"lennox lewis" Discussed on SI Boxing with Chris Mannix
"Don't think the Ruiz for I think people ask me about that sort of killer mindset. He used to have. He was naive really as a fighter. You know, he just thought that he could just walk through everybody. And as you step up the levels and the quality of opposition, I think after the Klitschko fight, you just sort of said to him, if I have another four or 5 of those, my career might not be as long as I want it to be. I just can't keep walking forward and trading up in this division. I need to be a little bit smarter. How many times have we seen Chris, you know, fighters like Vladimir Klitschko, fighters like Lennox Lewis, adapt that style as they step up the opposition and realize they can't just be gung Ho. It's very exciting to watch, but you're going to have a short career that way. So I don't feel like he's definitely not gun shy. He's just smarter. And this fight is not about not being gun shy. Educated pressure wins his fight, not going out and being reckless and just letting the hands go and hoping to catch something. He's got to be smart at the same time. So he still hungry, you know? And I think what I've seen from him is a desire to win. He's the ultimate competitor. This fight, you know, he's made some very interesting comments about belts. You know, where trust me to belts used to be very important to answer Joshua. We paid a lot of money over the years and we probably took some wrong fights, doing mandatories and taking care of those obligations. He said the other day, zero interest. I mean, look, the ring magazine belts on the line. He's wanted to win that for a long time. And he's definitely keen to win that Bill. And when he's built back. But it's really this fight's about competition and be in the guide that beat me. That's the mindset that he has going into this fight. He does need to bring that old school mindset into this fight and he's got to be ruthless. And like I said, if he lands on us, body or head, he will have the opportunity to put a foot put his foot on the gas and close this show.
"lennox lewis" Discussed on THE FIGHT with Teddy Atlas
"It would get broken again, but again, even though he's smaller, who is it would be a little bit of a different challenge. Fury said on an interview with Joe Rogan that the toughest fight he's ever had with Steve Cunningham and I'll never forget watching that fight in the afternoon. 'cause I didn't know who ties? Yes. And he said that he couldn't do anything with Steve Cunningham, he was fast and slick. Everything he tried if people go back and watch Tyson Fury on Joe Rogan. With that being said, user gets through Joshua and they did fight fury in usic. What are you, how do you think that fight plays out? Ah, that's a tough one. I mean, again, I it's easier to pick fury, you know, he's these who want to choose, just go with them. He's undefeated. He's, he's not only beaten everybody in the ring, he's one of fight outside the ring with his life as I talked about earlier overcoming depression overcoming substance abuse over common suicidal thoughts. The guy knows how to win too. The guy knows how to win two he knows how. Not to in any way given to defeat. It would be hard. It's a big guy. He's very versatile, fury, very dimensional. It'd be hard to pick against him, but this is one fight. I would give it, I give it some extra thought. About maybe picking against them and maybe going with the big upset with us. But one of the X factors and variables here is obviously the war that's going on in new Ukraine. How long will it be out of activity? Where you'll be out of the ring for how long, while I think I saw something that said he's out of the country now and back in training camp for Joshua, I think, confirm it, but I don't know who he is. That he's got to get past Joshua again, which I believe he will. But I have to go and do what he's going through. It's kind of like what I talked about a few of these made so much money is accomplished everything for his legacy. He's done so many things he came back from the brinks of. Death in a way that he was thinking about death. Thinking about ending it. He's come back from that. He's done so much fury. You start to think what more is there? It can start to have a toll on you. That you've been through all of that, that journey. Well, it can have a toll on you to go through a war. But your country and then say bids judge and you're still the heavyweight champ, does he have enough left does he have enough desire in him? Has the war impacted him? Has it changed his outlook? We said, you know what? It's not worth it anymore. You know, I want to just be with my family. I just watched, I just watched the country get attacked. And get destroyed in many ways, buildings, people killed. You know, I don't want to have any more to do with fighting. That's possible. I remember one of the greatest movies I ever saw a man on fire with dental Washington, where he's talking in there when he wants to come back and go after these people. And he talks