Who was Benny Lynch?

Benny Lynch was a Scottish professional boxer who fought in the flyweight division. He is considered by some to be one of the finest boxers below the lightweight division in his era and often been described him as the greatest fighter that Scotland has ever produced. The Ring Magazine founder Nat Fleischer rated Lynch as the #5 flyweight of all-time while his publication placed him 63rd in its 2002 list of the "Best Fighters of the Last 80 Years". Like Fleischer, both Statistical boxing website BoxRec and the International Boxing Research Organization also rank Lynch as the 5th greatest flyweight ever. He was elected to the Ring Magazine Hall of Fame in 1986 and the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1998.
