    If that's too tough, you can choose a fighter that there is film of but just not a lot. And as the title says, not Harry Greb!

    I'd like more Ezzard Charles, but my answer John Henry Lewis. I feel he fits the question better. And preferably, his five fights with Maxie Rosenbloom!

    Eddie Booker. Pisses me right off that there is zero film of him.

    I think we posted that one simultaneously. Needless to say, I concur!

    I think that McGovern could be my option as well. I'd love to see at least one Maher fight as he's one of my favorite old timers.

    James Figg or Jack Broughton would be fascinating for historical value.

    Welterweight Robinson, the early parts of Haglers career.

    Young griffo. He's being described as this amazingly fast and clever boxer... so if we had film of him, it may give us a clue about how good (or bad?) a great boxer looked back then.

    Also Sullivan would be interesting to see. Was he just a strong, primitive brute... or was there also a hint of actual ability?
