I remember several of these clips, but I don't recall the parachutist crashing the bout. I do remember watching the Benny "Kid" Paret/Emile Griffith fight live on TV. I was at a bar in the 90s watching Tyson bite off part of Holyfield's ear and then spit it out. What a class act he was!

And I remember listening to the live radio broadcast of the Clay/Liston fight.

Cassius Clay read the following poem on the old TV show "I've Got a Secret":

Clay comes out to meet Liston and Liston starts to retreat,
If Liston goes back an inch farther he'll end up in a ringside seat.
Clay swings with a left,
Clay swings with a right,
Just look at young Cassius carry the fight.
Liston keeps backing but there's not enough room,
It's a matter of time until Clay lowers the boom.
Then Clay lands with a right, what a beautiful swing,
And the punch raised the bear clear out of the ring.
Liston still rising and the ref wears a frown,
But he can't start counting until Sonny comes down.
Now Liston disappears from view, the crowd is getting frantic
But our radar stations have picked him up somewhere over the Atlantic.
Who on Earth thought, when they came to the fight,
That they would witness the launching of a human satellite.
Hence the crowd did not dream, when they laid down their money,
That they would see a total eclipse of Sonny.

BaggerBob, thanks for the memories.

Holyfeild was also known as a dirty fighter. Always head butting. But a very sneaky the way he did it. He derived his ear getting chopped.
I have recently started boxing, so i want to know weather i should buy RDX gloves or not? I need suggestions from the list of these boxing gloves
