Well if you are going to include Tommy Morrison, you might as well include David Tua and Shannon Briggs.

And don't forget Zab Judah.

Tommy Morrison
Michael Grant
Francisco Bohado
David Reid(though i think this one may have more to do with his eye injury)
Sam Peter
Zahir Raheem
Joel Julio(may be jumping the gun here)

any others you guys can come up with?
Tony Ayala and Sugar Ramos.

About 40 years ago spanish stone-lifter Jose Manuel Ibar Urtain was a huge sensation, with 30 straight knockouts - but faded away after being outboxed and stopped by Henry Cooper.

Around the same time american heavyweight Mac Foster was seemingly heading for the big-time, knocking out his first 24 opponents... but was then exposed by Jerry Quarry, who stopped him in 6 rounds after giving the crude Foster a boxing lesson.

Ibeabuchi looked so good when destroying (a prime) Chris Byrd and dominating the always dangerous David Tua. The championship would be just a matter of time for him.

What a waste of talent.

Just for being a cool guy. That's all. - BennyST 
Default

The first name that came to mind was Bojado, since he seemed to have the speed, the combinations, but also the movement. he had a decent chin, but his movement is what got me thinking that this guy was going to be either king at 140 or close to it. I remember thinking when he won his title that if he knocked out leija, he would get a shot at Vivian Harris, and then fight either cotto or mayweather or someone like that down the road. I actually gave him a good shot at beating any of those guys at 140 (gatti, mayweather, harris, hatton, cotto).

Regardless, someone brought up Gonzalez, that guy was lucky enough to have a casino behind him, basically they backed him through the idea that he would become champion and be their main attraction, but like someone mentioned, he caught a few exposals and was basically finished from there.
