Who else can the argument be made for to fit into this utmost top echelon. Armstrong comes to mind but a relatively short prime hinders him just enough. Ali certainly has a case. Duran has a case in my mind but again comes up just short. I don't think the dust has settled enough on the fighter of the past 20 or 30 years to properly place them but I suspect none qualify to threaten anyone in this group.



Thoughts?
It's a great list ...

Langford to me is tops on any
Greb
Robinson
Fitz
Charles
Gans
Johnson
Ali
Louis
Leonard
