Default The legends best and worst fights

This is the thread to post all the legendary boxers best and worst fights.

I'll start with muhammad ali

Best-Cleveland Williams- His movement and left jab are amazing and his technique is perfect in this fight. He was untouchable in this fight. The best ever.

Worst-Trevor Berbick- He was a shade of his former self. He fought like he had no life left in him. He was flat footed and his punches were slow. You can see that he was very ill during this fight.

Yeah thats another bad one. Foreman destroyed him but he should've did better against Cummings; I suppose the blindness was an issue.

Okay, I'll bite. When did the blindness set in? I've heard that he was legallly blind in one of his eyes; but am unsure of when his vision went bad.

I'm not certain but from what I gather it was becoming increasingly worse around the second fight with Ali. In the Thrilla in Manilla in 75, I hear he was practically blind in his left eye.

I'm not sure about this...I thought his vision was not well in one eye. I don't know about being blind. Anyone read his autobiography? He might mention it in the book.

joe frazier was "legally" blind in one eye for a significant part of his career.
