Heavyweight boxers tend to die early. Yet, I think he's not a good pick. The cancer won't kill him quickly, it would have to be a combination of factors. 

This year however, I think he's a very good pick. Main team worthy even.

Agreed. I didn't believe that he was as bad as the headlines made it seem, but my confidence in picking him increased throughout the year and even though he didn't go last year - I should have had him on my list. He's on my main team this go around.

Yeah, once it became very clear that his cancer was still going after his initial hospitalization I knew he was a goner

Pretty much an automatic pick once Michael Spinks tweeted what he did in late December.  Hit #7 for me.  RIP, Champ.

Never saw that just knew he had incurable prostate cancer which had spread to other organs, nearly died in hospital in 2019 and also that he had dementia and was wheelchair bound

Didn't realize he died, all news channels here were too busy fussing over Christopher Plummer's death.

Others may have mentioned it but of the five men who defeated Muhammad Ali, only Larry Holmes is now alive. Spinks, Norton, Berbick and Frazier being the deceased opponents.

Thank You:lol:

Don't know what the fuck I did, I missread the post thinking that Holmes was the last living opponent of Ali and mentioned Foreman, I then edited it to point out my mistake and somehow this happened. :facepalm:
