Default Re: Top five of the last forty years ?

If the five top fighters have all the skills plus were so huge that thier fights were more of "events" than fights. The list would have to be: 1. Muhammed Ali, 2. Roberto Duran 3. Sugar Ray Leonard. 4. Marvin hagler 5. Julio Cesar Chavez. Although there are fighters more skilled, these fighters transcended the sport & elevated boxing to another level with the huge stage inwhich they put boxing in. Fighter like Jones, Whitaker & Hearns all had tremendous talent but these five put on bouts that put boxing on the world stage.
