinch, the first clinch in this particular series. jefries attempts to use his strength to muscle ali, but jeffries is suprised as ali uses his 217 1/2lb frame to push jeffries off. jeffries is astounded at his physical strength as one phase of jim's game plan just went out the window. jeffries felt that with his his new found speed and the increased clinching, that he would dominate in that area, but he was sadly mistaken. ali continues to land jabs, but jeffries is still landing his big shots and aagin, wins the round: dundee is screaming at ali to keep moving and to stay focused. delaney tells jeffries to keep pressing the fight.

Round 3: ali moves around and lands his jab, but jeffries still manages to close the gap. ali is taking all the shots jeffries throws at him, but he knows he has to pickup the pace, so he starts jabbing at a furious pace, but jeffries finds openings to throw punches, and ali is a bit worried. jeffries fights a smart fight to win this round as well: ali is getting some rest and delaney is applying ice to jeffries slightly swollen eye.

Round 4: jeffries presses the fight, and ali, realizing that he has no other choice, plants his feet and starts to trade with jeffries. after about 30sec of throwing punches, ali gets up on his toes again and is landing his jab and straight right. ali looks slightly better this time, using the ring well, and dancing at inervals, periodically going flat-footed to conserve energy he would have more of if he trained harder. jeffries still lands some shots. this round is about even: ali is a bit weary, and so is jeffries, but both of them are fine. jeffries eye is now very swollen, and delaney fears that it's just a matter of rounds before conn might stop the fight because of a nasty cut like last time.

Round 5: ali is now on his toes throwing rapid-fire combinations, landing most of them. ali is doing a slightly better job of keeping away from jeffries. ali and jeffries both are landing some big shots, and jeffries eye is now slighly cut. ali is landing his jab effectively and narrowly wins the round, finally!: delaney is tending to that eye, and ali is resting.

Round 6: Ali is again circling looking for that spot. jeffries is landing a few good shots that staggeres ali. ali manages to dance away long enough to recover, and he continues with his gameplan. ali keeps peppering that cut eye as the flow of blood increases. ali keeps doing this while dancing away from jeffries punches. this is ali all the way: delaney is working very hard to keep that eye under control, and he is successful as he closes the cut. dundee is giving ali a few pointers. both fighters are up at the warning bell.

Round 7: Ali is landing that jab effectively while jim continues to corner ali and land body shots and some left hooks, something he has been practicing since the last fight. jeffries feels this is his only chance to victory, landing the left hook on ali. ali manages to cut that eye agin, as he works on it with hard left jabs. jeffries continues to cut off the ring, landing big left hooks that periodically stunn ali. this is jeffries round: ali and jeffries are both a bit tired and need all the rest they can get.

Round 8: Ali is still jabbing at that eye, but now is putting punches together and moves a bit better, however jeffries still systematically closes the gap at times, but ali does enough to win the round as jeffries eye is now in an appauling state as blood is all over his chest from that eye: delaney works on the eye, and ali i given instructions at the warning bell.

Round 9: Ali works on that eye and cut ist again, now he throws alot of punches at that eye. jeffries is now half blind and ali hits him at will. blood is all over jeffries, a good amount is on the canvas, on ali, and on referee mark conn when he pushes the two fighters apart from clinches. conn is given no choice but to stop the fight. ali raises his hands in victory, but in his heart he known he has been lucky to come away with a win, for jeffries was ahead on two of the judges scorecards.

buffer: "the winner by a tecknical knockout at 1:58 of the ninth round, Muhammaaaaad, aaaaaaliiiiii!(the crowd cheers in gratification)

ali: "no way this guy could beat me. i embarrased him here, now i'm gonna embarras him on his terf!"

jeffries: "My plan almost work. i feel there is a momentun shift, i'll be fighting him with my fans lokking on now, and i'll have the support my people. i know i could beat clay now!"

ali walks over to console jeffries. dundee cuts off ali's gloves and congradulates him, and then angelo quickly walks out of the ring to catch a plane, because in just a matter of hours, he will be one of the handlers for rocky marciano's fight against holyfield.

well, that was a better fight than last time, and a close call for ali. can jeffries use the home-ring advantage in his favor, find out on wednesday. now let's send the cameras over to denver, CO!

butterfly1964: "Well, jack, how do you feel about this fight?"

dempsey: " I promise that i will not lose. i'm too focused. this is what i have to do. just taking care of business."

butterfly: "I really feel honored to be interviewing one of my favorite fighters of all-time."

Here's the tale of the tape!

buffer: "Lllllllllllets get ready to rumbllllllllllleeee!! fighting in the blue corner, from Livermore, CA, wearing blue trunks, he stands 6'2 and one-half inch, weighing twoooo-thirteen, the Livermore Larupper, Maaaax Baaaeeerr!! and in the red corner, from Manassah, CO, he wears solid black trunks, he stands 6'1, he weighs one ninety-one, the manassah mauler, Jaaaaack Deeempseeey!(loud cheers)

dempsey puts the stare on baer as mark conn gives the instructions.

Round 1: Dempsey comes out bobbing and weaving, and max comes out slugging. dempsey is caught with a right cross, but he takes it well, and ducks under baer's other wild punches. jack moves in and out looking for that spot. demspey connects with solid punches to the body, and then the left hook connects and down goes baer! Unlike dempsey-tunney II, dempsey quickly goes to a neutral corner. he learned his lesson, lol! when max rises dempsey rushes back and is throwing blistering punches that send max down again. max has no defense for this kind of fury and goes down a total of 16 times in the first round!: dempsey is confident, while baer is half out of it.

Round 2: dempsey comes out and immediately floores baer with a left hook! baer is slow in getting up and he goes down 11 more times! baer ries to hold on, but dempsey pushes his off and land head and body shots to baer. dempsey leaps two feet in the air to throw a left hook that catches max flush and he goes down. he doesn't get up! dempsey wins and the crowd goes wild. but max just lies there. he has to be taken to the hospital to be examined. baer is momentarily by doctors pronounced dead, but he somehow is revived.

buffer: "the winner, by ko at 2:56 of the second round, Jaaaack deeeempseeeeyyy!!"

dempsey is happy in victory, but is sorry for putting max in that condition. the next time they fight will be in California.

Round 3: Louis is on the offensive and gets charles on the ropes and throws some hard, fast punches that drop charles. charles is slow in getting up, and louis advances to pound the body and throw electrifying uppercuts to the bottom of ezzard's jaw. suprisingly, charles lasts the round: charles is a bit tired and blackburn gives a few pointers to joe.

There have been no knockdowns. marciano had a cut on his right eye, and holyfield was puffed up in the right as well. if there is a draw, then the fighters will have to go into overtime, which means that each fighter will have to fight another round to determine the winner. here is michael buffer!

buffer: "Judge Artie Aidala scores it 8-6-1 for holyfield! judge Tony Castellano scores it 8-7 for holyfield! (boos could be heard) Referee Mark Conn scores it 10-5 holyfield, winner by unanimous decision, Evandeeeeeeer Hooolyfieeeeeld!!"

holyfield: "I'm glad i evened it up. and when i get back home, i hope i could keep the momentum going."

And, welcome to Harmony Hall in Galveston, TX, for fight #2 between johnson and schmeling. johnson came in at 206, and schmeling at 193. let's go to the press conference.

johnson: "I'm taking it all the way! he can't beat me. I'll be having my eye on that kid ali and louis, especially louis."

Schmeling: "I am happy that i have a chance to fight in da tournament. And I hope dat de best man may vin."

johnson is a 4 to 1 favorite, and 35,000 fans came out today. here is the tale of the tape.

Jack Johnson

age: 32
height: 6'-1"
weight: 206
reach: 74"
record: 67-6-10 (49ko)

Max Schmeling

age: 26
height: 6'-1"
weight: 193
reach: 76"
record: 44-4-3 (32ko)

Schmeling comes out and is confident and willing. Johnson is in the ring practicing a little of his footwork. here is our ring announcer for tonight, michael buffer!

michael buffer: "ladies and gentleman, lllllets get ready to rumbllllllee! in the blue corner, from Brandenburg, Germany, wearing green trunks with black trim, standing 6'-1" weighing 193, The Black Uhlan of the Rhine, Maaaax Schmeeeeeeliiiiiing! and in the red corner, from Galveston TX, wearing black trunks, standing also 6'-1", weighing 206, the Galveston Giaaaant, Jaaaaaack Joohnsooonnn!!(loud cheers)"

johnson and schmeling both stare at each other, but not that menacingly as referee mark conn gives the fight instructions.

Round 1: Both men circle each other. johnson lunges in with a flurry, but schmeling side steps it and counters with a right cross and then a left hook. johnson uses his strength in the clinches like last time. schmeling counters well and wins over the judges: Blanken tells johnson how to deal with max's countering, and machon encourages schmeling to keep sharp and let johnson make the fight.

Round 2: schmeling continues to counter. johnson is a bit faster, but shmeling is crafty. schmeling is giving a good account of himself as he lands some right hands. johnson doesn't know what to make of the situation. he does a little in-fighting, but schmeling looks pretty good in that department as well. schmeling gains confidence as he starts to make the fight and throw some combos that hurt johnson, he follows up with some fast punches as the round ends: blanken says to keep his hands up and react to the counter right hand. schmeling is poised and ready.

Round 3: Schmeling makeds the fight mow as he lunges in, but johnson ties him up and work max's body at the same time. johnson lunges in, but max throws a hard counter than rocks johnson, and then max throws a flurry and then a crushing right that sends johnson to the canvas. the crowd is on their feet as johnson get up at the count of five. johnson somehow survives the round: blanken is worried for johnson, and machon is encoraging schmeling.

Round 4: johnson is now linging in throwing a barrage of punches trying to end the fight ala stanley ketchel! but schmeling holds on and goes back to counterpunching johnson's cat-like lunges. johnson is landing some good shots and is looking better. he staggeres schmeling in this round and has won over the judges: both johnson and max are listening to instructions from their respective trainer's and are ready for action.

Round 5: schmeling is looking for johnson to carry attack. jonhnson jabs, and schmeling looks to counter those jabs. johnson is hurt by some blockbuster shots from schmeling. schmeling follows them up, but jonnson luckily for him ties max up. johnson tries to fight back, but he not looking good as schmeling seems to be pot-shotting at the dazed and wobbly-legged jack. schmeling dominated the round: johnson is being revived from the onslaught from the german, and max is ready for some more.

Round 6: Schmeling is now landing some jabs and right hands onto johnson's shaky chin. johnson is doing some good in fighting, but schmeling is coutering with that right hand, which is the defining factor in this fight. johnson lunges in with one big bomb, but schmeling takes the punch pretty well. this is schmeling's round: johnson's eyes are puffy, and so are schmelings, but schmeling looks fresher.

Round 7: johnson is now landing his jab well and getting some right hands in. schmeling continues to counter well with that right hand of his, and johnson is more cautious. max now presses the fight and lands a left hook that staggeres johnson. somehow, max get jack on the ropes and is wailing away at the midsection and jaw. johnson is defenseless. johnson tries to stay away, but max is reletless. johnson weak chin is coming back to bite him in the behind and schmeling is hitting him, and hitting him hard: by the end of the round, johnson has to be helped by his handlers back to his corner.

Round 8: schmeling tries to finish him off, but johnson ties him up. johnson does nothing but tie schmeling up in order to gain energy and strength back. those punches he took from schmeling in the last round are still affecting him now. johnson holds and holds and occasionally hits schmeling with a right hand, and the round is about even: johnson is a little fresher from taking that breather, and schmeling looks pretty good too.

Round 9: A fresh Jack tries to carry the attack, but schmeling is countering the blows. for the first minute and a half, it's a chess match. then johnson throws a right and max counters with a left hook followed by a hard right that hurts johnson. schmeling follows with a paralyzing one-two combination that leaves johnson crumbling onto the canvas. as referee mark conn stands over him and counts, johnson tries to get back up, but he just falls back down and collapses! the fight os over! max raisea his hands in jubilation like he did against joe louis in 1936.

buffer: "The winner by a knockout at 1:52 of the ninth round, maaaaaaax schmeeeelinggggg! (the crowd is stunned silent)

schmeling: "i hope that i will go back to gerany and vin dere also!"

johnson: "he's tricky, but i'll teach him a lesson."

That was a great fight. this series is now tied up. now, staying in Texas lets go over to Houston.

butterfly1964 here at Sam Houston Coliseum in Houston, TX., for fight #2 between George Foreman and Lennox Lewis. Foreman weighed in at 231 and lennox came in at 246. the press conference was nothing special, just a simple answering of questions from the press. well, 70,000 fans jam packed the stadium. here's the tale of the tape!

George Foreman

age: 24
height: 6'-4"
weight: 231
reach: 81"
record: 38-0-0 (35ko)

Lennox Lewis

age: 28
height: 6'-5"
weight: 246
reach: 84"
record: 25-0-0 (22ko)

foreman didn't seem to train that much for this fight, he feels it will be a walk through. lewis comes out with a black hooded robe and jogs to the ring. foreman walks to the ring and and the screaming fans erupt the building! foreman is an 8 to 1 favorite.

buffer: "Ladies and gentleman, llllllllets get ready to rummbllllllleee! in the blue corner, from London, England, he's wearing white trunks with black trim, he stands six foot five, he weighs two-hundred forty-six pounds, the Lion, Lennox Leeewiis!(loud boos from the stadium) and in the red corner, from Houston, TX, he's wearing red trunks with the blue trim, he stands six-foot four, weighing two thirty-one, "Biiiiig" Geoooooooorge Foooooremaaaaaaaaan!(huge applause)"

foreman and lewis gives each other the stare as conn gives the instructions.

Round 1: Lewis boxes foreman and foreman is swarming into lennox. lennox is landing some shots and lennox quickly walks into a foreman haymaker and down he goes! the crowd goes wild as they feel that foreman will end the fight early. lewis is up at 3, and foreman continues to go after lennox, but he survives the round: both men are up at the warning bell.

Round 2: lennox is keeping away from george and is throwing the right hand at him. george is looking for that spot to throw his big shots. lennox fight a smart fight and cleanly wins this round: foreman is resting and lennox is ready for more.

Round 3: foreman is a little more patient in trying to corner lennox, but lennox uses his good defense to block the big blows and counter with some shots to foreman's head, but foreman walks through those punches and lands some of his own. lennox get a sneaky right hand in that hurts foreman a little, and then another right hand drops foreman for the first time in this tournament! the crowd is on their feet as foreman is up at 2. foreman is trading bombs with lennox and they do this until the round ends: lewis and foreman are both tired and they listen intently to their trainers.

Round 4: Foreman is chasing lennox down, but lewis plays it safe. lennox uses his jab and his right hand to keep foreman away and to score points. foreman lands some shots, but lennox is looking better right now and wins this round: foreman is a little tired, but lennox is pretty good.

Round 5: Foreman is now chasing lennox down as lennox tries to keep foreman away. lennox uses tricky parrying and head movement to make foreman miss when lewis is standing still. foreman lands some paralyzing body shots, but lennox takes them well. foreman is pressing the fight, but lennox is winning it. foreman gets more and more tired from chasing lennox as the bell rings: foreman looks real out of it as dick saddler is giving him instructions. lennox looks real relaxed as emanuel steward gives him a few pointers.

Round 6: Foreman is desperately looking for a knockout but is now real tired from throwing all those punches. he wasn't as conditioned as he was last time, and it's beginning to show now. lennox continues to pick his shots and keep foreman off-balance. durring clenches, foreman pounds the body to weaken lewis, but foreman's punches now don't have the power they did as in round one. lewis wins this round as well: lewis is a bit tired, but foreman looks like he's strung out on drugs!

Round 7: Lennox now realyzing that foreman is out of it, attacks foreman with some fast, hard jabs and then his big right hand that drops foreman. foreman barely makes the count at 9, and then lewis continues as foreman tries to fight back, but he looks slow as lewis picks him apart and hits him with a one-two that lays foreman on the canvas. foreman tries in vain to get up, but he is too tired and he falls back on the ropes. the fight is over! lewis wins by smashing ko!

michael buffer: "The winner by ko at 0:48 of the seventh round, llleeeeenoooox lewwwwiiiiis!"

the crowd is stunned! people can't believe what their watching. lewis exits as the winner and he has a few words to say.

lewis: "lennox lewis is going all the way. i knew he couldn't handle my skill and power."

foreman: "I took him too lightly. i ain't losing to this guy again!"

well, there you have it folks. but stay tuned there is more fights on it's way. let's take it over to Pittsburgh, PA! :boxing:

While there are a crazy number of knockouts for legendary fighters who probably haven't settled into a comfort zone with each other, this isn't going too poorly. I think a better option might have been to decide who won the best of 7, and highlight details or key moments of each series. Basically, you are going to be stuck describing the same styles over and over again, with perhaps a few changes in conditioning, or a random upset.

Otherwise, I applaud the effort. I also hold nothing against you for playing on my idea.

height: 6'-3"
weight: 210
reach: 80"

Sonny Liston

age: 28

weight: 213 3/4
reach: 84"
record: 28-1-0 (18ko)

Michael Buffer: "Ladies and gentlemen, llllllets get ready to ruumblllllllllee! in the blue corner from Philadelphia, PA, wearing white trunks with black trim, he stands six-foot-one, weighing two-thirteen and three quarters, The Big Bear, Clarles Sonnyyy Liistoonn! Liistoon!! and in the red corner, from easton, PA, wearing black trunks with white trim, he stands six-three, weighing two hundred ten pounds, The easton assassin, Laaaryyyyyyy Hoooooooolmesssss!! Hooooolmmessss!!(loud applause)

both men once again put the stare on each other as instructions are given from the referee.

Round 1: Holmes circles liston and is landing his jab well. liston throws his pile driver left jab and connects a few of them. liston is once again cutting off the ring well and lands to the body. holmes continues to ride that bicycle and stick and move on liston, however sonny is not bothered. holmes continues to stay away and land his jab nd occasionally a straight right: reddish is telling liston to be patient and to cut him off, and giachetti is telling holmes to keep on the moove and avoid trading.

Round 2: holmes keeps moving and landing occasioanal combinations. liston keeps pressuring, but holmes is moving well. holmes lands some shots that is scoring heavily for the judges. holmes is pulling from liston's punches pretty well. liston is a bit worried. he keeps throwinh his left hook and jab, but holmes either blocks them or side steps from them. this is holmes' round: holmes is in good shape and is quickly ready for action. liston is concerned.

Round 3: Holmes is continuing to fight off the backfoot, and liston is cutting the ring off occasionally. holmes is doing everything right and keeping liston away: liston and holmes are still fresh, and ready for action.

Round 4: holmes is a little flatfooted and is landing some combos that shake sonny. sonny is pressing, but at this point, holmes is just too fast for liston. liston tries to corner holmes, but holmes avoids the ropes. holmes boxes sharply. liston gets a few good shots in, but this is clearly holmes' round: liston's cornermen are doing something, but i can't figure out what it is. holmes is off his stool.

Round 5: Holmes is still circling and outboxing sonny, but charles closes the gap a little and manages to pound the body and land the left jab. liston is doing much better in cuttin off the ring and jabbing at holmes. the round is about even: liston noddes his head when reddish says something to him, and holmes is acting strange in his corner for some reason, like he is hurt or something.

Round 6: Holmes is blinking his eyes very rapidly for some reason and he covers up. it seems that a substance (probably moncel) got on liston's gloves and holmes now is half blind and defenseles, ala clay! liston's is now pouring it on, throwing a barrage of body shots. holmes tries to keep away but he can't see liston's blows where they com from, so he covers up on the ropes and throws shots from left and right, trying to keep liston away: liston goes back to his corner confident, and holmes still having problems with his eyes.

Round 7: Liston continues to cut off the ring and lands some punches that shakes holmes a little, but holmes is doing pretty good as well, holmes gains a little confidence and putts some good punches together, that worries sonny. sonny's eyes are swollen from holmes jab. some infighting is done, with liston dominated that phase of the fight, holmes still keeps away most of the time: liston is getting help with that eye. holmes looks ok now, his eyes look pretty clear.

Round 8: liston now is throwing big shots, but holmes keeps away from them. liston now thinks "how am i gonna hit him?" holmes looks like a new man now landing multiple jabs and staying on that bicycle. holmes is looking much better now, and liston looks somewhat foolish in the round: holmes is confident and sonny looks very concerned.

Round 9: liston is chasing down holmes, and the two get in a clinch. liston quickly tries to muster up some offense by landing some body shots and uppercuts, but holmes takes them well. holmes stays on the backfoot, landing some stinging punches that confuse liston. liston looks a bit better and he manages to make the round about even: liston is still worried and reddish is instructing him. holmes looks good and is well conditioned.

Round 10: Liston is trying to end the fight, but holmes dances away. holmes basically counters liston's shots. most of ht epunches thrown in this round are coming fom liston. holmes barely throws punches and wins the round almost on defense alone: giachetti is working on holmes eye, but liston's eye is cut, and the swelling is bigger.

Round 11: both men are a bit tired, but holmes toughs it out. holmes is now flatfooted, putting punches together. holmes gets off some stellar combinations that makes sonny think. sonny is throwing his jab a little, but mostly he is swinging wildly. holmes is cleanly winning the round and the fight: holmes now is very confident and ****y, and liston is tense and extremely concerned.

Round 12: Liston tries to land that one big bomb! holmes is caught a couple of times and is hurt. sonny lands a little more than usual, but holmes is also putting great punches together. holmes jabs at liston and this would remind one of clay-liston I on that fateful day (for liston) on february 25, 1964. liston looks bad now, throwing punches but missing by a mile. holmes wins this round big!: reddish is furious at liston and tells him to pick his shots. holmes is well poised.

Round 13: liston knows he's way behind and he has to score a knock out. again he is swinging wildly, but holmes is onto him. holmes is looking great as he doesn everthing right as he gets out of the corners easily and liston tires: liston looks mentally beaten.

Round 14: Holmes circles liston and pops his famous left jab. liston is not bothered, but jabs as well, and it suddenly becomes a jabbing battle. holmes is cornered once, and liston pounds his body. during infrequent clinches, liston is able to outmuscle larry somewhat: both men are tired, especially liston, who is now desperate for a knockout.

Round 15: Holmes is doing some infighting, and liston uses h superior strength to try and pond his body. liston throws a tremendous left hook that connacts, but holmes' granjite chin takes it. liston knows that if holmes is standing at the final bell, that he will lose. liston throws hard right hands to the face and most of them miss. 15 sec. remain and liston is now swinging wildly and swinging, and swiging and swinging as the bell rings!

There were no knockdowns. liston's eye was cut, and homes was puffed up. here is michael buffer!

buffer: "Judge Artie Aidala scores it 10-2-3 for holmes!(cheers) Judge Tony Castellano scores it 9-5-1 for holmes! (loud applause). referee mark conn scores it 11-2-2 for holmes, the winner by unanimous decision larry holmes!!"

the crowd is very pleased.

holmes: "I know i can wein this now. all i needed was to feel him out, that's all."

liston: "Well, i beat him once before, so i could beat him again."

And welcome to the Spectrum in Philadelphia, PA for fight number 2 between frazier and tyson. tyson destroyed frazier the last time and is a 6 to 1 favorite to win. frazie came in at a phenominal 204, and tyson was a lack luster 221. can fraizer turn the tide. Lets go to the press conference.

tyson: " i hope i will keep the momentum going and continue it at the garden."

frazier: "i'm even more focused than before. don't count me out!"

muhammad ali was banned from entering the building, so we wouldn't have the fiasco we had two days ago. here's the tale of the tape.

