I'm looking for the Boxer in the Gray Flannel Suit. Who is he?
I could be wrong because I've only seen the fighter fight once against Jermain Taylor, but Cory Spinks strikes me as a fighter who has so shining qualities about him. I've heard a lot of fight fans say the same thing.

Does Cory qualify?

Former Welterweight contender Wilfredo Rivera fits this bill perfectly.
He wasn't flashy,he was a steady uncomplicated toiler who was always in shape and came to fight.
But he didn't excel at anything and always fell short when he came up against the elite as losses to De La Hoya,Vargas,Moseley and Whitaker shows.

Heavyweights Bob Stallings, Leroy Caldwell, Ted Lowry and George Chaplin are some who might or might not fit the criteria requested here

Bruce Curry. Even when he won his WBC light welterweight title, he wasn't particularly impressive doing it.

Rafael Rodriguez, Randy Shields, Arturo Leon. No matter how good his opponent was, Leon almost always made him work until the time limit expired. The only title challenger of Arguello's to last the 15 round distance.

Allentown PA's Willie "Fireball" Rodriguez. Knocked SRL silly in Ray's second pro bout (the only one to do that until Duran in Montreal). While Fireball did hold the USBA and NABF light welterweight titles simultaneously, he really did represent a dividing line between genuine contenders and boxers who might be inadequate challengers for a world title shot themselves. Allentown can be very proud of Fireball's ten year career. A rugged consistent customer.

It's not that there is anything special about him per se but we are looking for mediocraty and there is no way Spinks is that.

He beat Zab Judah.

He beat Mayorga.

He was able to be compettitive with MW champ Jermain Taylor and he was a world champion in multiple weight classes.

I consider Wright to be overrated and not close to ATG status.