to the guy that was with the costar. Christopher Walken. And he says to my need your help. And Christoph says, Tom, because they were both guys that the jobs they did. They went out there and they fought people. And he says to him, but Gracie, I don't want to I'm done killing. I don't want to do any more killing. And he said, okay, just get me what I need. And that comes a time when, you know, where we're not saying literally, figuratively, you're done with that part of your life. You're done with killing. You're done with fighting. So I think those are things that bad thinking about when you start talking about the possibility of those fights. I would make the argument that just to play devil's advocate that usa could view it as let me clean this all up in the name of Ukraine and make the Ukrainian people hope and something to like get rally the troops, you know? But he could do that. He could do that with the Joshua fight though. Of course, but there's that one. Yeah, no, you're right. I mean, look, he can use that and I think he would use that. The judge will fight. But you're right. He could use that to unify all about. To say, this is to bring hope. This is the visit to symbolize the strength and the hope for the Ukrainian people moving forward. Yes. Yes. The small, the smaller man representing Ukraine against the big powerful, fury represented like theoretically like the Russians, the little man can come in there, size those that matter. I just think it would make for an excellent storyline. Who knows, like you said, when is going through some stuff that hopefully will never have to experience the horrors of being imagine his navy, your neighborhood, your country is being invaded by a superpower. It's terrible what's happened. But nevertheless, it'll be interesting to see what happens. They had last question on the heavyweight topic. Hypothetically, if you're a word to get the winner of usic and Joshua and to win, do you rank them in the top 5 heavyweights of all time. People have been flooding us with questions about where do you rank fury in terms of the greatest heavyweights of all time? I don't think you can put them in the top 5, but make them the greatest British heavyweight, no problem. Obviously. Better than Lennox Lewis. Yeah, I think so. I mean, Lennox Lewis was terrific, but he obviously wasn't undefeated. And he was a gold medalist from the Olympics Lennox Lewis terrific heavyweight, you know, terrific person outside the ring inside the ring. Everything. Originally I believe originally from Jamaica and raised in the UK, I believe. I believe. I spent time in Canada, Jamaica, Canada and UK. Canada, you're right. Listen, you want to make them look leading to top UK heavyweight champ of full-time. If you could do that. But then I think that fury would succeed that. Fury would succeed him and take that place. With what he's done, he's undefeated. You know, he's, he's fought everybody except, well, put it this way. Let him go Beatles. Really, let him beat us. And then I can start thinking about not the greatest of all time, but I could start thinking maybe I let him into the top 5, maybe. Because the greatest of all time, you talk about guys like Joe Lewis, Muhammad Ali, George Foreman, Jack Johnson. I mean, come on. You know, and then you get to Larry Holmes and there's just so many of Joe Frazier and Mike Tyson, my goodness. Mike Tyson at his prime, obviously. So when you're talking about that, there's longevity involved there. Some of these guys, I know you can only fight the guys of your era. I talked about that earlier. But he was around fury was around in a pretty good effort to be heavyweight. If you're going to be heavyweight, he was around in a pretty good hour. It's kind of like if you're going to be a farmer, you want to be around when the soil is fertile, right? When there's good soil. And the soil is further right now to be a top heavyweight. It's fertile. So you can grow your corn. You know, you can grow your produce. And he's done that. But there were there was where the ground was not as fertile. To grow your produce. Whether heavyweight division was a little tougher. And some of these guys I mentioned not only were they around doing that out of those, but they ventured into other errors. They were around that long. They ventured into other decades of other fighters. So to make them greatest of all time, no. I mean, I just don't see that being practical or even responsible right now. I think that that's we're getting over exuberant. We're getting caught up. We're getting intoxicated by the moment. But when you sit back and you look at the guys that you have to look at when you're going to put together that list, I think that you calm down a little bit and the emotion goes away a little bit. You see it for the way it needs to be seen. That's great. I think we've covered everything on that fight. Let's talk about the fights coming up this weekend. Rob, get a fresh three minutes on the clock here. First up, I want to talk about I'm dying for this fight..
