Smallthoughts: Old School Tuesday …Earnie Shavers

Earnie Shavers

He was called the hardest puncher of all time and that was saying alot about the man called Earine (the Acorn) Shavers. Joe Fraizer, George Foreman, Ken Norton and Larry Holmes had made their reps as being hard punchers, but Shavers was a class above that. It was like getting in the ring with a man who had dynamite in each hand ready to go off. Yet for all of Shavers knock out power, he never won the heavyweight title even though he had a shot against Muhummad Ali and against Larry Holmes. Today well give Earnie Shavers his due.

Welcome to Smallthoughtsinasportsworld. We keep it fun and we keep interesting and informative. On Tuesdays we go back in time with Old School Tuesdays, on Thursdays we keep it fun by Smallthoughts Trivia Thursday and on Fridays is Smallthoughts: Rant of the Week and Smallthoughts:Rave of the Week and we also post the answer from Smallthoughts:Trivia Thursday. I am a lifelong New York Mets, Knicks and Jets and Giants fan. I root hard for my teams and have rooted for them even when it wasn't and in some cases still isn't easy. I enjoy talking sports, and on here I get to write about it as well. I have my thoughts hence Small thoughts, we will not always agree, but respectfully speak about what we feel.
