Specifically résumé or achievements in general? Because I wouldn't include Foster if it's the second, but I wouldn't include Bowe if it's the first.
Either way, my answers are Orlando Canizales and Mark Johnson.
Specifically resume. I think Bowe's resume is pretty poor outside of his wins over Holyfield.
Yeah, me too. Wins over Tubbs, Biggs, Cooper, Ferguson, Hide and technically Golota twice doesn't make a great resume, but I don't think it makes a bad one. If you throw in the wins over Holyfield, I think he's well above somebody like Foster or Vitali.
It's a Miracle !!!! I Finally get to say the name Mayweather .. 130 to 140 lbs is fair for him , tough H2H ..... He is the Answer to this thread and the Million dollar question ... How great was he really ?? who knows
Oh ya RJJ at 168 is another
Does Ricardo Lopez even qualify? He doesn’t have a great resume, but it’s still by far the greatest resume in the history of the Strawweight division.
Herol Graham, Chris Eubank Sr
Michael Watson as well.
Pryor is a ****ing great mention.
Resume: 43 yr old Hopkins, 40 yr old RJJ. Jeff Lacy and Kessler, Chris Eubank (Chris had only 2 fights in 2 yrs). Not great?
It's the old cliché.
If they have weak or lackluster resumes, then doubt inevitably creeps in that they are head to head greats.
Why do you think that is? Somebody like Bob Foster had a long, dominant title reign but it was in the worst light heavyweight era. I think the doubt for Bob comes from his heavyweight run.
To be honest I give somebody credit for a good run in a weak era.
I don't see it as being an easy thing to achieve.