"lennox lewis" Discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"Thing. And I think LeBron's going to be like this too. And we can leave on this. Because you say it with MMA, you see it with boxing, two sports that we love. And you even see it with wrestling. I think it's just really hard for these guys to walk away. Oh, yeah. You know? I was just going to make that comparison to an old school wrestler who Hogan, right? How many times have Hogan come back? They want to hear that music. They want that pop. And I think part of that, that's why I call them minigo maniac. Tom Brady's an egomaniac. Clip that off, he's self centered. He's a cheater, by the way. I mean, there's that. He was completely absolved of that. He completely absorbed. And not only that, but they destroyed all their big evidence after the fact. No, but I think football quarterbacks and basketball stars, boxing MMA. I think there's some sort of similarity with all four. Like how many boxers did we love that had to get the shit kicked out of them? The extra two times before they finally left, right? Some of that would probably still be fighting if they could even get licensed. And I MMA said the same thing. These guys, it's fucking sad. These guys, some of the stars from the 2000s. Tito Ortiz is like still fighting. That's why, by the way, I say the greatest of all time is my fellow Canadian George Saint Pierre, who went out as welterweight champion, took a four year break, comes back, sees that Michael Bisping is the middleweight champion, goes up to middleweight, wins that belt at MSG, and then says, peace I'm out of here. Leaves on top twice. That's a Jim Brown. Jim Brown was another one. He left on top. How many guys do that? In the history, like the tally Klitschko, he was up there. He wasn't quite as famous as George Lennox Lewis did it, Lennox Lewis. I mean, you could technically say Floyd did it because he hit a point where he's like, I'm just not going to get punched. I'll keep taking this fight, but it'll never be anybody that actually has a chance to hurt me. I'll give him credit. Floyd did it a 100% if you're not giving him that credit, you're being a hater. But more often than not, no one does it. And Brady, by the way, I mean, he lost in a playoff game, no one would have batted an eye. I wonder how much that report of him retiring played into it, like did he want to, I don't know, you know what I mean? Like, did he feel the pressure that he had to do something? The whole thing was bizarre. The point is, give me Tom, give me anyone. Give me Aaron. I'd love to see Aaron Rodgers in the Super Bowl. I just believe in Josh so bad. And I've seen enough times where I mean, just look at what happened with mahomes and the Patriots, right? Right. Where you get stabbed in the heart, you crumble, and I know we all thought last year's chiefs game, like two years ago. Now, two seasons ago, game was going to be the game that gets them over the hump. This year, I think, and I hope they remember that losses to the Jaguars, those bad losses, steelers, they come back to haunt you because we would have been at home for that cheap game. You got to win those games. Make it count and then a January February do your business than men. I.

"Don was just trying to keep Mike Tyson's name of value because I never understood this, man. I'm going to tell you, Chris, I never understood this. If one person loses in boxing is not the end of the world. Right. Why do people write people off so quickly? Mike lost, but I think that DOM was trying to protect the undefeated record, but at the end of the day, it's like the fans know what they saw. It doesn't matter, a fight's a fight. Even if there is a situation, whether is controversy at the end of the day they still went on and what did buster Douglass do? He knocked him the F out. A fight of fight, like people won't forget what they saw. You can't undo that. Sure. For me, like Don king, I think, was just really trying to put things together to protect Mike. Which I find odd because he actually ended up screwing him. Another story for another time. As we start to wind down here, was there ever a rematch between the two, where did the career paths of Tyson go and Douglas go after this? Okay, so buster Douglas goes and fights Evander Holyfield. And Evander Holyfield destroys him in three rounds. Wow. One of the greatest counter uppercuts I've ever seen in my entire life. Evander Holyfield actually studied for this. He actually put in the work because he watched Mike Tyson fine, he watched pasta Douglas fight. Mike Tyson goes on a path of a lot of stuff. Continues to fall apart basically, right? Yeah, you know, he lost to a lot of guys. He shouldn't have lost to, you know, he fought a lot of fights. He tried. I think at that point in time, it was money. I don't think it was passion. I think at one point in time, Mike Tyson had a lot of passion for what he did. I think a lot of guys went after him as a mark to be like, I could get him right now. Right. But I think that where Mike's at right now, he seems very peaceful. He's got a podcast. You know, I just think that at the end of the day he's in a great place and you know, we got to look at him as I'm going to say in the top 5 heavyweights of all time. And maybe not even technically I'd say from an icon point of view and from a perception point of view, I think he's top two. I think there's Ali entice and there's your two biggest heavyweight fighters of all time. Whether they're the greatest, technically in the ring or not from a perception and a larger than life persona, those are your two. I was gonna ask you that question who wins, Ali or Tyson. In a fight in a boxing match. Once again, I mean, if you look and this is a great last way to end it off. And I'll ask you your thoughts for me if you look at the two in their prime Ali's strength was being able to absorb punches. Obviously everyone knows the rope a dope where he would just get the shit kicked out of him until the guy got tired. He blew himself up as we say in wrestling, which I think led to the Parkinson's that he had later on in his life. But if you had, you know, Ali of 73 versus Tyson in 88, I think Ali would have been able to absorb that punishment until Tyson blew himself up and then