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

I think that you have to make some allowance for accomplishments above 160lbs, while a fighter is still able to make the middleweight limit, otherwise you are producing a very warped view of greatness.
Ill allow a couple of pounds above for non title fights buy grebs work as a lhw should have no impact on his greatness as a mw.

Otherwise it is like saying Jones victory over Ruiz should help his lhw greatness.
