Default Re: Name the best challenger these champions failed to meet

Are you certain on that? I don't have ratings during the year to compare, only stats so I'm not as fluent on it as you. However, looking at their wins, Valdez had a very impressive KO over Euro champ Heinz Neuhas, who was rated higher than both Wallace and Satterfield. Also, Charles was inactive for about 5-6 months leading up to the title shot. Anyways, I believe even if Charles was rated number 7, he would have got the title shot over Valdez. I saw Valdez' fight with Hurricane Jackson and he looked like a monster in there the way he annhilated Jackson. I think this is the reason Weill steered Rocky clear of Nino. I wll say this about the Cuban. This was about the best time of his career these 2 years because he was very erratic after this and before.
