Pea barely lost rounds.

This must be Max Kellerman. "Pea barely lost rounds" Tell that to Chavez, McGirt, Rivera, DLH, Trinidad, Hurtado, Bojorquez, and Cocaine.

Manuel Ortiz, an ATG who I can't recall having ever been mentioned, ever.

Mike McCallum doesn't get as much kudos as he most certainly deserves.

Manuel Ortiz has the honor of being the FIRST boxer ever entered into the BoxRec database -- thus has Global ID 1, aka Human 1.

Pretty freakin' cool, in my opinion.

elbows mcfadden

a dirty fighter, granted...but he invented the crossarm defence used many moons later by the likes of archie moore, norton, foreman....he was the fiirst man to knock out joe gans.
course theres no footage though, shame......one of the great defensive masters by all accounts.

You're new around here, huh? You're shit out of luck if you're hoping for threads not to go off on tangents.

Rex Layne when on his good nights - he gets criminally under rated - Infact massively disregarded as a bit of a footnote - for those who don't think much of Rex where do you rate Jersey Joe Walcott and Ezzard Charles on your all time heavyweight lists? Or regarding Charles - on your P4p lists? Rex beat both clearly and was uncompromising hit like a trip hammer and at the time viewed as pretty much the next champ before Marciano ended matters - but he punched Marciano around more than most did on film a real tough guy and he also a great shoot out with Bob Satterfield and out bombed him - who was viewed as one of the very best pure bangers of the era amongst a lot of other impressive wins

Vast majority of the fighters mentioned so far in this thread are no exactly under rated let alone forgotten - mot of the ones being mentioned seem to be very well respected fighters??
