One of my all time favourite fights, Carmen Basilio was superhuman that night, he lost the decision and showed unbelievable toughness and stamina, watched every round of this fight over and over again, every time I score the fight I get a different result, Ive had Robinson winning by 5 rounds, then I watch it agaim and score it for Basilio,,,,,,, how the **** do you score a fight like this one. Now, the result is almost meaningless as both became even more legendary after it, in the end its one win apeice and it is totally fair too. the one thing I cant forget is how Basilio fought on and on with his eye in such a terrible state, you'd think that Robinson would have won every round after the eye got bad, in fact Basilio gets better, not worse, oh man he had RESOLVE. ------------------------------------- Anyone ever ask me to name my 5 favourite fighters of all time, Carmen Basilio is always a shoe in, we all know about SRR and most fans know of Carmen, to me he is a SPECIAL great.
