Yeah him that was three years younger than Giardello with 56 fights on his clock

ONE HUNDRED AND NINETEEN.
Giardello beat Tiger for the title, defended against the number one contender Carter, then defended against Tiger.
Know how many years Giardello was rated in the top ten before he got a title shot?
Champ for two years, then rated for the next year.
Know How many years Benton was top ten rated?
ONE, and only for 6 months.
Giardello has one of the best resumes of ANY middle weight.
Langlois x 2
To name a few
It ****es all over Benton's
