Re: Who is greater? Willie Pep or Benny Leonard?
I have Duran above Pep for sure. His P4P achievements are unreal. And he picked up quite a few quality scalps as well as a couple of truly astounding wins. No one can have any issue with Duran being ranked higher than Pep (and probably vice versa)
Pep gets massive credit for getting anywhere near 'clubfighter' after the crash so he gets insane kudos (and some slack) for reaching the highs he did despite his spottier looking record. Great fighter.
Really trying to split these guys it's 'what d'ya like'? But I'm very comfortable with Duran>Pep. I can take Ross>Pep as well.