Joe Frazier

age: 27
height: 5'-11"
weight: 204
reach: 71"
record: 27-0-0 (23ko)

Mike Tyson

age: 21
height: 5'-11"
weight: 221
reach: 71"
record: 35-0-0 (31ko)

tyson comes out into the ring without a robe. and now frazier with a white robe with "SMOKIN' JOE" in orange on the back. here's michael buffer.

buffer: "Ladies and gentleman, llllllets get ready to rumblllllllllle! 15 rounds! introducing in the blue corner, from catskill, NY, wearing solid black trunks, standing five foot eleven, weighing two twenty-one, The Iron one, "irroooonn" miiiiike tyyyyyyyyyyysoooooon! and in the red corner(loud cheering) from Philadelphia, PA, wearing white trunks with the orange trim, he stands also 5'-11" weighing two hundreed foooourr, Smmmooookin" jooooooooooe fraaaaaaazieeeeeeeeerrrr!!"

mark conn: "i want a good clean fight. the standing 8-count is in effect for tonight. upon scoring a knockdown, go to the farthest neutral corner. three-knockdown rule is waived. any questions? shake hands."

80,000 fans are anticipating this rematch.

Round 1: both men come out trading blows. tyson's blows are harder, but both men takes them. frazier is pounding the body, and so is tyson, but not as relentlessly as frazier. joe throws thunderous body shots, and the a left hook, that tyson takes. tyson a firing back, but frazier keeps on coming! tyson throws a fast combo that drops frazier! hiwever, frazier is up at one, takes the mandatory 8-count, and is firing back. tyson is suprised and just tries to take frazier out early. frazie is relentless and doesn't take any crap from the intimidating tyson. the round ends: both frazier and tyson are up quickly and are ready for action.

Round 2: Tyson is bobbing and weaving, and so is tyson. frazier gets down low to unleash a left uppercut and the follows with a right hand and a philadelphia left hook. tyson is doing some inside work, but frazier is landing the more punishing blows: frazier is up and ready for action, while tyson needs some rest.

Round 3: Tyson is not using his famous head-movement as much, and frazier pounds tyson's midsection landing clean crisp laft hooksto the face as well. frazier now has tyson against the ropes as they both trade. after about 35 sec of trading. tyson is tired, but frazier works at a furious pace and gets some more shots in that jarrs tyson. tyson connacts with a left hook, but frazier takes it well. frazier trades with tyson as the round ends: frazier's bodypunching is paying great dividens as tyson is tired only after three rounds. rooney is yelling at tyson, telling him to stay focused.

Round 4: Tyson comes out like in the first round, and now it's a slugfest. they both hurt and stun each other, but after all that, frazier is stronger and he bulls his way into tyson's skull, via right hand. frazier continues his concentrated body attack and lands some hellacious right hands to tyson's jaw. tyson hits frazier back, by joe seems to e taking every punch that joe dishes out: yank is giving frazier instructions, and rooney tries to revive is fighter.

Round 5: tyson tries to end it with a vicious right, but tyson's stamina makes this shot less dangerous, and frazier is not bothered at all. tyson is throwing shots at frazier, but tyson is armweary, and the shots are not all that hard. at this point frazier is basiclly laughing at tyson's punches as they land. tyson is pummelled against tyhe ropes, and frazier is landing some hard, fast shots: tyson's eyes are puffed up, but so are frazier's.

Round 6: Tyson wants to end this in the worse way, frazier unleashes a left hook followed by an uppercut and a fluury of lefts and rights that stagger tyson. tyson throws a weak punch, frazier slips the punch and unleashes a crushing left hook ala ali and down goes tyson! tyson tries to get up, but unlike ali fails. the fight is over as yank hugs and congradulates frazier as the crowd erupts in cheers.

buffer: "the winner, by ko, at 0:38 seconds of the sixth round, "Smoookin" Joooooe Fraaaaazieeeeeerrr!!!"

frazier: "i'm happy that i won. i'll try to build upon that."

tyson: "I had a bad night, but i'll be back when i box in front of my fans in the garden!"

frazier and tyson shake hands, frazier consoling him.

Hi, and welcome to the Mechanics Pavilion in San Francisco, CA for fight #3 between james jeffries and the dancing master muhammad ali. ali had the uxury of fighting at home, and now jeffries will get the advantage. in the second fight, ali had trouble keeping away from jeffries, because he was not property trained. however, ali came in fantastic shape at 209 today, so you can be sure that ali will be at his best. jeffries came in great shape at 217. ali is still a 2 to 1 favorite, so jeffries still will be the underdog. at the post fight interview of the last fight, jeffries referred to ali as "clay", his old, quote on quote, slave name. ali wasn't too happy about that. well, here's the press conference before this fight.

jeffries: "You can't win, now that i've got the fans on my side. i'm gonna knock you out, clay!"

ali: "what did you just say?"

jeffries: "I said i'm gonna knock you out!"

ali: "No, I mean, what did you just call me?"

jeffries: "I called you clay!"

ali: "No you didn't, cause if you did, i would have to do this!(ali smacks jeffries in the head, and the two get into a scuffle.)"

well, there you have it. one of our reporters interviewed ali before the fight.

reporter: "What do you have in store tonight for jeffries?"

ali: "He's a racist crackah, and i'm gonna whup him, and after I'm gonna make him publicly say my name!!"

wow, ali sounded serious! no joking, there! will he carry through on his threat? here's the tale of the tape.

Jim Jeffries

age: 29
height: 6'-2"
weight: 217
reach: 76 1/2"
record 18-0-2 (14ko)

Muhamamd Ali

age: 25
height: 6'-3"
weight: 209
reach: 80"
record: 29-0-0 (23ko)

And Muhammad Ali is now bouncing into the ring and a barrage of boos could be heard from 55,000 fans. ali climbs in the ring and goes into his dancing routine. now jeffries comes into the ring, and he is being applauded as the fans cheer him on to beat ali. a noticeably old white man yells out to jeffries, "Jim Jeffries, knock that n****r out!" Many police are on hand to protect Ali from the angry white racists in the ring, especially some leading officials from organizations such as the Klu Klux Klan and the Skinheads! jeffries is now in the ring, and both men have their robes off. here is ring announcer michael buffer!

Michael Buffer: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Machanics Pavilion in Saaan Franciiso, CA! Lllllllllets get ready to ruumbllllllllle! 15 rounds in this first-round playoff. Introducing, from Houston, TX, wearing red trunks with white trim, he stands six foot three, he weighs two hundred nine pounds, the Greeatesst, Muhaamaad Aaaliii!(incessant boos from all corners of the stadium) And his opponent,(loud cheers) from San Francisco, CA, he's wearing blue trunks, he stands six foot two, he weighs two seventeen, the boiiiler maaakeeeeeeeer, Jaaaaaaaameessss Jeeeeeeeeeeeeefriiiieessssssss!!!!!(hysterical applause)

Now lets listen in on mark conn the referee.

Mark Conn: "protect yourself at all times. i want to to break when i tell you to break, in event of a knockdown, i want you to go to the farthest neutral corner until i tell you to come out. three knockdowns in any round, and the fight is automatically stopped. if a fighter is knocked down, he will take the mandatory eight-count. if knocked down, a fighter will be saved by the bell if the round ends before i finish the 10-count, any questions jeffries? and questions ali? ok, shake hands and come out fighting. good luck to both of you!" (Ali was talking to jim, putting the stare on him telling him how he was gonna whoop him and name calling him. ali looks like a man on a mission.)

The stage is set in the Mechanics Pavilion.

Round 1: Ali comes out dancing and get close to jeffries and throws a fluury of hooks and backs away. ali is much faster than he was in the last fight. ali keeps jabbing him and taunting him. jeffries throws some shots, but they all miss widely. ali dances the whole round and is untouched, while scoring well on jeffries: Ali goes back to his corner and opens his mouth wide to the crowd, showing off. jeffries is poised and ready.

Round 2: Ali comes out, but for the first minute ali doesn't throw a punch. jeffries throws about 30 punches and connects twice, but both those shots graze ali and doesn't affect him at all. ali continues to dance and then throws a triple jab and the n a right hand, followed by 5 hooks(left, right, left, right, left). jeffries is confused at the moment, and ali takes advantage. ali lands an overhand right, followed by two uppercuts and a left hook. jeffries takes the punches, but now he is worried. ali then dances for the rest of the round, blocking, pulling from, and slipping all 26 of jim's remaining punches he throws at muhammad: ali is listening to instructions from dundee, and jeffries listens to delaney as the warning bell rings.

Round 3: This is pretty much a repeat of the last round. ali dances and hits jeffires at will and taunts him, while jeffries still can't fing the elusive target. it seems that ali's tip-top conditioning makes him even faster than in the first fight! this is a cruising round for ali: ali doesn't even bother to sit on his stool. instead, he taunts the spectators and makes obsene gestures at the KKK attendants. jeffires is a bit tired.

Round 4: Ali is now flatfooted, but his speed is still the same. jeffries throws a barrage of punches, but misses them all. ali gets in a right hand, throws a double left jab, and hits james with an uppercut and two hooks. jeffries finally hits ali with a left hook, but ali follows that up with some uppercuts that stuns jim. ali then get up on his toes and dances. jeffries hits him a couple of times, but misses ali most of the time: ali still refuses to sit on his stool. jeffries eye is puffed up, and looks tired.

Round 5: Ali is up on his toes, and throws nothing but jabs the whole round. jeffries does a little better and corners ali and lads two body shots, but ali uses his superior strength to push jeffries away. ali still jabs and dances and wins the round: ali fnally sits on his stool, but he gets up about 30 sec. before the 10 sec. warning bell sounds. jeffries right eye is really swoollen and looks like it could be cut in about two more rounds.

Round 6: ali is now flatfooted and stands still and jeffries throws three right hands, a left jab, a left lead and another right hand and misses all of them as ali uses his slendid head-movement and avoids the punches ala terrell! ali is now at this point laughing at jeffries and the crowd is not apprieciative. loud boos could be heard. ali is talking to jeffries about his mom, and jeffries is mad and throws a vicious right hand that ali moves out of the way of and the punch hits the ropes, bounce back and hits jim in the face! ali busts out laughing, and jeffries is embarrassed as the round ends: Jeffries left and right eye is now swoolen, as ali stopped hitting the right eye in order to keep it from being cut and the fight being stopped early. Ali is still taunting the crowd, saying, "I'll take you on next, if you want. I'll take all of ya'll. Loud mouth crackah's!!" ali then tells dundee a joke and they both laugh at it. they are giddy and it looks like an easy night for muhammad ali.

Round 7: Ali still jabs and jeffries has no answer to this new breed of athlete. ali keeps circling and jabbing and then plants his feet and throwws a hard right hand that snaps jeffries head back and hurts the boilermaker! ali now has jeffries on the ropes and is pummeling him. jeffries is defenseless. ali, instead of trying to finish him, backs off and starts to dance. the crowd is puzzeled. ali dances and throws jabs as jeffries comes off the ropes. ali at this point is too fast for jeffries. ali keeps circling and landing hard shots that stun jeffries: jeffries looks pretty well spent, by now, but ali is as fresh as ever.

Round 8: ali is now flatfooted and is landing his jabs with added power. ali is talking to jeffries and has a serious look on his face. jeffries tries to fire back shots, but half of them miss, and the other half only graze ali. ali lands an uppercut and two hooks, and jeffries is hurt. ali's eyes are red like fire as he now lands some vicious shots to jeffries head and ali yells at jeffries saying, "YOU HONKEY WHITE BOY!! YOU'LL BE SORRY YOU STUPID ASS CRACKAH!!" and ali hits jeffires some more with a mad look on his face and says, "What's my name?" continulously he says this as he peppers jeffries with punches, and jeffries answer's back with a flurry but to little avail. ali keeps saying, "What's my name?" and jabs, hooks, or uppercuts jeffries and jeffries eyes are almost swollen shut! ali keeps doing this and when the bell rings, ali stands in the middle of the ring and yells, "WHAT'S MY NAME?! WHAT'S MY NAME?!!" as jeffries goes back to his corner: the crowd is now booing with a fury and dundee and delaney can barely hear themselves talking as they attempt to give their fighters some insruction.

Round 9: ali continues to jab at jeffries and yell "what's my name" at jim, and jim tries to amswer back, but ali avoids most of his punches. ali hurts jeffries with a right hand and follows up, but when it looks as if jeffries is done, muhammad, instead of ending the fight, he just dances around and waits for james to recover and then he peppers him with punches some more. ali is carrying the fight, and it seems like he doesn't want to knock jeffries out. ali continues to say, "What's my name?" and taunts jeffries, talking about his mom, dad, sister, aunt, wife, children, and jeffries himself as the round ends: ali doesn't sit on his stool and jeffries right eye is cut, but no visible blood is seen.

Round 10: ali comes out dancing, and jabs, and each jab is puntuated by, "What's my name?"! he does this for about two minutes and they get into a clinch, and during the clinch ali says in jim's ear, "What's my name? What's my name, fool?" and jeffries whimpers out, "Muhammad Ali!" ali says, "say what?" jim amswers back, "Muhammad Ali, Muhammad Ali!" Ali then pushes jeffries off and contiues his jabbing and the occasional one-two and saying "what's my name", periodically. Ali convincingly wins this round: jeffries needs some smelling salts to revive him, and ali rests a little, but still fells pretty good.

Round 11: Ali comes out and puts his right hand around his back and keeps it there, only using his left hand. he keeps jabbing and saying, "what's my name" and jabbing for the first half of the round, and for the second half of the round, ali switches hands and puts his left hand behind his back and uses only his right hand, throwing right crosses and over hand rights, not to mention the occasional right uppercut. jeffries throw punches, but ali is able to pull from all of them: dundee and ali casually talk in their corner, and delaney is trying desperately to keep that right eye closed, because some blood is now visible.

Round 12: Ali comes out dancing, and jeffries and whenever ali has jeffries hurt he back away and goes into a dnacing routine. ali is now potshoting at jeffries as jeffries can barely see. ali has his way with jim and he throws an uppercut that staggeres james, but ali just does nothing for the last forty seconds: ali is a bit tired, but he is still strong, and jeffries looks like a lamb ready for the slaughter.

Round 13: ali is dancing and playing with jeffries and is now in a relaxed mood. jeffries looks done but is fighting back and manages to corner ali and pound away at the midsection. jeffires get in a couple of right hands and a few left hooks. ali jabs and lands the occasional straight right. jeffires is looking better landing more punches, but ali still looks great, dancing and jabbing and ali hurts jefries again, and then dances away: ali needs some rest, and jeffries is really tired and delaney is trying to close that cut.

Round 14: Ali comes out jabbing and continues to say, "what's my name?" the crowd is in stunned silence as they watch their hero being pummeled into submission with ease, not to mention humiliated and humbled. you could hear a pin drop, as ali throws a fast flurry that hurts jeffries and then ali throws a right hand and backs off and dances away from jeffries: ali is poised and ready for action as the crowd boos. jeffries is reluctant, but he presses on.

Round 15: Ali uses his jab and stright right, and talks to jeffries, saying, "What's my name?", over and over again. jeffries lands about three punches in the whole round. ali continues on the offensive and lands some nice shots, and jeffries looks like he's ready to pack it in. both men clinch a couple of times, as ali talks to him both times, ties him up, and pushes him off. ten seconds remain as ali throws two laft jabs and dances. the bell rings. the fight is over! ali raises his hands to the crowd as if he's won. jeffires hangs his head in shame as both eyes are cut.

neither fighter was down, and jeffries was cut in both eyes. ali's face was unmarked. we await the decision, here's michael buffer.

michael buffer: "Judge Artie Aidala scores it 15-0-0 for Ali! (BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! !!!!) Judge Tony Castellano scores it 15-0-0 for Ali!(BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! !!!!!!!!!!) Referee Mark Conn scores it 15-0-0 for Ali! Winner by unanimous decision, Muhammaad Aliii!!(BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)"

An overwhelming victory for Muhammad Ali. It looks like the chance of Jeffries winning are next to nothing. If Ali wins the next fight, jeffries is automatically eliminated!

Ali: "It's over!! This big bum is done for! IIIII AAAAAM THEEEE GREATESSTTTT!!!!!"

Jeffries: "I wish ali had ended the fight sooner, than me out there getting a beating like that. he's a great champion. he's even faster than jack johnson!"

ali is now walking to his dressing room as police surround him guarding from the hostile racist crowd that boo him all the way to the dressing room. A kkk member takes out a knife looking to stab ali, but a policeman restrains him. ali looks over at the klan member with the knife and sticks out his toungue at him in amusement. now jeffries leave's the ring and the crowd shows it's support by it's loud applause.

Well, there you have it folks. Ali comes on jeffries territory and embarrasses him. this whole fight looked like a scene out of ali-terrell, lol! can ali eliminate jeffries on his own terf? find out on saturday! this is butterfly1964 saying goodbye, and good day from The Mechanics Pavilion in San Francisco, CA. now, staying in California, lets send the cameras over about 100 miles to Oakland, CA! :boxing:

ali: "No, I mean, what did you just call me?"

jeffries: "I called you clay!"

ali: "No you didn't, cause if you did, i would have to do this!(ali smacks jeffries in the head, and the two get into a scuffle.)"

this is butterfly1964 and welcome to the Arcadia Pavilion in Oakland, CA for fight #3 between Max Baer and Jack Dempsey. Dempsey is a 5 to 1 favorite. can baer shake off the effects of a near death experience from dempsey's thunder and lightning, or will it be business as usaul for the manassah mauler. Baer was in better shape today at 208, and dempsey was 189. the press conference was about average excitement, so lets just go straight to the fight! here's the tale of the tape.

Max Baer

age: 25
height: 6'-2 1/2"
weight: 208
reach: 80"
record: 40-7-0 (30ko)

Jack Dempsey

age: 28
height: 6'-1"
weight: 189
reach: 77"
record: 61-4-9 (49ko)

dempsey is in the ring now and a few cheers could be heard. dempsey is wearing a white robe. now baer comes in and the crowd goes wild! here's michael buffer.

buffer: "Lllllllllllets get ready to rumbllllllllllleeee!! fighting in the blue corner, from Manassah, CO, he wears solid black trunks, he stands 6'1, he weighs one eighty-nine, the manassah mauler, Jaack Dempseeey! and in the red corner, from Livermore, CA, wearing white trunks, he stands 6'2 and one-half inch, weighing twoooo-oooh-eeeight, the Livermore Larupper, Maaaaaaaaaax Baaaaaaaeeeeeeeeeeeerr!! (loud cheers)

both men listen to mark conn's instructions.

Round 1: Both men trade blows. dempsey ducks under a punch and throws a tremendous uppercut that hurts max. max somehow recovers and hits dempsey with a right hand that drops dempsey! dempsey gets up quickly and trades with baer and baer goes down. dempsey sees blood and continues to knockdown max four more times! the round ends as baer is wobbly-legged: dempsey and baer lisen to instructions from their trainers.

Round 2: dempsey continues him onslaught and floores max again. this time max gets up and retaliales. dempsey is flored by a hellacious right! dempsey gets up and max pours it on. max drops dempsey two more times, and the second time dempsey is slow in getting up. they get into a clinch, and the round ends: dempsey needs some reviving and baer is poised and ready.

Round 3: Dempsey croutches low, but to no avail as baer floores him again! the crowd is on their feet as they watch dempsey go down again. dempsey get up nd knocks baer down 11 times! the crowd is tunned and silent as they watch their fighter go down from a barrage of dempsey left hooks. baer barely holds on, but he survives the round: baer looks better than he should and dempsey looks ready for the kill!

Round 4: dempsey continues his onslaught knocking down baer again! baer gets up and tries to tie dempsey up, but dempsey is strong in there. dempsey hits to the body and throws a fast comination and baer goes down again! this time baer is mad. he gets up and retaliates. a barrage of punches from the larupper from livermore hurts dempsey, and a right hand knocks dempsey through the ropes and clean out of the ring ala firpo! dempsey landed on the sportswriter's desk, and they all take dempsey and push him back into the ring. dempsey is rubbery-legged, but somehow, he survives the round: dempsey is hurt and confused, but when the warning bell sounds he looks ok.

Round 5: both men get into a clinch, and dempsey does some body work. dempsey's right stun baer, and his left hook sends max down. baer get's up and dempsey throws an uppercut, that sends max to the canvas for good!

buffer: "The winner at 1:13 of the fifth round via ko, Jaaack Deempseey!!"

Manager Doc Hearns congradulate dempsey as a few boos can be heard. this was probably the best fight so far in this tournament!! now for the east fights. lets stroll over to Cincinnati, OH. :D

There have been no knockdowns. marciano had a cut on his right eye, and holyfield was puffed up in the right as well. if there is a draw, then the fighters will have to go into overtime, which means that each fighter will have to fight another round to determine the winner. here is michael buffer!

buffer: "Judge Artie Aidala scores it 8-6-1 for holyfield! judge Tony Castellano scores it 8-7 for holyfield! (boos could be heard) Referee Mark Conn scores it 10-5 holyfield, winner by unanimous decision, Evandeeeeeeer Hooolyfieeeeeld!!"

holyfield: "I'm glad i evened it up. and when i get back home, i hope i could keep the momentum going."

marciano: "it was a tough fight. i'll try harder next time."

the crowd is not pleased. well, holyfield even's the score, so this is butterfly1964 saying good bye from Boston Garden. once again, the final scores are, Part1-ali tko9, Part2-dempsey ko2, Part3-louis ko6, and Part4-holyfield ud15.

yea ok

where was the famous Marciano combo

two body shots, right uppercut/hook and then a cross

now doubht that would have KO'd holyfeild

no way does Holyfeild out muscle Marciano as you said that fight would not got that way the only thing you had right was holyfeild boxing around Marciano---well at least he won the first time, i'm just saying that it seems unlikely that holyfeild wouldn't get ko'd well atleast if Holyfeild were to win thats the way it would happen

PTS for you just for typing so much

btw Ali not getting hit by Jefferies 15-0 UD come on...jeez

i mean i understand ou like Ali and you may not know that much about jefferies but if i'm correct Ali has never gone 15 rounds without getting hit at least once, especially if it were a prime jefferies (who btw beat him in a computer fight).

come on

most of the other ones i agree with though

good job beside those

well i'm gunna start reading this thread more oftne

http://www.kontaktrunde.de/boxing/charles.jpg vs. http://www.hickoksports.com/images/louis_joe.jpg

butterfly1964 here, at Cincinnati Gardens in Cincinnati, OH to bring you fight #3 between Ezzard Charles and Joe Louis. Louis pretty much dominated the first two fights, but how will it go down tonight? alot of things can happen in a series, so don't count Ez out on this one. earlier i interviewed charles.

butterfly1964: "Well, how are you gonna have an answer to louis this time?"

ezzard charles: "Well, first off, i'm in great shape. I'll try to counter joe's jab with a right hand, like what max schmeling did. Also i'm fighting in front of my fans this time, not louis'. so the crowd will be a big boost for me."

butterfly1964: "What about louis' power. How will you deal with that?"

charles: "I'll just keep away from him as long as possible and try not to end up with a clinch with him."

butterfly1964: "Mr. Charles, thank you for your time, and i wish you luck in this fight."

charles: "Thank you very much!"

well, charles seems confident. louis is now a 10 to 1 favorite and a cinch to win. louis was in great shape as usual at 206 1/2, and charles was 185. here's the tale of the tape.

