Some folks have mentioned Tony Tucker on this thread, and even though he has definately had a run of weak wins, he's not note worthy of being listed as a padded record guy...

Tucker beat prime versions of Douglas, Broad, Norris, Mccall, and several others. He also went the distance with prime versions of Tyson and Lewis, one of whom he fought with a broken hand, while the other he faced at age 35...

......Lay off of Tucker people......

The only name of note on Tucker's CV before his title chance was that useless lummox James Broad. Douglas then threw away the chance to become champ after looking the better man vs Tucker. Tony only looked hal-decent when losing (to Tyson and Lewis). He never convincingly beat any decent fighters, and, bizarrely, ever time somebody won the crown this lemon was their mandatory. "Hey, you'll have to fight Tucker or be stripped." What? Him again. The most overrated fight of the whole decade- bar none. A 'just glad to be here' type if there ever was one. An awful memory of the stench of 1980s heavyweights.

This is about as padded as it can get before your first loss.

Your wrong, Gardner was a pro in 1976. Me thinks you are getting mixed up with Iowa Mike Tyson (who Gardner beat as a pro).

In all seriousness Gardner was no mug, he had a winning record and a decision win over an ancient Jimmy Young.
