He springs straight to mind when this topic comes up...He came and went very quickly in the pro's..I know he got owned by tito but surely he could of fought a few more times...

Very True, though in Tucker's case, that knee injury hurt him from becoming a major force by a couple of years.

Jerry Page 82 Pan Am and 84 Olympic Champ (Hilmer Kenty's brother in-law) ran into Frankie Randlall and Terrence Alli. He finished 11-4 was never stopped but I thought for sure he was going to be a World Champ. A few years later I thought the same thing about Michael Clark. There is still a chance although the clock is ticking.
