His top 10 (imo) are

1 McClellan
2 Eubank II
3 Barkley
4 Galvano I
5 Piper
6 Galvano II
7 DeWitt
8 Wharton
9 Simms
10 Logan
Never judge a fighter by numbers, judge him by ability. The tall, rangey talented Morgan was taking fights on a few days notice until he fought Tiozzo, when he had a three-week training camp and clearly beat him. He had a six-week training camp for Benn. Benn knew if he could beat Lenzie well he could beat the best in the division and take on Harding/Andries/Barkley/Hearns at 175. Morgan dwarfed Nigel. And Benn out-jabbed him for 10 rounds straight when LM was coming off a 10-round jabbing shut-out over European jabber Tiozzo (only to be robbed blind).
