    1. Nonito Donaire unbeatable from 112-118. He would be favored over every fly, superfly and bantam in history.

    2. Henry Maske I think he gives a lot of trouble to a lot of different ATG lightheavies.

    3. Oscar De La Hoya below 147 is a special special talent.

    4. Freddie Norwood at most there are maybe 6 FWs I would favor over him

    Now THAT is Chaney. "Hard Times" is the greatest unknown movie. Chaney greatest rail riding bo ever. Even over A#1. It's not Bronson, it's Chaney. "Things have a way of coming around."

    Are you insulting the GREAT Freddie Norwood?

    Saoul Mamby.

    At 140, no matter who you match him up against the result is either:
    1) Mamby wins
    2) Mamby loses, but his opponent struggles and looks unimpressive

    Maybe Sumbu Kalambay? Yeah, yeah, I know. That blowout loss inside a round to Nunn. Not easy to explain. But I think it was a bit of a freak occurrence - not that Nunn won, but how he won. He wasn't a one-punch knockout artist, and Kalambay was usually very cute defensively. That one round knockout went against all common sense and I'm more inclined to think that Nunn (while still the favourite in any case at that point) just caught him a little cold and it was one of those one-off kind of things.

    But that aside, Kalambay is a difficult night's work for most Middleweights in history, and even within his own era he's too easily forgotten. McCallum had the bogeyman reputation as the guy the likes of Hearns and Hagler didn't want to face, but Kalambay dominated and outclassed an unbeaten McCallum - it's one of the great performances of his time. With a different set of judges, he could easily have beaten McCallum (himself a genuine great) a second time, as I had him edging the rematch by a single point, too, albeit it was close and I can't have any real complaints.

    Took Herol Graham's '0' as well, pretty comfortably (although their rematch was close). Graham was another member of the 'Who needs Him?' club, lest we forget. Solid wins over Collins, De Witt, Barkley etc. At least one of his losses (Kalule) was an abysmal decision. Kalambay had ring craft, speed, great durability and stamina, could counter with the best of them - yet the lad hardly ever gets a mention these days.

    Definitely an underrated head-to-head nightmare for many guys at 160.

    Sumbu is a great mention. McCallum gets great traction H2H and i reckon Sumbu is surely around that calibre.

    It was the 1/100 chance that actually happened. Real shame.

    I think Nigel Ben at 160 or even 168 is a handful for anyone of any era.
