Zapata was a brilliant pure boxer.

How in the heck did Zapata get knocked out that time back in '82? That really surprised me when it happened.:|

I would add in top 15 Young Joe Walcot, the Lion of Colon as well as Jose Lombardo, who fought in the same era.

Wish I knew more about the tragic Bearcat Reid -- I have a record for him not yet posted on Boxrec.

Nice list. I hate to admit that I don't know all of those boxers, but here are some Panamanian fighters:

Guillermo Jones: Just knocked out Wayne Braithewaite, who was having trouble adjusting to the new 200-pound limit of the cruiserweight division.

Rodolfo Aguilar: I remember him from the Inglewood Forum tournament.

Santiago Samaniego: Held the WBA Interim title at 154 recently.

Alfonso Mosquera: The great-grandfather of the jr. middleweight division!

Vicente Mosquera: Saw his upset on the undercard of Toney-Ruiz.

Celestino Caballero: Another good current Panamanian.

Ernesto Marcel deserves to be in the IBHOF.
