Dont know what you mean on the first one. I'll say Collins.

Pat Cowdell probably.

Sammy Meck is what he told me.

He did beat Eubanks.

Kilimanjaro battered in the 8th

He did beat Eubanks.

Kilimanjaro battered in the 8th
collins had the most padded record thanks to frank ****** of any british prospect ever.

he was on tv virtually every 6 weeks or so ****** saying he will step up next time, then he would get rocked, ****** 4 more gimmee`s then a slight step up and rocked again, 4 more gimmees then rocked again until finally a british title fight and lost twice on the bounce from memory and that was that.

pat cowdell was not a journeyman.

IMO it was the man who ko`d cowdell in 1 round
najib daho a true 20 loss journeyman who would fight anyone and everyone and was a good fighter despite the huge losses on his resume.

he gave all the top fighters of the day a good fight

a man who rocked mcguigan in the 9th at the kings hall-juan laporte best chin by far IMO.

fought a who`s who of ATG feathers/130/135/140 and never even wobbled a fighter not often included in best chins but IMO along with hagler the 2 best chins of this 80`s/90`s/00 era.

yep went 1-1 v eubanks -snaeaky question by myself.

yep poor old proud kilimanjaro
man mountain but slow as treacle
