The idea of Monzon or Hagler being greater than Greb, seems incomprehensible!
J, I feel the same way. Frustrated... Taking the records of a Carlos Monzon and Marvin Hagler, truly not any better than a Freddie Steele for example and without rhyme or reason choosing without hesitation these two fine middleweights over the surreal career of Harry Greb who accomplished 3 times greater deeds in a 300 bout career ,beating everyone, everywhere
anytime tells me to fold my cards as their choices are based on personal likes and not onwhat they accompished...I would burn my record books but they were lost in Hurricane Sandy...Oh well !
