Default Tomato cans that fought the most big names

A tomato can that fought a lot was David Jaco. I counted about 14-15 big name guys he fought.

Anthony Ivory deserves a mention, although I don't know if they were truly big names.

Believe it or not ribalta has been in the ring with all these guys.
Impressive. Not sure I'd call Ribalta a tomato can though.

Ribalta was in fact in with a shout as Tysons next opponent after the Carl Williams fight but he had a horrible showing on the undercard.. Mike Opted for Douglas, If only !!! Jaco fought everyone but rarely beat any of the top names that he faced except for Razor Ruddock who he stopped up in Canada... Picture that, It was in fact blamed on an ashma attack.. Marion Wilson is that tough chinned bastard who comes in as an equal to Ollie McCall for iron chinnidness....LOL.. But even Marion had a few great outings, he obtained a draw with Ray Mercer a few years ago.. Heavyeight Lorenzo Boyd fought a load of top names and if you ever saw his fights against Gay Mason.... Tyrell Biggs.... Tyson etc .. he had a picture perfect way of making his exit.. he was almost every time caught with an uppercut and flipped onto his back quicktime.. Like an on Q surrender.. Heavyweight Sam Scaff is your arcietypical stiff who lost to everyone.. making a living doing it...

God bless.. (sometimes the sun even shines on a dogs ass)

Ribalta was a fighter who declined to journeman status later in his career, but he was never a tomato can. In fact, he was a ranked contender at one point, and a man who could both take and give a hellova punch.

I wouldn't call him a tomato can. He was actually a pretty good fighter.

The 26-18 Jesse Ferguson. The skills to go so much farther, but he could never consistently apply them.

The 23-13 Corey Sanders, who literally gained a hundred pounds and lost his last seven fights. Became a punching bag for big name fighters.

Meh, calling them cans might be pushing it, though.

Yeah, I wouldn't call Ferguson a can. Most of his losses went the distance, and almost all of them were to rated fighters. Plus, he beat a few decent fighters as well, and had a record that was well above .500.

One that springs to mind from the current heavyweights is Marcus Rhode.

Been there, done that, got knocked out by them.

Tommy Morrison, Brian Nielsen, Joe Hipp, Jeremy Williams, Lance Whitaker, Vitali Klitschko,
Peter Okhello, Lamon Brewster, Shannon Briggs, Andrew Golota, Butterbean, Lou Savarese (twice!), Rob Calloway, Calvin Brock, Kevin McBride, Eddie Chambers, Riddick Bowe, Travis Walker, Cengiz Koc, Jameel McCline, Bruce Seldon, JD Chapman.

Have gloves, will eat haymakers, that's Big Tuna.
