  • Not so sure about this tournament – I know it is supposed to be fun but Butterbean? Haye versus Foreman! Talk about a slaughter.

  • I have no doubt in my mind that a group of casual fans have the kindness of bring for us this joke for a bit of entertainment. I wish that a group of guys like Teddy Atlas, Max Kellerman, Jim Lampley, Larry Merchant, Al Bernstein and others on that level could have been the ones assembling this, what a difference should have been

  • Imagine muhammad ali running around the ring trying to throw a jab as rocky marciano is chasing him.cassius clay career would have been over after fighting marciano

      • I think Ali’s elusive style with head movement would have baffled Marciano’s ring smarts. Marciano technically was a stalker in the ring and many times he would leave himself exposed in doing so. Marciano was a small heavyweight back then as compared to today’s standards. The variable in all this to consider; Could Marciano have banged with the modern heavyweights today who are larger and have more density in their punches?

  • If Marciano had stayed around until 1960 and fought Sonny Liston and Ingo that would have been huge to his legacy. Great as he was Rocky did not fight great fighters over 200 lbs in their prime.
