True. In that jostling of super-greats, Ray is worthy of consideration.

McFarland perhaps lost his title shot by managing only a draw in the second Welsh fight.

McLarnin beat great men, but smaller men. He was 1 for 3 against a fellow great his size in Ross.

Not many revered greats have Ray's credentials, even with twice as many fights.
