    My father told early on, back in the 50's, the best boxers were the welterweights and middleweights. The Heavies got all the press coverage, but the middle ranks was where it was at. You had greats like Sugar Ray Robinsons, Gene Fullmer, Carmen Basillo, who battle on another several times for the title belt. image.jpeg

    washpo doesn't like my ad blocker. I don't really need to read their BS either.

    Back to Pressits point i agree. After watching Sugar Ray fights everything the hevies did was mostly back up.
    Apparently a canadian MMA turned Boxer died last night after a fight.
