I know you said Mexicans don't count, but this Librado Andrade stat is really impressive:

An interesting question....

My guess is that there are very few if any fighters like that. While it's certainly not unheard of for a strong amateur not to make it in the pros, I'd say a poor amateur almost certainly can't have professional success. If you're getting beat amongst guys that'll never fight pro (like most amateurs), what can be expected when you take a step up?

That's very interesting, if accurate. You would think that a guy like that would naturally give it up, or have someone tell them not to quit their day job. lol

I kinda doubt it's accurate, I feel like it was exaggerated in the way most guys exaggerate amateur wins But it's the only available piece of info, and I remember them saying it on hbo.

The problem was, his day job was at Burger King. So turns out he made the right choice, his talents were much better suited to the pros.
