  1. Great post. Fun reliving some of these and seeing others for the first time. That N’Dam KO…good lord.

    • Thanks, it’s always fun to sift through the year’s highlights, even on an annus mediocris.

      I’ve been a fan of N’Dam’s for years, and was fortunate to see him fight live once in Dublin. His foray back to the amateurs for Rio was a failure, but I guess that win technically makes him mandatory for the GGG-Jacobs winner.
