Default Worst Set of Alphabet Soup Champions?

Over the past 50 years, there has been a gradual proliferation of alphabet soup champions.

In terms of the WBC, WBA and IBF champions, at what times have we had the most awful champions? For example, there was a time when Old Foreman, Botha and Seldon were the supposed baddest men on the planet.

It was Bruno, Botha and Seldon, and that is even worse!

I hope you do realize you're responding to the biggest Bruno fan of ESB.


Back in 2004 I thought Byrd/Ruiz/Brewster weren't that awe-inspiring, but they suddenly start pretty badass compared to Botha/Seldon/Bruno.

I think that in the cold light of history, Byrd and Brewster will be seen as prety solid opperators.
