    The most ovverated fighter in history. Bad balance, especially when boxing. Weak chin. Breakable resolve. Tires out. Weak.

    I think Walker, Robinson, and Burley ought to be good favorites.

    I think Tommy Ryan would do it, but much more ambiguity.

    Mostly off his record. Not a lot of fighters are so consistent against good opponents, I think that says a lot about his class.

    Ryan was also a good puncher in his own right, could get off the canvas to win, or win in grueling fights, and even out of shape put up a good effort against Kid McCoy.

    Plus I think he has to have had one of the best natural boxing brains in history.
