Default greatest amatuer ever...

Tarver had an outstanding amatuer career. Felix Savon, of course, has to be in the discussion.

Kostya Tszyu was a pure badass!!

Still is a pure badass.

But other then that I heard every single one of Freitas amateur fights ended in KO.
Don't know much else.

Agreed, KT was a phenomanel amatuer. I am sure some of the cubans that I have never heard of though would probably be better from an amatuer perspective.

You would be hard pressed to find a more complete and devastating machine than the 1983- 1987 version of Cuba's ANGEL ESPINOSA. As far as most dominant for a weight class..NOBODY ran a weight class like Mark Breland did at 147 in the first half of the 1980's
