Default Greatest Boxers never to fight in the US

When talking about the greatest ever boxers it's hard not to show bias for American fighters, or fighters who have campaigned in the States at some point. Even if, like me, you are not American it is hard to escape this bias.

But not all great boxers have fought in the USA. Who do you think is the greatest boxer never to fight in the US?

The first name that springs to my mind is Nico Locche

Laszlo Papp never fought in the US. Neither did Jimmy Carruthers

If AM's count, then Teofilo Stevenson should be mentioned.

Dariusz Michalczeswki would be another one. Probably some very good Asian fighters fit here too. I was surprised that Fighting Harada didn't though.

So was I! I was just about to mention him, but thought I'd check BoxRec just to make sure - and was surprised to find, that he actually boxed in the US once!

I guess McGoorty doesn't use this forum any more or the name Les Darcy would have been brought up already
