    Man, I missed it. All I ever get to see are the same Ali fights over and over. It would have been great to record 20 of Ali's fights all at once, and watch them whenever. If anyone hears about this happening again, let me know if you could. I havent sat down to watch TV in months, so I never know when theres something worth watching on.

    The wepner fights a classic for sure. I cant beleive that Ali was able to hold his head down and hit him about 10 times in a row before he could make an escape, then do it again, again, and again. Actually I'm not sure whether wepner was able to get away, or whether Ali just got bored and figured wepner would learn his lesson (Which he never did). That fights on TV all the time.
    yup wepner is my fav too also all of ali's fights with kenny norton and the joe Louis fights

    ESPN Classics is having a Muhammad Ali marathon this weekend. 20 fights in a row, spanning Ali's entire career. The Wepner fight is sure to be on, and if you haven't seen it, make a point of doing so.

    Interesting and confusing

    but if you were to clinch with your head in his chest and then stand up quickly as you threw a punch, catching the man in the chin with the top of your head, it might benefit you somehow.
    Kinda contradicts what is written.


    It might also benefit you to use your forearm across the man's neck to gain some space and then accidentally snatch the underside of the glove cuff across his face. This is especially effective if your cornerman has been kind enough to rough up the tape or even roll it under some so that the sticky side is somewhat exposed.
    Ditto


    But all this stuff is completely unfair and should never be used in the ring. Unless of course, you're losing anyway and just can't handle letting the bastard get the best of you.
    Then using such illegal tactics in a regulated fight shows you or one, not to be truely skilled at all. Thus, one should not be in the ring in the first place. There is no justification for winning a regulated match, with anything, by cheating. Cheating=Lack of True Skill

    Wel, I guess the only "dirty tricks" would be in a regulated ring.

    Queensbury rules had no tricks, sort to speak. Back then, a boxer had to be one tough person to be able to receive such blows. The victor the one that can take the most.

    rub your beard in their eyes when you get in a clinch. You can get away with that.

    punches downward on the bladder to make them piss themselves. Kidney shots, Rub your knuckles in the hollow behind the ear, etc.

    Man there's so many. I think there was a thread on stickgrappler about this. I've been looking for a while and just cant find it.

    In the street there really are no "dirty tricks"; everything goes. Whoever gets meaner faster usually wins.

    A punch to the back of the neck/head.

    This is known a lot in the "old school" of boxing.
