I plan to check this out.
I've seen videos of him training before and there's no doubt he's a beast but I frimly believe the fact that he isolated himself to train as opposed to training with a respected camp prevented him from being a truly dominating heavyweight, possibly the greatest ever.
He had all the physical tools and drive, I just think the fact that he chose mediocre trainers and didn't train with other elite fighters to spar with, set him back.
I believe he sacrificed greatness for privacy.
I also knew after his illness (that would have killed an ordinary person) he was done. Shame too because if he got smart and stopped training in his own gym in MN he could have been pushed to greatness.
