Pareng Dido, You have a good point about stamina and I, probably, have used it incorrectly in our discussion. Case in point is Muhammad Ali's unexpected 8th round knockout win over George Foreman in Zaire in 1974, when Foreman, who was used to fighting via shorter route because of his punching power, lost his stamina and punched himself out by the 4th round. Of course, the intense heat in the jungle that night didn't help Foreman either. But I think prizefighters nowadays are much stronger and better because of the much- improved nutrition and type of training they get compared to those fighters of yesteryears. Elorde was a great fighter and I'm not taking that away from him. But his 88 win-, 27 loss-record lack the luster in comparison with the boxing records of modern-day fighters. Imagine Pacquiao having a 49-27 record coming into the ring against Miguel Cotto who has a 34-1 record. Would you be impressed? Yes, Elorde could have been the greatest Filipino boxer of all time but that's before Pacquiao. Pareng Don