I'll eat would have gotten the advantage of one. That's just my thought about it. How about you? For me, Mike Tyson knocks him out. Early on early on. Yeah, fast. Quick. Because, you know, he's got to understand exactly the points that you made is that Ali's going to box. Right. And Mike Tyson, you know, he's a good boxer. But I don't think he wants to deal with that shit. Right, exactly. You know, so he's going to try to get it out of there as quick as possible. Once again, it's great talking to you, Johnny, and we'll love to have you back to discuss more of this, but definitely the biggest upset in history for sure because Tyson was never the same after this. I don't think the sport of boxing was either, right? You know, I'll leave it with this is that it was the blueprint to many people to come in and show Mike that they will not be bullied if you bully the bully, you know, you look at the holy field, even like, you know, I mentioned other fighters too, like Lennox Lewis, Danny Williams, like there was a lot of guys that just did not put up with it. It was an exposure and credit to foster Douglas. Like I said, you know, numerous times, like, you know, he went through a lot of shit. I think his thing was that he wanted to not be bullied and show Mike Tyson something that Mike's never seen. He had no fear. And that paid off as he won the championship from the undefeated Mike Tyson. So thank you, Johnny. Great talking to you, man. That was awesome. Hey, and I thank you, brother..
Analyzing Kyle Rittenhouse's Defense Team With Jenna Ellis
"Bring up we were addressing in the last hour the ridiculous claims by the assistant DA there Krause Jim crows Who would somehow imply that Kyle rittenhouse was under some legal obligation to get into a fistfight with rosenbaum First in a Jedi again I'm not a lawyer that's obvious I wasn't investigated though I'm quite familiar with the law It's absurd It's like suggesting again Ray Lewis or Lennox Lewis or Mike Tyson approaches you in the street and throws up their hands and you're under an obligation to duke it out with him first before you pull a fire That is nowhere in the self defense code The essential component of many of them I don't know every single state law but the essence of it is you a reasonable person would be in fear of an SPI serious physical injury or death Is it not that's like the staple of self defense law in just about every state Absolutely And Wisconsin under waxing and I'm not an attorney in Wisconsin but that appears to be the same standard here And clearly the prosecutors were arguing bad points of law And this is where I think it's interesting that the defense didn't object And now closing arguments opening statements those aren't evidence And so you have to be careful as the defense training You don't want to object too much as if you think they're making a good point that you don't want the jury to hear But if I'm the defense attorney and I've done this before in trials is actually objecting to say wait a second That's a myth characterization of the law And just so we're clear judge would you reiterate And kind of put yourself on the side of the judge Like judge would you be helpful Because this guy is so bad he doesn't even understand that he's articulating the law terribly right now Could you please help the jury out thanks so much and make yourself look like you and the judge you know what you're talking about And that guy is a

"And furi- these more athletic and he's on the street might not have the best footwork but he's athletic. So if you can uses jab is gonna put them in a position where he can get a right distance to land ryan. We all waiting for the big right hand. Drop in land. Problem is he wasn't at the right distance and it wasn't because it was not using his job he wasn't shooting took a body one is she lied to the head. I mean that's what puts you in a position. That's the key weapon. So i think of uses that if maliki to at least that he's going to be in a way to be able to land that right hand barack he had a decent check. At least a us a checkbook. I wouldn't say that that's going to be a useful tool. Because i think you're just to check left. Hook is going to put them in danger. But i think the jab and knowing women shoot that right hand is going to be key and and i think we'll leak. I think that he he can make some sort of change. I don't know about reinventing. Chris but i think that if you listen to me at the league is a great boxing. Mind better dancing. Why this barack. Like i'll give you the first one. Where he he definitely boxed in that fight. Stubborn was at the end. Almost quite literally so i don't know what he had left in that fight. But other than that like most of his fights he winds up down scorecards on because he's not boxing all and he's relying on that hair-trigger right here. Which is a potent weapon. Don't get me wrong. But i don't. I've never looked at him. The job to me maybe think differently jackson has always been a range finder. Like he's kind of putting it out there. It's never been that kind of get outta goffin. Piston rod jab or even the klitschko or the lennox lewis. He just never used it like that. It was always kind of pawing to me to set up that big right hand behind it which was effective. But i don't know that it's going to be a great weapon firming. Despite not verified watch this diversified again. The i i did the first one. Yeah jab was a real job. That was a real jab. He was sometimes empower jab here and there but what i'm saying is that he even admits it. He got away from the basics. He even admitted that he was barely training properly. Like yeah he would spar he wouldn't run. He wouldn't do a lot of things he started to like. Jerry cooney always says read his own press. When you're knocking everybody out. You have to be super discipline to say you know what i need to go. Hit these four miles that chris. You're right. He was relying on power for the last hour. Hominy fights but maybe that's the league. Do mega monique has created. The onset does rely on power in wants a win. Rans wants to win routes and he runs against the of rocks. Maybe just knee an old. The wilder Refurbished to the point. Where he he's not relying on the power and just let that come mention to me..

