In all fairness, I think most would pick Galento, and rightfully so. He fought in championship fights and even floored Louis once. In addition, he had some decent wins over a few top contenders as you say. I will say however, that he was rather dirty fighter. he beat Lou Nova once by constantly getting away with thumbing him in the eye. Bad officiating that evening.
