I read a statistical article which calcualted ,comparing the best to the average in various stats based sports, and working out how often you'd expect the best stats to be replicated,  that  Bradnam's test batting average will probably be a record for 700 years.

As for Dixie Dean's record.  Not so streets ahead of others as you might think.  The year previous to Dean's record breaking season George Camsell of Middlesbrough got 59 league goals.  Also Messi scored 70 goals this season, albeit in all competitions.

Andrew ("Andy") Gordon Ganteaume (born January 22, 1921) is a West Indian former cricketer who played as an opening batsman and occasional wicketkeeper. He was born in Belmont, Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. He is noteworthy for scoring 112 in his only Test innings, against England at Port of Spain in 1947/48, which gives him a higher batting average than Donald Bradman, who is universally considered the greatest batsman in the game's history. However, lists of all-time averages rarely include those who have played fewer than 20 innings.

I still think Ripken's consecutive games of 2,632 in baseball takes some beating.

That's 17 years of playing baseball every game of the season - 161 games played over 178-183 days (from April till September), not including any postseason games, every year for 17 years.

To physically be able to compete at a top class level of sport almost every day for 6 months a year, for 17 years, is quite staggering when you think about it.
How many sportsmen would be able to do that without having days off for injury?

The wiki link to his career is good reading, especially '1995' which describes his record breaking run.
The game was attended by President Clinton and Al Gore. Ripken received a 22 minute standing ovation for his feat - and ESPN didn't even break off for a commercial break when it was going on (astounding behaviour for a Yank tv network!).,_Jr.

The longest boxing match ever fought took place in New Orleans on Apr. 6, 1893. The match was between Andy Bowen and Jack Burke, both of whom claimed the lightweight title after the reigning champ, Jack McAuliffe, retired. The winner-take-all purse was set at $2,500, and in order to decide who was really the new champion, the match was to be fought to a finish.

All through the contest, the fighters went at each other aggressively, pounding each other with their gloves, inflicting and sustaining tremendous punishment. Yet, as the 3-min. rounds wore on, neither fighter could put the other away. The incredible bout continued far into the night, lasting over seven hours in all. When the bell sounded for the 111th round, both fighters, dazed and weary, gave up and did not come out of their corners. At that, the referee unbelievably ruled the bout "no contest." Burke never fought again. Bowen fought only one more match; he died after being knocked out in 18 rounds.

This is one of those arguments that can never be settled either way, but after seeing and hearing about the doping controls that are taking place in many Olympic sports throughout the majority of the world, It's just a gut feeling I've got.

You'll notice my use of 'many' and 'majority' in the paragraph above.....
