    Good one George. With regards to the bolded i am always inclined to bracket Corny Boza Edwards with them. Navarrete is never far off either. Some real barnstormers among that lot.

    Basilio has the unique honour of being involved in five consecutive Ring fights of the year.

    Even accounting for the sometimes baffling choices for the Ring year-end awards, there have been fewer world class fighters who were consistently involved in stand-up wars.

    So many good ones already mentioned.
    Kevin Kelley deserves a shout out as well.
