    I have to put a shout in for Jock McAvoy's 2 round destruction of reigning Middleweight Champion Babe Risko. Seemingly utterly forgotten now.

    Honeyghan beating Curry to become undisputed Welterweight champion.

    John H Stracey beating Jose Naples to become WBC lineal Welterweight champion.

    Fury beating Klitschko has to be mentioned, so does Fury beating Wilder.

    Stracey-Napoles does get overlooked. Accepted that Napoles was on the slide, and he was always prone to cuts and bruising, but very few British fighters have a victory overseas against a longstanding champion of that calibre.

    Yes, it was very much right place / right time, but probably no more than Hatton-Tszyu for example. Even Honeyghan-Curry and Turpin-Robinson I had some element of the stars aligning to them.

    (only Honeyghan-Curry was overseas out of them, but just illustrating a point about how Stracey-Napoles often gets missed from that company)

    Just imagine the scenes had Hatton beat Mayweather. Was not to be.

    Nardiello was a literal ***** who probably should've been campaigning at 154lb, but wanted big money fights (got one vs Benn).

    Not even that close to even landing a clean punch of any note, let alone beating him
