Lee Q. Murray might be number 1 for me. A switch-hitter ala' Marvin Hagler. Solid boxer and crippling puncher. Plus he had Ray Arcel in his corner. He was kicked out of Tony Galento's training camp when just out of the amateurs for dropping TTT in sparring. He and Arcel both claimed in the press that Lee Q. dropped Louis in sparring as well (to the best of my knowledge, Louis and his camp never denied this).

Henry Flakes. Probably the only ranking boxer to ever die in the electric chair. A crazy story there.

Rusty Payne was Charley Burley's protege'

Curtis hatchet man Sheppard rated Lee Q Murray - in an interview behind prison bars Sheppard said he thought Lee Q Murray coulda beaten both Holyfield and Bowe - which gives you some gauge to how respected he was by his peers - Murray dropped Tiger Ted Lowry 7 times and forced him to retire inside 5 rounds - Marciano couldn't drop or stop Lowry in 20rounds
