    Johnny Saxton's ability is underrated due to the shady happenings of his career.

    Fernandez was fantastic. One of the most crowd-friendly styles in boxing.

    Really like this shout, Bob. Teddy is a top fifteen middleweight in my opinion and he beat some heavy competition. Guys like Conn, Moore, Overlin, Dundee, Brouillard ect; ect. Absolutely brilliant fighter.
    Great post.

    Watched my first Johnny Bratton fight today.

    Never seen him talked about on this forum, and he looks ****ing incredible for a guy with a 60-24-3 record.
    Held the WW title and arguably could hold a win against Kid Gavilan.

    I recommend anyone who hasn't seen it to watch Bratton vs Gavilan 2, proper enjoyable high level fight.

    Without a doubt, i mentioned him too, he would beat Ezzard Charles at hw no question about. And would be a very dangerous fight for marciano
