GAME STARTING TO RESPOND RIGHT WAY
Great fights involve a certain amount of risk for both participants. And for a long time, fights of this ilk were not being made. But that all changed when promoter Bob Arum decided to put the "Golden Boy" Oscar De La Hoya in unchartered waters by agreeing to fight Ike Quartey on November 21.
OSCAR LIKE FED CHIEF
De La Hoya has become the Alan Greenspan of boxing in a sense as everybody is following the cue of the 1992 Olympic Gold Medalist by putting themselves in tough.
LIKE WALL ST.
The other champs have now decide that the time is right to put it on the line. On November 19, Angel Manfredy and Floyd Mayweather duel for a lot more than the WBC and WBU trinkets when they clash on HBO. Titles aside, the winner will be the "true" world champion at 130 lbs.
BIG BOYS REALIZE SPIT HAPPENS
Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis have agreed to meet in late February or early March in Las Vegas for something that was once considered the "Sport's Worlds Most Cherished Prize" in the world heavyweight championship.
LEWIS GETS CHANCE
Lennox Lewis truly may have had the skills to become a great heavyweight champion. But time and a steady diet of non threatening foes have watered down Lewis the fighting machine.
MASTURBATION IS NOT THE REAL THING
Although that and physical intimacy both might achieve the same end result, the experience is different. Where am I going? I'm trying to say is that Lennox jerked off for so long that he never developed into the fighter he could of been.
It got too easy for Lennox Fighting reluctant guys like Andrew Golota and Oliver McCall. Couple in the fact that LL was paid millions of dollars to step aside on more than one occasion, and you have a fighter who is complacent.
EVERYBODY IS SCARED
Fear is what motivates most men when you get past the monetary factor. Evander knows what I'm talking about. But going essentially unchallenged for almost a decade can leave a fighter void of fear, a much needed element in the pug's makeup.
UNLESS HE'S A SISSY...
Lennox's knees have had little reason (if any) to quiver much as a
THAT SHOULD CHANGE...
When Lennox looks down and into Evander Holyfield's eyes.
BIGGER, STRONGER, YOUNGER?
Yes Lewis does hold these advantages.
BUT DAVEY MOORE WAS...
Younger, stronger, and bigger than Roberto Duran when they clashed for the WBA 154 lb. belt in 1983. Duran schooled him and stopped him in eight rounds.
IT'LL TAKE EVANDER...
About four rounds less to stop Lewis.
