When Does A Fighter Realize He Is A “LOSER?”

By: Ken Hissner

In keeping what this writer calls the 100 Club with boxers having over 100 losses there are other category’s that stick out. Let me explain if I can.

Reggie Strickland of the US has more losses than any other boxer in the history of the sport. His final record was 66-276-17 stopped 25 times. There is an active boxer named Kristian “Mr. Reliable” Laight of the UK who is 12-275-9 stopped 5 times. His nickname “Mr. Reliable” must mean he is “reliable to lose!” Behind him active is Jason Nesbitt of the UK at 10-198-4 stopped 20 times and inactive in 2017.

Then there are boxers who have “never” won a fight and some still boxing to this day who haven’t won a fight. The leader if I can use that word is a Russian Bheki Moyo who fought out of the UK where it seems they don’t care what your record is. His record when he retired was 0-73-2. An active boxer without a win is UK’s Chris Gargano, 0-51, only stopped 7 times.

If one win makes you “not” a loser than the king of that is Jose Amaral of Brazil who is still active with a 1-69 record stopped 41 times. Cristian Nicolae of Romania retired with a 2-76 record stopped 16 times. Still active is Kuwait’s Anwar Alfadli of course fighting out of the UK who is 2-76 but only stopped 5 times.

Retired is Joselito del Rosario of the Dominican Republic who was 3-73 stopped 35 times. Still active is Andy Harris of the UK at 3-59-1 stopped 12 times. Qasim Hussain of the UK is 4-79-2 and still active only stopped 1 time.

Speaking of the UK there is Liam Griffiths 5-78-1 still active. Also still active from CZ is Josef Holub 5-97-1 stopped 53 times. Another from CZ still active is Rudolf Murko 3-86-2 stopped 46 times. Dave Hinds of the UK called it quits at 7-77.

How many boxers can never admit “I’m a loser?”

The UK’s 36 year old Kristian Laight is now 12-248-8 but only stopped 5 times. He is third on this writers 100 Club losers list in total defeats only behind Reggie Strickland 66-276-17 and Peter Buckley 32-256-12 but both are retired. Matt Seawright of the UK is 5-146-5 stopped 22 times and still fighting.

Matt Scriven of the UK is 14-91-1 stopped 20 times. Dan Carr of the UK is 3-85-2 but only stopped once. Kalman Vagyocki of Hungary has a “perfect record” of 0-45 stopped 34 times. Then there is Marius Sorin of Romania 0-42-2 stopped 27 times.

How about Dmitrijs Avsijenkovs of Latvia who is 0-29 stopped all 29 times? Petr Jasukievic of CZ is 0-27 stopped 25 times. The Dominican Republic is known for some really losing boxers like Dionisio Rodriguez 0-42 stopped 29 times. Alexis Castillo 0-35 stopped 31 times. Miguel Tavarez 0-32 stopped 25 times. Gregory Esteves 0-34 stopped 18 times. Jose Guzman 0-28 stopped 22 times. Jose Ramon Tejada 0-19 stopped all 19 times and Junior Rodriguez 0-19 but “only” stopped 12 times. Juan Ramon Santos is 0-18 stopped 17 times. Marcos Martinez is 0-18 stopped 15 times. Zuleidiy Diaz Meja 0-18 stopped 17 times. Modesto Felix 0-18-2 stopped 11 times.

Poland has Slawomir Latopolski 0-18 stopped 17 times. Ukraine has Vitaliy Charkin 0-18 stopped 16 times who fought this past weekend. Also fighting this past weekend was Milan Ruso of CZ 1-46 stopped 41 times.

Jose Amaral of Brazil 1-69 stopped 41 times. Lajos Orsos of Hungary 1-54-2 stopped 21 times. Cristian Nicolae of Romania 2-76 stopped 16 times finally retired. Rudolf Murko of CZ is 3-80-2 stopped 40 times. Qasim Hussain of the UK is 4-76-2 but only stopped once. Moses Matovu of the UK from UG is 5-64-4 stopped 7 times. Stefan Stanko of Slovokia is 6-67-1 stopped 59 times. Dan Blackwell of the UK is 7-63 but only stopped once.
Looking at a boxer from Mexico that seems to win “every other fight” you have Roberto Valenzuela 69-75-2 stopped 40 times.

Other active boxers who qualified for the 100+ loss club are Kevin McCauley a Hungarian out of CZ 13-142-11 stopped 11 times. Ibar Rivas an Albanian out of the UK is 34-119-4 only stopped 3 times. Jozef Kubovaky of Slovokia is 13-109-14 stopped 36 times. William Warburton of the UK is 23-114-9 stopped only 3 times. Elemir Rafael also from Slovokia is 34-106-4 stopped 34 times. Finally Yousef Al Hamidi of the UK 14-109-3 stopped only 3 times.

The bottom line is “when will a losing record boxer know when it’s time to retire?” How about the commissions in the UK and DR?
