Default Re: Greatest Middleweight once and for all- Greb? Monzon? Hagler?

In fantasy fights there is no sure way we can ever know who would beat who, but I still maintain that what Harry Greb accomplished in a 300 fight career,ABLE to whip LHs as well as Hwts, such as Gene Tunney, Tommy Gibbons, Jack Dillon, Tommy Loughran,Billy Miske, Kid Norfolk, Gunboat Smith, Maxie Rosenbloom,Bill Brennan,[ 4 times without losing nary a round],also beating MWs Mike Gibbons, Tiger Flowers, Southpaws Johnny Wilson, Tiger Flowers, and the truly great Toy Bulldog Mickey Walker, maybe his greatest feat in 1925, when Greb with about 290 bouts, creaking with overuse and having to lose pounds , ran around Central Park TWICE in a steamy July sun, the same afternoon with only orange punch to sip, came into the ring at 158.05 and gave the prime Walker a lacing, finishing the 15th round stronger than Harry started the bout...With all this heroics on his record, which MW
can be rated above him truly ? Oh yes and for the last 5 years or so fighting with but ONE eye...Greb #1...
