Fixed.

On that note though, Gomez allegedly talked a lot of shit and oozed arrogance once that fight was made and all throughout the build-up to it. He got what was coming to him, though he did fight like a champion. Sal took his bombs without even changing his facial expression

I like the side caption of the Saddler-Lopez fantasy fight, again pointing to how he was thought of during his time. One of the most popular fighters of his day as well.

Top 3 for me with an asterisk because his career got cut short and I firmly believe his greatest accomplishments were ahead of him.

Beautiful thread mate.
I'm using phone right now but I'll PM you tonight and sorry I couldn't get back on that rumour about the 52yo the other day but never had laptop so PM's are murder to do on phone.
I've never doubted that Chava would've been your greatest compatriot had he not been taken from us.
Some guy from Maryland who was allegedly an OK fighter( probably an overrated bum) said of Chava:"Amazing.So gifted, so skilled.Probably my #3,4 or 5 if I was forced" and I also heard him say in an interview that Chava had all the fundamentals down to a tee and was like a perfect boxer.
Then again,what would he know?

Excellent post NWS.

Even if you don't have him in your top 5, he can't be too far behind, amazing considering he died so young. I'd have to say he was the most fluid boxer I've ever seen, everything was so natural, the way he stood in front of Gomez firing counters while not even being tagged was a thing of beauty. Even tho I'm a fan of Gomez he was a punk and it was nice to see him get whooped lol.

For me:
Pep
Armstrong
Saddler
Saldivar
Sanchez

although in fairness a majority rates Sanchez above Saldivar.

Here is the results frm classic forums results and a link to that discussion.

1. 547 Willie Pep (13)
2. 442 Henry Armstrong (6)
3. 399 Sandy Saddler(4)
4. 314 Salvador Sanchez (5)
5. 129 Abe Attell (1)
6. 115 Jim Driscoll
7. 109 Alexis Arguello
8. 88 Vincente Saldivar
9. 67 Manny Pacquiao (1)
10. 61 George Dixon
11. 59 Terry McGovern
12. 56 Kid Chocolate
13. 47 Eusebio Pedroza
14. 46 Azumah Nelson
15. 18 Marco Antonio Barrera
16. 12 Danny Lopez
17. 9 Ernesto Marcel
18. 8 Battling Battalino
19. 6 Erik Morales
20. 5 Young Griffo
21. 3 Jeff Fenech
22. 2 [tie] Young Corbett II
22. 2 [tie] Tom Johnson
22. 2 [tie] Johnny Dundee
25. 1 [tie] Alberto Baby Arizmendi
25. 1 [tie] Davey Moore
25. 1 [tie] Freddie Miller
25. 1 [tie] Prince Naseem Hamed

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Someone mentioned Pedroza as top 5???? Perhaps top 15, hard to argue him into the top 10 let alone top 5.
That would be Mr. Drew101.

I think he'd cut my top ten without much problem.
