Default Hopkins Legacy:

Following his unaminous decision victory over Winky Wright last weekend, how does that affect your all-time placing of Hopkins at MW? (if at all...)

My current ATG rankings, based on a whole mix of factors (legacy, head-to-head, defences etc):

1. Hagler
2. Greb
3. Monzon
4. Hopkins
5. Robinson (Top 2 at WW)
6. Jones Jr
7. Ketchell
8. Cerdan
9. Griffith
10. Walker

That was tough, but there ya go. Incidently he stays at #4 on my list, though strengthens that standing.

I'm terrible at making lists, but the fight was not at middleweight, so what a guy does at light heavyweight has no bearing on his all-time middleweight standing.

My top five (in no order) at MW would probably be Greb, Hagler, Monzon, Robinson, and Hopkins. I dunno about the rest of the list and they're always subject to changes.

Roy's short stay @ 160 prevents him from being ranked that high, IMO.

Probably Armstrong.

They're top 2 at WW, even though Armstrong was usually officially a lightweight defending his WW title.
