From about a generation earlier, slick Detroit boxer Lester Felton. Anyone who can take Kid Galavan the distance in a close bout immediatly prior to the famous Gavilan - Robinson bout probably needs some more recognition. Detroit's Bill Miller also spoke very highly of Felton, and since I think very highly of Miller...

Ted 'Tiger' Lowry- most famous for a hard-contested loss on points to an upcoming Rocky Marciano, although also fought (and lost to) Moore, Walcott and sparred with Louis.

And one from left field, or the left side of the US...the handy Light Middleweight, Kenny 'the Emerald City Assassin' Ellis. I boxrec'd just before posting and was fairly suprised to see he's kind of active...as a 175lber!

Thanks Guys, there are some interesting choices selected. Some fighters I know quite well, some I have heard of but know little bit & some I had never heard of.
