Hall of Famer Riddick Bowe Joins Team Fight to Walk!

2015 International Boxing Hall of Fame inductee and former heavyweight champion Riddick “Big Daddy” Bowe has joined Team Fight to Walk.
 
An elite heavyweight in his heyday, Bowe captured the undisputed world championship in 1992 after besting then-unbeaten Evander Holyfield. Bowe and Holyfield fought twice more, with Holyfield winning the rematch and Bowe dramatically stopping the future hall of famer in the rubber match. The Bowe-Holyfield trilogy is considered one of the greatest in boxing history. In addition to twice besting Holyfield, Bowe defeated former or future champions Pinklon Thomas, Tony Tubbs, Bruce Seldon, Michael Dokes and Herbie Hide.

When anticipation disappoints: Boxing’s most notable disqualifications

Outside of a fight being cancelled or a fighter getting cut during a fight, there is nothing more frustrating than when a referee calls for a boxer to be disqualified from a bout due to their antics. Last Saturday night in Las Vegas, Brandon Rios comeback Argentinian opponent Diego Chaves was disqualified after being warned several times for unsportsmanlike conduct in the tenth round. Rios himself was deducted a point in the fifth for handling Chaves to the canvas. Other fouls in the fight included rubbing the glove against the face, excessive clinching and butting, continuing a disappointing run of bad fortune for Rios, who was also caught after his fight with Manny Pacquiao for using a banned performance enhancer.
The history of the sport consists of some anticipated and memorable fights concluding with disqualifications. This is what is going to be analyzed today.

Lennox Lewis vs Riddick Bowe, What If?

This fight should have happened. At one point they were the two best heavyweights in the world. The public salivated for the prospect of these two meeting to settle who was # 1. Lennox Lewis wanted it. Riddick Bowe did not,thus this “Super Bout” never materialized.

What if Bowe and Lewis did meet ? This would have taken place after Riddick beat Evander Holyfield and Lewis had destroyed Razor Ruddock.It may go something like this. The battle begins with the two giants trading jabs. Bowe’s is quicker but the Lewis jab carries more power. When they do mix on the inside Bowe seems to have an early advantage. By the third round Bowe’s trainer Eddie Futch instructs Riddick to pick up the pace. He obliged by landing some flashy combinations to the head of Lewis. Bowe has also landed some nice uppercuts and appears to be getting off faster then Lennox.
