The longest fight of all time was a draw between Andy Bowen and Jack Burke, 110 rounds, 7 hours, 19 minutes. In New Orleans, April 6th, 1893.

I believe.

Dickie Eklund did NOT knock down Sugar Ray Leonard, despite the fact that he and his sycophantic followers have been making this claim for over 30 years now.

When Duane Bobick got KOed by Ken Norton in 58 seconds, Curtis Cokes said "Bobick trained for 6 months & didn't even get a chance to use his stool!"

I always enjoy the Chavez Rosario one where Chavez though Rosario was trying toput a hex on him and so wore his trademark red bandana into the ring so as to protect him from the hex

When Ron Stander was getting ready to step n the ring vs Joe Frazier, a reporter asked her for her thoughts on Stander's chances. She said "It's like putting a Volkswagen in the Indy 500."

Remember when Sonny Liston knocked down Wepner and the ref asked him "How many fingers do I have up?" And Wepner said "How many guesses do I get?"

Jake LaMotta says every Christmas Eve, his dad would go outside & shoot his gun, then come back inside & tell us that Santa Claus just committed suicide.

"So he didn't have to buy us any presents."
