Excellent work as usual. I've always liked eric probably more than any of the newer crop. Just took a shine to his style. Good, open two handed fighter who i always termed as "honest" (whatever that means
). Didn't win them all, probably because of his style but he never bored you. You're entirely right about mcgrattan and orr as well. Probably should throw Jody Shelley
in there too.
I recall he came into the league with a lot of fanfare somewhat like Scott Parker
or Matt Johnson
. I enjoyed his career throughout. Certainly a newer favorite.
I got to see a typical fight with John Erskine
live. Two big guys banging away with mean intentions until one (godard) connected and put a concussion on big john
