Byrd probably does get a fair bit of love considering what he achieved.

So I'll take Mike Weaver instead.
the only times i saw boudouani fight he was getting two gifts vs guillermo jones. both of those decisions were disgusting don king specials. was glad jones moved up to cruiser and eventually won a belt. he deserved one long before that.

Hey Slakka, only saw your post now. Re-read the subject matter - underrated fighters - in other words, there is no wrong answer. If you think Billy Conn is an underrated middleweight, then that's great. So why didn't you name him to your list? As for Vito, I like him. I think he's an underrated middlweight. I liked the way he made up for lack of finesse with unlimited stamina, or lack of punch with underrated hand speed, or susceptibility to cuts with an iron jaw. I liked the way he beat back the challenge of a monster challenger like Hagler, while sick as a dog with bronchitis. I liked the way he handled everything two monster bangers like Briscoe and Hart threw at him and came back for more. I liked the way he won ugly against Corro - a master at slowing down a fight - by throwing caution to the wind and simply banging him from pillar to post. And I think he was robbed against Minter. He was just my kind of a blue-collar fighter.

Somali Ely, the bantamweight ?
Also known as "The Moqadishu Mauler".

He's been criminally overlooked, I agree.

To make my list, you have to atain genuine greatness within your weight class, and you get bonus points for being sold short on this forum:

Heavyweight-Peter Jackson
Light Heavyweight-Jimmy DeLaney
Middleweight-Jeff Clark
Welterweight-Mysterious Billy Smith
Lightweight-Elbows McFadden
Featherweight-Louis Kid Kaplan
Bantamweight-Jimmy Barry
Flyweight-Newsboy Brown

Heavyweight was the hardest, because you cant do much in that weight class, without getting some recognition on this site.
