Henry Wharton was a major player in the great super-middleweight scene of the 1990s -- fortunate (and unfortunate) enough to have had contested World Titles with British legends Nigel Benn and Chris Eubank. Wharton, with his famed left-hook, was a tough night's work for anyone.

In his last swing at the top, Wharton was out-smarted by Robin Reid over the distance. Despite two subsequent wins, Wharton remains a warmly-remembered slugger who never quite scaled the mountain.
