He only stayed in Britain. Did he fight cab drivers?

Right now, I have no CLUE how on earth he is always ranked as one of the very best ATG's.

I put him on the list I did because I didn't know enough about him and thought I'd submit to the greater knowledge pool...acknowledging I'm still yet to learn about many fighters.

How exactly is he better than a monster like Galaxy or someone like Ricardo Lopez?

Keep to the topic please.
This is the trouble with Boxrecers
