The Historic Forum's 'what fights did you watch today' thread

That's a ridiculous statement. And it's not much of a fact. You can do this with any fight. "Had Foreman paced himself vs Ali better he wouldn't have been knocked out." You don't afford Duran the same kind of excuses for some reason, maybe because Tommy Hearns is your favorite fighter.
I don't think that is a ridiculous statement. Barkley was leaning over in pain and cut over both eyes. This was going to happen, just that Tommy got careless.
