Greb was a much greater lhw and p4p fighter than both Hagler and monzon. But within the mw division he didnt achieve as much and arguably has an inferior resume.
Inferior resume as a MW.? Tell me luf who did Monzon or Hagler beat as a MW that was as good as a Mike Gibbons, or the prime Mickey Walker when Harry Greb was old and 1 year from retiring ? The Mickey Walker that utterly destroyed Tommy Milligan in London was as good if not better H2H than Monzon or Hagler...And soon after tough Mickey went after heavyweights with great success such as Paolino Uzcudun, Johnny Risko, Jack Sharkey,230 pound Bearcat Wright, Maxie Rosenbloom, powerful Paul Berlenbach etc. And you ask who Greb beat as a MW ?
