    I think Erdei would have beaten all of them.
    I dont think he was as under the radar as you say, but one that was high risk low reward
    Erdei was a LHW champ for a long time, undefeated and beaten some top LHWs in Sahnoune, Garay twice, Gonzalez as well as other recognised names like Ulrich.
    Consider also how Erdei some opponents were suitable opponents to some of the other recognised names after Erdei had beaten them

    Under the radar, as in: Non of the U.S. fans or media were knowledge of him, meaning that there was no public demand for the fight.

    Pavlik, Winky and Dawson had name value.

    Bernard wasn’t going to go out of his way to face someone like Erdei.

    I agree, I think he could well have beaten them all.

    He’d have been far too much for any post Johnson version of Roy.

    Hopkins and it really isn’t close. He beat Jones at that weight so there isn’t really any question as to who would win because the fight happened. Hopkins also beat Tarver who beat Jones easily twice. Hopkins also was THE champion at 175. Jones was nothing but a trinket belt holder.

    I’d love to see Jones vs Kovalev as well. No way would Glass Jaw Roy be standing at the end of 12 rounds.

    That is a very definitive post.
    Do you also feel Hopkins has the better LHW resume?

    You point to the body of work which is a fair debate.

    Would you feel that overall Ottke has a greater resume at SMW than Ward?
    Ward has a better win over Kessler and possibly/debated Froch but overall Ottke has the far greater body of work
    As an example?

    Do you think Pavlik at LHW could have beaten Woods or Telesco etc?

    The question was who has the better resume at the weight?

    Does Tyson Fury have a better resume at heavyweight than Wlad, and it's not even close?

    Jones was 20-6 at light heavy. Hopkins was 9-4-1 (with 1 no contest) at the weight.

    Winning %s based on those LHW records :

    Jones 77%
    Hopkins 60%

    So Jones has 11 more wins than Hopkins and a 17% higher winning percentage. Those are pretty significant numbers in Jones favor.
