Can you name fighters whose records do not tell the full story?

 

I’ll start with Kirino Garcia (40-28-4) who is a tough Mexican battler who worked his way up to No.4 in the ratings after starting his career with a 0-18 run. Learning on the job, he then went on a long winning streak beating such men as Rene Herrera, Norberto Bueno, Jorge Vaca (twice), Art Serwano, Meldrick Taylor, Simon Brown, and Terrence Alii. He also waxed Buck Smith (179-14-2 at the time) and stopped Frankie Randall (55-7). Many observers, including me, though he beat David Reid in 2000. 

Among those who beat him were Chad Parker, Lonnie Beasley, Tim Littles, Paul Vaden, and Kingsley Ikeke—and Steve Roberts in London and Danny Green in Australia.

 

Kirino has shown what boxing can do to lift a man from the bottom to a point where he can now make life choices of his own volition. He is the current Mexico light heavyweight title holder and enjoys legendary status in Ciudad Juarez where he has duked over 40 times. He likely will retire soon, but he is one very tough hombre.

 

Clearly, his record doesn’t even begin to tell the whole story. Of course this can go in the other direction as well , where a fighter may have agreat record, but it doesn't really tell the real story.

Can you root out a few of these.?
