He got the first shot on the back of the Scypion, Parker and Minter wins, but Parker was a gift and Minter was very reticent and past his prime by then...he would be obliterated much more impressively by Sibson.

parker again, Czyz(a protected fraud who would do better at 175)and Benitez before the rematch.

It's not really any more than Sibson, Mugabi, Roldan, Davison...were doing.Hamsho was up there but not ahead of the pack.He just a better presence on the American east coast scene than most which was vital considering Hagler was champ.

Good post

For me the minter fight could of gone either way in fact I had minter ahead by a point I think
