Default Re: Forgotten great lightweights

Here's a lightweight who potentially beats everyone at 135, but hardly anyone mentions him: Packey McFarland.

Lost only once (in his 7th pro bout) in over 100 fights, and beat the likes of Owen Moran, Freddie Welsh, Jack Britton, Jimmy Britt, Kid Herman, Harlem Tommy Murphy, Cyclone Johnny Thompson, Matt Wells and held his own with Mike Gibbons well above his best weight and past his best (in a comeback fight almost two years after he retired).

Here he is against Freddie Welsh: (Part One) (Part Two)
