    A horrific task this and a real shock after the easier Flyweight task. Five are locked for me and the forum got those.


    Near Miss: It was agony for me watching Peter Herman fall short - a great, great fighter, and the greatest of the best or second best BW era.
    The Big Surprise: I'd say Al Brown. It wasn't unpleasant to me to see him do so well, because he's wonderful, but I thought Herman would have edged him.
    Shocking!: Did I mention about Herman getting left out?

    Aye, Herman not being in is dubious. Tough to justify Brown and Zarate being ahead of him imo.

    It is i'm afraid, but it's not an enormous error.
