I liked Jefferson's power. And Fletcher did go pretty far with that style, he had good power himself. Fletcher was ranked at the top for awhile and was in line to fight Hagler before Wilford Scypion beat him. Probably a good thing because Hagler would have murderized him. The thing about fighters like them is that they are very exciting and sell tickets but usually have short careers.
About the amateurs Rockin', did you have many amateur fights and looking back do you think more amateur fights would have made things better in the pros like it might of for Derek Jefferson?
