Always nice to hear baritones.
How about Leonard Warren ?

Well, I'm not specifically into the "rich & fat" type of baritone voice. But if only such baritones (instead of "noble & slender") are required, what about the following (apart from Herlea, Ruffo and Bechi, on whose qualities I concur)? In alphabetical order:
- Richard Bonelli, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eg8Vrj6lwn4
- Davit Gamrekeli, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDIWihwy7Bw
- Andrej Ivanov, http://www.sovmusic.ru/download.php?fname=vozlesad, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXT7ZYc1Pes
- Josef Metternich, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1WzfAVbKZ0

Not sure what a fat voice is. However, in terms of rich toned baritones here is one. Ettore Bastianini
.

The bass baritone tendency can be heard in this voice particularly at the beginning which I think contributed to a very rich tone. Maybe fat?

Quite a magnificent voice cut off much too early.

Giorgio Zancanaro, last of the great Italian baritones.

In my mind the greatest dramatic(darkest, 'fattest', most powerful) baritone was Leonard Warren. He had an enormous range and could modulate that voice to produce the sweetest pianissimos. His opera performances were legendary and his recitals masterful.
