  • I remember those fights back then. I also remember seeing Tank lose his first fight. It was against a smaller opponent who I can't remember, but the guy was fast and stayed just out of Tanks reach as Tank threw haymaker after haymaker. Tank lasted about one minute before getting tired and that's when the other guy moved in and took Tank down. The fight only lasted just a few minutes.

    • that was Tank in a nutshell. . 100% all out from the start and using that to overwhelm his opponent, but of course he didn't have the stamina to last a much longer match which is why he always went full speed.
