Not that many if any can string together so many KO1s nowadays (against any sort of opposition).
Danny Williams isn't seen as some destroyer of worlds, in fact he isn't held in any regard. I have seen Dempsey top 5 on p4p lists. So that begs the question, what are we basing this on? Clearly not opposition, not longevity, not any type of definable aspect it would seem.
