    Your absolutely right there. Your turn Fred !

    Felix Savón, Cuba
    from: San Vicente, Cuba
    Personal:
    Age: 32
    Height: 6'5"
    Felix Savón has been dominating boxing since 1986, when he won his first of six world heavyweight championships (although in reality he lost in 1997 to Rustam Chagayev of Uzbekistan. Chagayev was disqualified soon after due to violations of his amateur status). In 1999, Savón forfeited his chance for a seventh world title by refusing to fight Michael Bennett of the U.S. to protest a decision given to a fellow Cuban boxer in an earlier match.
    Achievements:
    1999 World Championships, silver
    1998 Goodwill Games, champion
    1997 World Championships, champion
    1996 Olympic Games, champion
    1995 World Championships, champion
    1995 Pan American Games, champion
    1994 World Goodwill Games, champion
    1993 World Championships, champion
    1992 Olympic Games, champion
    1991 World Championships, champion
    1991 Pan American Games, champion
    1990 Goodwill Games, champion
    1989 World Championships, champion
    1987 Pan American Games, champion
    1986 World Championships, champion
    1985 World Junior Championships, champion
    Currently:
    With a gold in Sydney, Savón can match the feat of countryman Teófilo Stevenson, the only fighter to win three Olympic boxing gold medals in the same weight class. He might have already done so, if not for the Cuban boycott of the 1988 Seoul Olympics. As the reigning world champion in 1987, Savón would have been a medal favorite.
    They Said It?
    "I do not like professional boxing. There is a tremendous difference between Olympic style and professional boxing. In the professional ranks the athlete is not protected at all, they don't take care of him at all and of course the main interest is earning money. It's a very dirty sport. In Olympic style boxing, the amateur sport is very clean and it's truly something that is good for the athlete," Savon says.

    [GLOAT] i knew who he was without googling [/GLOAT]

    Bahrami is a tennis player, at the moment he's a regular of the Wimbledon Senior's Double tournament, he's a practical joker, a good laugh if you've never seen him play before

    Yeah, I knew who it was too

    I&#39;ve seen him a few times now, a good match was him playing mixed doubles with Anna Kournikova against Henri LeConte and Martina Navratilova.

    A very entertaining chap
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think &quot;Ok, this is the limit&quot;.
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    Good call. I love the guy too - especially the story of how he met his wife.

    Your turn.
