    That's exactly what he said.

    Actually, with the heavyweight division being in the shambles that it is, plus the alphabet soup of boxing orgs, each with its own belt, I'd say there is a fairly good chance a 6'8 guy who properly utilizes the jab a lot could win a belt from somewhere or other.

    As much as I enjoy boxing it is hard to disagree with this statement. I watched a Klitchko(?) brother lose a fight to a fat, out of shape guy, who was gassing and almost KO'd at one point.

    He won whatever title and IIRC lost it immediately.

    Hey, if he can pull it off, it's a win/win. Tim Sylvia might win by some odd chance, and make many of the boxing purist nuthuggers cry, or he'll get the **** beat out of him, which is awesome.

    Currently scheduled to fight Randleman at Global Fighting Championships in June, although Randleman's also fighting on the next Sengoku show so who knows.

    Sounds like most the heayweight fights I've watched recently.

    The current state of Heavyweight Boxing is really bad thats why i would'nt bet against Evander Holyfield reclaiming a belt either.

    I honestly think there's several Heavyweight MMA Fighters who could out box the current crop of Boxing heavyweights.(Valuev is terrible)



    I back David Haye to be the next undesputed Heavyweight Champion. (and he's really a cruiserweight)
