Based on them earning big fights and being avoided:

1. McCallum (avoided by Fab 5)
2. Herol Bomber Graham (avoided by everyone)
3. Lennox Lewis (avoided by Bowe/Holyfield/Moorer/Tyson/Foreman/Seldon/Botha)
4. Vitali Klitchko? (Did Lennox, Tyson, RJJ, Byrd/Ruiz avoid him?)
5. Wlad Klitchko?(Did Lennox, RJJ, Byrd/Ruiz avoid him?)
6. Junior Witter (avoided by Hatton for 7 years, mandatory to Mayweather, couldnt get shots at Cotto/Gatti/Harris - he jsut beat Harris as WBC Champ, wanted Corrales, now trying to get Malignaggi in the ring)

2 & 6 are from the same gym

Most at the time wanted to see Hearns/Duran over Hearns/McCallum; then when McCallum had another chance to fight one of the fab four, he blew the Kalambay fight.

Were the Kalambay fights (against McCallum and Graham) fair results? I didnt catch those, and dodgy decisions are notorious in Italy

Kalambay must have been some fighter though if he beat McCallum and Graham fair and square
