Default Re: Besides Hagler/Lennox Lewis/Calzaghe/Marciano, who else retired at the perfect ti

Something left?

Walcott was the champion and Charles, Moore and Louis were the highest ranked opponents he could face.

criticism of who Rocky faced demonstrates a poor understanding of his era.

To answer the question though my top 5 list would be:

Marciano
Tunney
Lewis
Monzon
Lopez

There are others who retired at a good time for their career but never quite received the recognition they deserved during it so an argument could be made the retirement was bad (like packey for instance)
