I'm considering Lewis British, because that's where his allegiance was throughout his professional career.

Burns & Chuvalo are good choices. LaLonde getting stopped by a natural welterweight in his own weight class is incredibly damaging though.

I'd rate Tommy Burns either #1 or #2, toss up between him and Lewis. Tommy was a Heavyweight Champion that was at one time fighting world class fighters and winning as a Middleweight.
