  1. Re: Offering Mint & Rare Fights/Other Sports, For Yours

    Since, with the end of active posting tomorrow, we won't be able to contact one another here at CBZ (I don't think), I'd like to say to anyone reading this post after Dec. 31, 2012 that my offer to...

    : Re: Honest & Reliable DVD Traders

    Thanks again for the kind comments, Zach1g, and a Happy New Year to you and to my other friends here at CBZ. I hope we all can continue to communicate with one another beyond the closing date...

    Re: UFC 155 Play by Play Results

    I've been sure for two+ years that Cain was the best heavyweight MMA man I'd ever seen, and that didn't change when he was caught early by JDS in their first fight and lost, fast-- it happens to the...
  5. Re: Carl"The Truth"Williams vs Tony"TNT"Tucker

    Tucker. A close call, though. Similar fighters in a lot of ways.

    Tucker had the better chin, though in fairness fought the weaker competition (except for Tyson and Douglas). Hard to see either...

    Re: Oscar Bonavena vs Tim Witherspoon

    Hello mrbig1,

    I'm surprised you apparently give Patterson such short shrift. He was way past his prime for the Bonavena fight, by like a dozen years, and beat a Bonavena who was also past his. ...

    Re: Top Ten Chicago Fights Of All Time

    I'd throw in Hagler-Hamsho #1 from 1981, if a fight from Rosemont, IL counts. This was a brutal but controlled and stylish beatdown by Hagler of a guy who was so dangerous that he provided Marvin's...

    Re: Aaron Pryor vs Saoul Mamby

    Yet, oddly, as I recall, making a Mamby-Pryor match WAS talked about more than a little bit back when both were champs at 140. I imagine what prevented it was that Pryor had so many more lucrative...

    Who would ever want to see this? I wasn't even that enthused about it the first time.

    Re: Aaron Pryor vs Saoul Mamby

    Pryor by vicious KO inside 6. Mamby, a credit to the sport, a good guy, and a fine journeyman boxer, was simply not at the elite level. Pryor was elite and then some.

    Mamby beat an old DeJesus. ...

    Re: Hector Camacho vs Howard Davis Jr.

    Camacho would win every time.

    Davis was a fine fighter who unfortunately didn't have the beard needed here, and Camacho was even faster than Howard was so there goes Davis's one chance. Camacho...

    Re: Mugabi vs. Lamotta @ 154

    Here again, take what what you wrote and then remember that this is at Mugabi's BEST weight--NOT the weight he fought Hagler at. Whereas Jake never fought here at 154. I can't see LaMotta making...

    Re: Mugabi vs. Lamotta @ 154

    Since the fight is at 154, I give Mugabi a fine chance. Mugabi was a helluva fighter and KO artist supreme at 154, really brutal.

    LaMotta never fought at 154, but close to it twice only, and was...

    Re: Roberto Duran vs Bobby Chacon

    This would be a joke. 1978 Duran destroys 1978 Chacon, picks him apart and brutalizes him. Chacon has no prayer. On top of it all, Chacon wasn't a real lightweight then (though often fought at...

    Re: Marciano-Qawi 190 lbs

    Qawi was a terrific 190-pounder, but quite vulnerable here at this weight, and already past his 175 prime. That's where he was sharpest and most lethal.

    Rocky would beat him badly and yes, Qawi...

    Re: Marciano vs Patterson 1959

    Hard to bet against Marciano in this one. Hard for me, anyway, layoff or no. Still, I see your rationale, Don.
  17. Re: Matthew Saad Muhammad vs Ezzard Charles

    I love Saad, but I think Ezzard is too slick and too talented for him. Ezzard by late KO, or decision if the famous Saad chin holds up as usual.

    Re: Vinnie Pazienza vs Hilmer Kenty

    Kenty is the more polished athlete, but I'm not sure he can hold off this unpolished, less talented fighter who frankly fights with more desire than did Kenty.

    A pick 'em to me. Could see a TKO...
  19. Re: Marvin Johnson vs Sugar Ray Robinson

    I think calling Sugar just a welter ignores his substantial punching power at middle.

    But I agree with the rest; Marvin was a good puncher and relentless. He didn't have all of Maxim's savvy but...

    Re: Matthew Hilton vs Donald Curry

    Big fan of Donald here, but I don't see him lasting in this one. Not strong enough. For all his immense skills at 147, one thing Donald lacked when he moved up just to 154 was strength. He'd need it...

    Walshb, I agree completely with both of your most recent posts. And esp. with your last sentence-- the Hagler who came out ultra-aggressively vs. Hearns KOs Nunn; but the Hagler who came to fight...

    Re: Michael Nunn vs Joe Calzaghe

    I think Nunn is a historically underrated fighter. He's my pick of all the moderns to have the easiest time in beating Monzon, a man I'm on record as saying was overrated. ESPECIALLY considering...

    You make good points, walshb. Maybe Tyson KOs Holmes at any time, but, you see, I don't believe that Tyson, one of the great punchers in history, was capable of beating the majority of the very...

    Re: Joe Louis vs. Larry Holmes

    Well . . . yes . . . in 1988, when Holmes was 39 y.o. But Holmes in 1978-80 probably could have handled Tyson's shots, in the opinion of JaKob (it appears), and in my opinion. And, sure, maybe not....
