    What do you guys think of these fighters? I've seen three of them fight (Antonio Margarito - almost took out Cotto; Zahir Raheem - he has great boxing skills and isn't afraid to throw punches; and Kingsley Ikeke - has good boxing skills to be so tall and lanky, his range is his biggest asset)...and they are worth a legitimate title shot.

    Who would be on your list of fighters who deserve a legitimate title shot?

    Emmanuel Augustus is one of the most talented fighters in boxing (definately one of the most talented that doesn't have a title); however, he hurts himself by constant clowning in the ring. He has been robbed out of a lot of decisions. But he also cost himself victories by clowning when he should be fighting. From what I hear that was the case in his last fight (just this past weekend). Augustus did get a title shot against Floyd Mayweather 6 years ago, and lost by TKO.

    Zahir Raheem is definately being ducked by the titleholders of the lightweight division. His only loss to Rocky Juarez I thought he got robbed, and he outright embarrassed Erik Morales. I think he could beat everyone in the lightweight division with the exception of Diego Corralles.

    Kingsley Ikeke is a talented fighter as well. I don't think he is being ducked quite yet. I see him getting a title shot within the next year.
