He'd probably just be outside the top ten bantams of all time I'd say. I'd have the following before him: Eder Jofre, Carlos Zarate, Terry McGovern, Ruben Olivares, Fighting Harada, Manuel Ortiz, Erik Morales, Jeff Fenech, Owen Moran, Panama Al Brown, but he'd be right in the mix with the likes of Lionel Rose, Jeff Chandler, Khaosai Galaxy and the like just underneath those guys.
That's a fair shout. I class him as just reaching the "great" category i think. Excellent left hook up and down, that sucker wore down many a decent foe.
