Don't know about everyone else but a couple of easy questions in the mix would make these quizzes more enjoyable. Mostly I just guess rather than knowing the answer.
2.5 -
Did Irvine not make his debut, score his first points and get into his first fight with a three-time World Champion in 1993. It's worth 1.3333 points to me!
