Trying to step back from the darkness of some disturbing topics that surfaced during the brutal 2016 Pres election campaign, I, being a self
certified COD individual.. For the first time since Tyson took a bite out of Holyfield's ear.. I went to youtube to watch some classic boxing
matches... I saw plenty of classics, but I also discovered some more recent classic battles, so I wanted to start with this one from 2011... Two
fiesty blokes from the UK... Cleverly vs Bellew ... the first match...
It's been awhile.. and looks like Bellew is going to battle another guy I never heard of Haye.. this spring...
Let's just say that this Cleverly-Bellew battle has me trying to reconnect with the boxing game...
If you enjoy the boxing, share some classics .... there are plenty out there to discuss
AH yes!! BATTLES!!! not some prima donna collecting a big payday over a scrub... I wrote down some notes on some folks I haven't seen until
the past week.. Chicon-Limon was one... there are so many "no holds barred" real battles out there...
I was pleasantly surprised... personally not a fan of the new extreme fighting deal.. a bit too brutal, roman coliseumesque.. I will stick to the
boxing ring.. that can be brutal enough..
Era...1980 M.Lucas VERSUS S.Lucas.....bare knuckle fight in V.& E.Lucas back yard. Fight was called in round 2 due to the younger ...S.Lucas use of a
foreign object.......A 1x4 if memory serves me correct. Due to a pink button down oxford. S.Lucas wore said oxford & it enraged the elder M.Lucas.
Neither S.Lucas nor M.Lucas would be caught dead these days wearing a pink shirt.....names were changed to protect the unknown. Douglas VS Tyson when
Douglas knocked Tyson out. Watched it with my late mom, she was a happy woman that Tyson got ko'd.

Two brothers settling things the way brothers do......especially when one of them was and still is a complete idiot. Know, that I represent the
younger, way better looking, taller, overall great guy...the younger, S.lucas.a reply to: JacKatMtn
i would not consider this an epic fight but it always sticks with me cause i was a kid watching it with my dad.
ray boom boom mancini vs doo ku kim from korea.
mancini killed him....literally. kim died
always stuck with me
again not epic but early mike tyson when he was like 19-20 turning dudes lights out like it was nothing.
tyson was a monster man....loved watching him fight
