Barney Ross ,who could box your ears off,lacked a big punch to go with his skills.
Lew Jenkins ,raw and crude,never trained,sometimes drunk in his corner,could hit like a welterweight.
Al Singer ,won the title with a 1 round ko of Mandell,[Sammy was never the same again],and lost it with a 1 round ko to Canzoneri.
Interesting guys ,if not all greats
