Default Re: Barney Ross is a top ten all-time great

Kid Gavilan is instantly impressive on film.
I'd rate him above Hearns, Leonard and Duran and welterweight. And if "fantasy match-ups" count for anything, I'd pick him to beat all three, matched peak for peak.

Barney Ross is worthy of the top 10 p4p of all-time, but I'd probably say that about another 20 or 30 great fighters too.