Ezzard Charles

age: 29
height: 6'
weight: 185
reach: 73"
record: 61-5-1 (35ko)

Joe Louis

age: 28
height: 6'-2"
weight: 206 1/2
reach: 76"
record: 56-1-0 (50ko)

And now joe louis is coming into the ring wearing a silver robe. a few cheers could be heard. and those cheers now are getting louder and louder as Ezzy himself comes into view! the crowd goes wild as the hometown boy takes off his purple robe. here is michael buffer!

michael buffer:"Ladies and gentlemen, lllllllllllets get ready to rumblllllllleeee!!! In the blue corner, wearing silver trunks with white trim, from Detroit, MI, he stands 6-feet two, he weighs two ooh six and a half, the brown bomber, joooee loouuiiss! and in the red corner, from Cincinnati, OH, wearing solid purple trunks, standing six feet, he weighs 185, the cincinnatti cobra, ezzaaaarrrd chaaaarless!! (loud applause from the entire stadium).

Mark Conn: "protect yourself at all times. i want to to break when i tell you to break, in event of a knockdown, i want you to go to the farthest neutral corner until i tell you to come out. three knockdowns in any round, and the fight is automatically stopped. if a fighter is knocked down, he will take the mandatory eight-count. if knocked down, a fighter will be saved by the bell if the round ends before i finish the 10-count, any questions? ok shake hands.

both men are ready.

Round 1: louis is on the hunt, and charles stay's away. louis jabs, and charles counters. this happens about 5 times, and then louis figures out what charles is trying to do. louis then fakes a jab and then charles attempts to counter, but louis slips the punch and reverse counters with a right cross that shakes charles. louiis folows up with his famous fluury and down goes charles!! the crowd is on their feet as charles ets up at the count of 7 and takes the eight-count. louis goes after charles with a vengeance, but charles survives the round: charles is shaken up and arcel needs to revive him, but louis is ready for action.

Round 2: charles tries to stay away, but is still skeken up from the previous round. louis measures and drops him with a crushing right. charles is slow in getting up at 9, and louis comes in to finish with an uppercut and two smashing hooks! the fight is over as the crowd is stunned in awe of louis destructive abilities.

buffer: "The winner by a knockout at 0:39 sec of the second round, Jooee Loouiiss!"

the crowd shows it's support for charles, as louis takes a 3-0 lead in the series. if charles loses the next fight, ezzard is automatically eliminated!

Louis: "Ezzard is a very good fighter, and he gave me some problems in the series. I'm just glad that I won."

Charles: "I'll have to dig deep next time, but I know I can beat him!"

what a demolition by the brown bomber. it just doesn't get any better than this. Tune in for fight #4 on saturday to see if louis eliminates charles right here in Cincinnati Gardens. now let's send the cameras over to Atlanta, GA.

butterfly1964 here, and welcome to the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, GA for fight #3 between holyfield and marciano. holyfield tied the series up at 1-1, but will marciano turn the tide? marciano came in again at 185, and holyfield was 210.

and marciano is now coming into the ring and mixed cheers and boos could be heard. and holyfield is in the ring and a loud roar of applause is heard! both men looked hungry and determined. here's the tale of the tape.

Evander Holyfield

age: 28
height: 6'-2"
weight: 210
reach: 77"
record: 25-0-0 (21ko)

Rocky Marciano

age: 30
height: 5'-11"
weight: 185
reach: 67"
record: 45-0-0 (40ko)

let's listen to ring announcer michael buffer.

buffer: "welcome to the geooorgia dooome, for this eastern matchup. Lllllllllets get ready to ruumbllllllleee! in the blue corner, from Brockton, Massachusetts, wearing white trunks with black trim, he stands 5'-11", he weighs one eighty-five, the Brockton Blockbuster, Roockyy Marciaanoooo! (a few boos could be heard) and in the red corner, from Atlanta, GA, he's wearing black trunks with white trim, he stands 6'-2, he weighs two ten, The Real Deal, Evaaaaaaandeeeeeeeer Hooooolyfiiiieeeeeeld! 15 rounds!"

as conn gives instructions, both men have a hungry look on their face.

Round 1: holyfield is on his toes, and marciano is in his croutch. holyfield lands his jab well, and marciano pounds the body when he can. both men now are trading punches and holyfield ties marciano up with his strength. holy boxes around m,arciano and looks pretty good.

Round 2: holyfield continues to stick out that jab and put some combinations together. marciano lands some good shots to evander and pounds the body when available. holy jabs and jabs, and tries to keep away. marciano is looking to close the gap, so he could use his leverage to punish evander. holyfield, though fights a smart fight.

Round 3: marciano finds his target slightly easier and is looking better. marciano does some inside work, while holy uses his strength to muscle rocky. holy's punches are puffing up the face of rocky. rocky still comes towards his opponent, and he lands some huge shots, but holy's chin takes them well. holy continues to work on that eye.

Round 4: holyfield is boxing well, landing his jab and making rocky miss. rocky looks sloppy and wild now. holyfield is sticking to his game plan and staying away. marciano is still pressing, but holyfield is a tad-bit faster. holyfield get consideration from the judges on this one.

Round 5: rocky's eye is now cut from evander's punches and evander still uses his jab and straight right to worsen it. rocky is landing better shots now, but his vision is slightly impaired. holy works on that cut, which is now bleeding steadily. marciano hurts holyfield with an unexpected suzie q, but he survives.

Round 6: in this round they get into cliches and both do some inside work. holy works the body and eye, and rocky works the body and arms. rocky's face looks pretty messy, but he fights on. holyfield is not hurting rocky, but rocky looks like he's in a sorry state indeed. as rocky eye continue to pour blood from every holyfield punch, rocky still presses the fight and lands some body shots that holy is able to take.

Round 7: marciano now goes after holy, but holy is too fast for him. holyfield is landing some good combinations and rocky face is bloody. holy continues to work on that eye and rocky tries to end the fight with one big punch. mark conn looks at that eye and can't take it anymore, so he stops the fight.

buffer: "the winner by tko on an eye cut, at 1:23 of the seventh round, evvvvandeeeeeer, hoooolyfiieeeeeld!!!"

the crowd is pleased. and so that is the end of today's matchups. tune in on friday, for the continuation of this first round, once again, our final scores, Part1-ali ud15, Part2-dempsey ko5, Part3-louis ko2, and Part4-holyfield tko7! this is butterfly1964 saying goodbye from Atlanta, GA!!! :boxing:

And, welcome to the Volkstaad Poststadion in Berlin, Germany for fight #3 between schmeling and johnson. three days ago, schmeling pulled off the upset. but will johnson come back?i had a chance to interview johnson myself.

buttefly: "Well, Mr. Johnson, what do you have in store for tonight?"

johnson: "He's gonna regret he ever layed a hand on me. i'll embarrass him in front of his fans!"

well, there you have it. johnson seems ready and he came in at 205. schmeling was 190. here's the tale of the tape.

Max Schmeling

age: 26
height: 6'-1"
weight: 190
reach: 76"
record: 44-4-3 (32ko)

Jack Johnson

age: 32
height: 6'-1"
weight: 205
reach: 74"
record: 67-6-10 (49ko)

jack johnson now is in sight ring, walking casually down the aisle. he is now in the ring moving around and practicing on his footwork. a few boos could be heard. and now amax schmeling is in the ring and 70,000 fans go wild! both men seem well prepared and in excellent condition.

michael buffer: "ladies and gentleman, lllllets get ready to rumbllllllee! in the blue corner, from Galveston TX, wearing gray trunks, standing 6'-1", weighing 205, the Galveston Giaaant, Jaaack Johnsooon!! and in the red corner, from Brandenburg, Germany, wearing white trunks with black trim, standing also 6'-1" weighing 190, The Black Uhlan of the Rhiiiine, Maaaaaax Schmeeeeeeliiiiiing!!!(loud cheers)"

both men look determined as referee mark conn gives instructions.

Round 1: both men are flatfooted. johnson lunges in with a left jab, and schmeling counters with a right hand. johnson jabs and then with his cat-like reflexes hits schmeling with a right hand and then ties him up before max has a chance to counter. johnson keeps doing this and then he unleashes some fast combinations that hurt max. max is now against the ropes as the crowd is on their feet. schmeling is hurt! johnson keeps on him throwing hard shots to the body and head as the bell rings: schmeling is slow in walking to his corner, and johnson looks ready.

Round 2: johnson quickly goes after the still hurt schmeling. johnson gets some good body shots, and schmeling is still defenseless to johnson's fast, hard blows.shmeling succumbs and goes down. he is up at 7, and johnson walks in and throws a blockbuster right hand that drops schmeling and snaps his head. schmeling is up and johnson continues. johnson follows up with some hard body shots, and some head work. johnson ties schmeling up from answering back, and johnson then pushes him off, measures and thriws an uppercut and a right hand and schmeling is down! the bell rings and schmeling is saved by the bell: schmeling looks in pretty bad shape and johnson knows it.

Round 3: Schmeling throws a wild shot that johnson blocks and johnson countrs with a left and then a right and then an uppercut, followed by a cross and schmeling is down for good! the crowd is stunned as they watch their fighter get destroyed!

buffer: "The winner by a ko at 0:17 seconds of the third round, Jaaack Joohnsoon!!"

johnson: "I knew what I had to do, and I did it."

schmeling: "I wasn't expecting that. he was all over me. I never had a chance."

wow, what a shocker in Germany! can johnson with his commanding 2-1 lead take it all the way? find out, sunday! now, staying out of the united states, let's go over to London England. :cool:

I don't think that these fights are that realistic, and the series is rather long; as indicating who won the series, plus spelling out details of the first and last fight would have been more appropriate (and less time consuming).

I am going to give major props to butterfly1964, however, for taking the time and effort to not get bored with any of the series' in question, and continuing to stay dedicated to this project until it's finished.

Breaking news on a side interview of Muhammad Ali during one of the Frazier vs. Tyson bouts:

reporter: "Muhammad, what do you think of these competitors? Both have an awkward style, and can come at you with explosive power and difficult angles to gauge. Also, this youngster Tyson has trigger fast hands, and Smokin' Joe knows you really well."

Ali: "Joe Frazier is nothing but a bum, and a gorilla, and I'll mess him up worse than I did in Manilla!"

reporter: "That is fair to assume, as you know Joe Frazier pretty well; what about Tyson? What if he wins against Frazier? You've never faced someone with his style and early-round aggression before."

Ali: "I wrote a little poem about that punk, and I'll spell it out for you right now:

"If Tyson thinks he can beat me
He's in for something sweet
When he goes to chomp my ear
He'll find he's got nothing to eat!
laughter

"Cuz I'll be slipping, I'll be jabbing
I'll be delivering all the blows
He'll wanna quit in the corner when
I put his gold teeth in his nose!
more laughter

"Mike was never Iron
Mike was never great
He's a wannabe Muslim
Who ruined his own fate

"When the bell rings and I'm finished with his face
He'll want to retire at last
Baby Mike Tyson will admit
I'm the greatest of the present, future, and past!"
cheers

reporter: "There you have it, folks. Musical verse from the Louisville Lip, as always expected! Tune in for the upcoming fights, reported by BoxingScene's own butterfly1964!"

butterfly1964 here at New London Arena, Millwall, London, for fight #3 between lennox lewis and george foreman. it's tied up, but can foreman bounce back?

there was nothing special about the press conference, so lets go straight to the fight. here's the tale of the tape.

Lennox Lewis

age: 28
height: 6'-5"
weight: 244
reach: 84"
record: 25-0-0 (22ko)

George Foreman

age: 24
height: 6'-4"
weight: 218

record: 38-0-0 (35ko)

it looks like foreman is in great shape for the fight. and now foreman's in the ring and some boos could be heard. foreman is wearing a black robe. lewis comes out and 50,000 fans go wild! lewis is wearing a white-hooded robe.

michael buffer: "Ladies and gentleman, llllllllets get ready to rummbllllllleee! in the blue corner, from Houston, TX, he's wearing black trunks with the white trim, he stands six-foot four, weighing two eighteen, "Biiig" Geooorge Fooremaaan!(loud boos from the stadium) and in the red corner, from London, England, he's wearing white trunks with black trim, he stands six foot five, he weighs two-hundred forty-four pounds, the Lioooooooon, Lennoooooooooox Leeeeeeewiiiiiiiiiiiis!(huge applause)"

Round 1: Both men circle each other, and jab. foreman lands a right hand that lewis takes. foreman gets lewis on the ropes and pummels him. foreman is landing clean wild shots on lewis, and lewis is holding on. foreman then gets him on the ropes again, and tees off once more until the round ends.

Round 2: Lewis tries to land some punches, but foreman blocks them and lands a vicious right hand that drops lewis. lewis cannot move as he is counted out. the fight is over!

buffer: "The winner at 0:31 seconds of the second round by a knockout, George Fooreman!"(loud boos can be heard and also some dropped jaws can be seen)

foreman: "i know i can win now. he can't handle my power. i can't lose to this guy again."

well there you have it folks. foreman wins a two round demolition and goes up 2-1 in the series. now lets head back to the united states to philadelphia, PA. :cool:

Welcome to Convention Hall in Philadelphia, PA for fight #3 between liston and holmes. the series is tied up at 1-1. who will take the 2-1 lead? here's the tale of the tape.

Sonny Liston

age: 28
height: 6'-1"
weight: 213
reach: 84"
record: 28-1-0 (18ko)

Larry Holmes

age: 30
height: 6'-3"
weight: 211
reach: 80"
record: 36-0-0 (27ko)

now larry holmes is in the ring and a few cheers could be heard. and now charles sonny liston is in the ring and the crowd erupts with applause! they both are poised and ready. here is michael buffer.

Michael Buffer: "Ladies and gentlemen, llllllets get ready to ruumblllllllllee! in the blue corner from easton, PA, wearing red trunks with white trim, he stands six-three, weighing two hundred eleven pounds, The easton assassin, Laaaryyyy Hooolmesss!! Hooolmmess!! and in the red corner, from Philadelphia, PA, wearing white trunks with black trim, he stands six-foot-one, weighing two-thirteen, The Big Bear, Chaaaaaarles Sooooonnyyyyyy Liiiiiistoooonn! Liiiistoooooon!!(loud applause)

they are both ready.

Round 1: both men circle, with liston as the agressor. liston uses his jab and so does holmes. liston gets holmes on the ropes and works the body and head. holmes does some inside work as well, and he uses his jab to try to keep liston away. both men look pretty good as the round ends.

Round 2: liston is still pressing forward, keeping holmes on the run. holmes throws a right hand, but liston parries it well. liston is landing some good shots that holmes takes. the crowd is egging liston on to fight a good fight and liston feels the confidence growing as he cuts off the ring uses his jab and then throws a left hook that hurts holmes. holmes shakes it off, but cannot fire back as the round ends.

Round 3: holmes is still uses his jab and tries to box around liston, but he realizes that liston is too fast and he is being cornered often. so holmes decided to lay on the ropes and try to tire liston out. liston pounds his midsection and tries to take him out. holmes is hurt, but this enables him to surviv the round, although he feels a little pain as he walks back to his corner.

Round 4: liston corner holmes, and holmes tries to tire liston out, but liston's precision punching does not work as it would against foreman, and holmes can't take it anymore. holmes is dropped by a vicious left hook to the liver! holmes gets up and tries to survive the round, but is defenseless and liston's right hand drops him again with a vengeance. holmes now is trying to stay away and lasts the round.

Round 5: Again, holmes is trying to play keep away, but liston closes the gap. liston smells blood as he throws some hard, fast combinations. holmes looks out on his feet as he is getting pummeled. mark conn steps him and stops it!

buffer: "The winner at 2:00 of the fifth round via tko, chaaaarless soonyyyyyyy liiiiiistooooooooooonn!" the crowd is very happy! now liston takes a 2-1 lead in the series. now lets head over to New York City! :cool:

Round 2: tyson is landing some good shots, and frazier is still warming up. tyson begins to work the body in an attampt ot weaken frazier. frazier tries to stay away, but tyson is right on him. frazier still comes forward and gets under tyson's jab and lands an uppercut and a left hook. but this is still tyson's round.

Round 3: frazier is still pressing forward, and tyson comes out and lands some good shots, but frazier is now working the body and tyson is a bit worried. tyson still bobbs and weaves and comes forward and lands a tremendous uppercut that drops frazier! at this point frazier is holding on. the crowd is on their feet as their fighter attempts to come away with a win. tyson staggers frazier as the round ends.

Round 4: frazier is still fighting back and is pressing, only to get dropped again. frazier throws a prayer of a left hook that catched tyson flush and now tyson is staggered. frazier smells blood and tries to finish, but tyson recovers as the round ends.

Hi, and welcome to the Mechanics Pavilion in San Francisco, CA for fight #4 between james jeffries and the dancing master muhammad ali. ali will try to eliminate jeffries tonight, and jeffries will try to stay alive. ali is a 20-1 favorite to win. ali was 214 today, jeffries was 219.

ali: "This bum's done for. i'm just as good as won this fight. if this bum goes over seven rounds with me, i will leave the country and not return to the united states for 30 days, and that's final!"

well, there you have it folks. ali is now bouncing down the aisle into the ring and is warming up. now jeffries is in the ring abd the crowd goes wild. ali is once again protected by the police.

Michael Buffer: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Machanics Pavilion in Saaan Franciiso, CA! Lllllllllets get ready to ruumbllllllllle! 15 rounds in this first-round playoff. Introducing, from Houston, TX, wearing white trunks with blue trim, he stands six foot three, he weighs two hundred fourteen pounds, the Greeatesst, Muhaamaad Aaaliii!(incessant boos from all corners of the stadium) And his opponent,(loud cheers) from San Francisco, CA, he's wearing white trunks with black trim, he stands six foot two, he weighs two nineteen, the boiiiler maaakeeeeeeeer, Jaaaaaaaameessss Jeeeeeeeeeeeeefriiiieessssssss!!!!!(hysterical applause)

Now lets listen in on mark conn the referee.

Mark Conn: "protect yourself at all times. i want to to break when i tell you to break, in event of a knockdown, i want you to go to the farthest neutral corner until i tell you to come out. three knockdowns in any round, and the fight is automatically stopped. if a fighter is knocked down, he will take the mandatory eight-count. if knocked down, a fighter will be saved by the bell if the round ends before i finish the 10-count, any questions jeffries? and questions ali? ok, shake hands and come out fighting. good luck to both of you!"

Round 1: ali jabs jeffries and is throwing good combinations. jefries is throwing and missing, and ali is taking advantage. somehow, jeffries lands a vicious right hand, and ali holds on. when they are separated, there is blood on jeffries' left arm, and it's coming from ali's nose! ai rubs his nose with his gloves and he sees the blood on his gloves. ali has to be more careful. jeffries lands a few more shots, but ali's constant jabs and right hands are enough to win the round.

Round 2: Ali is now flatfooted, but his speed is still the same. jeffries throws a barrage of punches, but misses them all. ali gets in a right hand, throws a double left jab, and hits james with an uppercut and two hooks. jeffries finally hits ali with a left hook, but ali follows that up with some uppercuts that stuns jim. ali then get up on his toes and dances. jeffries hits him a couple of times, but misses ali most of the time and the round ends.

Round 3: Ali's constant jabbing and other punches have puffed up jeffries eyes. ali keeps doing this and jeffries has no answer for this. ali is throwing some hard, stinging punches and jeffries could feel them. ali then dances and keeps jabbing and jabbing, working on that eye. ali wins the round convincingly.

Round 4: Ali still is doing well, putting punches together and landing his left jab just like a piston. jefries is now cut, and ali is working on that eye some more. they get into a few clinches, and ali is able to hold his own. near the end of the round, ali is hit with some blockbuster punches, and ali is holding on. jeffries then pounds away at every part of his body. ali is stunned, but holds on as the round ends!

Round 5: Ali comes out for round 5 after the shock of his life. he keeps on the offensive, landing his punches, and now jeffries is cut again, and it is a really bad cut indeed. ali keeps working on it and busting it up some more, but ali predicted a seventh round stoppage, so ali is carrying the fight until that time. he is now taunting jeffries trying to make him look small. jim looks terrible with that cut.

Round 6: ali comes out after his manager herbert muhammad tells ali to cut out the funny business. ali then ontinues to jab and jab and jab and one-two, and on-two, and one-two-three jeffries to death. aliis doing well, landing his jab and miving out of the way of jeffries punches. ali is moving well, and boxing sharply, just as the round ends, ali sees a pretty lady in the audience and looks at her momentarily, and jeffries takes the advantage and lands a textbook left hook that sends ali into the ropes and onto the canvas, ala henry cooper! the crowd is going wild! the bell rings. and ali is up at three: dundee is trying to revive ali and ali doesn't know where he is. dundee is really giving his fighter a good talking to. ali is virtually out on his stool. ali's glove isn't torn, so that won't work. but ali has a slightly better chin now than he did in '63, so by the warning bell, ali is alright.

Round 7: ali comes out and is mad. he does not like the humiliation of being on the canvas. ali storms out and lands some shots and now the eye is really cut and bleeding. the crowd is getting more and more silent as they watch ali stagger the done fighter, and follow up with some hard punches, and down goes jeffries for the first time in this tournament! jeffries gets up at the count of 6, and a quick ali fluury sends him down again, this time for good! ali makes his prediction stick and has won the first round in four straight fights!

buffer: "the winner at 2:01 of the seventh round via ko, muhammaaaad aaliiiiii!" the crowd is silent and starts to file out quickly.

ali has won the first round and he will face either george foreman or lennox lewis next.

ali: "i'm coming after you george foreman, you slow moving mummy!"

now, lets go over to oakland for our next fight!

Round 1: charles is on his toes, and louis is pressing forward. charles gets in a light right hand, and louis counters. louis then comes forward jabbing and then unleashes a blockbuster right hand that hurts charles. louis then measures and throws a flurry of left and right hooks and down goes charles! charles is up at 4, and louis then walks in and snaps charles neck with a right hand and charles lets out a scream that could be heard in the entire stadium as he goes down again! charles is slow in getting up and then louis measures again and charles tries to stay away, because he knows that if he goes down again, the fight is automatically stopped. louis jabs and jabs and charles is fighting back with some jabs, but louis blocks them with the palms of his gloves, and then continues on the attack. louis then hits charles with a left hook and down he goes for the last time! charles gets up at 7, but it doens't matter, the fight is stopped! louis has a slight grin on his face as he goes back to his corner.

michael buffer: "The winner at 0:59 seconds of the first round, and the winner of this series, Jooooe Louuuiiss!"

Louis now moves on to the second round and he will fight either joe frazier or mike tyson.

louis blazed his trail, just like ali did in the west. i may be jumping the gun a little, but i feel that these two may be the finalists!! well, now lets turn the cameras over to Atlanta, GA! :boxing:

Round 4: Foreman is chasing lennox down, but lewis plays it safe. lennox uses his jab and his right hand to keep foreman away and to score points. foreman lands some shots, but lennox is looking better right now and wins this round: foreman is a little tired, but lennox is pretty good.

Round 5: Lennox now realyzing that foreman is out of it, attacks foreman with some fast, hard jabs and then his big right hand that drops foreman. foreman barely makes the count at 9, and then lewis continues as foreman tries to fight back, but he looks slow as lewis picks him apart and hits him with a one-two that lays foreman on the canvas. the crowd is excited as they feel lewis will win. but, foreman is up at the count of 8, and they continue. foreman seems to be holding on, but all of a sudden foreman unleashes a blockbuster of an uppercut and lewis goes down hard! the crowd is in stunned silence. lewis gets up at 6 and the round ends: saddler is encouraging foreman and foreman is building confidence.

