This writer has conducted a 100 Loss Non-Winning Record Club for some time now. Not only does it include boxers with over 100 losses but boxers with no wins and as many as 75 fights in one case. I will go over some of the boxers whose records standout.
At the top of the list of most losses is the UK’s Kristian “Mr. Reliable” Laight 12-279-9 with only being stopped 5 times. In 300 bouts he only fought 8 opponents with a losing record. His last bout was July of 2018. UK’s Peter ‘Professor’ Buckley, 32-256-12, stopped 10 times in 300 bouts.
The current boxer with the most losses is the UK’s Kevin McCauley, 15-209-12 with being stopped only 14 times. He only faced 1 opponent with a losing record. His last bout was in December 2020.
There are 52 boxers who have had over 100 losses in their careers. 12 of them are still active. Of the 12 there are 8 from the UK. “Smokin” Ibar Riyaz, 6-180-4 is currently the sixth boxer with the most losses, second only to McCauley among active boxers and has only been stopped 4 times.
Pertaining to the United States was the number 2 with the most losses in Reggie Strickland, 66-276-17 with 25 stoppages. His half-brother was Jerry Strickland, 13-122, with 78 stoppages. There have been 11 boxers from the US with over 100 losses. Still active are Nathan “The Heat” Petty, 1-40-1, with 14 stoppages. Anthony Woods, 1-31-1, stopped 22 times. Anthony Hill, 1-28, stopped 4 times.
The boxer with the most bouts having never won a bout is Bheki ‘Becks-Tiger” Moyo, 0-73-2, of Zimbabwe who fought out of the UK. He was only stopped 6 times. Others who are active without any wins are Ireland’s Alec Bazza, 0-47-3, UK’s Scott Hillman, 0-47 and Romania’s Marius Sorin, 0-47-2.
Some of the other boxers with very bad records are Brazil’s Jose Amaral, 1-68, stopped 40 times. Currently active is Czech’s Milan Ruso, 1-58, stopped 53 times. Colombia’s Francisco Herrera, 1-50-2, stopped 46 times. UK’s Joe ‘Busy-Bee’ Beeden, 2-76-1, stopped 5 times. Italy’s fighting out of the UK is Victor Edagha, 2-71-3, stopped only 3 times.
UK’s Andy “Thunder” Harris, 3-73-1, stopped 13 times. Dominican Jose “El Cuelbo” Vidal Sanchez, 4-56, stopped 37 times. UK’s Darryl Sharp, 5-72-1, only stopped 1 time. UK’s Michael ‘Mad Man’ Mooney, 9-75-2, stopped 7 times.
Others are like Romania’s Cristian Niculae, 2-79, stopped 16 times. Dominican Joselito “La Navaja” del Rosario, 3-73, stopped 35 times. From the US John ‘JJ’ Basil Jackson, 4-75-2, stopped 13 times. Brazil’s fighting out of Italy was Josia Malquidesda Silva, 5-74-5, stopped 7 times. UK’s David Hinds, 7-78, stopped 17 times. From the US James Mullins, 8-70-2, stopped 40 times.
As you can see these “record builders” have or are very active and are making a good bit of money. The US doesn’t have many while the UK has the most. The worst part is they mostly fight opponents with winning records in order to build up their records.
