Don King, on Mike Tyson


"Why would anyone expect him to come out smarter?
He went to prison, not to Princeton."



"To me, boxing is like a ballet, except there's no music
and the dancers hit each other."

Injury

On March 9, 2001, Page fought Dale Crowe at Peel's Palace in Erlanger, Kentucky for $1,500. 

Page appeared to be holding his own with Crowe until the tenth round. 

Crowe said, "The timekeeper smacked the mat with his hand toward the end of the fight to indicate ten seconds were left, and that's when I went after Greg with one last flurry."

Crowe hit Page with a flush left to the chin and then pushed him back. Page fell against the ropes, slid down, and was counted out by the referee.

What followed was chaos. There was no ambulance, no team of paramedics, nor oxygen, all of which were required by law. 

The ringside doctor, Manuel Mediodia, wasn't licensed in Kentucky and was under suspension in Ohio. 

At the time of the stoppage, Mediodia had already left and had to be brought back into the building. 

Twenty-two minutes passed before an ambulance arrived.

Before the fight, Page's trainer, James Doolin, complained to several members of the state commission about the conditions, including the lack of oxygen. 

He then wrote his complaints on a piece of paper and sealed it inside an envelope. 

Doolin gave it to the commission chairman, Jack Kerns, who then gave it back to Doolin. "Mail it to me," Kerns said.
 
Page was taken to the emergency room at St. Luke's hospital, where a
CT scan revealed a huge mass being formed by the bleeding inside his head. 

He was then transported to University Hospital in Cincinnati. 

During post-fight brain surgery, he suffered a stroke and was left paralyzed on the left side of his body. 

Page was in a coma for nearly a week.

For the rest of his life, Page suffered many complications from his injury. 

He was hospitalized numerous times for such ailments as pneumonia, acute respiratory failure, sepsis, hypothermia, and seizures.

Page filed a lawsuit against the state of Kentucky and settled out of court for $1.2 million in 2007. 

As part of the settlement, boxing safety regulations the state enacted the previous year were named the "Greg Page Safety Initiative."

 

Death

In the early morning hours of April 27, 2009, Page died at home in Louisville.

The Kiltschko Brothers Training


  

Worldsport revisits our feature from 2002 on the Heavyweight division's
Klitschko brothers. Shot just before Vitali's showdown with Lennox
Lewis.





The Fight by Norman Mailer


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


The Fight 



In 1974 in Kinshasa, Zaïre, two African American boxers were paid five million dollars apiece to fight each other.

One was Muhammad Ali, the aging but irrepressible “professor of boxing.”

The other was George Foreman, who was as taciturn as Ali was voluble.

Observing them was Norman Mailer, a commentator of unparalleled energy, acumen, and audacity.

Whether he is analyzing the fighters’ moves, interpreting their characters, or weighing their competing claims on the African and American souls,

Mailer’s grasp of the titanic battle’s feints and stratagems—and his sensitivity to their deeper symbolism—makes this book a masterpiece of the literature of sport.

"The Rumble in the Jungle" Muhammad Ali vs George Foreman 30.10.1974


"The Rumble in the Jungle" Muhammad Ali vs George Foreman 30.10.1974





Published on Sep 30, 2016


Watch one of the most well documented fights of all time between Heavyweight World Champion George Foreman and Muhammad Ali in what would be billed as "The Rumble in the Jungle". More info below...

The Rumble in the Jungle and The Thrilla in Manilla are without a doubt the two most famous boxing fights of all time. They transcended boxing and even people who were not fans of the fistic sport have heard or know about these encounters. The Rumble in the Jungle is not a fight filled with boxing skill per say but actually 1 boxer getting the hell beaten out of him and yet coming out on top almost unscathed (at the time) against all odds. It was one of the most unexpected outcomes of any world title fight and a testament to just how great the 1970's era of boxing was. It's also hard to imagine knowing how the fight ended and what Ali was still to go on and achieve in his career, that Ali was actually the underdog in this fight and given almost no chance of winning...

George Foreman at the time of this fight was undefeated with 40 wins, 37 by knockout and a majority of those occurring in the first 3 rounds. In 1971 George Foreman stopped Gregorio Peralta in the 10th round to win the vacant NABF Heavyweight title and in 1972 he beat Miguel Angel Paez to add the Pan America Heavyweight title to his waist. These achievements were far out-shadowed however by his demolishing of Joe Frazier in 1973 when he stopped Smokin' Joe in the 2nd round to win the WBC and WBA World Heavyweight titles. He defend the titles against Jose Roman by 1st round KO and then Ken Norton by 2nd round KO. Foreman had cleaned out the heavyweight division on his way to the top and was seen as invincible. He was one of the heaviest hitters to ever lace gloves, undefeated in 40 fights and still only 25 years old. He was the clear standout favorite to win against Muhammad Ali even though he was not the most liked...

Muhammad Ali went into exile in 1967 following his refusal to fight in the Vietnam war and had to give up his World Heavyweight title. When he returned in 1970 the boxing landscape had changed and now Joe Frazier was World Heavyweight champion. Muhammad Ali was quickly given a shot at the new World Champ however much to every-bodies surprise Frazier would pull off the upset and win a 15 round unanimous decision. Although Ali would bounce back with wins against Jimmy Ellis, Mac Foster, George Chuvalo, Jerry Quarry, Floyd Patterson, Ken Norton and Joe Bugner among others, the Ali of the 70's was not the same quick footed bouncing Ali of the 1960's and his wins were not seen as anywhere near as impressive as Foreman's.

Please sit back and enjoy one the most famous fights in history, and if you have yet to watch it, you are in for a treat!
