Am sure the 3-5m dollars he would have earned would have come in quite nice for him at the time and now. But it is what it is. Am not fine with boxers ducking a fight for a big payday, you are ok with it, I can agree to disagree.

If terms of padding their records with dishwashers comments, you claimed you don’t care about that, sorry to bust that bubble but a lot of more people do. It seems every time some point that out about Wilder, some people cannot handle that, the reality is people would talk about it whether you like it or not. This is the Internet age, not when Bowe was 32-0.

Then that’s messed up, if terms of “Lewis” letting go it’s to do with the “He can’t stand next to me” thing.

Mentioning SRR really does emphasise just how much boxing has changed. At his peak he was fighting 20 times in a year - no 4 months promotion time required etc.

Then you are absolutely right, Lewis had every right not to want him standing next to him, you cannot be going around saying that, when it was you that drop your belt in the bin not wanting to fight him.

I liked that he tossed the belt.

I wish more boxers would do this and just let the ring results speak for themselves. Bowe certainly did.
He ducked his ass Lewis stopped him in the olympics and prior to dumping the belt Lewis had just finished off Razor Rudduck brutally in two rounds.Just like the agreement Bowe had to not fight Tyson because they both came from the same neighborhood but did not know each other .So basically he was champ and excluded himself from fighting the two biggest names in his division.
