So i see this fight is on. Very interesting. Whilst Tarver is passed his best, Green is no spring chicken and returning from surgery that could have ended his career.

Say what you will about the hand wraps, green would have knocked roy out regardless. He has always been a very heavy handed fighter.

Who wins?

Tarvers punch output has never been that good. but he is a good counter puncher, which may cause problems for Greens aggressive style.

I say Tarver by KO

And I agree Roy's face looked different - and older kinda - in that first fight with Tarver. In the rematch though I thought he looked like himself again.

Ali looked in phenomial shape? Are you kidding me? Ali was begining to show signs of parkinson. Plus during his training for that fight he was getting beat up by his sparring partners and he was slow as hell. You ar right about looking in shape and being in shape are two different things. But ALi did not look like he was in phenomial shape.

ali got himself to the lightest weight he had been in years... im fully aware of his physical condition he was in internally... but his outward appearance looked like that of a man that turned back the clock... he bamboozled a lot of people into thinking he actually had a chance in that fight... thats why i said looking and being is two different things...

He didn't bamboozle that many people. There were many people fearing for him in that fight with Holmes. I think the only peoplewho believed in him in that fight were Ali and his camp and his camp prolly had some reservation but didnt say anything because he was Ali. But yea being I shape and looking it are two different things Ali may have been his lightest in years at that time but he looked far from from being the Ali we all know

i was a kid at the time... i remember the fight tho.... i can vaguely recall people giving ali a shot... just watched a documentary on the fight on espn classic called 30 30 where fans where giving ali a shot in the fight.... there where other fight people that where totally against the fight but a lot of fans gave ali a fare chance in the fight.. there was some good money put on ali on the books... it was a pretty good con job making that fight...
