You're just like your hero Leonard who only fought on his terms as well.
he's too old anyhow (have you seen what John looks like?) and those are fights I just don't take. i'm sure leonard would take it though.

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.
Chaplin is up there, but maybe not the most. James Broad is too.

I don't think mediocre quite captures Jackson, N. He defies description.

I'd say John Ruiz but I'm not sure if he qualifies, so I'm going with
Peter "I rocked Tyson" McNeeley. The man even has his own website, 'Hurricane Watch':

Axel Schulz. He did rise above mediocrity when he handed an aging Foreman his ass, but the judges saw it otherwise and resume-wise he couldn't get past mediocrity. He was a solid boxer with an excellent chin.
