    Herol Graham. definitely.

    I'd read about Graham in forums and magazines before I actually watched his fights, and by the way some people were talking I was expecting to see the Uks version of Sugar Ray Robinson! But the hype nowhere near matches what I saw. He didn't look anything special at all, and he wasn't particularly good to watch. He was flawed in numerous ways, and lost every time he stepped up because of those flaws. He had his chances and failed.

    Very soon when ( not if) KId Galahad loses again their will be so much comments to bump and laugh at by @Bent-nose aka the ring cleaner of the Ingle gym Amer Khan. Cause he's lucky he's gonna get a another shot he doesn't deserve, he won't get a third.

    His overrating of him reminds me exactly of the when the scousers used to overrate Joey Selkirk. Sparring this, sparring that lol sparring doesn't mean anything plus theres no proof.

    Wait for it--- Henry Cooper :nonono ok so, of 14 loses, 8 were by KO, to name a few, Bygraves, Johannson, Patterson, Folley, he lost on points to fairly mediocre heavy's as, Roger Rischer, Amos Johnson, traded off flooring The Great One for the latter part of his career, yea for me a bum !!!!!

    Cooper was knocked out 4 times, not 8.
    In America, injuries, cut eyes, broken hands, tripping over a loose shoelace etc are for some curious reason deemed to be knockouts.
    The other 4 losses inside would have been due to cuts, twice against Clay Ali and earlier career fights against Bates and Bacilieri

    Would have only been one winner and it would not have been Ricky.

    A good number of those "losses" were cuts he was still very much a live dog in due to his paper thin skin and also fights where he should've got the nod but didn't e.g. Bugner.

    At 140 I'd disagree, I'd take Hatton.

    147 is a different story

    Bizarrely a lot of people thought the mayweather fight was a 50/50 fight
