That's Bennie Briscoe, one of the best middleweights of the era, a really fine fighter who used to come forward and put his power punches together really well. He gave Monzon a fine fight. You should see his fight with Rodrigo Valdez lad. Valdez actually stopped him with a fine ko at about 1:30 of this vid, check it brotherNice video Teeto, hadn't seen much of Monzon before. Love the he just slighty leans back then leads with the right hand.
Who was the bold geezer who nearly had him out at the 4 minute mark
The left hook after probably didn't help either:yep
check and hook go together pretty nicely it seems
well I wouldn;t consider it a counter, but I'd welcome it as a celebration of Marvin Hagler, one of the finest fighters of all timeHoooooooold on. A Monzon thread? I need to have a sleep and decide whether or not to counter this with a Hagler thread.
Unsure about what happened with the politics regarding the Valdez fight. I'm also unsure about the politics involving Monaco, I'm sure one of the lads will know however, maybe Swarmer.:yep
Just checking out his record on boxrec, any reason why, after beating Jose Napolese he refused to fight Rodrigo Valdez but fought his 2 years later:think And whats with all the fights in Monaco, was it a popular fighting destination back then, like Vegas now??
Sorry pal. Being a Hagler obsessive it's natural for me to treat many things like war but hey, I'll take my WAR cap off and relax for a bit.well I wouldn;t consider it a counter, but I'd welcome it as a celebration of Marvin Hagler, one of the finest fighters of all time
