    Default Fighters who dined out on a loss

    Who you got. Fighters who's career was defined by a loss.

    Mason's career was definitely defined by the Lewis loss. Not sure about dining out on it thought, he almost went blind didn't he?

    Think more Henry Cooper. No one cares that he won the Lonsdale belt a hundred times. He knocked down Clay God dammit and gave a great account of himself in a plucky loss.

    I had just typed out an essay and then deleted it, Henry cooper is exactly the kind of guy who I couldn’t think of. Plenty of greats lost lots, but they are almost never defined or served by those fights. “Dined out on” implies that the guy was better off for losing the fight, in the scheme of things.

    Nice twist on it topic. Maybe a guy like Razor Ruddock post Tyson I. But that Dokes KO still stands out.

    Felix Sturm - won about 50 "world" title fights yet always remembered as the guy who got shafted by Oscar (and then ironically accused of constantly shafting every visitor to Germany).

    Buster Douglas dined out on his loss to Holyfield to the extent that he nearly died of overeating.

    Michael Spinks.

    I remember Larry Holmes was asked about his thoughts on the outcome of the Tyson - Spinks result ,(and you have to take into account a lot of the ring magazine staff said Spinks on points )

    Larry said the following - " The Spinks Jinx there Aint Nothing to it , and the whole world knows he wont do it , he will run around the ring for a few rounds , but Mike Tyson will run him down ! "
    Remember reality is an illusion caused by a lack of alcohol .

    Lacy definitely isn't dining out on that loss.

    @Memphis you've fucked it mate. Is it dined out on or defined by? People have enough problems understanding thread topics without you adding to it.

    Mitch Green?

    Went the distance with Tyson.

    Except on the street, where he didn't go the distance with Tyson.

    I blame Master. I assumed people would know exactly what I meant but he took it immediately down the wrong path.

    It's probably too late now but to clarify

    Fighters who's careers were defined by a loss, but they got their monies worth out of that loss.

    What about Maidana? Lost twice to Floyd back to back but laughed all the way to the bank on both occasions.

    Trust Master. Its comforting that things haven't changed around here...

    How's about Wayne McCulloch? Specifically being the first to take Naz 12 rounds.

    He had some decent wins so to say he was defined by that is a bit unfair but he is most remembered nowadays for having the best chin outside of Oliver McCall, a reputation he first earned from that loss.
