This thread has crumbled, without starting with the foundation of Eric.

My first impression is to name charlie. let me research these other guys first to give honest, more informed, opinion.

That being said.....

Brian Sutherland
Reggie Strickland
Peter Buckley
Charlie Zelenoff
Audley Harrison
Dean 'Kid Crochet' Martin
Richard Dawson
none of the above (please state)

Peter Buckley, 300 fights only KO'd 10 times, been 8 round distance many many times. went 3 rounds with Acelino fretas and was first guy to go the distance w/ Naseem hamed (6 rds).
definitely not him.....

Reggie Strickland, ko'd 25 times in 363 fights. Wwas getting KO'd from time to time. When the rules changed and fighters got mandatoy time off for KO losses, he went the distance in all his matches. Never saw him, but i get the feeling if he trained for a win, his record would be a lot better..reggie is good, definitley not the worst.

You should have included Eric Crumble. Chekc out his record.... I'll be back later

Does anybody remember Bruce "The Mouse" Strauss? He once, according to legend, fought twice on the same card, being introduced in the second fight as his 'twin' "The Moose" Strauss. I saw an interview in which he talked about a promoter that refused to pay him. The interviewer asked him how he got his money and "the Mouse" replied "Just because I'm the worst pro fighter in the world doesn't mean I can't fight."
Classic line.
I agree with the poster above, about Reggie Strickland. You don't fight 40 times a year if you are out there taking beatings.

Anyone able to go the distance, I'm eliminating them now

Brian Sutherland.... two 1 round stoppages
Reggie Strickland
Peter Buckley
Charlie Zelenoff.... 1 round stoppage
Audley Harrison
Dean 'Kid Crochet' Martin (went 6 rounds)
Richard Dawson
none of the above (please state)

Is the the richard dawson you are referring to ????

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

If so, I'm eliminating him because never KO'd and won a match by KO1 and a decision.

WOW. i am in shock. he really should be on the list instead of Kid Crochet.
I would still have to vote for The Man, The Myth, The Legend that is Brian 'Mullet Man' Sutherland though, everything about him is just wrong

Ok watching sutherlands fight on youtube. Charlie is definitely the better fighter: rangier, better form and judging by beating mr slam man int he zelenoff laundry room Charie hits hard.

Mullet man is worse than charlie...

The longest I've seen charlie go without quitting was 1 minute, 39 seconds. that was in charlie's legendary 0-1 fight against Hartley.
Against Chris KUD, his longest run was much less than 00:01:39 seconds. charlie quit 7-8 times against the Kud in their sparring match.
charlie might be able to starch this bum in 60 seconds, it is possible.
If mullet man lasts past 90 seconds, the tide starts to swing drastically in his favor. Refs do not allow The "breathers" charlie demands every 5 to 30 seconds after his 1 min 30 sec. gas tank is empty.


**** it, my pick is charlie wins. mullet boy is the suckiest. I'll mark it on the poll

the mouse should do stand up, he is funny as shit in his interviews. Side note: chuck wepner is a good funny interview, a very witty guy. So who knew?
Mouse strauss was a good fighter, not a great fighter in anyone's list, not even his mom's ATG boxer list.