Round 1: Holmes circles liston and is landing his jab well. liston throws his pile driver left jab and connects a few of them. liston is once again cutting off the ring well and lands to the body. holmes continues to ride that bicycle and stick and move on liston, however sonny is not bothered. holmes continues to stay away and land his jab nd occasionally a straight right: reddish is telling liston to be patient and to cut him off, and giachetti is telling holmes to keep on the moove and avoid trading.

Round 2: holmes keeps moving and landing occasioanal combinations. liston keeps pressuring, but holmes is moving well. holmes lands some shots that is scoring heavily for the judges. holmes is pulling from liston's punches pretty well. liston is a bit worried. he keeps throwinh his left hook and jab, but holmes either blocks them or side steps from them. this is holmes' round: holmes is in good shape and is quickly ready for action. liston is concerned.

Round 3: Holmes is continuing to fight off the backfoot, and liston is cutting the ring off occasionally. holmes is doing everything right and keeping liston away: liston and holmes are still fresh, and ready for action.

Round 4: holmes is a little flatfooted and is landing some combos that shake sonny. sonny is pressing, but at this point, holmes is just too fast for liston. liston tries to corner holmes, but holmes avoids the ropes. holmes boxes sharply. liston gets a few good shots in, but this is clearly holmes' round: holmes and lston are resting, but holmes looks good.

Round 5: Holmes is still circling and outboxing sonny, but charles closes the gap a little and manages to pound the body and land the left jab. liston is doing much better in cuttin off the ring and jabbing at holmes. the round is about even: liston noddes his head when reddish says something to him , and holmes is up off his stool early.

Round 6: Liston continues to cut off the ring and lands some punches that shakes holmes a little, but holmes is doing pretty good as well, holmes gains a little confidence and putts some good punches together, that worries sonny. sony eyes are swollen from holmes jab, but holmes' condition is not much better. some infighting is done, with liston dominated that phase of the fight, holmes still keeps away most of the time: liston is getting help with that eye. holmes looks ok.

Round 7: Holmes is now flatfooted. liston is cutting off the ring better and landing a host of jabs. holmes looks sloppy as he thinks he has it in the bag. liston still is landing saome body shots and is lading huge right hand to the face. holmes chin takes them, though. liston is wearing down holmes with more body shots as the round ends: liston is cofident, while holmes needs some rest.

Round 8: Liston is now throwing his "big" bombs, but holmes stays away from them. holmes uses his jab to keep liston away, but liston slowly closes the gap and corners them. it seems that sonny's top-notch conditioning is paying off, and he is fast in cutting off the ring on the elusive holmes. liston dominated this round as his body shots wear down holmes.

Round 9: Liston smells blood, he throws a 5-punch combo that staggeres holmes, and then he finishes off with a left hand lead. holmes is down and is up at 8, but is still wobbly, so referee mark conn steps in and stops the fight!

michael buffer: "The winner, at 0:31 sec of the ninth round, by a tecknical knockout, soooonyyyyyy liiistoooon!!"(the crowd cheers liston's victory)

now liston is up 3-1. will liston win the series? find out next time. this was a great fight, and i enjoyed it, i i hope that you did, too. now lets go over to New York City. :cool:

Round 3: both men come out trading blows. tyson's blows are harder, but both men takes them. frazier is pounding the body, and so is tyson, but not as relentlessly as frazier. joe throws thunderous body shots, and the a left hook, that tyson takes. tyson a firing back, but frazier keeps on coming! tyson throws a fast combo that drops frazier! however, frazier is up at two, takes the mandatory 8-count, and is firing back. tyson is suprised and just tries to take frazier out early. frazie is relentless and doesn't take any crap from the intimidating tyson. the round ends: both frazier and tyson are up quickly and are ready for action.

Round 4: Tyson comes out like in the first round, and now it's a slugfest. they both hurt and stun each other, but after all that, frazier is stronger and he bulls his way into tyson's skull, via right hand. frazier continues his concentrated body attack and lands some hellacious right hands to tyson's jaw. tyson hits frazier back, by joe seems to e taking every punch that joe dishes out: yank is giving frazier instructions, and rooney tries to revive is fighter.

DOWN GOES FRAZIER! DOWN GOES FRAZIER! DOWN GOES FRAZIER! Frazier is up at 5, but tyson presses on and throws a textbook left hook that drops him again! frazier is up at 3, and tyson lands some bodyshots, and frazier is bobbing to try and avoid tyson's shots. the round ends: tyson is listening intently to rooney's instructions. yank is cursing at frazier saying, "Come on, ****sucker. take you head out your ass!"

Round 6: frazier comes out and throws a huge left hook that misses as tyson rolls out of the way. tyson uppercuts frazier and then hits him with a big right hand and down frazier goes again! frazier gets up and tries to tie tyson up, but tyson manages to free himself and lands two bodyshots and then another vicious uppercut that floores frazier again! frazier is slow in getting up and takes the standing 8-count. frazier goes after tyson againg trying to land one big bomb, but to no avail and a tyson fluury sends him down again. frazier is up at nine and is defenseless. tyson moves in to finish with two lefthooks to the body and a left hook to the chin, followed by an over hand right. frazier is down and gets up too late. the fight is over!

I just can't get over the fact that these guys are fighting each other over and over again. A traditional tournament would be a lot more fun and less repetitive. Maybe I'll do one eventually.

Still, I'm impressed with the effort you're putting it.

http://www.kontaktrunde.de/boxing/baer.jpg vs. http://www.museumtrail.org/images/JackDempsey/jd5_TN.JPG

this is butterfly1964 and welcome to the Arcadia Pavilion in Oakland, CA for fight #5 between Max Baer and Jack Dempsey. Dempsey is a 16 to 1 favorite. can dempsey win the series in five fights? well, dempsey weighed 190, and baer was 210. the crowd is showing it's full support for baer. one of our reporters interiewed dempsey.

reporter: "well jack, is this the day you are gonna eliminate baer?"

dempsey: "i sure hope so. he's strong, but i think i'm able to handle him tonight."

reporter: "well then, what about the next round?"

dempsey: "I've been thinking about that alot. i'm pretty sure that i'll have to fight jack johnson, and i'll be looking forward to it as well."

reporter: "any last words?"

dempsey: "just ready to get this over with and move on, that's all."

well there you have it, folks. dempsey is ready, that's for sure. here's the tale of the tape.

Max Baer

age: 25
height: 6'-2 1/2"
weight: 210
reach: 80"
record: 40-7-0 (30ko)

Jack Dempsey

age: 28
height: 6'-1"
weight: 190
reach: 77"
record: 61-4-9 (49ko)

now dempsey is in the ring wearing a black robe. he has a serious look on his face. he is warming up in the ring right now. the crowd cheers as baer is in the ring. baer also looks determined.

buffer: "Lllllllllllets get ready to rumbllllllllllleeee!! fighting in the blue corner, from Manassah, CO, he wears solid black trunks, he stands 6'1, he weighs one ninety, the manassah mauler, Jaack Dempseeey! and in the red corner, from Livermore, CA, wearing white trunks, he stands 6'2 and one-half inch, weighing twoooo teeeeen, the Livermore Larupper, Maaaaaaaaaax Baaaaaaaeeeeeeeeeeeerr!! (loud cheers)

conn: "you know the rules of the California State athletic boxing commision. protect yourself at all times. shake hands, and good luck to both of you."

60,000 people jam-packed in the Arcadia Pavilion hoping for baer to stay alive in the series. it's win or go home for max baer.

Round 1: Dempsey comes in, and he fights from a croutch. an almost panther-like croutch! baer stands up straight and is flatfooted. dempsey is on his toes bobbing and weaving. moving in and out when he needs to. baer taggs dempsey with a left, but jack takes it well. dempsey lunges in with some blistering combinations, and they both get in a clinch. dempsey outmuscles him and does some work tot he body. dempsey keeps thjis up and lands some left hooks. baer keeps it close by landing some hard shots as the round ends: dempsey is calm and confident. baer is being tended to by his trainer Mike Cantwell, while Teddy Hayes gives Dempsey instructions.

Round 2: Dempsey keeps moving in, while baer attempts to keep him away. baer stunns dempsey a little, and the crowd cheers, but dempsey quickly recovers and continue his assault. dempsey low blows baer a couple of times, and conn warns dempsey. baer is now doing what ever he can to win. he is now throwing illegal backhands and dempsey complains. conn now warns baer as the round ends: both men need a little rest.

Round 3: this round appears to be a page right out of the pep-saddler rivalry, because they both are fighting dirty. dempsey with his low blowing, and baer with his back hand shots. the referee constantly warns both fighters, with neither fight gaining an edge in the fight: both hayes and cantwell, are giving their fighters a real talking to, telling them to fight clean.

Round 4: Dempsey is now looking better with solid head shots during clinches and great body shots. dempsey looks greatnow as he lands his left hook more and more. dempsey really wants to win this match to move on to the second round. he now is throwing some fast combos that worry max. dempsey keeps on him like white on rice until the bell rings: dempsey is a little tired, but max is pretty well spent.

Round 5: Jack moves in to carry the attack. baer fights back, but dempsey is a force to be reckoned with and baer has no answer. baer is gettin weaker and weaker with every body shot jack dempsey lands. dempsey keeps this up the whole round and finally a hard, fast two-punch combination, (a left hook and a right cross)sends baer to the canvas, and that is where he'll stay for at least the next ten seconds. the fight is over. Jack Dempsey defeats Max Baer in five games!

buffer: "The winner by a fifth round knockout at 2:16, Jaaack Deempseey!!"(very few cheers could be heard. the crowd is pretty much silent as they quickly begin to file out of the stadium)

so now jack dempsey will go home to manassah colorado and rest up. he will need the rest. in the second round, he will have to fight either jack johnson or max schmeling.

well, that selttles it. and now, lets send our cameras to Atlanta, GA! :cool: :cool:

Round 1: Both fighters come out and marciano dipps down low in his famous croutch. evander is missing his face cause marciano's head is too low. marciano throws a few wild punches, but holyfield dances away from him. holyfield is using the ring well, countering and making rocky miss: both men are fresh and ready for action.

Round 2: Both men come out trading, and evander is getting the best of it. rocky pounds the body during clinches and goes for the arms and neck as well. holyfield trys to stay out of a clinch, cause he knows rocky will go for anything. marciano is pressing the fight and is cutting off the ring pretty well, but holyfield is landing his jab and one-two's with pin-point accuracy: holyfield listens to sheilds with great attention, and goldman is giving a few pointers to rocky.

Round 3: holyfield is boxing well, landing his jab and making rocky miss. rocky looks sloppy and wild now. holyfield is sticking to his game plan and staying away. marciano is still pressing, but holyfield is a tad-bit faster. holyfield get consideration from the judges on this one: Sheilds is telling holy to keep doing what he's doing, and goldman is telling rocky to pick his shots carefully.

Round 4: holyfield is still circling and trying to keep away from rocky, but marciano is closing the gap and landing his right hand more. holyfield still is hitting marciano's face often, but marciano now is beginning to take over. he corners holyfield and wales away. holyfield takes them and is fighting back, and now they are trading punches, and holyfield catches rocky with an overhand right and drops rocky! the crowd is on their feet. but rocky is up in two seconds, and the fight goes on. rocky is swinging back, but that knockdown payed great dividends for the scoring. holyfield still wins: both men needs some rest, especially holyfield.

Round 5: Marciano is landing his right hand well this time, and holy is starting to tire. however, marciano is still strong as a bull and he begins to land blistering haymakers, half-way though the round, holyfield is land some hard punches that puffs up marciano's eyes. marciano does enough to win this round: both men's faces are puffed up, and goldman and sheilds are tending to them. marciano is still strong, but holy is tired.

Round 6: marciano is throwing big punches and ducks under holy's punches. he is landing effectively on his tired opponent. It's all marciano as he pounds the body with lefts and rights: holy's eye is puffed up some more, and marciano's eye is cut, but goldman keeps it under control.

Round 7: marciano continues to land, and holyfield hits marcano a few times to make a good fight of it, but holy looks pretty well spent, but marciano is still fresh: holy needs all 60 sec. to refresh himself, but marciano is up at the warning bell.

Round 8: Holyfield is now fighting back in the clinches and is landing some punches. marciano's face is cut again, and holy fight back more. marciano and holy are both throwing punches. holy throws body punches to wear marciano down, and marciano hits the face, body and arms. the round is even: both men needs some rest and some ice on their eyes.

Round 9: Holy comes out, tired but willing. marciano is strong in the clenches, and holy is taking some shots. marciano is crouching low to get in a good uppercut that staggers holyfield. holy shakes it off and keeps putting punches together. The round is even: Both men are tired, but marciano looks pretty good still. marciano eye has blood coming out of it, so goldman takes care of that situation.

Round 10: Holy is now looking better landing jabs and straight rights and dancing away from marciano's punches. marciano tries, but holyfield is too fast for rocky. it's all hoilyfield: marciano's eye becomes a problem, but goldman has it under control. holyfield's eye is swollen, and he is almost blind in one eye, but he still presses on.

Round 11: Marciano comes back strong, and land some punches, that worries evander. holyfield spends most of his time against the ropes while rocky hits what ever is infront of him. holy tries to box him, but he is tired and marciano continues to close the gap. rocky has evander hurt and he is going for the ko, but evander lasts the round: marciano recieves instructions, and so does evander and the warning bell sounds.

Round 12: marciano is still pressing forward landing some big shots. evander is tired and he has no answer to marciano's onslaught. marciano pounds the body to weaken him. holyfield has took a beatin to his hands and can barely hold them up. marciano pounds holyfield more to the face. holy is staggered and he looks out on his feet. marciano looks to finish, and the referee conn steps in and saves evander.

michael buffer: "The winner, at 2:03 of the twelfth round, by a tecknical knockout, roockyy maaarciaaanooo!!(the crowd is not pleased as marciano put holyfield on the brink of elimination)

marciano: "i hope i could win the next fight and move on to the secong round."

And, welcome to the Volkstaad Poststadion in Berlin, Germany for fight #5 between schmeling and johnson. johnson has the series lead and the opportinity to advance. johnson tipped the scales at 208, and schmeling was 192. schmeling's spirits seems to be low. he needs an answer to johnson speed and craftiness. well, here's the tale of the tape.

Max Schmeling

age: 26
height: 6'-1"
weight: 192
reach: 76"
record: 44-4-3 (32ko)

Jack Johnson

age: 32
height: 6'-1"
weight: 208
reach: 74"
record: 67-6-10 (49ko)

jack johnson now is in sight, walking casually down the aisle. he is now in the ring moving around and practicing on his footwork. a few boos could be heard. and now max schmeling is in the ring and 70,000 fans go wild! both men seem well prepared, especially johnson.

michael buffer: "ladies and gentleman, lllllets get ready to rumbllllllee! in the blue corner, from Galveston TX, wearing gray trunks, standing 6'-1", weighing 208, the Galveston Giaaant, Jaaack Johnsooon!! and in the red corner, from Brandenburg, Germany, wearing white trunks with black trim, standing also 6'-1" weighing 192, The Black Uhlan of the Rhiiiine, Maaaaaax Schmeeeeeeliiiiiing!!!(loud cheers)"

Round 1: Both men circle each other. johnson lunges in with a flurry, but schmeling side steps it and counters with a right cross and then a left hook. johnson uses his strength in the clinches like last time. schmeling counters well and wins over the judges: Blanken tells johnson how to deal with max's countering, and machon encourages schmeling to keep sharp and let johnson make the fight.

Round 2: schmeling continues to counter. johnson is a bit faster, but shmeling is crafty. schmeling is giving a good account of himself as he lands some right hands. johnson doesn't know what to make of the situation. he does a little in-fighting, but schmeling looks pretty good in that department as well. schmeling gains confidence as he starts to make the fight and throw some combos that hurt johnson, he follows up with some fast punches as the round ends: blanken says to keep his hands up and react to the counter right hand. schmeling is poised and ready.

Round 3: schmeling goes into his awkward stance and waits for johnson to carry the attack. johnson jabs infrequently, and schmeling counters with blistering right hands. johnson decided to fake a jab, to make max react with a right hand counter. when this happens, johnson drops max with a right hand! the crowd roars! schmeling is up at the count of 4, and johnson continues his attack. but schmeling lasts the round: schmeling's eye's are puffed, and so are johnson's. schmeling is slow at getting up off hos stool. johnson looks fine other that that eye.

Round 4: Johnson continues to carry the attack, and max attempts to counter, but at this point johnson is too fast for schmeling. schmeling is pretty tired from all that clinching johnson did. schmeling however sucks it up and lands a one-two-three combo that makes johnson cautious for the rest of the round: schmeling eyes are swollen and needs some serious attention. johnson is fresh and doesn't even bother to sit on his stool.

Round 5: Johnson moves in and lands some blisterin combos and max is caught off guard. it's all johnson as he pounds the body, ties schmeling up and blocks any counttering punches. a fast hard left staggers max and a right sends him down. he is up at four, and johnson quickly moves in with some stellar blows to the body and head and schmeling is down again! schemiling is up but is still wobbly. mark conn steps in and stots the fight. it's over! johnson advances to the second round to fight jack dempsey!

buffer: "The winner by a tko at 1:56 of the fifth round, jaaack joohnsoooon!"

johnson: "I'm glad i won, and now i'm gonna beat up dempsey next!"

that a bold statement from johnson. will he make it come true in the second round? we'll see. and now we are going over to New London Arena. :boxing:

Round 1: both men come out. both use their jabs, especially lewis. lewis gets a good right hand, but foreman walks through it. both men start trading punches. lewis then stuns foreman with his big right hand and tries to follow up but foreman catches lewis with a vicious left hook that staggers lewis! the crowd is on their feet. they keep trading blows until the bell rings.: both men need some shaking up in order to revive themselves.

Round 2: foreman is patient and lewis uses his jab and lewis is backed into a corner and foreman wales away. lewis now gets away and id is trying to avoid foreman. foreman is chasing down and lewis moves in to throw a right hand, but before he could throw it, foreman catches him with a huge right uppercut and lewis is sprawled on the canvas! lewis is motionless and appears to look even dead as conn counts to ten! the fight is over. foreman wins in 5 games and will fight ali in a houston, texas "crosstown series".

buffer: "The winner at 2:01 of the second round by a knockout, geooorge fooreemaaan!" (the crowd boos incessantly)

Liiiistoooooon!!(loud applause)

they are both ready.

Round 1: Holmes circles liston and pops his famous left jab. liston is not bothered, but jabs as well, and it suddenly becomes a jabbing battle. holmes is cornered once, and liston pounds his body. during infrequent clinches, liston is able to outmuscle larry somewhat: both men are up very quickly and ready for action.

Round 2: Holmes is now using his jab effectively and countering well to boot. liston is throwing his jab and throwing bombs, but holmes blocks most of them. this is holmes' round: liston is listening to Reddish intently and holmes is off his stool quickly and up on his toes.

Round 3: Holmes is continuing to fight off the backfoot, and liston is cutting the ring off occasionally. holmes is doing everything right and keeping liston away: liston and holmes are still fresh, and ready for action.

Round 4: holmes is continuing to outbox and outclass holmes, but liston is patient. liston manages to land some jabs and hooks, but holmes still does enough to win over the judges: Liston needs some rest from all the chasing and holmes is still fresh. Giachetti can be seen giving holmes instructions.

Round 5: Holmes is still circling and outboxing sonny, but charles closes the gap a little and manages to pound the body and land the left jab. liston is doing much better in cuttin off the ring and jabbing at holmes. the round is about even: liston noddes his head when reddish says something to him , and holmes is up off his stool early.

Round 6: Liston continues to cut off the ring and lands some punches that shakes holmes a little, but holmes is doing pretty good as well, holmes gains a little confidence and putts some good punches together, that worries sonny. sony eyes are swollen from holmes jab, but holmes' condition is not much better. some infighting is done, with liston dominated that phase of the fight, holmes still keeps away most of the time: liston is getting help with that eye. holmes looks ok.

Round 7: Holmes is now flatfooted. liston is cutting off the ring better and landing a host of jabs. holmes looks sloppy as he thinks he has it in the bag. liston still is landing saome body shots and is lading huge right hand to the face. holmes chin takes them, though. liston is wearing down holmes with more body shots as the round ends: liston is cofident, while holmes needs some rest.

Round 8: Liston is now throwing his "big" bombs, but holmes stays away from them. holmes uses his jab to keep liston away, but liston slowly closes the gap and corners them. it seems that sonny's top-notch conditioning is paying off, and he is fast in cutting off the ring on the elusive holmes. liston dominated this round as his body shots wear down holmes.

Round 9: Liston smells blood, he throws a 5-punch combo that staggeres holmes, but holmes shows he could take a good punch. holmes fights back, but slugging it out with liston smells disaster! liston drops holmes with a huge right hand. holmes is up at the count of 4. liston continues his attack. liston looks great as he pummeles holmes, but holmes holds on: giachetti is using smelling salts on liston to revive him. liston in confident.

Round 10: holmes is on his toes, trying to keep away. liston pounds the body and works the head. holmes jabs continuously and lands some combos. holms punches sharply and liston is stunned a bit, but recovers. holmes boxes well, and liston is missing some shots as holmes appears to be fully recovered from the last round. holmes is looking better, landing his jab constantly and the occasional straight right. the round ends: liston needs a little rest. so does holmes, but not as much as liston.

Round 11: Liston is trying to end the fight, but holmes dances away. holmes basically counters liston's shots. most of ht epunches thrown in this round are coming fom liston. holmes barely throws punches and wins the round almost on defense alone: giachetti is working on holmes eye, but liston's eye is cut, and the swelling is bigger.

Round 12: both men are a bit tired, but holmes toughs it out. holmes is now flatfooted, putting punches together. holmes gets off some stellar combinations that makes sonny think. sonny is throwing his jab a little, but mostly he is swinging wildly. holmes is cleanly winning the round and the fight: holmes now is very confident and ****y, and liston is tense and extremely concerned.

Round 13: Liston tries to land that one big bomb! holmes is caught a couple of times and is hurt. sonny lands a little more than usual, but holmes is also putting great punches together. holmes jabs at liston and this would remind one of clay-liston I on that fateful day (for liston) on february 25, 1964. liston looks bad now, throwing punches but missing by a mile. holmes wins this round big!: reddish is furious at liston and tells him to pick his shots. holmes is well poised.

Round 14: holmes is a little flatfooted and is landing some combos that shake sonny. sonny is pressing, but at this point, holmes is just too fast for liston. liston tries to corner holmes, but holmes avoids the ropes. holmes boxes sharply. liston gets a few good shots in, but this is clearly holmes' round: reddish is yelling at liston to be patient. holmes looks confident as the bell for the 15th and final round rings.

Round 15: liston is now closing the gap and is trying to end the fight. holmes moves well, and stays off the ropes. he knows that if he goes against the ropes, it is over! holmes feels he needs to survive this round and he will survive elimination from the playoffs. liston hurts holmes and goes for the finish as the closing seconds of the round tick down, holmes almost goes down, but he survives as the round ends!

There were no knockdowns. liston's eye was cut, and homes was puffed up. here is michael buffer!

buffer: "Judge Artie Aidala scores it 9-5-1 for holmes!(boos) Judge Tony Castellano scores it 8-3-4 for holmes! (loud boos and jeers). referee mark conn scores it 7-5-3 for holmes, the winner by unanimous decision larry holmes!!"

holmes: "I knew if I had the right game plan, I could win. And now i'll go back home in front of my fans and beat him again!"

