Didn't Greg Haugen say the same thing...before he was TKO'd by Chavez? Oh yeah, it was Tijuana cab drivers. Afterwards, he said those must have been some pretty tough cab drivers lol. Haugen was a character. I remember him fighting Chavez in Mexico and coming to the ring with Born in the USA as his entrance music. That takes some balls and a sense of humor. But yeah, a lot of those early wins weren't exactly a whose who of boxing.
