Re: Willie Pep - would his fans please justify his placement in their top all time lists
I can't see anyone receiving much credibilty who says that Willie Pep isn't a top ten featherweight. The guy was undefeated through his first 62 fights, and retired with about 220 something wins, with only about 11 losses. What's more he once defeated Sandy Sadler, who some say may quite possibly be THEE greatest feather in history. To say that Pep isn't a top ten guy, is about the same as claiming that Joe Louis isn't a top ten heavyweight, or that Robinson wasn't a top ten middleweight.
It's a rather ****py argument if you ask me.
