He didn't beat Rahman when Rahman was any good. He beat an over-the-hill Rahman in a meaningless fight between two has-beens in 2008 (actually changed to an NC, when Rahman quit with a cut after 3 easy rounds). They fought over two years earlier, and Rahman was unlucky to only get a draw, imo. I thought Rahman beat Toney quite clearly in 2006.

Officially he went 0-2 against Peter, but I thnk he won the first fight, making it 1-1. He beat Peter, imo, in a close fight in 2006, but in the rematch a few months later he was beat in a clear and decisive manner.

He beat Ruiz fair enough. And Jirov was his best win ever above 160.
But I'm not sure this record proves him to be anything special.
