Mustapha Hamsho- tough Sirian took all of Haglers best shots and never went down. Beat Benitez in an upset, tough as nails decent fighter who had a granite chin. Early 80's fighter largely forgotten now but tough and pretty good in his time.

Mathew Saad Muhammed. Exciting fighter IN THE 80'S, scored many come from behind dramatic KO'S.

Dwight Braxton later changed name to Muhammed Qawi only 5'8" at light Heavy but built like a tank gave Holyfield and Geroge Foreman all they could handle. The Camden Buzzsaw was his nicknmae a true badass.

Danny little red Lopez- tough little redhead with Dynamite in his punch. featherweight champ mid to late seventies would get knockedown or be behind and would still get up or come back and win by KO. It all ended when he met an unknown at the time named Sal Sanchez.
deliver the KO to save the day.

A few more from recent times;

Nazarov. He was definately on that Mike Mccallum "who needs this guy" opponent list for the big named guys.

Galaxy. At the time, you had to send away for his bouts & he certainly mowed down a lot of guys. Rarest of breeds too--southpaw brawler.

JC Gomez at cruiser. He had that nice run and was another guy on that who needs this guy list when guys were moving up in weight.

Brian Mitchell. Road warrior and another guy that never got the big matchups or got a high profile fight that would've seen him shine.

Being TRULY obscure would mean not ever winning a title, like the two guys I mentioned, Nardico and DePaula.

Tony Ayala would fit. He was so promising back in 1981-82, went to jail and became nothing more than a bad memory.

LES DARCY: excellent Australian middleweight and heavyweight champion boxer/puncher during the Great War period. Badass who was never stopped in 50 fights and strong contender for greatest Australian fighter ever.

BILLY PAPKE: held his own against the fierce Stanley Ketchel; a true brawler.

CEFERINO GARCIA: very powerful Filipino world middleweight champion; credited with inventing the "bolo" punch.

Freddie Pembleton came out of the school of hard knocks and there was a fighter named Art "the Dart " Kettles who fought Cyclone Hart in his pro debut became a tough guy on the short end of some tough fights...Tom "the Bomb" Bethea was another tough guy....Bob Stallings owned a prime Earnie Shavers...and Trail horse Mike Weaver became a new fighter after his title loss to Holmes, Mike was a 19-8 clubfighter....Ross Purity another sleeper
