Default Who is the most forgotten World Champ??

Which World Champ has been forgotten to history the most???

I'm talking proper world champ, not some rare alphabet belt holder from the early 80's

zarate for his awe inspiring power tall size and reach.amazing record for the times

jofre great fighter man loads of skills had an amazing jab considering his reach....actually the shortest reach of any boxing champion

greb possibly...is the best resume in boxing we forget him becuase we have no footage. we have footage of boxers and we make highlight reels ,famous boxing clinics and tactics that we put on youtube greb never had that and will never be remebered.

Good picks although those fighters maybe more 'overlooked' than forgotten.

How about Jack Delaney?, never hear much about him

George Foreman. Ali KOed him and then silence. If Foreman would've gotten a rematch todays boxing world wouldn't be the same.

Considering every boxing fan ever knows his name and millions of people have his grill I would say he isnt forgotten.

But he doesn't have the status of other HOFers, not to mention people's list of ATGs or GOAT.

BTW, Foreman has his own grill? You mean that shiny thing on those rappers teeth?

So forgotten that I just ask the wife to name some boxers, after a few "er..er...er's" she said "Eubanks...Tyson...Foreman...Ricky...Baby Arizmendi".*




* One of these is a lie of course.
