Gotta be Watson for me with Herol Graham a close second.. Just look at the performances against Eubank and Benn and it's beyond me how this guy didn't win a world title..

Hardy was in two WARS with Orlando Canizales, who was amazing.

Cowdell was past his best when he fought Nelson, as well as fighting at featherweight for the first time in years. I don't think McDonnell's record can match some of Cowdell's wins.
