Default Modern Day Classical Records

Fighters of past eras routinely fought far more often than modern fighters.

On top of that, they didn't participate in modern cherry picking, and therefore had more "flawed" records.

What modern day fighters have similar records that could be misleading to the uninformed?

Glen Johnson comes to mind, at 47-11.

Nooo. Not what I'm looking for.

GOOD fighters with a higher than the norm (For today) amount of losses.

Evander Holyfield comes to mind as well.

Harold Brazier comes to mind, but I don't know what his final career tally looks like.

Mike Weaver is another guy with a very patchy record for a former champ.

Speaking of Weaver, a lot of the variable 80's guys have records like this.