The crowd shows it's disgust at the decision as holmes is not elin=minated and will live to fight another day. liston now has a 3-2 lead in the series. can holmes turn it around and win the series? find out next time! now lets go over to madison Square garden for another must-win-game! :boxing:

Evander Holyfield

age: 28

weight: 212
reach: 77"
record: 25-0-0 (21ko)

holyfield is making his way through the ring. he is wearing a bright green robe. he bounces into the ring and then shadow boxes. rocky now comes and the place erupts with applause. rocky smiles at his fans with a white, hooded terricloth robe. he climbs into the ring and rotates his arms to warm-up. well, here is michael buffer.

buffer:"welcome to boooston gardeeeenn, for the eastern matchup. Lllllllllets get ready to ruumbllllllleee! in the blue corner, from Atlanta, GA, he's wearing yellow trunks with royal blue trim, he stands 6'-2, he weighs two tweeelvee, The Real Deal, Evaaandeeer Hooolyfiieeld!

as conn gives the instructions, both marciano and holyfield have a focused look on their face. Charlie Goldman is marciano's trainer, and Ronnie Shields is evander's trainer.

Round 1: marciano goes right after holy landing crisp shots, and holytries to stay away. marciano hits to the body and head when he can, and to the arms, elbows and neck when he can't! holy jabs and lands some combos. this is a feeling out process, but evender looks a bit better: sheilds rubs down holy, while goldman is giving rocky a few pointers.

Round 2: holyfield is still circling and trying to keep away from rocky, but marciano is closing the gap and landing his right hand more. holyfield still is hitting marciano's face often, but marciano now is beginning to take over. he corners holyfield and wales away. holyfield takes them and is fighting back, and now they are trading punches, and holyfield catches rocky with an overhand right and drops rocky! the crowd is on their feet. but rocky is up in two seconds, and the fight goes on. rocky is swinging back, but that knockdown payed great dividends for the scoring.

Round 3: holyfield is boxing well, landing his jab and making rocky miss. rocky looks sloppy and wild now. holyfield is sticking to his game plan and staying away. marciano is still pressing, but holyfield is a tad-bit faster. holyfield get consideration from the judges on this one: Sheilds is telling holy to keep doing what he's doing, and goldman is telling rocky to pick his shots carefully.

Round 4: holyfield and rocky get into frequent clinches, and holyfield now uses his new found strength to pound rocky's body, outmuscle marciano, and to hurt his with some head combos. rocky tries to make a fight of it, but can't. holy is doing everything right. this is a great round for evander: goldman is telling marciano to concentrate on the body and to croutch lower to make evander miss. sheilds says to keep applying the pressure on the inside and tie marciano up when he can.

Round 5: marciano croutches lower, which gives holyfield problems in landing his jab cleanly. holy applies presure on the inside and gets marciano on the ropes and pounds him. marciano fights back, but holy uses his strength to tie him up. marciano throws his suzie q a few times, but misses by a mile. evander is now up on his toes and is landing his jab about half the time, puffing up marciano's face. marciano is pressuring holy, but holy boxes sharply: holyfield looks pretty good in terms of stamina, and marciano looks as fresh as ever.

Round 6: Marciano is still pressing the fight, this time landing some right hands to the jaw and hurting holyfield. holy shakes them off and continues to move. holy gets a bit tired now of running and marciano begins to close the gap. holy is cornered and uses his strength to push him off, but marciano is relentless in attacking. holyfield plays keep away, and the round is about even: marciano still looks good, except for that eye, and holy is tired. it seems that the added weight took a tool on his stamina.

Round 7: holyfiled is now in a bind with marciano pressuring him to the ropes. marciano lands his suzie q with effectiveness now as holyfield's stamina makes him a bit slower. marciano is strong in the clinches as holyfield no longer is able to outmuscle marciano. marciano can find evander easily now as the round ends: marciano's eye is swollen, and evander';s eye is a little puffed up as well.

Round 8: marciano goes low and unleashes an uppercut that worries evander. holy pounds the body, but at each exchange marciano gets the better of the two. marciano is presuring and presuring. holy is trying to fight back, but to no avail. holy contunues to fight off the back foot, stopping occasionally to throw some hard combination to try to keep his opponent a bit off-balance, but marciano is stronger in the fight now and alot more confident. this is definetely marciano's round: goldman tells marciano to keep applying the pressure and to use the jab. sheilds is telling evander to try and counter marciano's shots and to tie him up whenever he could.

Round 9: This fight is fought mainly in the clinches. marciano and holyfield are both throwing blistering shots that stun each other. holyfield seems to be bouncing back. holy lands some shots that keeps marciano away, but in fighting is the name of this round and holyfield is dominant in that phase: holy is looking better and marciano's eye is now cut.

Round 10: marciano goes into his croutch, and holy tries to land his jab on the bobbing and weaving target, but with little success. holy is cornered and marciano carries the attack. marciano is looking much better than in the last round landing hard rights to the jaw and chest. holyfield is a little arm weary and marciano knows it. he pounds the real deal's body with some hard lefts and rights. holyfield fights back, but this is rocky's round for sure: marciano looks pretty good still, while holyfield is fatigued.

Round 11: Marciano comes out with a vengeance, and the crowd is behind him. holyfield fights back, but he is really tired and marciano takes advantage. marciano pounds his body, and holy is staggering, marciano follows up and finally holyfield goes down for the first time in this tournament! holy is up at 8 and marciano moves in to finish with two hard lefts and his suzie q, and holy goes down and stays down. the fight is over! Rocky Marciano defeats holyfield in 6 fights and moves on to the second round!

buffer: "The winner by a knockout, at 2:43 of the eleventh round, rockky maaarciaaaaaaanoooooooooo!"(the crowd goes wild as marciano closes out the series on his home floor)

marciano: "I'll be looking forward to fighting liston or holmes. i'm sure either one of them will give me a great fight."

well, there you have it folks, once again, the final score is marciano ko11!

also by the way, we have recieved word that a great fighter that was not in this tournament had passed away this morning. floyd patterson died today at the age of 71. rest in piece floyd!

Welcome to The Houston Astrodome, where Muhammad Ali will take on George Foreman. Both of these fighters are kind of lucky because they won't have to travel far to get to their opponents home stadium, Sam Houston Colliseum is foreman's home stadium which is only a few miles away from the astrodome. since their both from houston, a great deal of the crowd will be routing for foreman as well as ali. ali is a 2 to 1 favorite. let's go to the press conference.

Ali: I'll knock you out quicker than i did in africa you slow-moving mummy! i'ma dance around you and you will be amazed by my grace george foreman!

crowd: any predictions?

Ali: Only one. TIIIIMBEEEEEEEERRR!!!!!(laughs from the crowd)

foreman just stands there and puts on his mean stare.

after that, one of out ace reporters interviewed foreman.

Reporter: Are you gonna shut this guy muhammad ali up once and for all?

foreman: Look, I don't think i could do anything to get him to shut up, alright? this guy has been beat up half to death, been knocked down, got his jaw broken, and so on. and he still won't shut up! so the way i see it, no matter what i do, there is no way i'm gonna keep this guy from talking!

both men are in phenominal shape. ali came in with a little extra muscle at 213, and foreman was at 216. over 95,000 screaming fans came to see both men, but mainly ali. here's the tale of the tape.

Muhammad Ali

age: 25
height: 6'-3"
weight: 213
reach: 83"
record: 29-0-0 (23ko)

George Foreman

age: 24
height: 6'-4"
weight: 216
reach: 81"
record: 38-0-0 (35ko)

And now George foreman is walking down the aisle. with him is trainer dick saddler. foreman is wearing a blue robe. he climbs in the ring and a few cheers could be heard. hw now bounces around and shadowboxes. foreman looks determined as saddler intently talks to him.

Now Muhammad Ali is now bouncing to the ring center accompanied by his trainer angelo dundee. ali is wearing a bright green robe and the crowd goes wild when they see him. ali climbs in the ring, bounces up and down and does a quick ali shuffle to entertain the crowd. both men now take off their robes and their respective trainers are putting on their gloves. they are ten ounces. as they wait for the ring announcer to come on, ali talks to foreman from his corner telling him how he's gonna embarass him and whup him and knock him out. it is a very tense moment as now michael buffer is seen.

Michael Buffer: Ladiiiiies and geeentlemeeen, welcooome to the houston Astrodome for this secound round playoff. the referee is mark conn, the two judges are artie aidala, and tony castellano! presenting 15 rounds of boxing. introducing, from houston, texas, wearing blue trunks with white trim, he stands six fot four, he weighs two hundred sixteen pounds, "biiiiig" geooorge foooremaan!(a few cheers could be heard among the fans) and his opponent, also from houston, he's wearing solid lime green trunks, he stands six feet three, he weighs tow hundred thirteen pounds, he is the greatest, muhaamaaaaaaaaaad aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiii!!(95,000 people scream hysterically)

here is the referee mark conn giving the instructions.

conn: alright boys, you know the rules of the texas state athletic boxing commision. i want a good clean fight, remember to protect yourself at all times, any questions? ok, good luck.

the tension is building. but both fighters are ready. both men say their prayers. alibows his head and holds up his hands, and foreman kneels down and clasps his hands together.

Round 1: ali circles foreman and throws some jabs that foreman takes. foreman is cutting off the ring well landing some body shots that ali takes. ali then gets out of the corner to land some stinging combo's that doesn't seem to bother george. both men use their feet in this one, as ali boxes around foreman and tries to stay away like he did with sonny liston, and foremanuses his speed of foot to ct the ring off and nuetralize ali's speed. it's an even round pretty much: dundee is telling muhammad to keep on the run and land shots where he sees an opening, and saddler is telling foreman to be patient and pick his shots.

Round 2: both men do the same thing they did in the last round, but now foreman gets a bit sloppy and ali capitalizes and lands some right hands. foreman is taking them and he presses on. ali lands some solid combinations, but he still keeps on the run. foreman still cuts the ring off and lands some body shots in an attempt to weaken ali. ali uses his jab, and so does foreman to an extent: foreman looks pretty good and so does ali. both men are up at the warning bell.

Round 3: ali still moves for the most part, but is going more flatfooted to increase the punching power. foreman cuts off the ring well with unusual quickness for a man that size! ali still gets some jabs in as he now is landing his fast fluury of hooks on foreman's face. foreman hits ali with a jab that rocks his head back. ali is stunned for a moment and hold on trying to tie foreman up, but this tiem ali does not have the luxury of being stronger than his opponent as foreman pushes ali off. but however, foreman can't manhandle ali as easy as his other opponents, but he still does it nontheless. ali still loks pretty good landing alot of punches on foreman: ali rests for a while and so does foreman, and saddler is seen giving foreman special pointers.

Round 4: both fighters look a little less anxious, especially foreman. he knows not to rush his shots against ali, or else the same thing that happened in zaire will happen, now! ali is getting hit with hard shots to the body and head as foreman continues to close the gap on ali's speed. ali still lands alot of punches and still looks pretty good. foreman and ali are both doing well, but ali has defeinetely landed more blows, even if they aren't as powerful as the ones dished out by big george: dundee is giving ali pointers on what to do in certain situations, and foreman sits calmly on his stool.

Round 5: Ali goes back on his toes and seems to be having success at the moment as foreman is having a tougher time cornering ali than he did earlier. ali is fighting a strictly defensive fight, throwing only jabs and the occasional straight right. foreman's face is a bit puffy around the right eye from all the jabs he took from ali. ali jabs, jabs, and jabs. ali moves in to throw a fast right hand, but foreman beats him to the punch with an unexpected left hook, and ali is stunned! foreman follows up with a right hand and his vicious uppercuts, but ali still holds onas the crowd is on their feet and pandemonium is heard as the crowd screams in excitement. foreman tries to finish him off, but ali just won't drop as the round ends: ali needs some reviving from all the punishment he took, and foreman is calm and poised.

Round 6: foreman goes after ali impatiently, and ali tries to stay away. ali is still hurt from those barrage of punches, and foreman knows it. he jabs and then hits him with an uppercut that hurts ali even more. a left hook and a vicious overhand right finnaly send ali down! ali is low in getting up, so slow that he doesn't beat the count! the fight is over. george foreman takes game one away from ali and skocks the world!

saddler is jubilant, and ali hands his head in shame as he loses for the first time in this tournament.

buffer: the winner by a knockout at 1:01 of the sixth round, geeoooorge foooremaaaan!(some of the crowd is happy, some are not)

foreman: he's pretty fast, but i knew i would win. i'll have to keep this momentum up if i want to win.

ali: he's quick on his feet. i made a few mistakes. I SHALL RETURN!

WOW!! Ali gets demolished by the human wrecking crew foreman in six reounds. didn't expect that, did you? well, that was a great match and now lets send our camers over to the east in Michigan. :cool:

http://www.hickoksports.com/images/louis_joe.jpg vs. http://www.onlinesports.com/images/ssg-umt-16a.jpg

Hello, there. This is butterfly1964 and welcome to Olympia Stadium in Detroit, MI for fight #1 between the brown bomber joe louis, and the iron one, mike tyson. both men were in fantastic shape. louis came in at 203, and tyson was 215. louis is a 3 to 1 favorite to beat tyson. let's go to the press conference.

louis: i know this will be a great fight, and i'll do my best.

tyson: i know it will be tough, but i'm confident i will win.

well, few words were said, but make no mastake abotu it, they are both ready. these are two of the most complete fighters of all-time. i'm sure it will be a great fight. here's the tale of the tape.

Joe Louis

age: 28
height: 6'-2"
weight: 203
reach: 76"
record: 56-1-0 (50ko)

Mike Tyson

age: 21
height: 5'-11"
weight: 215
reach: 71"
record: 35-0-0 (31ko)

Mike tyson is coming into the ring wearing no robe. he is accompanied by kevin rooney and he looks prepared as the crowd boos him. now louis comes into the ring wearing a black robe, and the crowd is estatic. louis is accompanied by his long-time trainer jack blackburn. both are into the ring and they are warming up as michael buffer gives the announcement.

michael buffer: Ladies and gentlemen, presenting 15 rounds of boxing, lllllets get reaaady to ruumbllllllllle. introducing, from catskill, new york, he's wearing black trunks, he stangs five feet eleven, he weighe two fifteen, miiiiiiike tyyyyyysonnnnnnnn!(boos could be heard, and cheers for louis as he is being announced)and his opponent, from detroit, michigan, he's wearing black trunks with white trim, he stands six feet two, he weighs two hundred and three pounds, jooooooeee loouissssss!

conn: alright, now i want a good clean fight. protect yoursef at all times. three knockdown rule is waived, so is the standing 8-count, go to a neutral corner upon scoring a KD, break when i tell you to break. a fighter will not be saved by the bell when knocked down, except for the final round. ok? shake hands.(tyson put his stare on louis, and louis just stood there with no expression at all, almost stoic)

Round 1: Both men come out and tyson is bobbing and weaving. louis is forced back. louis jabs, and tyson performs head movement. tyson lunges with a left hook, which louis blocks. louis throws an overhand right which tyson avoids and counters with a right hand that louis takes. tyson is the agressor, and louis is forced back, just like he was against rocky marciano. louis gets some good shots in that tyson takes, but tyson loks better landing some crisp body shots that weaken louis as the round ends: tyson and louis are both resting and waiting for the bell.

Round 2: tyson comes out, ducks under a louis left hook and throws a vicious uppercut and louis goes down! louis is up at three and fights back, landing some hard fast combos tht tyson takes.louis jabs and lands a right hand, but tyson keeps on coming. louis is now using his defensive skills to survive the round and he is countering shots when he can: louis needs a little rest, and tyson looks swell.

Round 3: louis comes out and tries to get back into the fight. tyson lands some uppercuts that shake louis again, and tyson moves in and tries to finish, but louis survives the onslaught. tyson has spring in his step and he moves in on louis and corners him. they get into a clinch and louis tries to punish the body, but tyson beats him to the punch. when they break, tyson lands a great right hands that sends louis down for the count!

michael buffer: the winner by a third round knockout, miike tysoooon.(the crowd is booing alot as they are dissatisfied)

well, tyson also upsets louis, as joe loses for the first time in this tournament. it seems as the only two people in this tournament who hasn't lost yet, ali and louis, has now lost their first second round fight. well, i hope you enjoyed it, as i sure did. well, the final scores are Part1-foreman ko6, and Part2-tyson ko3. comment on this thread if you like, remember this is "NBA Playoffs + Boxing =". This is butterfly1964 saying good day! :D

i didn't really mean you, cause i know you would take it. i mean hous, dansweeney, etc.
thanks :D I know i just wanted to put my 2 cents but the fact of the matter with Ali v Marciano or any fight actually is that u just don't know what will happen. Good Examples of this are fights like-
Ali v Foreman (Frazier beats Ali, Foreman beats Frazier, Ali beats Foreman who knew?)

Mike Tyson v Buster Douglas (Tyson fast powerful undefeated many ko's, Douglas loser who was having a good streak, Busters mom dies, Tyson party's, Douglas fights great Tyson fights horribley, Buster doulgas wins)

Ali v Wepner (Ali still won but who'd a though the day before that Wepner would go 15 rounds with ali. you would have been laughed at for saying such a thing)


the list goes on

I have to say that round 2 has started out pretty interesting. Both fights went about as expected; Foreman with a bit more spring in his step against a slightly greener Ali would probably have that shock value. Louis's slow starts would probably put him at a disadvantage against Tyson. Even so, I'm sure the rematches will be "shocking" and each series will go 5-6.

I give a woo hoo! to butterfly for the beginning of this round. I still predict that he will have the finals be Ali vs. Liston. :rolleyes:

Hi, an welcome to this second round western conference playoffs. we have a great match here in The Stockyards Stadium in Denver, Colorado, where Jack Dempsey will take on Jack Johnson. these two were recognized in the first quarter of the twentieth century as the two greatest hw's of all-time, and now they're locking horns! dempsey came in at an in-shape 188 1/2, and johnson was 210. I had a chance to interview johnson.

butterfly1964: Well Jack what will you bring to the table tonight?

johnson: i'm gonna embarass that white boy. he hasn't fought anybody as good as me. I'll destroy him!

butterfly1964: You are really confident in this aren't you?

johnson: I'm in good shape. I should be able to handle myself.

butterfly: thank you, jack.

Well, looks like johnson's ready. and now let's go to the press conference that took place earlier.

johnson: I'm gonna punish you like I never punished before! you think tunney messed you up? well, that's nothing compared to the hurt I'm gonna put on you!

Dempsey: When my left hook connects, you'll be sorry.

That was interesting. Here is the tale of the tape.

Jack Dempsey

age: 28
height: 6'-1"
weight: 188 1/2
reach: 77"
record: 61-4-9 (49ko)

Jack Johnson

age: 32
height: 6'-1"
weight: 210
reach: 74"
record: 67-6-10 (49ko)

Even though dempsey has a higher seed than johnson, (3 and 2 respectively) the betting odds are deadlocked at 1:1. there is no clear favorite. these are my two favorite fighters of all-time going at it(besides ali of course :D ). this will be very entertaining.

And now Jack Johnson can be seen by the crowd and he does not exactly get a heartfelt ovation. boos can be clearly heard. Johnson is wearing a white-hooded robe and is accompanied by his trainer Pop Blanken. johnson gets into the ring and warms up by practicing his evading footwork.

The great Jack Dempsey is now in the ring and the crowd erupts in applause. dempsey holds his hands up in recognition of the crowd. dempsey is wearing a white robe. dempsey gets in the ring and warms up by shadowboxing. dempsey is with his trainer Teddy Hayes. here is our ring announcer for tonight, Michael Buffer!

michael buffer: Ladieeees aaaaand geeentlemen! presenting second round fights in the western Conference! introducing, from Galveston, TX wearing white trunks with black trim, he stands six feet one inch, weighing two hundred ten pounds, the Galveston Giaaant, Jaaack Joooohnsooon!(boos fill the arena) and his opponent, from manassah, CO, wearing solid black trunks also six one and weighs one eighty eight and a half pounds, the manassah mauler Jaaaaaaaaaaaaack Deeeeeempseeeeeeeeeeeeeeey!!!(the crowd cannot control itself as they scream louder and louder) Llllllllllllllllllets get ready to ruumblllllllllllllllllllllllllllee!!!

conn: You boys both know the rules of the Colorado Stae Athletic Boxing Commision. protect yourself at all times, and break clean. shakes hands, and come out fighting!

will dempsey be able to cach up to johnson and defeat him? will johnson be able to keep away from dempsey? we'll soon find out. Both men are ready as the anticipation mounts. Dempsey put on a stare at his corner, johnson put on his trademark golden smile.

Round 1: both men comes out. dempsey is in hiscroutch, pressing the fight, and johnson is moving and bouncing around a little. dempsey lunges, but johnson is there to tie him up. dempsey is strong, but johnson has that little extra strength to tie dempsey up in the clinches, but he can only do it for a little while, cause dempsey knows how to free himself and pound the body, which he does. johnson manages to get away and they cotinue. johnson jabs and waits for dempsey's lunges. dempsey corners johnson occasionally and work the head and body, and johnson counter punches when he can. the round is about even: dmepsey and johnson are both fresh and ready as their trainer work them over.

Round 2: Johnson lunges in with a hard right that dempsey takes. dempsey then croutches low and lunges and lunges, but johnson is fast and can anticipate what dempsey is doing. johnson is now looking better counterpunching and tying dempsey up when they get into a clinch. dempsey however does not get frustrated, but he just sticks to his game plan. johnson is landing his straight right well, and dempsey takes them. johnson looks fast and skillful, but dempsey keeps on coming. dempsey lunges with a right misses that, and then a fast left hook that drops johnson! johnson is up at 5, and the bell rings, but the round still belongs to johnson: Blanken tells johnson to watch out for his left hook more, and Hayes says to keep pressing the fight and to not get discouraged.

Round 3: johnson comes out and anticipates dempsey's moves. dempsey moves in and manages to get throught johnson's defense and lands some terrific bodyshots that hurt johnson. dempsey suddenly acts on instinct and gos after johnson like a black panther on a huge elephant! dempsey land s some hard fast shots and johnson is down again! johnson is slow in getting up, and he takes the eight-count., dempsey quickly rushes in to finish with a pulverizing left hook and an overhand right! johnson is layed out cold. the crowd goes wild as dempsey wins his fight in familiar fashion, by brutal lightning fast ko!

buffer: the winner by a knockout, at :57 seconds of the third round, Jaaaaaaaaaack Deeeempseeeeeey!!

The crowd is estatic. everyone celebrates the manassah mauler's victory. looks like johnson needs to bounce back and bounce back fast. well, that was fun! now, let's go over to the eastern conference in Boston. :boxing:

can marciano break down liston and knock him out, or can liston keep marciano away from him. this has to end in a knockout one way or the other. liston puts his bone-chilling stare on marciano, but rocky is not affected by it, for he has great courage.

Round 1: marciano is in his croutch, and he tries to press the fight, but liston keeps him away with his jab. liston lands his straight right well, and marciano manages to get a goog suzieq in that liston takes. liston is jabbing and jabbing and throwing the occasional straight right and marciano is taking the punches. they clinch, and liston uses his superior strength to push marciano off. liston the lands a solid right hand and marciano is down! marciano is up at two, and liston comes after them and they both trade blows and all of a sudden marciano is down again! marciano gets up and gets knocked down three more times, the last time he is up at nine. liston moves in to finish with a left lead, a right cross and a left hook and marciano is down for the sixth time in this round. marciano doesn't beat the count. the fight is over, sonny liston shoks massachusetts as he performs a one-rond demolition of Rocky Marciano.

