    - - Yoka could go on to KO Fury in his next fight and monkeys gonna say he the best ever.

    Has anyone's favorite ever lost?

    Of course. Like Leffy, it happens.

      I think it was... Forest was considered a prodigy, and it was ironic because another talented, somewhat under achieving puncher, el matadore (Mayorga), smoked Vernon twice! Styles make fights after all lol.

      I was going to add El matadore. Mayorga, to my list but I figured he would never really get to the top...even though I loved the guy. One of my favorite fighters...

        Listen, he did drop Fury hard so I do not feel like I was that damn wrong. It's real simple, from 2012 to this moment and until I see reason to believe he can not, I still believe Deontay Wilder has the ability to KO any man. Including Tyson Fury. He can do it, will he ever? Probably not, but he got close enough for me to still feel like he can get there.


        Bit like Archie vs Rocky. Or Charles it probably better. Charles damn near beat Rocky. I don't reckon a Charles fan should be ashamed he believed Charles had the good to win, he did have them goods he just never figured out a way to put it together perfectly for the W.


        Deontay lost a knucklebiter that featured a count most would not have given the fallen a chance on. Not bitching, Tyson's rise the single greatest moment in my era, but, he was this ****in' close you know? I don't feel too terrible about it.
        Yeahb with the average age of guys in the division and all, the jury is still out on the bamma belter! Imagine if he KO'ed that Robot from London? Errr....Anthony Something?

          It usually does not take long for a step up in class to expose the weaknesses of a prospect or champion. The opposing trainers go up in class, too, and can spot more vulnerabilities.

          The lesson: In boxing, expect to tout a lot of Yokas. It happens all the time. What we did not have until now is a name for this category--Yoka--as in, "That's right, KO'd. He's the real Yoka all right."

          Wispy may go viral and make Yoka famous yet. Maybe Wispy ate dinner with Yoka because he is Yoka.

            For me, Golota was a sure bet to become an alphabet titleholder at the very least. I was shocked by his mental crumbling. He had everything to become a major player, and flushed that same "everything" into the toilet.
            Bastard dropped the ball every time he came to the big dance.

              Not many remember that Golota won a medal at the Seoul 1988 Olympics. After watching the video again, one notices the huge difference in bulk, and wonders: did the juice he surely was on as a professional cause some extra problem to his mind?

              Also funny to see Golota using a sort of Ali style against his Kenyan opponent... he was floating like a butterfly

                - - If Golota ever failed a drug test , I don't remember it.

                He's a big boned 6-4, so what weight you gonna have him at?

                As I recall later in his career he was involved in the Polish mob that he likely had links to from his youth.

                  Neither do I, but not everybody gets caught.

                  Of course he was just 20 years old when he medaled in Seoul. Still, the diference in muscle is striking.

                    No such thing as a clean Eastern European - they made them take PEDs. Phuck, those animals (Soviet Empire) actually tried to breed monkey-men with gene splicing. If he was in the Polish system he had them forced on him at one time or another.

                      Michael Grant. Not sure if I was really as high on him as a boxer as much as I was pining for the next great American heavyweight. Welp, colored lights can hypnotize, sparkle someone else's eyes....

                      Lennox took his soul, and the rest was downhill.
