Default Most useless British Heavy of the post 70s era.

Gotta go with Harrison, i mean he had the medal the physical dimensions and in the beginning the pull of the public, he was handed everything on a silver platter and still ****ed up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I went for Francis. The guy got paid by a sponsor to have an advert on the sole of his shoes. He knew he'd get KOed against Tyson so got paid for doing so.

Audley because after such a big build up he was a monumental let down.

Gotta go for Funso Banjo, he had the right height and size, but all he ever did was slap flurry his opponents sides, AWFUL

not everyone can be a champ you know. they all had the bottle to get in there. biggest dissapointment would be audley, but i hate labelling any boxer useless.

I would not call any useless but Audley had to be the biggest disapointment, like many hae said he had all the tools to be real haeveyweight legend on these shores.

Still after watching last nights fight if he can get himself back together he could still be a legitimate threat.
