Who were your favorite fighters who never really went that far?

  • CHB will be closing down as of 31st July 2021. It's been a brilliant experience to run the website for the past 9 years, however it's time for me to move onto different projects. Thanks to every single person involved, from staff, former staff, posters old and current. All support means more than anyone knows. Thanks for your understanding.

Carl "The Truth" Williams. Nice boxing ability. Very strong jab. Decent power. and a crappy chin. Correct the latter and he would have been champ for a minute.

Alekseyev - 6'2'' Russian southpaw @ 200lbs. Won the IBF to get beat in his first defence by Hernández. Smashed up by one of my favourite boxers of all time, Lebedev, in 2 during a WBO eliminator.

An Olympian and 2005 World Am Champion. Wasn't "shit", but you expected more.

Gamboa and Bobby Pacquiao.

dude, when Gamboa first hit the states after being free from Cuba, I really thought he was the chosen one.

Bobby Pacquiao was just another filipino guy that I liked even though he wasn’t even good.

Irving Mitchell and Jackie Beard, I thought would have at least been top 5 contenders. Still good fighters for there time. Also, Kirk Johnson.


R.I.P. Joe Rein

Vaguely recall that beating. Not unlike McCullough and Harrison. McCulloughs chin was otherworldly.
Wayne McCullough is the first fighter I mention when discussions of granite chin are in flow. You could not get him off of his feet. Super nice bloke too. Shame he never went further.

I think I just read I put this higher up the page. lol