Welcome to The Houston Astrodome, where Muhammad Ali will take on George Foreman again. foreman will try to go up 2-0 on ali, but can ali come back? earlier today, i had a chance to interview ali.

butterfly1964: Well Muhammad, what do you have in store tonight?

ali: I'll just do the same thing i did in the last fight. foreman caught me with a lucky punch, that's all.

butterfly: I would like to say that I am honored to be talking to my favorite fight of all time, and I wish you good luck in this fight.

ali: Thanks. Say, if you want I have a poster of me in one of my earlier fights. Would you like it?

butterfly: I sure would!

I especially enjoyed that interview :D . now let's go to the tale of the tape.

Muhammad Ali

age: 25
height: 6'-3"
weight: 211
reach: 83"
record: 29-0-0 (23ko)

George Foreman

age: 24
height: 6'-4"
weight: 227
reach: 81"
record: 38-0-0 (35ko)

And now George foreman is walking down the aisle. with him is trainer dick saddler. foreman is wearing a red robe. he climbs in the ring and a few cheers could be heard. he now bounces around and shadowboxes. he is the 3 to 1 favorite over ali.

Now Muhammad Ali is now bouncing to the ring center accompanied by his trainer angelo dundee. ali is wearing a white robe and the crowd goes wild when they see him. ali climbs in the ring, bounces up and down. both men now take off their robes and their respective trainers are putting on their gloves. it is a very tense moment as now michael buffer is seen.

Michael Buffer: Ladiiiiies and geeentlemeeen, welcooome to the houston Astrodome for this secound round playoff. introducing, from houston, texas, wearing red trunks with blue trim, he stands six fot four, he weighs two hundred twenty-seven pounds, "biiiiig" geooorge foooremaan!(a few cheers could be heard among the fans) and his opponent, also from houston, he's wearing white trunks with black trim, he stands six feet three, he weighs two hundred eleven pounds, he is the greatest, muhaamaaaaaaaaaad aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiii!!(95,000 people scream hysterically)

here is the referee mark conn giving the instructions.

conn: alright boys, you know the rules of the texas state athletic boxing commision. i want a good clean fight, remember to protect yourself at all times, any questions? ok, good luck.

Round 1: Both men come out, and ali dances. ali is using the large ring to his advantage, foreman tries to cut ali off and he lands some good body shots on the clinches and on the ropes. foreman uses his jab, but ali pulls from most of them. ali is moving well, boxing sharply. ali is now getting some good combos together and foreman is going to the body when he can and throwing his big bombs.

Round 2: Foreman is still patient and is cutting off the ring, and ali is on his toes and puts good punches together. they clinch and foreman does some body work to weaken and slow ali down. foreman then pushes ali away. ali uses his jab and straight right well. foremanget ali on the ropes and lands some good head and body shots. ali continues to out box foreman in ring center as foreman throws big shots but misses.

Round 3: Foreman comes out and throws huge punches that ali is able to avoid. foreman keeps on ali throwing alot of punches trying to get to ali, and ali is able to avoid most of them. ali does well in boxing, but foreman closes the gap and he is landing good shots that ali takes. ali uses his jab and scores some points of his own as the round ends.

Round 4: Ali keeps moving and grooving, and foreman throws big punches. somehow, foreman gets ali up against the ropes and pummels him, landing crisp, clean body and head blows, that stun ali. when they separate, ali attemps to stay away, but those shots took their toll and he is a bit slower. it's foreman all the way as he lands huge shots and ali is helpless.

Round 5: Foreman is a bit tired from the last round and ali seems to have recovered, becasue he is now fast on his feet and is fighting from the periphery well. foreman still lands some good shots, but foreman is now missing wild shots due to his decreased accuracy by way of fatique. still he fights on landing some body blows. ali uses his jab well and counterpunches george. ali now is looking better as george tires trying to catch the elusive ali.

Round 6: Ali is now flatfooted to get extra power and plus he is confident that foreman has lost some of his fire-power. ali jabs foreman and foreman is missing most of his blows. ali capitalizes by landing crisp combinations. ali now does his shuffle followed by a good stiff five-punch combination. george is momentarily stunned but keep coming and follows ali throwing big shots but he misses them all. ali is looking much better as this seems to be a coasting round for ali.

Round 7: Foreman is dead tired of chasing after ali and throwing the amount of puunches that he did. ali jabs and jabs and looks for an opening for the attack. foreman hits ali with a right hand, but foreman's power has greatly diminished because of the lack of stamina. foreman was eleven pounds heavier than in the last fight. foreman get s more tired and tired and ali decides to carry the attack. ali throws a one-two that stuns george and ali follows it up with left and right hooks to the jaw and then a textbook over hand right that numbs foreman and foreman stumbles and stumbles and finally goes down! foreman tries to beat the count, but he collapses in exhaustion and the fight is over!

buffer: the winner by a knockout at 2:13 of the seventh round, Muhammaaaaaad Aaaaaaaaaliiiiiiiiiiiiii!!(the crowd is well pleased)

Ali: I'm so great I don't have a mark on my face, and i upset george foreman, and i just turned 25 years old. I must be the greatest!

Well, there you have it. Ali evened the series at a game a piece. now lets go over to Detroit. :boxing:

Round 2: Tyson comes out and tries to box louis. louis jabs and lands an overhand right. louis then jabs and lunges in with a left hook and tyson weaves out of the way and counters with an uppercut that stuns louis, but louis quickly shakes off the effect. tyson becomes more agressive trying to finish louis off. louis capitalizes and parries the blows and counters with a fast combination that momentarily stuns tyson.

Round 3: Tyson now comes out throwing a huge shot that lands on louis' head, louis is now wobblylegged and tyson moves in to finish. tyson left hook is blocked completely, and louis manages to survive and then carry the attack by throwing a left and then a big right hand. tyson is taking all these punches however. tyson then gets under louis jab and upercuts him again, but louis some how takes the punches. louis looks good and tyson is more cautious now as louis uses his jab well that sets up his right hand.

wow your pretty biased

if you were gunna make Liston win because u like him better at least make it less obvious

1st round he was never even knocked down in hte first round

Plus IMO Marciano hit harder then liston, and even if you don't think so he would still get the better punches if they went toe-to-toe due to the fact that Marciano had KO power in either hand

I believe that was the second round though I can be wrong, and if you say it was the first it may well be. Though you can't say Marciano went down off a bad punch because that was Walcott's famous punch that put down Louis,Charles, and marciano.

Yeah, it was the first round, Rock...about a minute into the fight actually.

And yeah, that was an excellant left hook from Walcott, as he stepped & turned into with plenty of leverage and it landed flush right on Marciano's chin...It certainly looked like the more legitimate knockdown of the two Marciano suffered, that's for sure.

Even so the chances of Liston KO'ing Marciano in the first round are very slim, granted Marciano is a slow starter he still had and Iron Chin, Stamina, and A truck load of heart. The chances that somebody could KO him in the first round is slim to non.

Also IMO Marciano had a harder punch then liston, look what Marciano did to guys compared to what liston did too guys, and the question of competition isn't even there because it was practically the same era. Also the fact is Liston's suspected of having many of his fights fixed, Not that i believe that but many people don't take him seriously.

Even so for the Ali fans who say Liston hit harder, in the end Marciano still had KO Power in either hand so the fact is in a toe-to-toe stand off Marciano would be more likely to come out on top. Toe-to-Toe Liston would be throwing a good punch then a strong punch (Jab which was good, and cross which was stronger) and Marciano would be throwing to strong punches.

Thats just why i feel the close thing was false.

louis takes it and lands some great power punches and after about thirty or so punches, tyson is down!



lol louis would take less than 30 punches to put sumone down trust me, and if there were 30 or so unanswered punches in one fight the ref would for sure stop the fight

oh and marciano would go down in the first round with tyson thats for sure, outta dempsy, frazier and tyson he is without a doubt the slowest starter, its funny though, u know whos gonna win, marciano has no chance with sumone like butterfly controlling the fights, hell i simmed marciano vs. liston in fight night round 2, and guess what, liston ko by the 2nd with rockys famous 1 2 combo, left jab right cross!! lol, u guys r so quick to jump on him for showing his biasedness, i luv it!

yea i got know problem with him making people lose just to keep the tornament interesting but come on at least make it come out for awhile. I mean i don't see Liston beating Marciano that much and if he did it wouldn't be in hte first round

I'm not saying this because Marcian won the sim but Fight Night stats tend to be on key, i don't know about comp vs comp but like Marciano's stats in that game were what they would be in real life or at least close (except his stamina would be higher)

If you guys want the best pure boxing sim available out there, get the lastest version of Title Bout, which is a game that's been around ever since the late 70's when it was a board game (I had the old board game when it first came out, and have the lastest PC version)...same developers in all that time too.

Here's a link to the site where you can even download a 20 hour free trial version of the sim for free;

cheers yogi, good stuff.

No problem, Stinger.

And what the hell...here's another boxing simulation game that maybe some of you would be interested in, and the good thing is it's completely free to downlaod & you'll have it forever on yoyr computer.

Never played it before, so I don't know exactly how it works. But I know of some who have and they say that the game takes much of the info on the fighters from the Title Bout game (and there's a TON of fighters available), although it plays more like a board game than the text based game that is Title Bout.

Check it out if you want;

Marciano hit harder then liston, and even if you don't think so he would still get the better punches if they went toe-to-toe due to the fact that Marciano had KO power in either hand

Hi, an welcome to this second round western conference playoffs, where two men named Jack will square off.(Dempsey and Johnson that is) Dempsey won the first time in three rounds, can he be victorious again? dempsey was 191, and johnson was 210. one of our reporters interviewed dempsey.

reporter: Well Jack how will you keep up the momentum?

dempsey: well, i'll do what i always do. keep coming at him and don't stop.

reporter: Do you think that your confidence is built up enough that you could possibly pull off a sweep?

dempsey: I don't know. I know for sure he will be well prepared cause he won't want to lose a second time. But I should be able to win again.

reporter: thank you, jack.

Well, looks like dempsey's ready. Here is the tale of the tape.

Jack Dempsey

age: 28
height: 6'-1"
weight: 190
reach: 77"
record: 61-4-9 (49ko)

Jack Johnson

age: 32
height: 6'-1"
weight: 210
reach: 74"
record: 67-6-10 (49ko)

And now Jack Johnson can be seen by the crowd and he does not exactly get a heartfelt ovation. boos can be clearly heard. Johnson is wearing a black-hooded robe. johnson gets into the ring and warms up by practicing his evading footwork.

Jack Dempsey is now in the ring and the crowd erupts in applause. dempsey is wearing a black robe. here is our ring announcer for tonight, Michael Buffer!

michael buffer: Ladieeees aaaaand geeentlemen! presenting second round fights in the western Conference! introducing, from Galveston, TX wearing gray trunks with black trim, he stands six feet one inch, weighing two hundred ten pounds, the Galveston Giaaant, Jaaack Joooohnsooon!(boos fill the arena) and his opponent, from manassah, CO, wearing solid black trunks also six one and weighs one ninety pounds, the manassah mauler Jaaaaaaaaaaaaack Deeeeeempseeeeeeeeeeeeeeey!!!(the crowd cannot control itself as they scream louder and louder) Llllllllllllllllllets get ready to ruumblllllllllllllllllllllllllllee!!!

conn: You boys both know the rules of the Colorado Stae Athletic Boxing Commision. protect yourself at all times, and break clean. shakes hands, and come out fighting!

Round 1: Dempsey is bobbing and weaving and johnson is flatfooted. again, this seems to be a methodical battle for dempsey, and a tactical battle with johnson, as johnson lets dempsey carry the fight. dempsey is lunging with hard jolting shots, and johnson pulls back from them. johnson occasionally goes in with a right hand. johnson has to use the right hand whenever he can, because that is dempsey's achilled heel. dempsey is lunging and throwing shots, but johnson is able to either parry them, or tie dempsey up.

Round 2: Now dempsey realizes that johnson is on to his plan, so he is more cautious. dempsey moves in and out and johnson jabs a little. johnson seems to be using the same guidelines that the legendary gene tunney used in his fight with dempsey. johnson looks pretty fast on his feet at the moment, as dempsey cannot seem to find the target. johnson is countering well with hard lefts and rights. johnson is boxing well, and tying dempsey up when necessary. johnson does well in this round.

Round 3: Dempsey is still in his croutch, looking for that one big punch to take johnson out of there. at this point, johnson is too fast for dempsey. johnson has learned well from his last series with max schmeling, for max also alot of the time fights from the panther-like croutch that dempsey impliments. Jack (johnson that is :D )is now landing solid rights to dempsey's face, but he takes them, and dempsey has his jaw tucked in to minimize the damage. johnson is scoring well, and dempsey keeps coming in, but everytime he does that, johnson is right there to hold him off with his superior strength.

Round 4: Johnson is in his stance, periodically lunging in with some hard shots that jarrs dempsey. dempsey still keeps coming in, and johnson throws a lightning fast fluury that sends dempsey to the canvas! dempsey is up at 3, but he takes the standing eight count. dempsey fights back though, landing his trademark left hook and johnson is a little shaken up, but when dempsey follows up, he still has enough strength to neutralize him in a clinch. johnson recovers, and so does dempsey from that knockdown. they fight on, and from then on, it's pretty even, but johnson's knockdown was enough for the judges to smile in his favor.

Round 5: Johnson is now carrying the attack, for dempsey is a bit tired from lunging at him all night, but dempsey holds strong. johnson is doing well, and holds his hands up in perfect position to protect his chin. dempsey just can't seem to penetrate his defense. dempsey however is not frustrated, but he presses on. johnson hurts dempsey again with a right, and now dempsey is hurt. johnson is now teeing off on jack's face, and gets him on the chin once, but jack survives the barrage and they continue until the round ends.

Round 6: Dempsey now goes out like a madman. he throws thunderous shots, only to be twisted up by johnson's powerful arms in the clinches. johnson is patient and methodical. he now has dempsey's face well swollen and on the verge of cuts. if he does cut dempsey, it will be a remarkable thing, cause dempsey skin is tough as nails and it is very hard to cut his skin because of the daily ritual he performs of rubbing beef brine into his skin to make it hard! johnson is now hitting dempsey with good shots, but dempsey fights back landing two right hands and a left hook, but johnson takes them well, and he comes baqck with some shots of his own before the bell ending the round sounds off.

Round 7: Dempsey is still moving in, but with not as much of the tenacity that he exhibited in the earlier rounds. johnson realizes that dempsey is weary, and he capitalizes off of this. a jolting right uppercut and a left hook stuns dempsey. dempsey holds on, but johnson is again right on him with solid punches and dempsey goes down! dempsey is up at five, and johnson gets right on him with solid head punches and jolting shots to the midsection. dempsey is staggering right now, and johnson tries to finish, but the bell saves dempsey.

Round 8: Johnson, knowing dempsey might have recovered is more patient now. dempsey is bobbing and weaving, and johnson uses his jab a little. dempsey gets under his jab and lands his left hook, but johnson presses on. dempsey throws another left hook and johnson parries it, and gets in a left lead and an overhand right, followed by a left uppercut and a right cross, and dempsey is down again! he is up at eight, and johnson follows up with smashing combos and dempsey hits the mat four the fourth time. dempsey is up at seven, takes the eight count and continues, even thought his face is slightly cut and he clearly is light headed from the punishment he had been taking. johnson moves in and dempsey is defenseless against the sharpness of the Galvestonian's punches. dempsey's head is rocked back, and he is not fighting back. so at this point mark conn's arm is pulled. he separates the two and waivs his hands signaling that the fight is over.


buffer: the winner by a knockout, at 2:57 seconds of the third round, Jaaack Joohnsooon!

The crowd is stunned.johnson smiles to the crowd and walks out happy. that was great that johnson evened it up. now lets go over to Boston.

Hi, and Welcome to Boston Garden in Boston, MA, for the second meeting between Rocky Marciano and Sonny Liston in the eastern Conference. Rocky was 188 today and liston was 215. lets see the tale of the tape.

Rocky Marciano

age: 30
height: 5'-11"
weight: 188
reach: 67"
record: 45-0-0 (40ko)

Sonny Liston

age: 28
height: 6'-1"
weight: 215
reach: 84"
record: 28-1-0 (18ko)

I had a chance to interview the Brockton Blockbuster.

butterfly1964: How do you plan to beat liston this time around Rock?

marciano: I have to get under his long jab, but I know I can do it.

Now Liston makes his way to the ring, and a few boos could be heard, while he walks down the aisle accompanied by his trainer Willie Reddish. and Marciano comes in and 65,000 fans show their appreciation for the Brockton Blockbuster. Rocky is accompanied by his long time trainer, Charlie Goldman. now here is michael buffer.

michael buffer: Ladies and gentlemen, introducing from Philadelphia, PA wearing white trunks with black trim, he stands six feet one, weighing 215, The Big Bear, Charrles Sonny Liston! Liston! and his opponent, from brockton, MA wearing black trunks with white trim, standing five eleven, weighing one hundred eighty-eight pounds, The Brockton Blockbusteeeeeeer Roooockyyyyyyyy Maaaarrcianooooooooooo!!! Marcianooooooooooooo!!(the crowd applaudes rocky) 15 rounds!

conn: protect yourself at all times. in the event of a knockdown, i want you to go to the farthest neutral corner until I tell you to come out. three knockdown rule is waived. any questions? ok, shake hands.

once again, liston stares hard at marciano. marciano stares back in anticipation.

Round 1: again marciano is in his croutch, and he tries to press the fight, but liston again keeps him away with his jab. marciano is throwing wild hard shots and a couple land, but liston walks right through them. liston lands well, and both men get into a slugfest. marciano is shaken up, but marciano holds and conn separates the two men.liston lands his straight right well, and marciano manages to get a right hand shot in that gains liston's respect. liston is jabbing and jabbing and throwing the occasional straight right and marciano is taking the punches. they clinch, and liston uses his superior strength to push marciano off once again. This time marciano survives the round.

Round 2: Liston and the rock both press the fight, and again they trade, and marciano is hurt again, but marciano's iron will withstands the onslaught. liston moves in and throws his left hook and it misses, and marciano counters with his famous suzie q, and liston is shook up a bit and clinches. he recovers quickly and he continues to jab and use his right hand. marciano ducks under alot of the punches, and manages to get in some of his own.

Round 3: Marciano is trying to get through liston thick jab and long reach, but liston holds him off. those jabs are hurting rocky, but he still moves in, throwing big shots that miss due to the distance between them thanks to liston's jab. marciano still keeps coming forward, liston uses his jab, but marciano ducks under it and lands a big uppercut, but listonpays it no mind as he throws some hard shots of his own. but marciano's croutching style makes liston miss. it's a pretty even round.

Round 4: Liston comes out throwing bombs. a few land, but marciano takes them. marciano throws some wild shots of his own, and some connect, stunning liston. marciano follows upwith solid body blows. liston recovers and get marciano against the ropes. but marciano holds and conn separates them. marciano is doing much better in this fight than the last one, for he is able to execute his game plan much better. marcianolands a big right hand that again stuns liston! marciano follows up and now has liston against the ropes and marciano keeps throwing a lot of punches. marciano is getting on liston similar to the way marciano got on top of evander holyfield in the first round. non-stop action. somehow, this gladiator never stops throwing punches. liston is at this point out on his feet and defenseless, but the bell saves him from a stoppage.

Round 5: Liston is a little shaken up, but he battles back from it blocking marciano's blows and landing some of his own. liston uses his jab effectively and a big left hook stuns marciano. liston wants to make marciano pay for that last round as he corners marciano and pummels him. liston throws literal atomic fusion bombs with lightning speed and pinpoint accuray to the body and jaw. marciano cannot survive this tremendous punishment and he crumbles to the canvas. marciano is slow in getting up and liston finishges him off much like he did cleveland williams with crisp body shots and slegehammer blows to rocky's temple. marciano goes down for good. it was a good effort by marciano, but not enough.

michel buffer: The winner by a knockout at 1:36 of the fifth round, Sonny Lisston!

The crowd quickly files out of the stadium in dissapointment, once again.

liston: He hits hard, he nearly had me in the fourth,but I knew what I had to, when I had to do it. I think it's in the bag, and a fight with either tyson or louis is inevitable.

Great action. this is what i'm talking about. non-stop action from two great sluggers, and a suprise ending. well, that was alot, so I think i'll end it here. once again the final scores are, Part1-johnson tko8, and Part2-liston ko5!

butterfly1964 here, saying peace out.

yea i know

Liston was the only guy he wanted to come out of retirement to fight because he didn't like him. Marciano wanted to come out of retirement to fight Patterson because he liked the guy,

He hated Liston because Liston was sort of an ******* and probably because of his mob ties. If you read Marciano's bio you'll understand that Marciano's enitre family couldn't stand the mob, he thought they were an embarassment to the Italians.

I believe fully that if Marciano and Liston met 5 times Marciano would win at least 3 or 4 of the 5 times

Hello once again, and welcome to the second round of Playoff Boxing. Here are tonights fights.

Western Conference:

4. George Foreman vs. 1. Muhammad Ali - Sam Houston Coliseum in Houston, TX for fight #3.

Eastern Conference:

5. Mike Tyson vs. 1. Joe Louis - Madison Square Garden in New York, NY for fight #3.

Now let's go over to Houston, TX. :boxing:

Dempsey 1919
05-18-2006, 09:01 PM
http://coxscorner.tripod.com/Images/foreman1.jpg vs. http://www.megacalendars.com/images/posters/Muhammad%20Ali%20Poster%20AA882.jpg

Welcome to Sam Houston Coliseum, where Foreman will try to bounce back from a game two loss that occured just 6 miles away in the Astrodome to ali. Foreman weighed in at 220, and Ali was 210. now let's go to the tale of the tape.

George Foreman

age: 24
height: 6'-4"
weight: 220
reach: 81"
record: 38-0-0 (35ko)

Muhammad Ali

age: 25
height: 6'-3"
weight: 210
reach: 83"
record: 29-0-0 (23ko)

And now Muhammad Ali is coming in to the ring wearing a red robe. Muhammad almost looks like Santa Claus in that robe! he is also wearing red shoes. some people cheer when he comes.

George Foreman comes in the 65,000 screaming fans show their appreciation. foreman is wearing a black robe.

Michael Buffer: Ladiiiiies and geeentlemeeen, introducing, from houston, texas, wearing red trunks with white trim, he stands six feet three, he weighs two hundred eleven pounds, he is the greatest, muhamaaad aaaliiii!!(a few cheers could be heard among the fans) and his opponent, also from houston, he's wearing black trunks with white trim, he stands six foot four, he weighs two hundred twenty pounds, "biiiiiiiiiiiiiig" geooooooooorge fooooooooooooremaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan!(65,000 people scream hysterically)

here is the referee mark conn giving the instructions.

conn: alright boys, you know the rules of the texas state athletic boxing commision. i want a good clean fight, remember to protect yourself at all times, any questions? ok, good luck.

Round 1: Ali comes out agressively, quickly throwing stiff shots. foreman walks through them and throws shots of his own. they get into a clinch, and they both are trying desperately to outmuscle the other, but mark conn pulls them apart. Ali dances and moves and suprisingly still presses the fight, moving in with leads and moving back when needed. still foreman gets some good shots and makes the fight close: both men seem settled and rested.

Round 2: Foreman is still patient and is cutting off the ring, and ali is on his toes and puts good punches together. they clinch and foreman does some body work to weaken and slow ali down. foreman then pushes ali away. ali uses his jab and straight right well. foreman gets ali on the ropes and lands some good head and body shots. ali continues to out box foreman in ring center as foreman throws jabs and straight rights that land at a steady percentage: ali needs rest from that exchange, but foreman looks pretty good.

