    Wasn't on my radar. I used to read all the boxing mags so I was up to snuff on who was who. But the good ol' boxing mags slowly died out one by one and I'm not so up do date. Plus there are so many good white fighters now it's hard to follow them till they hit it big.

    But this guy is good. I like how he chops away patiently at the body and uses the uppercut.

    I was the same with boxing mags. I still have a 3 foot stack of them going back to 1997.

    Don't throw them out, I sold mine years ago when I moved out of my mother's house and got about 50 bucks for mine. Now I see that Ebay has copies of the magazines that I had for 10 bucks a pop(asking price who knows if they are selling).

    I too stopped reading the magazines around 98' or 99', the internet was getting too good and the magazines were too out of date.

    I remember around that time the K brothers were just starting to get minor notice out the magazines. Even when Vitali blew out Herbie Hide, the magazines made it seem like it was glass jawed Herbie making Vitali look like George Foreman, rather than Vitali being the vicious puncher that he was was.
