When Nunn was the IBF middleweight king he looked absolutely sensational at that time. Brilliant fighter at the time.

Looking at the list the obvious one that don't belong in the company talent wise is AA , saying that ***y is the only current Middle that could hope to cope with the rest former welterweights or not .


Good thread mate .

The list was not who i thought were the best middles, it was just made off the top of my head. the only criteria was that they held a middle title over the last 20 odd years. There was a few i could have included but when i reached ten i thought that was enough to compare to the current crop.

No offence Crusher, but i think Tito would have had the tools to handle Sergio, they are both very small middles.
As for AA, no current middle has the power to dispatch him and if any of them make one mistake against him it's all over rover. IMO.
Any way some interesting replies and it gives me a chance to read something else apart from the endless mind numbing Mundine V Geale threads.

I think Pavlik fighting Hopkins at 170 was a big mistake
I reckon if he never did that he would still be the main guy at 160, A showdown between Pavlik & Abraham would of been great.

Watched a terrific interview with trainer Joe Goossen talking about Michael Nunn & just how good he could have been.

I agree Prowler........the loss to Bhop & the ease in which he did it really demorilised Pavlik.

He was 3-1 favourite to destroy Hopkins. It was a ploy to get Calzaghe to fight him. Bad move.
