    I'm not sure if there's a thread already dedicated to this topic, if so please merge @Poindexter. Wanted a place to post all the old classics as I came across them.

    Marvin Hagler & Tommy Hearns went to war on this day in 1985, enjoy...

    People forgot how great hill was after that.

    USA Tuesday night fights was my poison for so long as a kid. Jimmy thunder, rahman, Pernell Whitaker, Michael nunn, etc. Just so fun to see that last great generation come up.

    Winky was never the most fun to watch but, like Pernell, he got screwed on some decisions.

    He had Sugar Shane's ass, though.

    He was the greatest athlete I've ever seen while he was in his prime. Everyone else was moving in slow motion. He was like a super-hero fighting bums.

    And then he speaks and the opposite is true. Listening to Roy Jones or Deion Sanders make serious attempts at commentary is a vicious and offensive assault on the English language. I despise Roy Jones but was actually a fan of Deion Sanders minus the time he spent with the Cowboys. When he opens his mouth and tries to sound intelligent, I physically cringe.

    I can't debate you there.

    His commentary is just so bad and he tries so hard to sound smart.

    That's the problem with both. If they were both themselves, they'd be way better. But they try overtly to sound intelligent or at least to speak the way a normal human being that speaks English should and they just murder the language. It's cringe inducing.

    This is just for fun and because I haven't thought of Vernon Forrest for years.....RIP. He had Sugar Shane's number and was a solid fighter for a great many years.
