    Re: Ward pulls out of Pavlik fight.

    I felt from the beginning, along with many others, the fight was non-competitive. Pavlik is a name prizefighter with I suppose some left over fan appeal. I can only guess the promoters intentions,...

    Re: Bruce Curry vs Ray Mancini

    Of course Ray did move up to Jr Welter later and was not the same fighter at all. A good deal of that was age and rust. Against the lesser Curry in '83 he would seem to be the favorite.

    Re: Jose Urtain Vs Mike Shutte

    Great matchmaking, Sage. Two sluggers with little to tell them apart. Make it a non-USA event and it would be a major draw. I followed Urtain closer than Schutte - he could have given Frazier a bad...

    Re: Ward pulls out of Pavlik fight.

    This is great news for Kelly. A fight with Bute is much more promotable, both fighters needing to burnish their tarnished reps.

    Re: Holman Williams

    Thanks, pal. There may be a quote in there we missed.

    I had the privilege to stand in for Holman at his induction into the Florida HOF.

    Re: Oscar Bonavena vs Tim Witherspoon

    A rugged fight with Tim holding an edge in nearly every department. Both have great chins. Oscar has a slight power edge, more than offset by Witherspoon's ring generalship and much better defense....

    Re: Joe Calzaghe - Fighter of the Decade ???

    As I suggested above, regional organizations like Ring 8 and state Hall of Fames should induct locals - that's what they're about. Naming a world's fighter of the decade crossed that line.

    Re: Frank Warren's Column: The Sun (UK)

    Nice to see a rebuttal, albeit from a promoter, to the doom & gloom'ers.
  12. Re: Book - Floyd Patterson - Fighting Life of Boxing's Invisible Champion

    Yes, I have and it was riveting. I would include Mailer and Baldwin in that group as well.

    Re: Joe Calzaghe - Fighter of the Decade ???

    A history of boxing can be drawn from a number of its divisions - the heavies, middleweights, etc. The super-middleweights isn't one of them. It's talent level has always been thin and euro-centric....
  14. Re: Book - Floyd Patterson - Fighting Life of Boxing's Invisible Champion

    The Patterson - Liston - Clay era was one of the richest periods of boxing reaching deep into America's psyche. In the hands of a skillful author it could be riveting.

    Re: Joe Calzaghe - Fighter of the Decade ???

    Does Ring 8 answer to anyone except themselves? If not I suppose they can do whatever they want in rating a 'fighter of the decade'.

    Did they get it right?

    Hardly.

    Ring 8 is a New York...

    Re: Bob Foster vs Patterson at heavywt

    If Floyd could have stayed at 175 he would have joined Foster as an all-time great. Fighting Bob at heavy he maintains the string of losses Foster suffered at the higher weight. Patterson by stoppage.

    Losing Larry to age is a loss for boxing.

    Wish it was only a training hiatus in preparation for Mayweather.
