His left hook to the body was a rib wrecker
Shame his career/life went the way it did (That clown of a cornerman he had should take a lot of the blame) he Should have been one of the GREATS
Anybody watch "The Fight Of Their Lives" the other month? Very sad but excellent piece on Nigel Benn and Gerald
Just realised I was talking about the first one in my above post.
Yeah the documentary was very good and you're right that cornerman was an absolute ****.
