Default Which (current) boxers would you qualify as "gate keepers" ?

You know the type i'm talking about...
good , but not good enough to become a champ.
it could be an ex-champ , or a "has been"...ex-contender...etc...

How do you figure Tyson is a gatekeeper, when he gives up in his fights now? That's not gatekeeper status. He is done as a fighter.

Out of those guys, IMO only McCline is a real gatekeeper. He's the guy contenders and comebackers fight to see if they can make the next level or not.

those other guys don't fight up and comers - even though they are probably gatekeeper standard.

Someone like Guinn is/was a good pick. Monte Barrett is probably in there now too.
