    Ernie Terrell was affectionately known as the Octopus and Sonny Liston Made a crack about him hugging him more than his wife did. I think John Ruiz studied some of Terrell's old fights. Don't get me wrong because Ernie was a champ at the same time Ali was and he fought name opponents.

    Hell of a fighter.

    I saw Muhhamad Qawi beat Leon Spinks 1986 on KOTV this week. I did not know he actually fought him at cruiser weight.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    The greatest Chin-NOT.


    Sylvester Wilder
    won 4 (KO 1) + lost 47 (KO 30) + drawn 0 = 51
    rounds boxed 209 KO% 1.96


    Dude holds the record..I believe for getting knocked out the most times.

    Nice.

    Robin Deakin won his pro debut in 2006 and that’s it. He fought a few weeks ago and lost his 51st straight fight.

    And who can forget Reggie Strickland. W/o checking about 380 fights and close to 300 loses

    Peter Buckley is right up there also

    For me the show stopper has always been Eric Crumble and I've mentioned him before. He fought 31 times and lost all 31 by ko and never went past 2 rounds. His last name simply boots it out of the park.

    Yancey 'Yank' Durham

    In 1966,

    Would not put Joe Frazier in the Ring with Zora Folley, as 'Yank' was fearful of
    Joe's vulnerability to the right-hand.

    Zora had a good straight right-hand, and Joe had yet to perfect the ability to
    slide off the incoming straight right-hand.

    I stand corrected: 97 times?
    And the other dude lost 51 straight!? Man these dudes got my respect in the strangest of ways.

    Granted a lot of Eric's fights were in casinos and saloons.
    But isn't there a licensing prerequisite or medical clearance need to be granted before a professional fighter steps into a ring?
    Aren't past records taken into consideration?

    If it were up to me.....

    Crumble: Sir, I'd like to renew my professional boxing license for an upcoming fight.
    Me: Sure thing. What is your professional record thus far?
    Crumble: Uhh... 0-30, sir.
    (pause)
    Me: Okaaaay.... How many of those losses have been by knockout?
    Crumble: All 30 of them, sir.
    (longer pause)
    Me: Uhh... son... have you considered a change in career?

    I think in some of these hick states you can get your boxing license in a box of Cheerios. The fact that a guy could get to 0-31 with 31 KO losses mostly in the first round is mind blowing.
