in 1986 after Crawley, he was up there with Hearns,Hagler and Nelson and whoever else was there. I remember him being about 4 in p4p.. So when he lost to Rosario it really was a shock to everyone. Although the morning of the fight, I read in the paper he was a 4-1 favorite to beat Rosario that night. I thought Rosario was going to win.. I just had a feeling Bramble cannot walk forward the way he did and pick off Rosario's punches.
