WBC Benavidez

WBO Ramirez
I presume you have never actually seen Benavidez or Truax fight? Ffs.
Yes they'd still do Groves.

Ramirez would fuck him up

I really don't see either of them beating Groves tbh.

Would not really be certain on Ramirez beating him either.

A really weak division in general though.

Hagler, Hearns, Leonard, Benn, Watson, Ewbank. Even Minter and Calzage. Then also Hopkins and Roy Jones.

Must be many more I can't think of right now

Remember the toney v nunnery fight.
Nunney ended up doing life if memory serves.
Roland was made out of granite.
Who can forget Julian Jacksons Ko of bomber Graham? To this day the most devastating knockout I've ever seen.

The first time Graham was hit if I remember rightly, was the master of evading

I thought at the time Jackson had killed him.

I'drate Sibson higher that Minter, Sibson fucking destroyed him when they fought

Can't remember exactly but subbing went at it with Hagler for four or five rounds I'm sure.

when Hatton went to fight Mayweather, I said at the time it would be a repeat of Hagler vs Sibson, got laughed at in the local at the time, post fight was a bit different. Mayweather did not smash Hatton up as bad as Hagler smashed Sibson, but it was very similar.

Lost two fights in a row, then went on to smash the fuck out of everyone, took on all the big names at the time and was cheated by Sugar Ray

The Leonard decision remains the biggest disgrace in boxing.
Hagler so disgusted he never fought again.
