Default Best fighter to never win a title.........by division.

I've seen a few threads here (best fight,best fighter) by division and thought this may be worth a try.



I'm going to pass on posting mine and let some of you more knowledgeable folks take the lead.

it's funny seeing his status grow on the forum the last few years as people like myself are more and more educated on him.

in other words, **** yeah. good call

Very tough not least because so many gained titles and recognitions that others do not agree with...

Heavyweight: Jerry Quarry

Light Heavyweight: Chris Finnegan

Middleweight: Herol Graham

Welterweight: Colin Jones

Lightweight: Jack Blackburn

Featherweight: Pat Cowdell

Bantamweight: Johnny Brown, although Al Francis' (rightly) may debate that.

Flyweight: Dai Dower

This is a starting point, already it is clear Blackburn was better than Diaz, and he won no 'title'.

Frankie Burns must be the man at bantamweight. That is insane bad luck.

Lightweight has the best crew of uncrowned champs for me.

Mempis Pal Moore at Bantam?
Or Gilroy, or maybe the Jap, Takao Sakurai.
Tough one though but I like Janitors picks with maybe McPartland.

I'd suggest Jim Driscoll is pretty much a lock for featherweight.
