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

you can never just solely look at the weight when a multi-divisional fighter moved through the divisions. Len Harvey for example fought from FLYweight to HW, you'd be kind of silly to call Len anything below MW, and likewise you can't rightfully call him a HW either - Harvey was a TRUE L-HW.

so was Fitz, RJJ too, Toney was a MW/S-MW and so the story goes for ALL fighters.

YES Greb gets KUDO's for everything above MW, because thats what he truly was, doesn't matter about him fighting above 160 in catchweight contest before he 'actually' becomes a L-HW, because MW is no longer possible to meet. Again the same is true for all fighters and they should only be ranked at their true best weight, anything above only adds to their ability and/or greatness!
