Ross has the 3 weight classes, whoopedy doo, Mayweather has 5, does that make him better?

Overall resume of of Robinson: Basilio, Fullmer, Olson, Graziano, Turpin, Gavilan, LaMotta, Fusari, Cali Jackie Wilson, Doyle, Levine, Angott, Armstrong, Servo, Zivic, Shapiro, etc. Most of them MULTIPLE times.

Gimme Ross's and tell me why it surpasses it please. Thank you.
While I don't agree that Ross was better than Robinson, I don't agree with you thrashing his resume like this.

Mayweather's five titles were not undisputed. Ross' were.

Ross' ledger includes wins over Champions like Jimmy McLarnin, Canzi, Bat Battalino, Ceferino Garcia and titleholders like Sammy Fuller, Frankie Klick and Izzy Jannazzo as well as many tough rated contenders.
