When James Cook fought him, he was convinced he was an Irishman until he saw him at the weigh-in.

Hall of Fame broadcaster Reg Gutteridge gets a surprise visitor from Muhammad Ali whilst receiveing treatment at Hammersmith Hospital in 1989. Gutteridge would write in his autobiography that he awoke to find Ali praying beside him and thought he was hallucinating!!

Another weight class would provide an extra bracket. The weight differential between the original 190lb at cruiser and some of the bigger heavies these days is just too high, which I believe is why they raised cruiser to 200lbs in the first place.

Heavyweights are so enormous now. Maybe they should put the cruisers back down to 190lb and keep the current cruiserweight limit as an intermediate between cruiser and heavy. I know adding another weight is unpopular, but it's the fighters' health that matters more than anything.

It's so humid out there tonight. God only knows how the trainers are coping wearing those masks and visors.
