Cochrane top ten??? No way imo. Besides Nystrom(and many call that a draw), what were his best wins? Delorme, Nilan,? Not to mention, no real ko's due to lack of punching power.

Richter's card is far too light imo, to me he's like Battleship Kelly with his card.

And Nilan was maybe a 500 fighter-warrior yes, but not a top 20 guy.

also, just curious where do many here perhaps the best enforcer ever(not fighter), Dave Schultz?He has to be a top 25 guy with his card and wins-and yes losses too I know.

The list is my opinion...as is everyone else's on this long thread.

I hated both Cochrane & Richter. They lacked a big fight card. I could say the same about Fotiu, Gillies, and even Behn Wilson, when you compare their cards to Probert, Domi, Brown, Mcsorely or even Grimson.

However you can't take away the fact that both Cochrane and Richter, rarely lost fights and they both fought damn well.

In comparison, yes I think they were better fighters than Mccarthy, arguably better fighters than Simon.

The big omission on my list was Playfair. Although he wasn't the same fighter in the late 70's early 80's when I began watching he should have made my top 10. Definately within the top 7 of all time.

But Mccarthy had a 1-3 yr run tops with the Flames lost a lot of weight and was a shell of himself with NYR & Boston. Same with Simon. Good fighter 1-3 yr run, then bounced around the league getting suspended for foolish follies rather than fistic prowness.

So yes, I would add Playfair, and in terms of won-loss record, and being feared, yeah Cochrane & Richter make my list.

RE: Cochrane's best wins

Marini 3X - At least one was a TKO
Bloodied and dominated Weir
Ovewelmed McClelland
Came back and pounded Brubaker in 84-85 after Brubaker got the jump on him.
Delorme 2X - I'd score one of those a TKO
Pounded Hillier

I think he did well against Kennedy too

good showings against Nystrom and Nilan

He TKO'd both Bomber and Brubaker when he was with the Canucks.

Which heavyweights did Richter beat? He loved to pick on the smaller guys.

No Simon or McCarthy?



The way I look at the top ten, is who has the most wins over top 10 guys? Cochrane has just as many as alot on that list with his fights against Kocur and Probert. I don't have him top 10, but I really can't argue against it. I def take Cochrane over Simon. McCarthy would be a little closer.

Having Tocchet in the top 20 is crazy. Yet having Mel Bridgman in the top 5 is crazier, so if that ranking is kosher without criticism, then I cant say too much about Tocchet. LOL

Did someone unleash the beast?
If I wasn't so tired from snowplowing for 3 days I'd chop this topic up.

Ok , it's official I'm "woken up"....