"He hit the floor and he got back up like the undertake on eight. He just stood up like nothing. Got day plugging gypsy motherfuckers. Wow son like at this point like i do. I'm excited to see all these guys fight Like they josh. Well i would have been more excited with joshua if he If he would have been reese and obviously if he'd be Six okay 'cause you can't fucking tonight at you know what i mean if he beats all these fucking guys regardless of what you think of his fighting style or right now. I mean if he's being them he's being them regardless. Yeah it will make for a good story. Beyond to fight the winner between tyson fury and And wilder right. It'll make like the perfect storm even now the fact that he lost To reese and then he lost to usage and we'll see fight. I got kind of excited. 'cause he's he's a good boxer. He's a good boxer so even to see him. Fight the winner between tyson furio. And while i would prefer to watch i think watching fury and usage more will be a better place to be more. Exciting fight agreed than wilder than and usage. Yeah agreed and in hindsight. I think it's so it's something different than that. We find ourselves in for anybody. Who's like oh. Boxing fan Like during the clinical years on the lennox lewis. Here's once do thought. Well you knew who was gonna fight you. News a win layton the the amount of gifted fighters in that in that era for heavyweight. Were not i mean there are. Nobody's coming you know what i mean now. Is it their fault that they fought. Nobody's not necessarily. Because that's what you have. That's what you have gone now. You have champions losing creating other champions announced a little bit more mixed diversity to were now. You really don't know you know you have. I mean of course you have your inclination of who it is but it gives you that more of a i guess a level plainfield. Which is excited. Is that a scene. Lennox lewis win sixteen five in a row. Might at one before jelly fucking thirty fights in a row. Cliquot defended the bill like what twelve times in a row without. Excuse me so. I think that that in itself.

"I just think mentally Joshua was kind of going in and out. And we've seen that before. He kinda gets lost in the corner any. I don't really think he he. He absorbs what he should be absorbed. But if it's gonna help immensely yes bring someone else in yes. I'm i'm gonna go out and say this because like you said josh was already in. His thirties is a second time. He loses badly on the big stage. Maybe it's time to bring in someone else. Just like wilder wilder did but you know you can go buy a different way. Bringing someone finely tuned that despite show you how to find the end the jab fight taller go to the body bringing a strategy now just follow around a fighter like lucic so yeah this time around. I said bringing someone. Yeah i just didn't like the strategy at all. I mean one of the things. I saw with dirt zora against ucla. Was that in the first few rounds. The pressure of jessore got to uci to. Sora just couldn't maintain that pressure because in his late thirties and doesn't have the conditioning for that. I never outside of like some spurts in like the fourth fifth. And sixth rounds. I didn't see joshua applying pressure. I didn't see him. Try to marshall those physical tools in the ring. So i think you gotta go in a different direction. Wladimir klitschko and lennox lewis could be horribly boring but they were enormously successful because they were trained by emanuel steward. Who groomed them to use those physical gifts. Joshua is six foot six. He should be using his physical tools as a weapon against smaller fighters. So if if we're at this point of careers rob mccracken anthony joshua and. They're not doing that. I think it's time you'll is no longer with us but maybe somebody else i mean you mentioned trainer changes ben. Davidson is a great trainer. But you can't argue the success that sugarhill has had with tyson fury sugarhill brought more offense oriented approach to tyson fury and that helped fury pick up the knockout against deontay wilder. I'm not saying. Make a change for the sake of mega change but if you identify somebody out there that can bring something else out of you. That hasn't been there yet. I think you gotta do it. I think we're at that point. Sergio where it's we're just going back to rob and going back to. I'm not even just talking about the trainer. Like you gonna change everything man like you gotta get out of the uk for your training camp. You gotta make yourself a little bit more uncomfortable. Go to the. Us go to big bear colorado springs. Just do something a little bit different to try to get some of that fire back that you had early in your career rocky going to russia right. I mean basically. But you've seen that though two guys i mean i don't know if you change your training camp location but i see it all the time in boxing guys you know bounce around to different places and have success because of it whatever whatever works man. Whatever we're the fighter. Anthony joshua doesn't seem like the mentally mentally unfit guide. I'd get that starts blaming everybody so you got to like the fortitude. He has there. So i think you'll just want to regroup with the exact same people maybe get out of the uk but you know it was a game plan and a strategy. That went wrong with them. And here's the thing about your sewer. You brought up your sore. You know what you did that he had success at joshua did not do. He used his physical tools..

