One of the rarely mentioned possibilities in the Ortiz-Mayweather fight is the possibility that Floyd comes in rusty and faded; that is, he grows old overnight and in plain sight at which point Ortiz will let loose with his shock and awe and bludgeon Floyd right out of boxing. But surely that can’t happen right? Wrong. It has happened before. I remember when it happened to Wilfred Benitez and it was both sad and ugly. It happened in 1983 when he was beaten up by Mustafa Hamsho in Las Vegas and he was 45-2-1 at the time. It was painful to witness.
Can you name others?
