- I'll schindler your ass back to Israel!


The most significant latin american sparring of all time:


Saved from the Butcher of Bilbao
I remember so well, when I was watching Galindez-Rossman ll, that chicken geek lookin' fucker jumping in the ring and going after Galindez. I hollered out loud at the tv " you don't fuckin' do that asshole, attack a real, genuine badass like Victor Galindez!! What are you some kind of fool?" Like somebody losing their mind and jumping in the leopard or tiger enclosure at the zoo or something.

Tapia at his best was an ATG.

Never seen him box and move like this except against Konadu.. Most of the time Tapia would get wild and he would end up exchanging with inferior fighters but he was impressive in this fight. Super disciplined

That’s how young Tapia used to fight.

He was much less flashier, more conventional back then.

The early super flyweight years was his best boxing.

For some reason I am influenced by black and white fight footage when it comes to heavyweights.

Up until today, I figured Louis to be on a comparative level size-wise to guys like Ellis, Patterson, Quarry.

Boy I was wrong, I'm watching Frazier vs Quarry right now, and Louis' frame is so much bigger than both Joe and Jerry .

Carlos the Magnificent
The greatest middleweight of all time.

The best fighter of the 70's.

The... best actor of the 70's?!

Sonar Sonar starring Monzon is a borderline great film by a legit ATG director Leonardo Favio.

A classic low key road+buddy movie in the vein of Midnight Cowboy and Scarecrow - only more upbeat and better shot.

Alas, no subtitles - but the movie is pretty simple and the plot isn't hard to follow - and it's worth it - if you're a Monzofreak and into this sort of cinema.


Brace yourself though - it's a completely different Monzon - a sensitive emotional Monzon - Monzon the Actor.

To ease you into it, here's a picture of a young amateur Carlos from 1960:

Thank you for all this Lester....don't know where you find them....
Don't know if I can handle an "emotional, sensitive Monzon"...I'll bet his opponents wouldn't believe it!:think

Lester, I wish I spoke Spanish...but I like foreign made films even if I don't speak the language...so far, it's surprising well made.
