That's always been a quote I thought was completly stupid, and doesn't apply to actual sports. That being said, it's very hard to beat the man when he flat-out refuses to fight you
, and chases vanity fights with smaller fighters instead.
I mean, come August of 2013, if Anderson hasn't defended and he's still listed as champ, he
would be highly disputed in my perception. Champions defend, bottom line.

what ruined Roy's career.
I don't think Georges will be able to keep the weight on, personally. I can see him making a run at MW, but I think he'll retire, or move back to WW before too long.

To the guys who would defend him--the Anderson-or-die fanboys--the concept of him even needing defense is completely outside of their comprehension.
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.
