“Johnson had been in control of most of the contest through the first 20 rounds, but as things drew towards the halfway point of their scheduled 45 rounder the champion began to tire and Willard scored a knockout in the 26th round”

 

Jack Johnson was a blatant shithouse.

Johnson always claimed he threw that fight so he could go back to the US and get a reduced sentence on his conviction. Seems a bit much to go 26 rounds before taking a fall. 

 

Johnson story is nuts

Favourite thing I heard was a cop pulled him over for speeding on some country round and gave him a fine of $50, Johnson gave him a hundred. The cop stated that he couldn't accept the hundred because he didn't have change. Johnson reply

 

Don't worry I'll be back in a few hours doing the same speed

John102 not sitting on the fence about Cheeseman there. He might not be the most exciting fighter but if you stuck him in with whatever is left of Jack Johnson then I reckon Ted takes him out inside four rounds.

Good to see Paulie Malignaggi hasn’t made a right cunt out of himself.

He's a very good analyst but he's a bit of a dickhead. This will put to bed his hopes of fighting McGregor in a boxing match not that it will stop his incessant grumblings.  I like Paulie more than McGregor but it's a bit like choosing which turd you like best on a Bristol Stool Chart.

Who in the fuck sanctions a bare knuckle fight between a professional boxer and a mixed martial artist 

A well paid sanctioning body.

Disgraceful. 

 

It’s pretty shocking that this bare knuckle thing is allowed to happen at all. That fight last night has given it even more exposure. It won’t be long until someone dies.

Agreed. Got no desire to watch it at all.

One worrying aspect of BKFC is the 'competitors' are washed up Boxing/MMA fighters so they already have lots of miles on the clock which will further decrease their durability and increase the risk of serious head trauma.

 

Only blessing is that they can't punch as hard unless they want to shatter their hands.
