Both ideally! They all fought other great fighters as well. I find Charley Burley very interesting and Greb was just a machine, a middleweight fighting heavyweights?, but they were all great in their own way.
There are obviously many others - these were the ones that came to mind who were before my time.
I was just curious about who others would have.

Another is Jock McAvoy. There’s a pretty good biography available from Amazon but not much film of his fights.

Very good list indeed.

Personally I always wished I’d seen more of the British fighter from the seventies, the guys like Kaylor and Christie who were the reason I started fighting.

These days we are spoilt as fans and can pretty much see every fighter.
