Wasted his talent by fighting bums constantly. Falls behind Carl Froch in the brit legend stakes.

Lacy was wank though wasn't he. Says a lot that he's Calzaghe's 2nd best win.

Called RJJ shot in his autobiog, didn't stop him putting on and promoting a fight with him 3-4 years later.

Still a legend though.

Hopkins
Kessler
Eubank
Reid
Lacy

IMO, are his best wins. Plus he racked up some very solid domestic wins, some decent contenders (like Mitchell, Brewer, Sheika, etc). People are a little over-critical of his WBO run when, in fact, it wasn't that bad.

At SMW he's only really missing Ottke as a contemporary champion. He beat the consensus number one guys in his division at an advanced stage of his career. He stepped up to 175 and beat The Man at the weight in Hopkins.

The Jones win was just a victory lap, so not worth being upset over.

Can't argue with any of that.
