Default Re: Greatest every in each weight class.

Based Purely on Legacy that will last 100 years or more into the future.

Heavyweight: Joe Louis

Light Heavyweight: Ezzard Charles (Very tough Call with Tunney, Langford, Fitzsimmons and even Spinks as legitimate calls as well as many others)

Middleweight: Bob Fitzsimmons (His credentials are simply unmatched at the weight, imo)

Welterweight: Ray Robinson

Lightweight: Benny Leonard

Featherweight: Willie Pep

Bantamweight: Panama Al Brown (I will give it to the longevity of Brown, but the Flash of McGovern and undefeated streak of Jimmy Barry could easily change the tune.

flyweight: Jimmy Wilde (i Know the arguments about quality of opponents, but his legacy seems to be comfortably the best flyweight).
