    Spot on. He turned into Calzaghe that night. Fast, slick and of course able to adapt mid fight when he knew he could take Lang's power having worn him out.

    Drago was post prime Balboa getting a beating, losing rounds, but able pull off a win with endurance.

    Balboa was better in the first Creed fight than the second. In tbe second one he was way down.

    He had the title run but hard to tell due to the match making in the Mayweather post 140 style. Looked good, but what did it mean?

    That is indeed a valid observation too.

    I think now is as good a time as any to be honest. Everyone is scratching around for shit to do. Im in.

    We could also do this for the forum and virtually decide who is truly the forum’s hardest.

    You’d have to share vital statistics on height, weight, strengths, weaknesses and general fitness.

    With your right hand, I do not think anyone can take you.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    Something like Top Rank (and I see the WBSS is doing something similar) wouldn't work here, as we just don't have enough members to vote and get a good outcome. I have created a D&D type combat system, where you can choose either Power, Speed, Chin, Stamina and Defense as your ability. You would also get 3 bonuses to use through the 12 round fight. When you start getting into other details like height, weight, weaknesses and fitness, combat can be drawn out and become tedious, and I don't really want to be bogged down with a tonne of dice rolls. I haven't fully tested it yet, but we could have the first knockout tournament and tweak anything for the 2nd season. As I doubt we can embed a dice roller and do live rolls, I will have to complete the rolls and post the results. Let me know what you guys thinks. If we get say 8-12 players we'll do it. You can post an image for you fighters avatar in here or PM me. Give me about a week, as I am just finishing up my greenhouse.
