    IMO, Golota fouling Bowe is not a great achievement.

    I don't know if Pascual Aranda qualifies as a real contender, but he was beyond courageous in his loss against Antonio Esparagoza and landed some big shots and was surprisingly present against a world class p4p champion. A fight I would believe he would be proud to show his kids and grandkids.
