I think IMO it hurt his legacy tremendously. Prior to that, he kept postponing and cancelling the Rhaman fight...Where it look like he actually ducked Rahman...For the record I think Vitaly would have KO'd Rahamn...But, I remember question if he was ducking Rahman. The injuries might have well been legit. But, it looked like a duck.
Then with all the time off, while he was at the top...He was thee man of the division to go on a what? 3 year lay off? That bothered me too.
And, I think it hurt him. Because, he didn't get the wins(names) on his resume during that time to be in the HOF IMO. Now he still can get it... He still fighting. Who knows with what type of resume he will end up. But, yea that bothered me too.
No I am not unfortunately. Basically I couldn't really make up my mind wheter or not to go so now I'll spend the evening in my comfy chair which isnt that bad. I might regret later on in life that I didnt go though.
I'm pretty hyped for the fight as well. I cannot remember when there last was a fight that got that much hype. I'm not sure any of the Lewis fights did? Maybe we'll have to go all the way back to Tyson.
Gerber is becoming a house fighter in Denmark and people are taking notice. He drew some nice reviews from his last performance so regardless of how inept your original prediction appeared, it looks like you know how to spot a future HOF'er.
I read about your trip to the far east bro. I wanna join in next time.
