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

I think it's a very fine line here...there is no truly definitive answer.Styles would make the fights. Monzon, Hagler, Greb, Robinson, Burley, and some more deserve mention...Fitz makes a case too...I don't think anyone at 160 could physically overpower Fitz. Greb's record speaks absolute volumes! Robinson while not on the same plain of consistency at the weight, on a given night at his best, could be the best. Monzon as stated so many times, fought so well to his strengths...Burley shows on film a rare defensive ability to totally shut down one of the better punchers at light heavyweight in that era, in Oakland Billy Smith...Everyone's own eyes will tell them Roy Jones Jr is a marvel...At the weight.. who knows? Maybe Sam Langford kicks everybody's ass...Too tough to say...
