I am devastated. To put McCallum up there and Griffith down there doesn't make sense to me but oh, well...

Benitez is nowhere near a top 10 welter IMO.

Is that what gets him in your top ten? What about failing to conclusively beat Bruce Curry twice?

McCallum still is underrated because his comp is also underrated. He's completely dominated his own Murderer's Row bar Kalambay, that being his only prime defeat.

Griffith achieved allot but McCallum probably decisively beats a few of the opponents Griffith struggled with.

His own Murderers Row?!?

Also, McGrain knows how much I bang the drum for McCallum. I'm not underrating him.

That doesn't mean Griffith should be underrated to even things out.

Griffith is genuinely my least favorite all time great to watch (for the most part), so I might not be the most level-headed when it comes to hypotheticals with him.

I think that Griffith would win. I just think he's better up close which is also where I think this fight would end up. I see him sniping and pulling his way to a decision that makes SS furious.
