    Tinkerbell Tyson was NEVER a Swarmer, he was a Stumpy-Slugger. :deal

    He was no Pryor, Tyson or Marciano, but there waa this 140lber from the early/mid 90s Britain who had dynamite in his fists, but absolutely no chin or defence.

    Paul 'Scrap Iron' Ryan; A slugger, who unlike The Hawk, Iron Mike or The Brockton Blockbuster, (who occasionally were in dull fights), always gave 100% value for money, win or lose.

    Not a favourite journeyman slugger of mine yet, but I saw this Mike Keta guy fighting on BoxNation while waiting for the Fury fight to start, & he was pretty damn exciting. Anyone else know who I mean?

    I was a fan of Acelino Freitas.......later when he said that he was better than Jofre I stopped to like the guy (and he said that seriously, not simply to promote himself)....
    But definitely exciting to watch, and he was a slugger IMO.....

    a slugger to me is Rocky Graziano and Iran Barkley Andy Ganigan, guys that were ready to go out on their shield in a shootout as a game plan
