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.

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."
