The question posed is best fighter P4P J. Did I include Jack Dempsey as my top six .??? No. So why chastise me ? I included Greb, Robinson, Benny Leonard [Robby's equal as a LW], Langford, Armstrong,and ole Fitz...
P4P a heavyweight as 215 pound Ali was, wasn't as good all around as a Sugar Ray Leonard ,who could do as a WW more than Ali because of his "sharper"
punching...If Clay/Ali was not charismatic as he was, he wouldn't be called
"the greatest HWT of alltime" IMO. A chap named Joe Louis has that distinction...Louis eviscerated his division for 12 years,leaving his opponents prone on the canvas...Ali did not do this, though Ali had better
opposition...Cheers...
