Athletes who are nowhere near the GOAT conversation.... but on their best day, they're better than the guys who are?

TKOs are KOs, clown. When people sit down and discuss the fight, no person who isn't a pedantic jackass polemicist is going to sit there and argue what kind of knockout it was.

Freeze frames. SMH... Pathetic.
Yeah, people use colloquial terms like "got knocked out" or "got stopped". But when we started this discussion, the ONLY thing that we were disagreeing on was that he was actually KO'd. We're on a fucking boxing forum, and you've spent pages arguing it was a KO loss, that he was not stood up. We both agree if the fight had been waved on, he would probably have been sparked out.

All it took was for you to admit you were inaccurate in your first post, and it would have been done with. But you're a stubborn fuck who has to be right, so you've spent pages making yourself look a complete idiot who doesn't even know the difference between TKO and KO. I should have left this once it was clear you were going to be a pig headed idiot, but I got sucked in and wasted my time. So this will be my last post on the topic.

It was a KO. You're the one who went out of your way to correct someone when they weren't even incorrect, so perhaps you can use the down time to look in the mirror and see yourself as the pig headed individual you are accusing me of being.

A TKO, my pig headed friend, IS a KO... and the manner in which the fight was stopped was actually FAR less discretionary than you lead your audience to believe, with your pathetic freeze frame argument and all. SMH.

I already know how you get when people don't bow to you, but I'm not one to actually care about it. At all.

Take care.

Cool. So what was the result of the fight?
I don't think that you ever understood my argument, or are you just trying to be funny? The point was that it did not matter the type of KO it was (yes, it was a KO) because arguing the detail does nothing to change what occurred:

Lewis got decked. Hard. And failed to recover. Arguing that it was a TKO does nothing to change the fact that he had not a chance in hell of continuing the fight... he couldn't even remain upright without pulling off some of the best dance moves I have ever seen in a boxing ring.

I never argued that it wasn't officially a TKO; I argued the notion of someone making a contention about a guy getting knocked all to hell... being declared a KO victim.

...Remember that Cedric the Entertainer joke about Zab Judah? That fight was also officially ruled a TKO, but who even gives a shyt? For all intents and purposes, Zab got ko'd that night.

Lewis isn't far enough from the GOAT discussion for him to qualify in my opinion. I think this is more of a "Buster Douglas" thing.

Oh right, it seemed like you were denying the result of the fight was a TKO for a while there.

Eden Hazard. When he's motivated he's one of the most destructive attackers in world football. Sadly he hasn't got the mental stamina to keep chipping in goals throughout November to March. So he'll never score 40 goals a season. But in a big game every manager in the world would rather have him than face him.

Tennis is Nadal. In Fed's shadow slightly, but injuries stopped him more than anything. When he was fit he was the best. Beating a prime Fed in 2008 on his favourite surface proved that.

Snooker is Alex Higgins and Jimmy White. Both were a pair of wreckheads with genius talent who spectacularly underachieved. White didn't handle the pressure situations well but was completely natural banging in century after century. Such is life.
