His only losses were to lightweight greats like Buchanan, Kenny Lane, Laguna. Only Buchanan could stop him because he was past his best.
He unified the division, made ten defenses over two reigns. That's the ****! What a resume! Then you have his win over ATG Duilo Loi, along with Kenny Lane and Battling Torres at 140 too. Not that it should affect his standing at lightweight.
Yeah...Ortiz huh? Great fighter.
I saw that Ortiz Charley fight, if memory serves it was put on to close Harringay Arena which was a great old venue where I was lucky enough to see a lot of famous fighters. Also saw Charnley lose to Brown, 2nd time. If Ortiz and Brown are 6 and 7 then It would be interesting to see where Charnley rates, they didn't beat him by much.
