Michael Dokes had an 147-7 record, pretty impressive when you consider he did all of it before 18.

Billy Soose- 170-6

A monster who scored mostly knockouts and could boast a win over Charley Burley.

Antonio Tarver is one of the best amateur fighters ever.

What a monster. I remember working with him and being blown away that a young American could be THAT good.

Breland has to be up there but I don't know the numbers.

I think Clint Jackson's was also among the more impressive of his time.

And not sure if it's true, but I remember reading that Hector Camacho was 99-1.

I think you have to go with Mark Breland, who was just a phenom, as best American amateur ever.

But Tarver is close. Is there an accolade beyond Olympic gold he DIDN'T earn. He was the team favorite even then(And he beat Jirov, regardless of what the judges thought).

Antonio was one of those rare amateurs that you were actually scared of. Nobody wanted to fight him.

Not even Mike Tyson had that kind of reputation as an amateur. Roy Jones was around my time, and even he didn't, though we all knew he was stellar.

Great answer. I remember a European boxing mag had Tarver pfp before his first fight with Harding because of am credentials.

Since Breland hasn't been added yet:
110-1
1980 won the Novice New York Daily News Golden Gloves Championship at 139 lb.
1981 to 1984 won four consecutive Open New York Daily News Golden Gloves Championships at 147 lb.
His record in the New York Golden Gloves was 21-0 with 19 knockouts, 14 in the first round.
1981 Intercity Golden Gloves 147 lb. Champion. Breland scored a first-round knockout of Efrain Bennett in the final.
Lost to Darryl Anthony by a 3-2 decision at the 1981 United States Amateur Championships in the welterweight division. This was Breland's only loss as an amateur. He avenged the loss in his eleventh professional fight, winning by a third-round knockout.
1982 United States Amateur Welterweight Champion
1982 World Amateur Welterweight Champion in Munich, West Germany.
1983 United States Amateur Welterweight Champion.
1984 U.S. Olympic Trials Welterweight Champion in Fort Worth, Texas.
Welterweight Gold Medalist at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games.

That's possibly the craziest amateur CV an American has ever compiled. That is literally nuts.

I hold it above many Cuban accomplishments, as Mark was a kid, and had the pro game to take him away. He wasn't dominant into his 30's, he was dominant as a young man.