"It seems like we play just yesterday. Once the work was sunday is a blank day. For italy and england relevant is in that how the brits say brilliant but they also say tissue. I've never really understood that. First of you got the wimbledon men's final and for the first time ever. There's never been an italian man or an italian woman in a final at wimbledon and now they've got matteo bertini. I hope i pronounced that correctly. But he figures to just be sort of cannon fodder for jovovich and then they've got at wembley a few miles away. They've got the finals of the euro. And that's england and italy which which people in england are saying will draw the largest television audience ever in the country which means more people will see that then saw andy murray win or nick faldo win or so. Lennox lewis win. That's a really big deal. I don't. I don't have a horse in the race. I'm just hoping there's more than one goal and it's it's not penalty kicks. I'm hoping it ends up being real stuff no matter what happens is temporarily defining because they're going to be other great events you know featuring even those two against each other and as you mentioned we've seen this in golf and tennis where the nation is just a twitter because of the participation just participating. I mean they're not as sort of demanding about it as the united states. Where if you don't win. You're a bomb on sports radio the next morning on the twitter as you would like to say so temporarily defining it'll be great you know for the moment and then a month they'll be something else to define england italy and maybe against each other now. That's it's blanked. Shohei.

A theory people can chock it up as he just has his number use loss with the best fighter in the world and number one pound for pound by the way in the world. People could chalk it up that now we would move to summer lower care if he was able to get this. If the the Clause whatever the judge the judge gave him as rematch. Then you'd have to someone else.

Go exactly as you thought it was going to go. When he was a one sided fight it was it was a classic display of the sweet science of Hit. And don't get hit. Take the belt with ease and get back on the gravy train. You know Andy couldn't couldn't keep up. couldn't move feet. You could probably times faults enough to keep up with me and I think I'll wind eleven out of the twelve around if I was to be generous. And that made history. Saudi Arabia became too from everybody jumping in the world. When you were preparing for that fight I mean so much into it. We don't have to go all the way back through it but did you realize after the first fight like this guy is going to be really hard to hurt and knock out so. I've got to change everything. It was more to the point the knockout for. Because if I wanted to go for it I would have gone for inside time from the first round. Already busted by but that was gate. My discipline my tactic. By just the fact that you know tool fighters getting short the mix inside. It's like the rule one on one. I went against the my first fight. That's a technical point of view from a technical point of view it was give him the sweet science. The Lennox Lewis Buses David tour. You know the The the stylistic. I wouldn't say that told me how lessons right. Because you know that went bought. The ranging books are buses the showroom books. There's a way in what you about victory in. It's not going in there. Looking for knockout is the. What if the knockout come? Then you take it. Don't go in and looking for it and What did come out by the victory and I think that leads onto these conversation that we have in now is so is so satisfying to speak to you to jump into the world right now rather than saying man. I tried to knock him out. I wanted to detain. I just go go bid tired. He picked up four round in the later part of any described win. I'm champ and Nestle Nestle I'm happy about. You can see behind when it means if you had lost that fight. Would you ever tired? No wait I think that shows weakness in my own paw even know I sometimes create some quarantine and isolate.

