I don't think Tommy was bigger than Barkley. He was taller but not bigger. Barkley was a big guy who could fight all the way up at heavyweight. Barkley was strong but not great skills.

I can remember a couple of Eubank fights when i was a kid that i thought he'd been well beat in, cant remember who against but they stank a bit.

Personnally i thought Hatton beat Collazo, just.

Haven't seen it since the time but I seem to remember the James Kinchen fight was controversial. How did you see that?

Yup. Hatton was working hard early and getting the rounds in. The 12th gets overblown way too much though, it was a good 15 seconds or so but Hatton came right back in the last minute. People scoring it 10-8 are mad.

you are right! I totally forgot about that. yes some people including Kinchen and his trainer thought they won. How did I forget that one. Maybe because in my mind Kinchen was never meant to beat Hearns and ye I thought Tommy won the fight. Kinchen had rounds like round 4 and 6 and others where he hurt Tommy, but Tommy edged the rounds with activity and experience. Those who favored Kinchen looked at the rounds he hurt Thomas, yet I think when we looked at rounds Hearns edged it. Hearns showed he wanted it, and Kinchen had the fight won had he pushed it, but he didn't. And then Hearns got another fight with Leonard and the Hill fight a few years later and beat Hill. And odd stylistic situation is the Kinchen lost to Hill in round one with Hill's left counter punch. Kinchen walked right into it. Thanks for reminding me. You proved me wrong for sure. I forgot this one.

Barkley was fat at heavyweight. Anyway he was at 175 long before Barkley.

Alright Mag, wasn't trying to prove you wrong. The Kinchen fight just came to mind when I read your post. I remember watching it back in the day and I remember Tommy's limpet routine in the 4th more than anything.

I really like Quarry but in my book he lost twice to Patterson.

Whitaker lost to De La Hoya, I have it close but clear for Hoya.
Froch lost to Kessler by at least 2 rounds.

He however won by a point vs Dirrell on my scorecard.
