from 130lbs to 160lbs in the modern era one man was a major threat to take a belt from any one. < ROBERTO DURAN > Mikey! Great Board.

And if I had to pick just one from that list it would be Eduardo Lausse. He was an amazing puncher. In his prime (mid 50's), lots of middleweights avoided him.

4 fighters that I thought of immediately when I seen the title of the thread were:

Featherweight: Azumah Nelson

Jnr. Lightweight: Rafael "Bazooka" Limon

Lightweight: Ike Williams

Middleweight: Carl "Bobo" Olson

I'll have to think about the other fighters, alot of depth to each division.

Mine - in the original 8 -

HW - Tyson (Louis or Johnson also , but i pick Tyson just because im a fan)

LHW - Charles

MW - Greb (just needs to be seen)

WW - Robinson

LW - Duran - imo he had the perfect style of fighting, when at 135 was the best blend of defence and offence ever to box.

FW - Would have to be Pep , i notice there are a lot of fighters in my list , so some defensive brilliance should be included.

BW - Jofre

FLW - Lynch

If i can add another 2 i would pick Pryor at 149 and McCallum at 154.

I know i might have picked some very obvious choices , but these are just the ones i would like to see again . Also , Loughran was a very close choice at 175 , but Charles was brilliant and gets it