"To the mid eighties email me Holyfield east coast flight went through it every Lennox Lewis any Riddick Bowe once you go to the Kronk gym you're a different fighter this year we went along Jim that's when Holyfield beat up on the ball in the second fight Lennox Lewis went to the crunch and he started knocking out people a lot of grand Tyson is on a knocking out people left and right I noticed that this guy was going to be a different guy second of all when you see the last press conference they showed each other so much of them across the range that extra ten pounds fifteen pounds he was physically double the strength of Wilder and the last thing is if you watch the fight I wanted for crimes are ready while the kept on favoring his left leg I know you said in the the punch to the year I saw that too but he already said after the fight there's something wrong he had something wrong with his legs I think she has a written messages that happened probably two weeks before the fight that he couldn't pull out of because of higher ups and he was unstable on those legs at all during the whole flight understood yeah I I the tribute to the shot that he took the year after you doing handicapping from his talents doing your best staff position projections you may be right if that's the case you gotta believe that while he's going to reveal that within next couple days within a week certainly Phoenix and decide you need you can take the remax because you want to explain his better performances he added last night if he's got a legit injury eaten you'd believe that he would say that when you he said it right after the match they interviewed him they said he had a problem with his leg come coming into the fight what's the what you do said torn meniscus problem with your leg is a little different a torn meniscus and at night well we probably know what it is yet you take you to our aid but didn't have it look dad died he decided they'd these guys are under constant supervision as far as health goes I don't believe that for a millisecond I thought you were referring to he was going to fight through it because there was no way was gonna back out are quite and missed a pay day I A. if they knew we had it at a time at least you do install brace on air you put a bandaid Jared some dell hold it in place I don't think that they there's no way he doesn't know about it he was just going to fight bullying I am the one good enough to apply to a we certainly found out over the six plus rounds we'll find out I don't I don't think they'll buy it if they just leave it as well I had an issue with my like that's not going to be enough you got your tail kicked pal if you want to explain it you need to do better than that Galvan Cleveland up on CBS sports writer Darryl what we do is only did you Robert good Americans possible pursuit broly right if you have a guy that comes out might try to jury did you need to be able to cherry Bekaert what were your once were only you know you have the left jab and a right cross this is what you get to go to bed pretty much Deontay Wilder that's exactly right your email somebody needs to teach a lot of balls because guess what we just gave you a horrible out of people it doesn't look like it responds well to give you all some guys respond well to get it all some guys take your parts please they were they were white so we learned a lot about the open water yesterday now is so I don't know where his career goes from here he's got the rematch clause if he chooses a decade which after nearly you talk I think everybody's got to be a lay anybody take that kind of being going to be at least a little gun shy knowing there's a big pay day in it knowing that day yet all these guys have egos and can come up with an explanation or excuse or put it on his mind set he got dominated in the fight and you're right he is a limited fighter I delight he was so powerful and so good there is going to be able to overcome that land the haymaker and win the fight via knockout I would not have picked them to win by a decision because he dominated he made the big punches last time and he couldn't even get a win so I knew you were going to do is same aggressive day again guess what fury was more aggressive and more effective is it possible to tell you what these are files that come out with a shot fighter hello Lloyd Jones so we're going to see what it is about because with the weapons that he took we don't see are you going to respond because he should be shot at the the devastating loss yeah I don't disagree that Iowa I'm going to be fair to him I'm going to say we shall see but I will concur with you dead it is a possibility some guys take that one loss is that not only takes it out of them physically but mentally as well and they're just never the same I think this loss could be of that magnitude he was dominated he was beaten AAP I guess he couldn't in his own mind telling myself that I couldn't continue don my corner to Intel wasn't my decision every is got the right person in his ear coaching I'm going forward maybe they can work through some of the emotional and psychological aspects that he lost time last night that were taken from him last night but here's the bottom line he's gonna do all that and then he's got to actually get better as the call is a put it well you got a blueprint as as to how to beat him now there are too many guys like Tyson fury out there who can punch the way did he punches and blocks away the boxes and come at you with two hundred and seventy pounds so yeah although Tyson fury laid it out as to how to beat Deontay Wilder I don't know who else can just step into Tyson fury shoes into a okay all I gotta do is is a day and I can beat a guy like Wilder but at least there is a joining moon pad out there for how to get the better of Tyson wild Jenna January.
