    I'd definitely include him in the top 10. Cracking fighter in his day and would probably be the #1 featherweight today.

    You disagree that he'd the #1 featherweight today?

    Anyway, off out. Chat soon, champ. Brush up on your spelling and grammar whilst I'm away, won't you, son?

    Not to highly. McGuigan avoided the great Azumah Nelson which greatly detracts from his record. I question his intestinal fortitude!

    Is Ian still posting here?

    Good grief, he never leaves his computer does he. Hope he's used the time to brush up on his grammar and spelling.

    Both Scott Harrison and Naz had better records than McGuigan and both would have best if in same era. Also McGuigan aint British
