If the aim of the sport is to knock the other guy out (which it is) then Tyson has to be right up there.

Tyson was a fighter, not a boxer. Most of the lads he battered were fall guys or past it. When he had to fight somebody decent he had no plan B. Wouldn't have lasted pissing time against any of the greats.

He had tremendous power, the peek-a-boo style was his and it was awesome. For a shorter man he could get inside more easily than anyone before or since. That POWER, the hand speed, the fundamentals were all there.  Yes he fought bums but he wasn't dodging fights, nobody wanted him.  Golovkin has the same problem, nobody is keen to get knocked out. 

Buster Douglas stretched him out and he had no ability to go the distance, that is true, but he was a mess by then and not preparing properly.  He was not the type of fighter to ever go the distance though, there never would be a Plan B, does that limit him?  Maybe but not for me, it's not a sport where winning on points should be celebrated.  Knock the other person out as brutally and quickly as you can and he was the best at that for sure.

I had dinner with him last night.  He is banned but didn't want to go into details as he's handed it over to his legal team.  Reading between the lines of what he was saying, this whole site may be in direct convention of numerous of laws pertaining to media and communications as well as criminal matters.  These include:

  • copyright

  • slander

  • inciting hatred

  • using a carriage service to harass

  • stalking

  • fraud

  • discrimination based on gender, race, religious beliefs or sexual orientation

  • bullying

  • and to top it all off it may not be fully WC3 compliant.

I asked him why he was bothering to go through with it and he said he has the free time and while Digweed was pretty sound Hannu and Simon had "gone Gaddafi" and needed to be stopped.

Worn by scumbags.

Indeed. You only see the backs of them when they're running away with your wallet.

But they are EASILY the most comfortable shoes you'll ever own.  Easily.

I learnt to  play chess when I was 4.  Does that sound like something a "dope "would be able to do?

For your first thread in years (and despite it being another monosyllabic RIP thread constructed while pickled) I applaud your work-rate in here.  Take note anyone with a 1 page failure on their hands, get in and do the work.

I'm missing something Simon.  I thought it was a picture of Millsy.

I'm guessing Millsy looks like Simon Pegg and Hannu is doing a funny?

Facebook told me this morning that Millsy likes paintballing. Should be more careful about letting friends tag you at embarrassing situations.

The pic is from the paintballing-episode of Spaced, knowing which is IMO much less embarrassing as playing paintball.

"Good guy, by what I've managed to pick up from TV, newspapers and the internet".  Doesn't have the same ring to it.  Never mind, just delete this abortion and post a proper tribute so we can alert the family and they can continue to mourn in here with us.

You don't mess with a classic Jamie.  Pegasus 83s are a classic trab.

Just a big slab of rubber passing as cushioning.  Cringing at the thought of a full day in those.  It's like not having power steering or digital radio.
