Re: Bert Sugar's 100 Greatest Fighters(What Do You Think?)
There's absolutley no concievable reason to have McLarnin ranked below Foreman. His win resume at WW alone is better than Foreman's entire HW resume. Holmes above McLarnin p4p? Impossible. I disagree strongly on Hagler, too, though at least there is a case there.
Purely and entirely based upon who he beat in terms of quality, there are only a handful of men who should be above McLarnin. There are other factors to consider for sure, but in terms of who he beat, McLarnin is top 20.
