Please do, because Barrera was in his prime at 122 and 126. Lightweight limit is 135. He fought at 130 and had a good performance against Morales (III) I think, other than that, I don't know. Anything above that is a joke.

No way Duran should be considered one of the hardest punchers at 135. You have Lew Jenkins, Rosario, and Williams (I believe definitely hit harder than Duran).

At HW, I'd say the usual suspects: Foreman, Shavers, Cleveland Williams, Liston, and Tyson.

WW: Hearns, Cuevas, Robinson, and Trinidad (arguable, I know).
