He reminds me of Jim McDonnell (current trainer of DeGale). He was Euro Champ but a level below the top guys - although in his defence he fought two all time greats in Mitchell & Nelson.
I did win money on McDonnell against Finbar though. Even picked the round although I think I just bet on the stoppage. It was fairly common knowledge that Barry's scar tissue wasn't all that at the time.
It just shows how much things have changed though. European level used to mean something but not so much nowadays. A bit like the FA Cup being devalued because of the Champions League.....
