It is not fun growing old bullet force 다운로드. I am a product of my past.  A victim of my era so to speak. I constantly bump heads with the young fans of today. They glorify Hopkins, Manny, Mayweather and the Klitschko brothers 다운로드. Even from a decade or so before it’s all about Holyfield, Whitaker and a guy named Mike Tyson. They are all great fighters in their own right. Then you can go back a little farther cars 다운로드. Now we’re talking Holmes, Duran, Hagler, Leonard, Hearns, Pryor, Michael Spinks and Benitez. How about Julio Cesar Chavez, Edwin Rosario and the great Salvador Sanchez pc용 카카오톡? Some great names and outstanding fighters.

I honestly feel I was very fortunate to grow up in a period of some truly great fighters 다운로드. Boxers… champions who dominated their respective divisions. This isn’t about Ali and Frazier. The mark they left on boxing is stamped for eternity 해리포터와 죽음의 성물 2 다운로드. No this is about dominant champions like Bob Foster, Dick Tiger, Emile Griffith, Carlos Monzon, Jose Napoles, Antonio Cervantes, Roberto Duran, Carlos Ortiz, Flash Elorde, Alexis Arguello, Vincente Saldivar, Eder Jofre, Fighting Harada, Ruben Olivares, Carlos Zarate, Pascual Perez and Miguel Canto 다운로드.

Then you have boxers who in today’s state of fragmented titles would have surely won a piece of the pie. Tough men like Jerry Quarry, Yaqui Lopez, Bennie Briscoe, Hedgemon Lewis, Ernie “Red ” Lopez, Armando Muniz, Clyde Gray and Ray Lampkin, Just to mention a few 다운로드.

Yes – I admit that I live in the past but these boxers and so many others from that era continue to stir up great fistic memories. We will never know for sure if Hopkins could have defeated Monzon or Hagler sbs 뉴스. We’ll never know if Bob Foster could have defeated Michael Spinks or Roy Jones Jr. I just don’t want to let the greatness of the fistic heroes I grew up with be forgotten 다운로드. Just as I hope the fistic heroes of today will be remembered thirty years down the road.
