    Although I can ell you very little about them, I have heard of Fernandez, Estaba, Pinto and Pacualito. I believe Estaba was a flyweight or light flyweight world champion.

    Fernandez and Rivas for me, but I’m not going to feel bad about it since I’m sure none of them have heard of me.

    That is impressive on your part, but you are a old classic poster so I should expect that...

    Seems like most recongnize the name Waldemiro Pinto, which is cool, I forgot to post his nickname... "Galo Negro", or "Black Bantam"...

    Pinto was a very good amateur in his days, he became a good pro too but he was even better as a amateur. He won the pan-american championship in Chicago and was a Olympic boxer in Rome.. He was trained by Eder Jofre´s dad Kid Jofre...
    ESPN Brasil made a show years ago where they were visiting old olympics and they searched for Pinto and I remember watching it, and it was depressing, as it is the case with many of the fighters I mention here..... guess what ? He was living in deep poverty,
