    No mention of Hasim Rahman's Frankenstein defense against Lennox?!? where they told to stick his arms straight out? His arms were literally out when he got ko'd

    Razor Ruddock V Mike Tyson 1 & 2.

    Ruddock used to be a good boxer before morphing into a headhunting slugger after smashing Michael Dokes.

    Tyson had stopped throwing combos & had also become a one dimensional slugger by '91 & Ruddock showed he was tough enough to hang with that version of Tyson & had he elected to box more, rather than trading single shots with Tyson, he could have won.

    Nigel Benn V Michael Watson.

    Benn boxed a ridiculous fight & tried to tear Watson's head off; meanwhile, Watson just cupped his gloves around his head & just popped out jabs & crosses & Benn's stamina left the building so much so, that he was knocked out by a simple light jab.

    Yes, Benn came out like George Foreman in Zaire, trying to finish the fight early with a highlights reel knockout. Watson did what Ali did; weathered the storm, waited for his moment and then upped the pressure. Both Foreman and Benn were completely blown out by the time the stoppages came

    May I add Teofimo Lopez V George Kambosas?

    Lopez fought like a right nincompoop.

    Too angry; too emotional; no composure and basically fought down to his opponent's level and lost the fight.

    Not sure if this works but GGG saying he fought in a more “Mexican” style than Canelo to then come out and back up behind the jab didn’t work well at all. Bad enough to give ground constantly to the guy coming up in weight, worse when you declare prior to the fight that you will be walking him down and backing him up.

    One other fight that had me scratching my head was when Robert Guerrero volume punches his way to victory over Andre Berto and then tries to outbox Floyd. Horrible decision. Also- Oscar abandoning his jab half way through the fight with Floyd made no sense- it was his most effective weapon to that point. Floyd had a way of making opponents do things out of character and pay the price for it.

    I think Golovkin did not plan to box Canelo but was surprised at Alvarez "new found" power, strength and conditioning. Golovkin had to adjust and went on the backfoot. The perception of the fight led to him losing.

    Floyd is good at what he does and I hate him for it.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.
