Disclaimer: I don't claim to be an expert whatsoever, and as I learn more about boxing I'd most likely change this in the future. ALSO, this didn't take me that long so I might realise certain things and want to change up. Here goes:

My PERSONAL top 50:
SRR
Ali
Armstrong
Louis
Duran
Tunney
Greb (if brought up in the same generation as Monzon, he'd lose)
Benny Leonard
Johnson
Langford
Gans
Pep
Leonard
Moore
Walker (probably the most interesting resume, especially the weight lol)
Monzon
McLarnin
Ross
Canzoneri
Ambers (unsure but hey)
Hagler
Napoles
Wilde (I don't actually know much about him tbh)
Holmes
Dempsey (yes, that's right).
Saddler
Marciano
Sanchez
Foreman
Hearns
Chavez
Frazier
De La Hoya
McGovern
Cerdan
Lewis
Ted Kid Lewis
Holyfield
Spinks
LaMotta
Jones Jr
Hopkins
Griffith
Mayweather (I have Mayweather beating Hearns and Benitez. Duran vs Mayweather and Leonard vs Mayweather will be a very tough one to call - although I have him lower than some of the 90's-2000's stars of all weight divisions, I have him as the best fighter of the generation. I am sure he'd beat Pacquiao, Barrera, Morales, Tszyu, Hamed, Ayala, Whitaker you name them. I'm not completely sure if he can beat Napoles although I'm more inclined to say he can, it would be a dream matchup). Obviously because of natural progression in the sport, I have Mayweather beating someone like Benny Leonard too, but obviously Benny is 'greater' p4p. Another reason why I say this because sparring sessions and the way they fought back then seemed a little inferior. I'm probably stating the obvious here Having said that, I have prime Robinson beating Mayweather).
Conn
Whitaker
Pacquiao (Pacquiao has a better legacy than Mayweather but still...)
Arguello
Cervantes (maybe, maybe not. Huge fan of the guy).


Don't know enough about Kid Galivan, Eder Jofre or Fighting Harada.
I just checked the time: It's time for you to go read up on Greb, my man. He's the God of War. His first name was really Mars. Mars Greb.
