Seen that fight Jeff where he turns his back on him. You canít help think his mental scars held him back and messed him up, sad really

Bit of a rebel in the area that was for sure. Ruled by the fist and not to be messed with, from a fighting perspective, I respect that

Met him a couple of times , a bloody lunatic , much better fighter out of the ring than in. That was world in action programme i think , Still holds the record of fighting for a title after only 8 pro fights, turned his back in that against john l gardner.True hard man who feared no one, his son is a lifer infact both his sons i think.There is a film being made about him due for release next year.

A few people discussed Paul Sykes a while ago. I was watching some boxing and came across this, thought I would share it

Paul Sykes

Sad story really, misspent youth and upbringing sadly. There are a few chapters

I stayed up and it quickly became clear to me that Smith had no intentions to win the fight, damage limitation exercise and snatch his purse on the way out before moving up a division.

Canello is differerent Gravy

Said he would lose. Canelo is the best boxer on the planet for me, he is immense

Made me laugh when some of the pundits were saying he canít take the power or handle the reach of Smith. He bet Kovalev who was an absolute monster and has been in with GGG twice!

Credit to Smith he stayed in their and took the punishment, JG was going to pull him out after the 9th!

This game is about levels and he was a couple below.

Be interesting to see what happens next

Worth a listen to an interview that Trish Morrison had with Dennis Taylor from ringside boxing show. Certainly not her or experts understanding that he died from aids and explains what actually killed him.

…dit - Is there only aids that can cause multi organ failure then?.

Certainly an interesting story of how a 12ft piece of gauze was left insideTommyís chest and is this what is claimed took Tommyís life. Might find it was this the primary cause of multi organ failure.

The Nevada Athletic commission who stated tommy had tested positive for HIV have they not since admitted that Tommy never tested positive for it?.
