Juan Domingo Roldan from Argentina. Got thumbed by Hagler in a 1984 fight that turned the tide in Hagler's favor after really troubling him early. Savaged middleweight contender Frank 'the animal' Fletcher on the Hagler-Duran undercard in November 1983. Roldan had Hearns badly hurt in their 1987 middleweight title fight before being kayoed himself in a great brawl.

Some of his punches were quite compact - so there are better choices than him.

how can i forget,

world cruiser weight champion ricky parky, this guy was very effective at such a unorthodox style of looping punches and loading up.
