My God what an horrendous card. Byrd was the only one that looked respectable. Holyfield should REALLY retire, he looked slow and worse...without that fighting spirit he always had. Ruiz and Golata was a travesty and maybe the single worst headline bout I've ever seen. This PPV proved once again how sad is the heavyweight division.

That's partly because when he was in trouble in other fights he went the low blow. To say Lewis beat him decisively may be an understatement too. Golota couldn't comprehend what was happening. That's gotta take some getting over, if he could ever recover fully......

I can't believe that would be even close to true. I'd expect Gatti to end up around a 5-to-1 or 6-to-1 underdog at best. NO WAY the know-nothing, casual crowd (who I would presume would push the line closer to Gatti, in your thoughts)
