Solid list, but I'd have Loi in there.

Definitely, I was thinking about switching Flash out for him but eh.

Doesn't have that level of competition, dude. At least I think. Maybe he'd get a top 20 for me?

Not a good as Young Corbett III? Hmmm... I'll have to think on that one. KG record is fantastic, as is the manner he destroyed so many opponents.

Watanabe was the superior Jr. Bantam southpaw, in my opinion. At his best I'd have favored him over Galaxy. His brother was at least as good as well.

I will admit I am biased because Galaxy was of my time. And upon further thought I guess I have a hard time ranking him above Corbett III.

Thing about Loi, he fights orthodoxed in every clip i've seen.

Nope. YCIII has a few hurtful losses but he has some really great victories: Walker, Conn, Apostoli, Lesnevich, Jack Thompson, Fields.... Nothing even close to those on Khaosai's scalp wall IMO.

Watanabe almost made this list based on looking good doing his thing, but I couldn't justify it.

Corbett is a lock. Looks good on film, too.

Switch-hitter. He was also reknowned at the time for being a rather inconsistent performer. Great one day, sluggish the next. Got the job done even on the off days, though. The scant footage available probably doesn't do him much justice.

There's footage of Young Corbett III? I've been looking for this and assumed it didn't exist.

Certainly it doesn't.

It sure would be nice to see some footage of him fighting southie though.

I have his title winning effort with Fields.
