World's Biggest Loser

Meet Bruce Strauss, boxing's biggest loser.

Hey there, Mouse.

Why is he boxing's biggest loser?

Let's check the back.

1991 Kayo
Because it says so.

He probably never even went to Antarctica but penguins would eat a mouse for a snack so we can probably chalk up that continent as a loss for Bruce. Sorry, Bruce.

Even the kangaroo looks like he might have got a decision against mini Mouse. but to be fair, a kangaroo has never lost to a human in hand to hoof combat.

Back in 1976, Bruce should have made a left turn towards........anywhere else than that gym he came across.

Bobby Czyz is the only name I've heard of on that list of champs who have splayed Bruce. So the fact that there is a host of less distinguished opponents who have plastered Mouse is not going to do much to alter the association of your name with being the biggest loser.

With all that, I don't think I would hire him as my manager, but to each his own.


By the way, if you have never heard of the 1991 Kayo Boxing set I would recommend it as a cheap pickup if you ever come across it. It's filled with some great photos and a ton of stats on the back. I spent a couple of hours reading the backs and now have a layman's expertise on  all the weight classes and general history of the sport. It includes a lot of all time greats and those cards are awesome to read.

Thanks for reading!
