tbh the only names that came to mind were elorde and demarco due to the stoppages in the same round.

I am not a hall of famer, but I've defeated a couple members.

I am most famous for going 2-1-2 against one well known hall of famer.

You can tell a certain "tough man" that I am the " real king..."

I was afraid if I said too much, I would make it too easy.

Butterbean has been referred to as the King of the 4 rounders. The person I mentioned actually beat top notch oppenents in 4 round decisions.

I was a middleweight champion, and a fairly good one at that. I defeated a few all time great fighters, and am nicknamed after a natural phenomenon. In the last 2 fights of my career, I was eaten alive by a man with a big cat's name.

I was thinking Harry Greb. But then a 'windmill' isn't a natural phenomenon, and Greb's losses to Tiger Flowers weren't the last two fights of his career (they were the last and fourth from last).

Got it - Gene Fullmer. You know what threw me? Your avatar. I thought you were Janitor and automatically assumed you'd be talking of a pre-'30s fighter.

Here's a good one:

I met a total of seven Hall of Famers.

I fought below the lightweight limit my whole professional career.

I beat Babe Ruth, Abe Goldstein and Tommy Ryan.

Any takers?
