You need Bob Foster, somewhere between 1 and 5, probably closer to 1.

Decent list overall.

An outside bet: but what about Hamed (from a P4P perspective)? No Louis?

Nice too see Napoles and Mosley getting a nod in this respect. In particular Napoles: tremendous fighter.

The lightweight or junior welter version in particular. Great power p4p and decent handspeed.

FANTASTIC mention, IMO the hardest hitting 135 of all time, and not exactly slow!
