Does he? Why, because he's not American? He certainly rates ahead of Saddler pound-for-pound for a start.

Maybe because I was only 3 years old.

Maybe because you're not American.

Well no one knows for sure if and when Jesus was alive, let alone boxed!

I was thinking Pep stood out the most there.

Top 10 of all-time P4P is a big thing to be. I'm a diehard Duran-fan, and I feel that's where he belongs.

#1? No. No matter how much we enjoy his fights, his abilities and his fighting spirit, he was simply not that talented. And that's okay.

Im a big believer in that to be no 1 you have to have wins/great performances against atgs....Duran from lightweight to welter did have some great performances and p4p ranks possibly with best ever in this phase of his career....Those performances after these are just confirmation of his greatness at silly weights and after his peak....Its a shame he didnt have greater comp at lightweight,but beating ray,de jesus and palamino shows he could beat hall of famers...There are soo many great fighters through boxing history,i dont think there is any clear number one,so yes a case could be made that roberto is no 1 p4p,but a case could alos be made for several other fighters as well....
I dont fall for the 'robinson is automatic and definate no 1 p4p'...

"Caesar" became the usual way to refer to the Roman Emperor beginning with Augustus, who was his adopted son. "Augustus was called "Caesar" Augustus. It remained a title indicating power for most of the Roman Era.

Augustus died before Jesus. Tiberius ("Tiberius Caesar Augustus") was emperor during the crucifixion.
