    From past fighter to hard t find fights, feel free to drop those rare fighters/fights here

    Harry Simon should have been world champ and a star. But man (doc is from 2014)


    I had no clue he was fighting as little as 2 years ago
    BoxRec: Harry Simon

    This fight back in the 90s let me know he was the real deal

    RIP Frankie Randall!

    he gained notoriety at a late age (32 years old) decorated amateur and a helluva fighter that had many demons outside the ring that affected his career.

    Donald Curry. He was a known quantity but largely unknown by today's fans. He was rated #1 pound for pound fighter in the world at a time where Hagler ruled the middleweight division with an iron fist. He was the first WW to hold WBC, WBA, IBF titles and wanted to jump two classes to fight Hagler. An extremely shy persona, he was the anti-Floyd. He lost sight of the target and mentally let down when he couldnt get a fight with one of the big 3, main reasons why he just didnt become a bigger name. Almost a perfect fighter but too confident in his own ability.

    Emmanuel Augustus. Easily one of the most high profiled fighters with the worst record. 38-34-6. He lost a lot but was always entertaining. Just was a horrible fighter to look good against. There's no way fighters should struggle with a guy with that many losses.

    I thought Anthony Thompson couldve been a good fighter but his religious beliefs seriously hindered his career.

    anyone mentioned Edwin Valero yet? He was supposed to be the man to whoop Pacquiao after the Oscar win.

    There is a video of him knocking Oscar off his feet with 16 ounce sparring gloves and another of his battering Eric Morales and breaking his nose. He had some power and chin behind him :ehh:



    Look at him going easy on Santa-Cruz



    Dude just couldnt stay out of fukkery, however :francis:
