Not far off, but not the very best I'd say. I'd give Quartey honorable mention

Yeah I looked at him too, but Mayorga is hardly the best

I've found a few I thought were perfect, then you find some early or late loss to a nobody and it ****s the whole thing up

Michael Spinks only lost to Tyson.

Mike McCallum - take Tiozzo out and you've got Jones, Toney and Kalambay

True, although Mayorga was the "man" at WW after he beat Forrest twice. But then he got beat by Spinks.

Ingemar Johanson only ever lost to Floyd Patterson

Patterson himself lost to Liston x2 and Ali x2 of course but also Jerry Quarry, Ingo and Jimmy Ellis.

Doesn't make the cut, but even so, no mugs there

Paulie Ayala

Only lost to Morales and Barrera (also has a loss to Tatsuyoshi in Japan but a very controversial one, fight stopped on a cut which was from a headbutt but ref said it was from a punch)
