As it is said in this game: "$ame old $yet. Different time. Different Playa [sic]. Terry had a china chin. Three g has an iron one. And it's going to take intense heat to melt it.

    Three 3g is good -- very good -- but the present crop of middle that he's fought have been accommodating his crobra-ism. He is more cobra than Froch. And many cannot see it because of inattention blindness by his pop and bang. But with certain types of fighters, he cannot hang. Holla!

    I see some similarity. The main difference is Terry's defense wasn't any where as keen as GGG's.
    Terry was so quick he would fire off an eight punch combination like it was nothing....while standing straight up ...China chin flapping in the breeze.

    Watching the guy was like watching a crapshoot. Sometimes he would score an astounding early KO, other times he would be the victim. Personally I was never a fan because he was so inconsistent.

If he loses, how can he still be the champion? All other divisions can circumvent this by fighting one pound over their strap limit. At the strap limit if you don't win, how can you still be considered champ?

    Side note. Jake "The Snake" may be a great guy, but if the question was name the most ordinary guys to ever hold a major title and I didn't name him within five, sure sign I have the onset of Alzheimers.
    Only just saw your response after all these weeks.

    Thanks for that Dino.

    I forgot to add to my above/long piece that Kostya Tszyu - in addition to what achievements I have already described and detailed - was the first guy to unify the light welterweight division in ~ 30 years.

    Nuff said.