Round 3: Foreman comes out and uses his jab well, and his straight right land effectively. ali still is jabbing himself and trying to stay away, not being as aggresive as last time. Ali still cannot stay away from foreman for too long, because foreman is right in him swarming into him like joe frazier did, without the bobbing and weaving: dundee is giving ali a good working over cause he is exhausted. saddler however, is calmly giving george instructions and foreman listens intently.

Round 4: Ali keeps moving and grooving, and foreman throws big punches. somehow, foreman gets ali up against the ropes and pummels him, landing crisp, clean body and head blows, that stun ali. when they separate, ali attemps to stay away, but those shots took their toll and he is a bit slower. ali layes on the ropes to recover and after about a minute, he comes back with a tremendous flurry that rocks foreman. ali moves in to finsh, but foreman hangs tough: ali still needs a little rest, but so does george.

Round 5: Foreman is a bit tired from the last round and ali seems to have recovered, becasue he is now fast on his feet and is fighting from the periphery well. foreman still lands some good shots, but foreman is now missing wild shots due to his decreased accuracy by way of fatique. still he fights on landing some body blows. ali uses his jab well and counterpunches george. ali now is looking better as george tires trying to catch the elusive ali, but most of the time falls short because of the lack of conditioning of the part pf George Foreman: Foreman clearly needs some rest, and ali looks a bit better.

Round 6: Ali is still on his toes for most of the round and he dazzles foreman dancing and he performs his ali shuffle followed by his famous one-two. foreman takes it, but he has no answer to those shots because ali slips george's big bombs. george comes back with a left uppercut that rocks ali and he goes back on the ropes as the round ends: ali is a little shaken up by that round, and foreman seems OK.

Round 7: Foreman is a bit tired of chasing after ali and throwing the amount of puunches that he did. ali jabs and jabs and looks for an opening for the attack. foreman hits ali with a right hand, but foreman's power has greatly diminished because of the lack of stamina. ali decides to carry the attack. ali throws a one-two that stuns george and ali follows it up with left and right hooks to the jaw and then a textbook over hand right that numbs foreman and foreman stumbles and then he clinches. ali pushes the now tired foreman off and he continues. ali keeps fighting from the periphery and boxes well: Foreman needs a lot of rest, but ali looks well kept.

Round 8: Ali comes out trying to end it, but foreman is taking every punch that ali throws at him. ali is now teeing off at george's head, and george answers with a missed right uppercut, and he goes down from a slip, but the crowd thinks he was dropped. mark conn was right on it signaling "no knockdown". ali keeps on george landing some hard flatfooted shots. foreman has no answer as ali keeps doing this until the bell rings: foreman's eye is well puffed up, ali is unmarked.

Round 9: Ali is doing the same thing he did in the last round, presuring the tired george. george seems to have lost the firepower he had in the earlier rounds, so ali takes over, outmuscling him and out pointing him. foreman is taking all the shots and still fights back with a thunderous right from nowhere that has ali worried. ali lays on the ropes as foreman moves inon him with some good shots as the bell rings: both men are visibly tired, especially foreman.

Round 10: Ali is now on his toes and staying away from foreman, because he is more cautious, realizing hat even when tired, the 24year old foreman is still dangerous. ali dances along the periphery, and he is gonna stay on his bicycle for as long as his elusive feet can take him. foreman is slow in cutting off the ring and is still lokking a might sluggish. this is ali's round as he keeps along ring center and he boxes well: foreman's eye is a bit cut, and ali is still unmarked.

Round 11: Ali keeps dancing around foreman and landing his jab. foreman jab and parrs a little, but to no avail, as ali's two inch advantage in reach is not wasted. foreman attempts to make a fight of it, landing a fast left jab and then one of his wide left hooks that momentarily stun ali. ali recovers and continues to dance: ali looks pretty good and foreman is trying desperately to get some needed energy.

Round 12: Ali is flatfooted, but still moving. Ali is moving welland slipping those foreman haymakers with ease. foreman however answers back with a good left hook but ali walks through it. foreman follows up with a one-two combo, and ali is pushed againmst the ropes where foreman is pounding him with good blows, harder blows than in the last few rounds. I suppose foreman has gained some well needed energy. foreman does this until they clinch. ali keeps staying away and survives this round: saddler is giving foreman instructions and closing that eye, and dundee is applying ice to ali's very slightly puffed up eye.

Round 13: Foreman fights back and lands some good blows. ali comes back lands some good blows that stun foreman. foreman is tried and ali cashes in on it. ali throws lighning fast stable punches and foreman slumps down to the canvas! foreman is up at 5, and ali keeps on him trying to end it and the bell ending the round sounds: foreman looks like he's ready to go, so does ali. both men are tired.

Round 14: Foreman comes out, trying to land that one big bomb. ali still moves well and is content to win a decision. foreman keeps on him. ali still is on his toes a bit, but he stops periodically and takes more breaks, because he is a bit tired. foreman gets him on the ropes and hits to the body for a half a round, and then steps back. ali throws a prayer of a right, but misses and foreman capitalizes with an uppercut. ali stays away for the rest of the round: ali still is tired, but not as much as foreman.

Round 15: Ali comes out and throws some good sots and then dances away from foreman. foreman is aattemptinfg furiously to get ali out of there before the final bell rings, but he is slow and tired and ali dominates the sluggish foreman. this is a beautiful finish for the dancing master as he decimates foreman with his left jab and his myriad of punches. foreman looks similar to the way he did when he fought jimmy young. But yet still, foreman throws a vicious left hook in an attempt to end the fight, but ali pulls back from it far enough for the punch to just graze his jaw and it has no effect on ali's senses. ten seconds are left as ali throws two laft jabs and left and right hooks and the bell rings. the fight is over. ali and foreman embrace and walk back to their respective corners.

Foreman was down in the thirteenth. Foreman was cut in the right eye, and ali's left eye was slightly puffed up. here is michael buffer with the decision.

yea i know

Liston was the only guy he wanted to come out of retirement to fight because he didn't like him. Marciano wanted to come out of retirement to fight Patterson because he liked the guy,

He hated Liston because Liston was sort of an ******* and probably because of his mob ties. If you read Marciano's bio you'll understand that Marciano's enitre family couldn't stand the mob, he thought they were an embarassment to the Italians.

I believe fully that if Marciano and Liston met 5 times Marciano would win at least 3 or 4 of the 5 times

rocky would have won every time, liston was a quitter, marciano would have never quit. as soon as he felt suzieq he would have stayed down for the 10 count to avoid further punishment

Jack Johnson

age: 32
height: 6'-1"
weight: 209
reach: 74"
record: 67-6-10 (49ko)

Jack Dempsey

age: 28
height: 6'-1"
weight: 190
reach: 77"
record: 61-4-9 (49ko)

And now Jack Dempsey can be seen by the crowd and he does not exactly get a heartfelt ovation. boos can be clearly heard. Dempsey is wearing a black robe.

Jack Johnson is now in the ring and the crowd erupts in applause. Johnson is wearing a black robe. here is our ring announcer for tonight, Michael Buffer!

michael buffer: Ladieeees aaaaand geeentlemen! presenting second round fights in the western Conference! introducing, from manassah, CO, wearing solid black trunks also six one and weighs one ninety pounds, the manassah mauler Jaaack Deempseeey!!!!(boos fill the arena) and his opponent, from Galveston, TX wearing gray trunks with black trim, he stands six feet one inch, weighing two hundred nine pounds, the Galveston Giaaant, Jaaaaaaaaack Joooooohnsooooooooooon(the crowd cannot control itself as they scream louder and louder) Llllllllllllllllllets get ready to ruumblllllllllllllllllllllllllllee!!!

conn: You boys both know the rules of the Texas State Athletic Boxing Commision. protect yourself at all times, and break clean. shakes hands, and come out fighting!

Round 1: Dempsey is bobbing and weaving and johnson is flatfooted. again, this seems to be a methodical battle for dempsey, and a tactical battle with johnson, as johnson lets dempsey carry the fight. dempsey is lunging with hard jolting shots, and johnson pulls back from them. johnson occasionally goes in with a right hand. johnson has to use the right hand whenever he can, because that is dempsey's achilled heel. dempsey is lunging and throwing shots, but johnson is able to either parry them, or tie dempsey up.

Round 2: Now dempsey realizes that johnson is on to his plan, so he is more cautious. dempsey moves in and out and johnson jabs a little. johnson seems to be using the same guidelines that the legendary gene tunney used in his fight with dempsey. johnson looks pretty fast on his feet at the moment, as dempsey cannot seem to find the target. johnson is countering well with hard lefts and rights. johnson is boxing well, and tying dempsey up when necessary. johnson does well in this round.

Round 3: Dempsey is still in his croutch, looking for that one big punch to take johnson out of there. at this point, johnson is too fast for dempsey. johnson has learned well from his last series with max schmeling, for max also alot of the time fights from the panther-like croutch that dempsey impliments. Jack (johnson that is :D )is now landing solid rights to dempsey's face, but he takes them, and dempsey has his jaw tucked in to minimize the damage. johnson is scoring well, and dempsey keeps coming in, but everytime he does that, johnson is right there to hold him off with his superior strength.

Round 4: Johnson is in his stance, periodically lunging in with some hard shots that jarrs dempsey. dempsey still keeps coming in, and johnson throws a lightning fast fluury that rocks dempsey. dempsey recovers and fights back though, landing his trademark left hook and johnson is a little shaken up, but when dempsey follows up, johnson still has enough strength to neutralize him in a clinch. they fight on, and from then on, and johnson does enough to win the round.

Round 5: Johnson is now carrying the attack, for dempsey is a bit tired from lunging at him all night, but dempsey holds strong. johnson is doing well, and holds his hands up in perfect position to protect his chin. dempsey just can't seem to penetrate his defense. dempsey however is not frustrated, but he presses on. johnson hurts dempsey again with a right, and now dempsey is hurt. johnson is now teeing off on jack's face, and gets him on the chin once, but jack survives the barrage and they continue until the round ends.

Round 6: Dempsey now goes out like a madman. he throws thunderous shots, only to be twisted up by johnson's powerful arms in the clinches. johnson is patient and methodical. johnson is now hitting dempsey with good shots, but dempsey fights back landing two right hands and a left hook, but johnson takes them well, and he comes back with some shots of his own before the bell ending the round sounds off.

Round 7: Dempsey is still moving in, but with not as much of the tenacity that he exhibited in the earlier rounds. johnson jabs and lands some good shots while holding dempsey and pushing him off. dempsey is not as aggresive and instead just tries to win some rounds. dempsey lands some good shots, but it's still all johnson. johnson lands good shots and has dempsey holding on till the end of the round.

Round 8: Johnson, knowing dempsey might have recovered is more patient now. dempsey is bobbing and weaving, and johnson uses his jab a little. dempsey gets under his jab and lands his left hook, but johnson presses on. dempsey throws another left hook and johnson parries it, and gets in a left lead and an overhand right, and dempsey is hurt! dempsey is in the corner and johnson tries to end it but dempsey survives and comes back with some thunderouspower shots that hurt johnson big time! dempsey puts on enough pressure to get this round.

Round 9: both men comes out. dempsey is in hiscroutch, pressing the fight, and johnson is moving and bouncing around a little. dempsey lunges, but johnson is there to tie him up. dempsey is strong, but johnson has that little extra strength to tie dempsey up in the clinches, but he can only do it for a little while, cause dempsey knows how to free himself and pound the body, which he does. johnson manages to get away and they cotinue. johnson jabs and waits for dempsey's lunges. dempsey corners johnson occasionally and work the head and body, and johnson counter punches when he can. the round is about even.

Round 10: Johnson lunges in with a hard right that dempsey takes. dempsey then croutches low and lunges and lunges, but johnson is fast and can anticipate what dempsey is doing. johnson is now looking better counterpunching and tying dempsey up when they get into a clinch. dempsey however does not get frustrated, but he just sticks to his game plan. johnson is landing his straight right well, and dempsey takes them. johnson looks fast and skillful, but dempsey keeps on coming. dempsey lunges with a right misses that, and then a fast left hook that stuns johnson! johnson holds on as the round ends.

Round 11: Dempsey is croutched low and pounces on johnson with his best shots. johnson is hurt and holds on and ties dempsey up. johnson tries to make a fight of it, but it's all dempsey as he pounds the body and johnson is defenseless. johnson lands some shots, but dempsey walks through them and lands shots of his own.

Round 12: Dempsey comes out and throws big shots and johnson tries to avoid them. johnson is moving away trying to survive dempsey's fury and dempsey is right on him. johnson tries to hold but it is futile. dempsey is now strong in the clinches and looks like a madman landing some powerful shots to the body and johnson is this close to going down, but the bell saves him.

Round 13: Johnson tries to stay away from dempsey. dempsey comes after him, but he is a bit tired. johnson spends most of the round trying to stay away and dempsey spends most of the round swarming into him. johnson does lands some steady shots but the harder punches are coming from dempsey. it's about even.

Round 14: Johnson is countering dempsey's blows and trying to stay away. dempsey lands some good shots, but johnson survives them. johnson for the first half of the round is trying to stay away from dempsey and dempsey for the first half is going after johnson. in the second half, johnson threw more punches and was more aggressinve. this is a good round for johnson as he puts some good punches together and does good in the clinches.

Round 15: Both men are pulling out all the stops and dempsey is going after johnson with a vengeance. for about 30 sec, they trade and johnson is hurt. dempsey smells blood and goes for the ko, but johnson cleverly makes him miss and johnson counterpunches. dempsey presses the fight, but johnson looks sharp as he jabs and lands punches and avoids punches as the round and the fight ends!

There have been no knockdowns. dempsey was puffed up against the eyes, johnson had a small portion of blood comingfrom his nose. here is michael buffer with the decision.

buffer: Judge Artie Aidala scores it 8-7 for johnson! Judge Tony Castellano scores it 8-6-1 for johnson!(applause is heard) Referee Mark Conn scores it 7-5-3 for johnson, winner by unanimous decision, Jaaaaaaack Jooooohnsoooooooooooon!

The crowd is joyous. johnson smiles to the crowd and walks out happy. that was great that johnson evened it up. now lets go over to Philadelphia. :boxing:

Marcianoo!! and his opponent, from Philadelphia, PA wearing black trunks with white trim, he stands six feet one, weighing 212, The Biiig Beeaaaar, Chaaaaaarrles Sooonnnnnnnny Liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiistooooooooooooon! Liiiiiistoooooooon! (the crowd applaudes Sonny) 15 rounds!

conn: protect yourself at all times. in the event of a knockdown, i want you to go to the farhtest neutral corner until I tell you to come out. three knockdown rule is waived. any questions? ok, shake hands.

Round 1: marciano is in his croutch, and he tries to press the fight, but liston keeps him away with his jab. liston lands his straight right well, and marciano manages to get a goog suzieq in that liston takes. liston is jabbing and jabbing and throwing the occasional straight right and marciano is taking the punches. they clinch, and liston uses his superior strength to push marciano off. liston keeps using his rapier-like jab to keep rocky off balance. rocky is taking every punch that liston throws at him, including his left hook.

Round 2: Liston keeps using his jab and rocky cannot land a punch because his arms are too short, so he starts hitting his arms to try and weaken them, but liston ties marciano up and pushes him off. marciano's eyes are puffy from the punishment he is laking. marciano lands a big right hand that liston basically walks though and throws a one-two-three combination that staggers marciano. marciano somehow survives the follow-up onslaught from Mr. Liston.

Round 3: liston again uses his jab, but somehow marciano gets under it and uppercuts liston, but sonny took it well. marciano follows up with a couple of body blows and liston holds marciano, pushes him off and stuns him with a right hand. marciano shakes off the effects and keeps coming, but cannot seem to land. it's all liston as he landscrisp clean combos to the body and head, hurting rocky.

Round 4: Marciano comes out, determined as ever. he throws wild shots that liston slips and then liston takes advantageby throwing a left hook and down goes marciano! marciano is up at three and liston goes after him throwing big shots. marciano is up against the ropes and somehow survives the punishment.

Round 5: liston is hitting marciano with that pile-driver left jab and marciano is cut over the right eye. liston keeps jabbing and lands a one-two that rocks marciano, but marciano keeps on fighting. they get into a slugfest, and rocky lands one out of the blue that stuns liston! liston holds on and recovers. liston and marciano trade until the round ends.

Round 6: Marciano comes out and tries to end it, but he is too wild and all his shots miss without liston doing a thing to avoid them. liston throws a left hook that grazes marciano's jaw but it is enough to hurt him. marciano is cut in both eyes now, for they cannot take the punishing power of Sonny Liston's fists. liston is dominating this round, hurting marciano periodically, and capitalizing on his 84 inch reach and marciano's 67 inch reach. liston throws a big left hook and falls down, but the referee rules it a slip as the round ends.

Round 7: Marciano is still taking alot of punishment, but has done little to liston due to his pipe-lengthed jab. liston's reach is the difference here as he uses it effectively. like Foreman-Frazier, it seems that marciano's swarming style is all worng for power sluggers with iron chins. marciano is still fresh, though, cause he is well conditioned. marciano lands a big shot and liston holds on a bit and marciano pounds the body and arms. liston holds on as the round ends.

Round 8: Marciano is stronger now. can that be the difference? liston keeps jabbing and using power shots. both of marciano's eyes aare cut and swollen shut. marciano is now going on smell and feel. liston pummels marciano on the ropes and marciano looks horrible. referee mark conn stops it and holds up Sonny Liston's hand!

michael buffer: The winner by a technical knockout at 1:45 of the eighth round, Sooonnyyyyyy Liiiiiiisstooooooooon!(the crowd is estatic as liston has a comanding 3-0 lead)

Hello, and welcome to Sam Houston Coliseum, where the two champs from Houston will square off, ali and foreman. speed and grace versus thunder and lightning. ali weighed in at 215, and foreman was 219. I interviewed foreman earlier today.

butterfly1964: Well how will you go about defeating Ali?

foreman: As the great Joe Louis said, "He can run, but he can't hide!"

Wow!! well, there you have it folks. here is the tale of the tape.

George Foreman

age: 24
height: 6'-4"
weight: 219
reach: 81"
record: 38-0-0 (35ko)

Muhammad Ali

age: 25
height: 6'-3"
weight: 215
reach: 83"
record: 29-0-0 (23ko)

And now Muhammad Ali is coming in to the ring wearing a baby blue robe. Muhammad goes in to the ring and shadowboxes. some people cheer when he comes.

George Foreman comes in the 70,000 screaming fans show their appreciation. foreman is wearing a white robe.

Michael Buffer: Ladiiiiies and geeentlemeeen, introducing, from houston, texas, wearing light blue trunks with white trim, he stands six feet three, he weighs two hundred fifteen pounds, he is the greatest, muhamaaad aaaliiii!!(a few cheers could be heard among the fans) and his opponent, also from houston, he's wearing solid white trunks, he stands six foot four, he weighs two hundred nineteen pounds, "biiiiiiiiiiiiiig" geooooooooorge fooooooooooooremaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan!(70,000 people scream hysterically)

here is the referee mark conn giving the instructions.

conn: alright boys, you know the rules of the texas state athletic boxing commision. i want a good clean fight, remember to protect yourself at all times, any questions? ok, good luck.

Round 1: ali circles foreman and throws some jabs that foreman takes. foreman is cutting off the ring well landing some body shots that ali takes. ali then gets out of the corner to land some stinging combo's that doesn't seem to bother george. both men use their feet in this one, as ali boxes around foreman and tries to stay away like he did with sonny liston, and foremanuses his speed of foot to cut the ring off and nuetralize ali's speed. ali win's this round as george cannot find his target that much: dundee is telling muhammad to keep on the run and land shots where he sees an opening, and saddler is telling foreman to be patient and pick his shots.

Round 2: both men do the same thing they did in the last round, but now foreman gets a bit sloppy and ali capitalizes and lands some right hands. foreman is taking them and he presses on. ali lands some solid combinations, but he still keeps on the run. foreman still cuts the ring off and lands some body shots in an attempt to weaken ali. ali uses his jab, and so does foreman to an extent: foreman looks pretty good and so does ali. both men are up at the warning bell.

Round 3: ali still moves for the most part, but is going more flatfooted to increase the punching power. foreman cuts off the ring well with unusual quickness for a man that size! ali still gets some jabs in as he now is landing his fast fluury of hooks on foreman's face. foreman hits ali with a jab that rocks his head back. ali is stunned for a moment. ali still looks pretty good landing alot of punches on foreman: ali rests for a while and so does foreman, and saddler is seen giving foreman special pointers.

Round 4: Ali comes out agressively, quickly throwing stiff shots. foreman walks through them and throws shots of his own. they get into a clinch, and they both are trying desperately to outmuscle the other, but mark conn pulls them apart. Ali dances and moves and suprisingly still presses the fight, moving in with leads and moving back when needed. foreman gets some good shots and ali is hurt! foreman follows up with a left hook and ali is down! ali gets up at 5 and foreman continues with a one-two and ali is staggered. foreman hits him with vicious shots and ali cannot take the thrashing and the ref stops it.

buffer: the winner by a tko at 1:34 of the foruth round, Geooooooorge Fooooremaaaaaaan!!(the crowd goes wild)

that was great. foreman ties the series up at 2-2. now lets go over to New York. :boxing:

conn: alright, now i want a good clean fight. protect yoursef at all times. three knockdown rule is waived, so is the standing 8-count, go to a neutral corner upon scoring a KD, break when i tell you to break. a fighter will not be saved by the bell when knocked down, except for the final round. ok? shake hands.

Round 1: Tyson comes out bobbing and weaving and louis is flatfooted. tyson gets in a good left hook, and louis takes it. louis is patient waiting for tyson to make a mistake. tyson jabs and throws a left hook that louis blocks. tyson is pressing the fight, while louis counterpunches and makes tyson pay if he makes a mistake.

Round 2: Louis is now throwing more punches and is pressing the fight a little, and they trade blows. both of them take the punches and they get into a clinch. louis is able to push him away a little. tyson slips a jab and gets in a good uppercut that rocks louis. louis recovers and fights back. tyson is landing his right hand well, and louis keeps jabbing and looking for that spot.

Round 3: Tyson is throwing big shots and louis capitalizes off of it by throwina big right hand to tyson's jaw followed by a pulverizing right to the kidney. tyson is hurt and louis knows it. louis throws his classic combinations of left and right short compact hooks followed by a left lead and and overhand right and tyson is staggered but he will not go down. louis still keeps on him with those punches. tyson fights back, but this is clearly louis' round.

Round 4: Tyson is a bit weary and louis is throwing hard shots to the body and an uppercut to the head. louis is now pressing the fight and tyson is concerned. tyson lunges in with a prayer of a right cross but it misses. louis keeps on tyson, but tyson does manage to get in some shots of his own. tyson spends most of his time on the ropes and trying to make it a good fight, and this is a good round for louis again.

Round 5: Tyson comes and fights back after a pep talk with his trainer kevin rooney. tyson jabs and lands a strsight right that drops louis! louis is up at 2, and tyson tries to finish, but louis quickly recovers and tyson still is pressuring the fight. tyson lands some hard combinations that worry louis. louis is mow trying to survive. he looks to counter mike's blows. he gets in some right hands an manages to last the round.

Round 6: Tyson is impatient and throws alot of wild shots that louis blocks. louis throws some picture perfect shots that stun tyson. louis is now measuring and throws crushing blows. tyson fights back, but louis is too much for him. louis tries to take tyson out, but the bell saves him.

