    This tournament was created about a year and a half ago, but I continuously would get distracted. Planning to push through since we are currently in the semifinals!

    For those wanting to know what it is, the original threads explaining it can be located here Martial Talk Boxing Tournament and Martial Talk Boxing Tournament With Poll/Bracket.

    The current bracket is located here: Martialtalk Boxing Tournament - Challonge

    The new match is between Sugar Ray Robinson and. Jack Dempsey. Vote here: Have your say: Sugar Ray Robinson Vs. Jack Dempsey

    Robinson would eat him alive. I don't think he'd even burp.

    I'm honestly shocked Dempsey made it this far, even if he's one of my favorites.

    But I'm still mad about Roy Jones Jr. going out in the first round

    Hmm, looks like people are not as interested in this now. That's a shame

    I just voted for Dempsey. But it's easy to lose interest in things that are inconsistent, at least for me.

    No idea why it’s not letting me vote, but put me down for Robinson.

    And no Joe Lewis? Any boxing “conversation” that’s worthwhile can’t exclude Joe Lewis...



    Or was Joe Lewis just too easy of a pick? :)

    But of course he won't have a chance against Iron Mike. Well, unless he bites Tysons ear off...

    Even then, can you really call that a win? You've only got one ear left at that point...
