Who would you put over those guys? Of for that matter what about some recent guys like: Twist, McCarthy, John Kordic, Laraque, Simon, Domi, Grimson, McKenzie, even Ray or older guys like Holmgren, O'Reilly, Richter, McIharcey, Glen Cochrane, or Plett.
All the guys mentioned you could make the argument are top 10 worthy. There is no way Brash is top 10 or 5. Sorry.
Probert and Brown are show in's on the list.
I would very easily place Brashear ahead of Wensink, Jonanthan, Nystrom.
I would place him ahead of any guy that fought infrequently.
Would Gillies qualify as a guy that fought on 'his terms'. Seems to me he would be the poster child for fighting on 'his terms'. No one has any hesitation placing him Top 10 (mostly Top 5). (This is not necessarily directed at the quote I am replaying to, rather to whomever brought up they could not place him Top 10 for this reason).
