I am happy with my Cuba and Australia picks but Benvenuti could take my Italy pick i guess wins over Griffith and Folledo he is worthy.

Could you explain the Ron Richards pick, I'm not that well versed on him.

In the Australian ranks he has been Middleweight Light Heavy and Heavy. Won the middleweight title in 1933. From 1936-1938 he was champ of all three divisions then again 1940-1940.
Cracking fights with Hennerby.
Best wins Lesnevich and Alabama Kid.
2 losses to Archie Moore - 1 TKO 10 and one UD 12.

I guess with all of his achievements at domestic level Tyszu could probably be put ahead of him. Just when i think of Australian boxing i think of Richards .

Not that Pacquiao is not any good. He is brilliant, but would his star shine so brightly, if he was fighting up to a dozen times a year?
What does activity have anything to do with it?

Yeah that's why I picked him. I don't know if he could be claimed by the poles.

If not then I think the best pole would be Dariusz Michalszewski. So I don't agree on Adamek.

I've always subscribed to the theory that Cocoa Kid came from Cuba with the other "Kid" Chocolate.

I think you're right about Cerdan. Where does that leave France? Rene Jacquot?
