Mediocre fighters are guys like 26-28 records that the vast majority of fans have never heard of.

FUNNY YOU SHOULD SAY THAT BUT MEDIOCRE Bob Stalling had a 21-24 record and was 5"9 he dropped Shavers for a 9 count and beat him on decision just before Shavers draw with 13-4 Jimmy Young. ClubfighterRon Stander took Shavers best and KO'd Earnie in 5. Quarry blitz him in 1, still earnie had power but other than that he was mediocre, Sorry to say, its not to say who did he almost beat who did he beat and who did he lose to.

What are you saying, Shavers would go undefeated because he would not longer run into the demons of the late 80's, i.e. Bob Stallings, Tex Cobbs, Bernardo Mercado...

AS i said, trouble is Earnie would still have to face Tillis (As early Tyson did) , Tillis beat Shavers in the early 80's. 20th fight, Earnie faces Tillis as Tyson did and GOODNIGHT IRENE to the undefeated record

Yeah, thinking she was Hermione (cut and pasted from JT's post) is an insult to the chick in the pic.

Shavers gets to bask in the glow of the vastly over-rated 70's. He was the very definition of mediocre in every regards except his enormous power. The assertation that he would do any better in the 1990's or the 2000's is the product of myopia.
