Some of your favorite fighters who never won championships
Any fighters who never won a world championship or were just good fighters that you really liked? Just for one reason or another, you took a liking to them & followed their career?
I always liked Bernardo Mercardo, Oscar Bonavena & Eddie "Animal" Lopez. I'm Italian, Polish & Czeck, not a latin, but for whatever reason, I liked these guys.
Met Mercardo at Larry Holmes training camp. He could bang!
Bonavena, I liked him from when I watched the fights with Frazier. Tough, rugged & what a character! I almost cried when he got shot & killed at Conforte's whore house.
Eddie Lopez impressed me when he fought Leon. He looked good against Tate also.
Mitch Green was another guy I really liked. Met him and he was pretty happy that someone showed an interest in him. We had three nice long talks over a 3 day period & he was nothing like he was when he was getting tazed on a street corner in NY by the police! Remember when he was being interviewed about Tyson & he flexed a bicep while at the same time saying that Tyson was a Ho-Mo! Pretty funny guy in his interviews.

Going off some of the answers thus far I presume we are not counting colored titles?

I would have liked to have said Frank Bruno but he lifted a belt off Oliver McCall.....So I'll say Herol Graham and Jesse Ferguson.
