Depends what you call an "ATG" I suppose....

Him and Nunn were the standouts in that division at the time, to rank them 1 and 2 is right.

I think 1993's top 4 are that far ahead it compensates for the rest of the divisions 50-50's. Liles beats all bar Kessler. Close, Cordoba and Wharton prob don't cut it until below Bika.

I've got to go with 1993 by quite some way note GB and Irelands conribution jumps all the way up to 6. Not bad.

And Toney had that win over Nunn at MW...though it shouldn't really count in a SMW ranking

Damn! And to think Super Middle is one of the strongest divisions today and yet they are almost blown out of the water by their 93 counterparts.

This is getting very depressing now.

Middleweight is complete tripe compared to that
