They are not fighting for ten years
The opening decade of the 21st century is coming to an end and, with the exception of the remaining games to be played in this exciting 2010 2010 boxing tournament, it is time to bring back the glorious years of boxing. It’s a time to remember those who gave color, drama and life to the sport; those who create endless visibility among fans; and they, year after year, have confirmed their kingdom upon the ring by taking the strongest opposition. I mean let’s meet, again, which counts for ten years.
The BoxRec Boxing Encyclopedia reports that “Jack Dempsey has changed boxing from slow, defensive boxing competitions to waging a fierce fight of fiery fights and beatings.” But his life without a ring gave him a bad printing press. Seen by many people as “violent and violent,” the fans are fond of hating him. And when Gene Tunney succeeded him in 1926 after a seven-year rule, fans began to admire him. Tunney was a master of boxing and science fiction, and they found him bored to watch. They threw Jack’s “ultra-masculine charisma and slugger’s brawn.” In Dempsey’s time, no one packed the crowd the way he did.
So far, when writers coined the term “pound-pound” at this time, it wasn’t Dempsey. It was because of Benny Leonard, who ruled as a Lightweight champion from May 1917 to January 1925. Boxing experts said Leonard at the time was the best man, the pound pound. They also mentioned Harry Greb, a Middleweight champion from 1923 to 1926. Greb stunned black opponents in the heavyweight and heavyweight division. He held the distinction that he was the only fighter who ever beat Gene Tunney, a brilliant champion and the winner of the tough king Jack Dempsey.
In the 1930s
Henry Armstrong rocked the boxing world in 1937 and 1938, creating horrors that would continue to be felt to this day. At a time when there were only 8 weightlifting titles, she won featherweight, welterweight and lightweight titles respectively over a period of 10 months (from October 1937 to August 1938). That’s why Armstrong goes down in boxing history as the only fight that ever held 3 world titles in three different categories all at the same time.
Also this time, Heavyweight Champion Joe Louis started the run and would continue to control the opposition until the last quarter of the 40s. Earlier in the decade, Barney Ross stepped up his class in the heavyweight and heavyweight division, beating Italy and Tony Canzoneri, among others, twice.
In the 1940s
World War II temporarily halted the action except in very few cases Joe Louis retained his title even though he was unmarried because of his military service, and when he returned in 1946, he defended it 5 times until Ezzard Charles defeated him in 1950.
In the simplest category, Featherweight Champion Willie Pep was making it hard for anyone not to notice him. He won 229 in his 241 fight, and showed, in the process, his opponents good points in defense in boxing.
In the late 1940s, the welterweight division was running out of warm bodies that could make it a good competition against a rising star named Sugar Ray Robinson.
In the 1950s
Sugar Ray Robinson has always been a master of the elterweights and, for now, was a newcomer to boxing. He reminded Benny Leonard boxing historians Henry Armstrong, Willie Pep and all the great boxers of the division of weight in front of him. The difference between them was that he was better. When he combined the crown of middle weight at the beginning of the decade and excelled in the middle class afterwards, the term “pound-pound” champion who appeared briefly in Leonard’s time was back, and was closely associated with Robinson. Fans found him so good that they beat him up – something that Carmen Basilio and Gene Fullmer loved when Robinson passed his prime – they were looking for a place on the big list.
In the 1960s
Cassius Clay became Muhammad Ali one night and snatched a heavy crown from Sonny Liston in 1964. Producing amazing achievements within the ring and creating a political game without it made Ali very popular – and probably very popular – incomplete this season.
The lightweight division also produced a fantastic bout for Bantamweight fighters champion Edre Jofre (Brazil), defeating Fighting Harada of Japan, Junior Lightweight King Gabriel “Flash” Elorde (Philippines), and Lightweight Team Carlos Ortiz (Puerto Rico).
There was never a time when there was no such great harvest, so to speak, in talent in the heavyweight division as at this time. Ali, Joe Frazier and George Foreman weren’t just people who were Olympic athletes, they were all unsuccessful opponents when they all won the heavyweight championship. Frazier holds the title left by Ali (who preferred to be in prison rather than go to war during the American-Vietnam War in the 60s and 70s). Frazier produced Foreman by going through the KO loss stage. Ali re-won his title in the Foreman after finishing last in 8 rounds.
Elsewhere, Carlos Monzon of Argentina rose to prominence in the Middle Ages in 1970 and ran away from the opposition in that sect until he retired in 1977. .
In the 1980s
Like Monzon’s in the middle class, Duran beat all those who came to the difficulty section. He eventually attacked the welterweight and middleweight division. He won the welterweight title for Sugar Ray Leonard at their first meeting (in 1980), and they left it to Leonard when they returned. Leonard not only did Duran in their 3-bout match, he beat Famer Thomas Hearns Hall and completed the Middleweight decision all the time for Marvin Marvelous Hagler, among many others in the boxing box.
Julio Cesar Chavez of Mexico, Pernell Whitaker, Oscar De La Hoya and Roy Jones Junior led their teams during this time. Although Chavez, Whitaker, and De La Hoya cut paths in certain areas in their careers, one would emerge from its peak in relation to the other. The outcome of their personal game cannot be a measure of who is superior to them. Jones? He was shaken (i.e. time, i.e.).
Jones and De La Hoya finally shared the brilliance with newcomers Shane Mosley, Bernard Hopkins and Floyd Mayweather. All of them will be awarded a pound of points for points in certain areas of the career, with Mayweather considered the best until he retires in 2007. This time, Manny Pacquiao from the Philippines reduced the levels of difficulty in the blitzkrieg fashion. Starting as a flyweight champion in 1998, he won the bantamweight title in 2001, the featherweight crown in 2003, the super featherweight belt in March 2008, the lightweight champion in July 2008, the welterweight title in May 2009 , and welterweight 6 months later. In December 2008, he faced De La Hoya again for £ 147 and bullied him in 7 rounds. Experts have admitted that the nature of his rise has never been done by anyone before.
This time, Mayweather decided to return to the strike, celebrating his return to action with a successful victory over Juan Manuel Marquez in September 2009. A month later, Pacquiao himself cemented his distinctive position among the world’s top boxers by becoming the only fighter to win world titles in 7 tough levels when he defeated Miguel Cotto in the final welterweight title. The results of both occasions left scratching the boxing ground to see if Mayweather could regain his Pawquiao title by fighting. And while the boxing world was waiting, Pacquiao was not made with his belt-catching belt. Only on November 13, did he beat Antonio Margarito to collect a small WBC title in the middle.
