    What fighters do you think are the most under rated H2H compared to other boxers?

    I don't know if he's under rated, but Kid Gavilan definitely isn't talked about much as a top H2H fighter.

    Corrie Sanders. Chin/stamina/golf let him down

    His sneaky left really suited his ring name ‘the sniper’

    Rockista Brain Virus is no fluke! Its out there!

    As long as YOU viral Rocky Marciano fairytales around the web, this disease won´t stop!

    Do you want to make boxing fans look like this?

    Stop heroize Rocky in comic storys, use your common sense and stay honest! Children and gullibles might believe what you type.

    Accept responsibility. Give ROCKISTA BRAIN VIRUS no chance! Thanks.

    Good shoutouts for Flash and midget! Not sure they are underrated as much as unknown to modern classic fans and under discussed and under appreciated.

    Gotta spread awareness of these legends, especially Wolgast. They deserve it.

    TBF I have known of Flash for a while and have been a boxing fan for 40 years roughly...but this past year I began to watch him more and read up on him (not a lot out there). He is defiantly one to discuss!

    Midget sufers from lack of footage and awareness of other eras and lower weight classes. And he is Philly so sounds good to me lol

    And the film on Midget Wolgast looks very good in my opinion.
    Also, check out Newsboy Brown if you haven't already. No footage though :(
    But there is a short documentary on YouTube.

    Kind of ignorant if you. The list would include the likes of Liston Patterson Archie Machen Zorra Joey Maxim many more and yes the great Marciano. Stop being so blind in your hatred. Also Joe Luis should never be mentioned as a 50s fighter.
