Blood, guts, tenacity, multiple moments of real danger for both proud prizefighters – this bout had a little bit of everything, and it was certainly worth the admission ticket, even despite a stacked undercard that proved to be lackluster with what they produced. The bad blood between RING/WBC Heavyweight World Champion 🇬🇧Tyson “Gypsy King” Fury (31-0-1, 22KO), and former WBC titleholder/nuclear power puncher 🇺🇸Deontay “Bronze Bomber” Wilder (42-2-1, 41KO) reached a mountain top in the pre-fight build-up, that was of authentic legitimate merit, and because of that, what we thought was a mountain top, was actually a volcano that erupted once the first bell rang.

Apparently, there is unfinished business to tend to here. Now last week’s earthquake-causing performance by the now-other titlist has caused an ongoing discussion as to who really is the best Heavyweight….but what is not to be debated…is that 🇬🇧Tyson “Gypsy King” Fury (30-0-1, 21KO) is thee Heavyweight World Champion, and is in possession of the RING & WBC World Titles. Given that his mega-blockbuster fight with a fellow Brit fell through due Continue reading “Running it Back For a Third Time – Wilder Has Something Extra To Prove, While Fury Wants To Close the Door For Good On this Rivalry”

Are we looking at the single greatest sporting event of all time here❓ perhaps so….after all, it showcased two legendary Heavyweights, and a rivaling 📻backstory, during an era where expression within the black community became a paramount staple, and both men went about conveying their thoughts and themselves in contrasting ways.
The great Muhammad Ali (31-0-0, 26KO👊) was on a mission after making his return back to the sport, after his boxing license was taken away due to his reasoning as to why he refused to partake in the Vietnam War. Subsequently, as a result of his decision, he was stripped of his ♛RING, WBA and WBC Titles, and was no longer deemed as the Undisputed Heavyweight Champion – 📍A moniker that he had held onto for three years, during a nine title defense stint, one that he breezed through as a virtually untouched commodity as he had no equal between the four ring posts.
As Ali’s departure from boxing became a reality, the titles became vacant, made available for the next King to stand up. “Smokin” Joe Frazier (26-0-0, 23KO👊), after winning a Gold-Medal at the 1964 ◯◯◯◯◯🇯🇵Tokyo Olympics – quickly blazed a trail through the competition at the pro ranks, and put himself into position for a shot at the Undisputed Heavyweight Title. During the post-Ali era, it was Jimmy Ellis who would first win that vacant WBA belt after he defeated 🇦🇷Oscar Bonavena, and it was Ellis that Frazier would have to get through in order to fully take over the helm, to hold the mantle.

The legendary “Smokin'” Joe Frazier (29-0-0, 25KO) stood as the reigning Heavyweight World Champion for three years, flying high after delivering Muhammad Ali his 1st defeat and putting to rest who the man was in the division.
On this date, January 22nd, 1973, in Kingston, Jamaica, Joe entered his Title fight a 3½-to-1 favorite over young Olympic Gold-Medalist George Foreman (37-0-0, 34KO), who was making his first attempt at the big time, and damn did he deliver that day, frightening the boxing world and destroying one of it’s truly great Champions.
