the Ribble fight/non fight is the worst of the bunch. fotiu didn't need any of the shadow boxing routine to beat him. i remember that THN article ferguson wrote about the top-10 for that year and he called fotiu out for it. funny stuff coming from a legendary policeman.
Do not know why I think this but I could swear that Gillies (probably from living in the shadow of MSG and all the media attention Fotiu receivd) employed Fotiu's flailing/shadow box approach with his second fight with Wilson.
