Take Rocky Marciano, and look at possibly the most sparkling record in all of boxing. 49 wins, without once coming up short, without once get handed anything less than victory. Take the confidence he earned and look at how modest and blue collar the Rock was in becoming the only heavyweight champ to retire undefeated. It’s a wonder that he never slung slander or defamed an opponent with anything besides his fists.
But then take Reggie Strickland. Or Reggie Buse. Or even Reggie Raglin. It doesn’t matter which of the three, because they’re one in the same. Ordered by promoters to use such pseudonyms to dodge athletic commissions, Strickland, who, by the time of this reading, has probably lost another fight, currently stands tall at 64-263-16 and has gums that seem to work as hard as Marciano’s fists once did.
