A good portion of them would be the black fighters who due to laws were not allowed to fight white fighters. Sam Langford, Joe Jeanette, Peter Jackson to name a few. Holman Williams definitely one of the best MW not to hold a title and more recently Juan Domingo Roldan who gave both Hagler and Hearns tough fights


There are also many fighters who i thought were great but were champs for very brief moments as Juan La Porte who fought during a very rich FW era with guys like Nelson, Sanchez, and Danny Red Lopez. Luis Manuel Rodriguez was Champ also very briefly guys like Griffith and Benvenuti prevented him from having a greater legacy but he did have over 100 wins.

Alot of people forget just how good jerry quarry was back in the day he beat the big punching unbeaten at the time mac foster, stopped a prime earnie shavers in a round, also give the big punching ron lyle his first defeat and had wins over buster mathis and floyd patterson. He was just around at the wrong time and couldnt beat all time greats ali and fraizer

Some marquee names not being brought up here...

Young Stribling
Lew Tendler
Jack Blackburn
Joe Choynski

All those guys fought and won at the world class level in at least 3 full weight divisions (before the junior divisions). And what Young Stibling did makes Pac's move up in weight look trivial.

I'm not making a list tho...too hard.

More good names there, Young Stribling for sure deserves to be top 10.
To my mind, Sam Langford, Charley Burley, Jimmy Bivins, Young Stribling and Packy McFarland are nailed on top ten then its take your pick.

I will obviously put forward Joe Baksi after the initial rush