Round 7: Tyson comes out and tries to end it, but the difference between the two is that tyson is frustrated and louis is calm. louis measures and throws a textbook right to the head that snaps tysons head back. louis finishes with a left hood to the head. tyson gets up but staggers around and the ref stops it.

buffer: The winner at 1:10 of the seventh round by a technical knockout, Jooeee Loouuisss!!

so louis, as well as foreman evens the series up. what will happen next? find out next time. The final scores are Part1-foreman tko4 and Part2-louis tko7. This is butterfly1964 saying good day! :boxing:

http://www.cyberboxingzone.com/images/sl.jpg vs. http://www.italian-american.com/marciano.jpg

Hi, and Welcome to Convention Hall in Philadelphia, PA, for the fourth and possibly final meeting between Sonny Liston and Rocky Marciano in the eastern Conference. Today, Liston was in phenominal shape at 206, and Rocky was 190. Earlier, I had a chance to interview Marciano.

butterfly1964: Well, Rocky, how will you stave off elimination?

marciano: I have to keep pounding the body and avoiding his shots. I promise that I will win. I feel great about this. I'm in great shape, and I know I can't lose.

butterfly1964: Thank you Rock.

Can Rocky make good on his prediction? lets see the tale of the tape.

Sonny Liston

age: 28
height: 6'-1"
weight: 206
reach: 84"
record: 28-1-0 (18ko)

Rocky Marciano

age: 30
height: 5'-11"
weight: 190
reach: 67"
record: 45-0-0 (40ko)

Now Marciano makes his way to the ring, and a few boos could be heard, while he walks down the aisle. and Liston comes in and 50,000 fans show their appreciation for the Big Bear. He is the 30 to 1 favorite to beat marciano. now here is michael buffer.

michael buffer: Ladies and gentlemen, introducing, from brockton, MA wearing solid black trunks, standing five eleven, weighing one hundred ninety pounds, The Brockton Blockbuster Roockyyy Maarcianooo!!! Marcianoo!! and his opponent, from Philadelphia, PA wearing black trunks with white trim, he stands six feet one, weighing two ooooh, six, The Biiig Beeaaaar, Chaaaaaarrles Sooonnnnnnnny Liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiistooooooooooooon! Liiiiiistoooooooon! (the crowd applaudes Sonny) 15 rounds!

conn: protect yourself at all times. in the event of a knockdown, i want you to go to the farhtest neutral corner until I tell you to come out. three knockdown rule is waived. any questions? ok, shake hands.

Round 1: Marciano is in his croutch, and he tries to press the fight, but liston keeps him away with his jab. liston lands his straight right well, and marciano manages to get a goog suzieq in that liston takes. liston is jabbing and jabbing and throwing the occasional straight right and marciano is taking the punches. liston lands a big right hand and marciano is down! marciano is up at four and they continue. liston is now teeing off at rocky's head, and marciano is just laying on the ropes trying to survive the round and he doess.

Round 2: Liston keeps using his jab and rocky cannot land a punch because his arms are too short, so he starts hitting his arms to try and weaken them, but liston ties marciano up and pushes him off. marciano's eyes are puffy from the punishment he is taking. marciano lands a big right hand that liston basically walks though and throws a one-two-three combination that staggers marciano. liston again is pummeling marciano and marciano just slumps down on the canvas. the referee begins the count and marciano is up at nine. liston continues with lighning speed and gets a left hook and a right to a body and a left lead to the chin and marciano cannot get up this time. liston moves on to the Eastern Conference Finals to face either Joe Louis or Mike Tyson!


michael buffer: The winner by a technical knockout at 1:55 of the second round, Sooonnyyyyyy Liiiiiiisstooooooooon!(the crowd is estatic as liston wins in four straight games)

liston: Now I'm gonna destroy that ***** Mike Tyson!

That was a great fight. thank you for joining me today. that will be it for today. once again the final scores are, Part1-dempseyko1, and Part2-liston ko2!

Liston could have been floored by walcott given the same senario of being caught off balance

I don't understand though Marciano never got floored, and the longest he was down for was 2 seconds so i honestly don't understand

two things
i saw the same fight and i didn't see a hurt man
and
how can u be hurt when being caught off balance and getting up at 2

i mean thats like saying Ali was hurt when Wepner knocked him down for a 7 count, and yet Ali was obviously not hurt (more or less)

Marciano got caught off balance and was down for a few seconds, shot up and fought 12 more rounds only faltering when he got chemicals in his eyes. That really doesn't sound like a hurt man to me and he didn't look hurt either.

The way he dominated fighters and pushed them around. Liston is the harder hitter, but Tyson is the more explosive puncher. Liston will land one hard punch but Tyson lands serveral hard punchers in the same amount of time so it's just the way you look at it.

I don't think Tyson is stronger. Liston was extremely physically strong for his size, was bigger than Tyson framewise, with bigger hands and wrists. Also keep in mind that Tyson never exhibited great strength in the clinch. Tyson had many gifts but great strength was not one of them. He just LOOKED like one of the strongest guys to get into the ring.

Tyson has got bigger breasts than Liston so I'll give you that.

Although Liston is built much bigger than Mike, just smaller tits!

Brassangel
05-29-2006, 06:45 PM
Liston was built longer, not bigger. Tyson often weighed about 10-12 pounds more than Liston in prime fighting shape, and his arms were far bigger around. His neck was thicker, and he had more leverage in his compact frame. Liston just had more reach. Even though I think Tyson could win this matchup, here's what Butterfly will do because it's going to be a Liston vs. Ali final:

Liston has been pounding people into the ground, and walking through punches. Against Tyson, he'll suddenly use his monkey-armed jab like Ali to keep Tyson at a distance, and knock his block off. He'll probably win in 4-5 fights. While this goes completely against both fighter's styles, butterfly will do anything to make Liston win this matchup. Given their work rates, and their styles, this would NOT end up like Foreman vs. Frazier, but that's what butterfly will give you.

Liston was almost a bigger quitter than Tyson, so heart won't be too much of a factor here. We also have to pretend that niether Don King, nor the mob will be involved. Even so, it will be a joke series, which is a shame given how much fun this has been.

Yaman
05-30-2006, 05:37 PM
Liston bigger than Tyson? Hah! Not even when he had breasts against Patterson. Tyson had a bigger neck, biceps and arms, his chest is bigger etc, only thing that you may be right about is Tyson's calves, Liston's were bigger. Tyson was huge for his size, Liston was BIG for his size.

Anyway, cool to see this is still going on. Im lookinf forward to the next matches.

And now Muhammad Ali is coming in to the ring wearing a white robe. Muhammad goes in to the ring and shadowboxes. some people cheer when he comes.

George Foreman comes in the 40,000 screaming fans show their appreciation. foreman is wearing a red robe.

Michael Buffer: Ladiiiiies and geeentlemeeen, introducing, from houston, texas, wearing white trunks with red trim, he stands six feet three, he weighs two hundred seven pounds, he is the greatest, muhamaaad aaaliiii!!(a few cheers could be heard among the fans) and his opponent, also from houston, he's wearing red trunks with blue trim, he stands six foot four, he weighs two hundred twenty one and a half pounds, "biiiiiiiiiiiiiig" geooooooooorge fooooooooooooremaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan!(70,000 people scream hysterically)

here is the referee mark conn giving the instructions.

conn: alright boys, you know the rules of the texas state athletic boxing commision. i want a good clean fight, remember to protect yourself at all times, any questions? ok, good luck.

There is no clear favorite.

Round 1: Ali circles and pops his jab and he does some aggressive moving like he did with liston back in 1965 in Lewiston, Maine. he keeps jabbing and landing his conbinations, while foreman follows him around the ring. ali moves in with lightning speed and gets in rapid-fire combos and moving out to avoid foreman's big bombs. foreman gets some right hands in, but Ali walks through them and cleanly wins the round.

Round 2: Ali circles once again and is lightning fast as he sits on his punches and one-two's foreman to death. foreman's head snaps back, but foreman still presses on and lands some jabs and then a straight right, but most of his shots are missing big time! Foreman looks like a fool as Ali uses his superior head movemnet to avoid foreman's blows and ali throws a left and right hook to the body followed by a left and right hook to the head and quickly moves out of range. foreman gets a bit frustrated, and ali takes advantage of this by talking to foreman.

Round 3: Ali uses the same game plan, but he throws more punches. he still is moving, for he knows that one punch from foreman could end it. foreman is a bit weary but still manages to get ali on the ropes and land some good body blows and ali just covers up. when foreman backs off, ali is a bit winded from taking those shots, but he still moves and throws jabs and wins this round.

Round 4: Foreman looks sloppy as he misses huge left hook like Sonny Liston did against Cassius Clay back in 1964 in Miami Beach. ali looks great as he circles the ring with great speed and now carries the attack to his opponent. foreman doesn't know what to do. he is tired and is not landing clean blows like before. ali decides to make this a cruising round.

Round 5: Ali decides to step it up on his breathless opponent. he lands some hard shots tro the jaw and stun foreman. foreman fights back, but it is no use, as his blows lack the fire power that it usually has. Ali keeps throwng body hooks and follows it up with left and rights to the jaw. foreman cannot get off in this fight. Ali is confident and throws a lot of punches and foreman looks well spent.

Round 6: Ali now is patient and picks his shots carefully.he makes foreman miss some huge blows and throws a fast four punch combination. a left jab, a right cross, a left uppercut and overhand right and foreman goes down! foreman is up at the count of seven and fights back, showing his heart. ali, however has a big heart, too and is right on him throwing five consecutive left hooks on his tired opponent as big george goes down again! foreman is up at nine to face the inevitable. Ripping punches by Muhammad Ali and foreman goes down for the ten count, and it's all over! Ali takes a 3 to 2 series lead and will try to close out the series at home in the Astrodome.

Michael Buffer: The winner at 2:40 of the sixth round via ko, Muhammaaad Aaaliiii!

Ali: I'ma win the next game and go after Jack Dumbsey!(lol, that's Ali for you!)

well, Ali has won. Now let's go on over to The Garden. :cool:

conn: alright, now i want a good clean fight. protect yoursef at all times. three knockdown rule is waived, so is the standing 8-count, go to a neutral corner upon scoring a KD, break when i tell you to break. a fighter will not be saved by the bell when knocked down, except for the final round. ok? shake hands.

Round 1: Tyson comes out bobing a bit, and louis is in his perfect stance. louis lands a right and a left and tyson takes them and starts swingimg punches of his own. Louis quickly avoids them and counters with dynamite packed shots. louis continues on the slow and sluggish mike and lands some short body blows. louis lands a steady barrage of punches in the round.

Round 2: Louis comes out and is patient, landing his jab well. tyson looks frustrated and halfhearted. louis is hit with a good right, but he continues. louis gets tyson against the ropes and hurts him. tyson cannot take the severe punishment and just crumbles to the canvas. he is up at 5, and louis continues, but the bell saves tyson.

Round 3: Louis comes out like a madman and lands good body and head shots that stuns tyson. louis lands about 15 unanswered punches and tyson goes down! tyson cannot beat the count. It's all over. Mike Tyson is beaten in three rounds!

buffer: The winner at 0:56 seconds of the third round, Joooe Louuisss!

The crowd is again stunned. Louis looks pretty happy. Now he, like Ali has a chance to close out the series on his home terf in Detroit, Michigan.

And that will do it folks! Once again the final scores are Part1-ali ko6, and Part2-louis ko3. This is butterfly1964 saying goodnight!

Round 1: both men comes out. dempsey is in hiscroutch, pressing the fight, and johnson is moving and bouncing around a little. dempsey lunges, but johnson is there to tie him up. dempsey is strong, but johnson has that little extra strength to tie dempsey up in the clinches, but he can only do it for a little while, cause dempsey knows how to free himself and pound the body, which he does. johnson manages to get away and they cotinue. johnson jabs and waits for dempsey's lunges. dempsey corners johnson occasionally and work the head and body, and johnson counter punches when he can. the round is about even: dempsey and johnson are both fresh and ready as their trainer work them over.

Round 2: Johnson lunges in with a hard right that dempsey takes. dempsey then croutches low and lunges and lunges, but johnson is fast and can anticipate what dempsey is doing. johnson is now looking better counterpunching and tying dempsey up when they get into a clinch. dempsey however does not get frustrated, but he just sticks to his game plan. johnson is landing his straight right well, and dempsey takes them. johnson looks fast and skillful, but dempsey keeps on coming. dempsey lunges with a right misses that, and then a fast left hook that drops johnson! johnson is up at 5, and the bell rings, but the round still belongs to johnson: Blanken tells johnson to watch out for his left hook more, and Hayes says to keep pressing the fight and to not get discouraged.

Round 3: johnson comes out and anticipates dempsey's moves. dempsey moves in and manages to get throught johnson's defense and lands some good bodyshots that johnson takes. johnson is moving well and avoiding most of dempsey's blows. dempsey still is pressing the fight, and johnson is countering well and fighting a smart fight. dempsey is closing the gap however and lands crisp left hooks to the body while johnson is against the ropes as the round ends: Dempsey seems ready for action and johnson is a bit shaken up.

Round 4: Dempsey comes out and throws wild shots that all miss as johnson's defense carries him throught. dempsey however pushes johnson in a clinch and lands a right hand and johnson is hurt. dempsey follows up with a lefthook and a right cross and johnson is finished!

Welcome to The Houston Astrodome, where Muhammad Ali will try to eliminate George Foreman. Ali is a 5 to 1 favorite. Here's Ali being interviewed by one of our reporters.

Reporter: Well Muhammad, any predictions or poems you would like to voice?

Ali: No, not today. This is no time for talking. This is serious. This is about advancing. I'm ready to move on. I'm in fine shape, 204, the same weight I was when I fought Archie Moore. This is business as usual for me. If I win this tournament, then I will definetely be without a doubt, "The Greatest!"

That was a bold statement. Here is the tale of the tape.

Muhammad Ali

age: 25
height: 6'-3"
weight: 204
reach: 83"
record: 29-0-0 (23ko)

George Foreman

age: 24
height: 6'-4"
weight: 223
reach: 81"
record: 38-0-0 (35ko)

And now George foreman is walking down the aisle. Foreman is wearing a dark blue robe. He climbs in the ring and a few cheers could be heard. He now bounces around and shadowboxes.

Now Muhammad Ali is now bouncing to the ring center. Ali is wearing a black robe and the crowd goes wild when they see him. They want to see him move on. ali climbs in the ring, bounces up and down and does a quick ali shuffle to entertain the crowd. both men now take off their robes and they are getting ready. Now michael buffer is seen.

Michael Buffer: Ladiiiiies and geeentlemeeen, welcooome to the houston Astrodome for this secound round playoff. the referee is mark conn, the two judges are artie aidala, and tony castellano! presenting 15 rounds of boxing. introducing, from houston, texas, wearing dark blue trunks with black trim, he stands six foot four, he weighs two hundred twenty-three pounds, "biiiiig" geooorge foooremaan!(a few cheers could be heard among the fans) and his opponent, also from houston, he's wearing black trunks with white trim, he stands six feet three, he weighs two hundred fooour pounds, he is the greatest, muhaamaaaaaaaaaad aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiii!!(75,000 people scream hysterically)

here is the referee mark conn giving the instructions.

conn: alright boys, you know the rules of the texas state athletic boxing commision. i want a good clean fight, remember to protect yourself at all times, any questions? ok, good luck.

the tension is building. but both fighters are ready. both men say their prayers. ali bows his head and holds up his hands, and foreman kneels down and clasps his hands together.

Round 1: ali circles foreman and throws some jabs that foreman takes. foreman is cutting off the ring well landing some body shots that ali takes. ali then gets out of the corner to land some stinging combo's that doesn't seem to bother george. both men use their feet in this one, as ali boxes around foreman and tries to stay away like he did with sonny liston, and foremanuses his speed of foot to ct the ring off and nuetralize ali's speed. it's an even round pretty much: dundee is telling muhammad to keep on the run and land shots where he sees an opening, and saddler is telling foreman to be patient and pick his shots.

Round 2: both men do the same thing they did in the last round, but now foreman gets a bit sloppy and ali capitalizes and lands some right hands. foreman is taking them and he presses on. ali lands some solid combinations, but he still keeps on the run. foreman still cuts the ring off and lands some body shots in an attempt to weaken ali. ali uses his jab, and so does foreman to an extent: foreman looks pretty good and so does ali. both men are up at the warning bell.

Round 3: ali still moves for the most part, but is going more flatfooted to increase the punching power. foreman cuts off the ring well with unusual quickness for a man that size! ali still gets some jabs in as he now is landing his fast fluury of hooks on foreman's face. foreman hits ali with a jab that rocks his head back. ali is stunned for a moment and hold on trying to tie foreman up, but this tiem ali does not have the luxury of being stronger than his opponent as foreman pushes ali off. but however, foreman can't manhandle ali as easy as his other opponents, but he still does it nontheless. ali still looks pretty good landing alot of punches on foreman: ali rests for a while and so does foreman, and saddler is seen giving foreman special pointers.

Round 4: both fighters look a little less anxious, especially foreman. he knows not to rush his shots against ali, or else the same thing that happened in zaire will happen, now! ali is getting hit with hard shots to the body and head as foreman continues to close the gap on ali's speed. ali still lands alot of punches and still looks pretty good. foreman and ali are both doing well, but ali has defeinetely landed more blows, even if they aren't as powerful as the ones dished out by big george: dundee is giving ali pointers on what to do in certain situations, and foreman sits calmly on his stool.

Round 5: Ali continues to move, and foreman is a bit tired from throwing so many punches. Ali makes him look a bit sloppy as he slips a lot of foreman's bombs. ali counterpunches well, using tricky angles to befuddle his oppoent. Ali looks real fast as his superb conditioning pays off. ali can now cruise in this round: Saddler is trying to calm foreman down in his corner.

Round 6: Foreman comes out and throws huge shots that ll miss as the crowd is amused by this. Ali keeps on his toes and Foreman tries to corner ali, but at this moment ali is just too fast for george. muhammad is cornered and ali holds foreman behind the head and pushes his head down to render foreman useless on the inside. This is smart tactical boxing by ali, and it is paying off. Ali still is on his toes, popping that jab and the occasional left hook. foreman is a bit discouraged and can't find his man: Dundee is giving Ali instructions and saddler is trying to help foreman get his second win.

Round 7: At this point foreman is dead tired and ali takes advantage, throwing hard lefts and rights, snapping foreman's head back. Foreman is stunned a little, and ali follows up with a fast ali shuffle and a left hook and overhand right like he did with Cleveland Williams back in '66. ali is extremely accurate in this round, as one would see that he doesn't miss a punch. His timing, his speed, his reflexes, and the blows are delivered not only with force, but with tremendous accuracy. Foreman is stunned as 20sec. remain in the round, and muhammad attempts to finish, but the bell rings: There is confusion in Foreman's corner, while ali's corner is real calm.

Round 8: Ali just jabs and moves, jabs and moves, never staying still in one place. He doesn't necessarily concentrates on punching power, but solely on cleanly winning the round, hitting and not being hit. and Ali does this quite well, as the now exhausted foreman doesn't know what to do. His hand and foot speed has greatly diminished, his technique is extremely sloppy, and he is so ticked off that he can't even think straight. Ali boxes a complete shutout round as foreman cannot hit him once, and ali throws 79 punches, landing 74 of them, remarkable even today!: Foreman looks like he is ready to collapse, and ali looks a little tired, but he is ready.

Round 9: Again, ali concentrates on boxing around foreman and foreman is tring desperately to land that one big shot. Somehow, somewhere, Foreman gets a second win and is landing and landing heavily on ali's chin. He does pretty well, in the first minute, but it quickly subsides, as ali uses his feet and stays away while hitting foreman with stunning blows that hurt george. ali follows up with some crisp combinations and Foreman is down! Foreman is down! Foreman is up at 3, and ali continues to pepper george with punches until the bell sounds: Foreman is still very tired, and so is ali.

Round 10: Ali is now flatfooted to get the extra UMPH in his punches. foreman has a mouse over his left eye. Ali really wants this win and he goes after it, landing hard smashes to foreman's chin. Ali is doing well in this round, as foreman is exhausted again. Ali goes for the knockout, but foreman chin won't allow it, at least not in this round: Ali has a very serious look on his face, and foreman and his corner look hopeless.

Round 11: Ali is patient and thinks about what kind of attack he will present. Foreman just goes out there and wing punches hoping that ali might run into one of them. Ali lands crisp, solid combinations and foreman goes down again! The crowd is on their feet, but foreman gets up, showing the heart, the tremendous heart and will not give up, yet. Ali lands a few more flurries to the severely fatigued foreman and he stumbles around the ring. the crowd is on the edge of their seat. Referee Mark Conn steps in and stops the fight! The fight is over, on a technical knockout! George Foreman is beaten in six games!

buffer: the winner by a knockout at 1:21 of the eleventh round, Muhammmmmaaaaaad Aaaaaaaliiiiiiiiiiii!!!(The crowd cannot control themselves as Ali hold his hands up in victory and moves on to The Western Conference Finals!)

Ali: This is it! There's no way I'll lose. Whoever stands in my way, Jack Johnson or Jack Dempsey, one of them will fall!

WOW!! Ali takes care of Foreman to move on. Can Joe Louis do the same thing tonight against Tyson? lets find out. Lets send our camers over to the east in Michigan. :boxing:

michael buffer: Ladies and gentlemen, presenting 15 rounds of boxing, lllllets get reaaady to ruumbllllllllle. introducing, from catskill, new york, he's wearing black trunks, he stands five feet eleven, he weighe two thirty-two, miiiiiiike tyyyyyysonnnnnnnn!(boos could be heard, and cheers for louis as he is being announced)and his opponent, from detroit, michigan, he's wearing black trunks with white trim, he stands six feet two, he weighs two hundred seven and three quarter pounds, jooooooeee loouissssss!

conn: alright, now i want a good clean fight. protect yoursef at all times. three knockdown rule is waived, so is the standing 8-count, go to a neutral corner upon scoring a KD, break when i tell you to break. a fighter will not be saved by the bell when knocked down, except for the final round. ok? shake hands.

Round 1: Tyson comes out bobbing and weaving and louis uses his defense to avoid tyson's shots. tyson lands some good shots which louis takes. louis answers with his own shots. tyson lunges in and louis brilliantly side-steps him and counters with a right hand. tyson is a little more cautious, picking his shots carefully. louis jabs and jabs. tyson fights a cautious fight until the bell rings.

Round 2: Tyson comes out and looks for one big shot to end it, but the head-movement is gone. louis jabs and lands an overhand right. louis then jabs and lunges in with a left hook and tyson is stunned! Louis follows up with huge, crushing blows, and tyson is really hurt. tyson gets oiut of the way and again is looking for one shot, but his heart is not in it. he seems preoccupied by something else. louis is all business in there as tyson does not know what to do. But have no fear, the sound of the bell is here. :D

Round 3: Tyson now comes out throwing a huge shot that lands on louis' head, and follows up with some other shots, flashing his power, but it's just not working as louis walks through those punches. Louis lands some mean shots and tyson is now wobblylegged and Louis moves in to finish. Louis has tyson up against the ropes, and five body shots and twelve blows to the jaw send tyson to the canvas. Tyson looks fine, but for some reason, he doesn't try to get up. the fight is over and so is Mike Tyson for this tournament!

buffer: The winner at 2:00 of the third round by a knockout, Jooooooooe Loouuuuiiiiissss!(the crowd is really happy and jubilant)
