Default The Greatest Puerto Rican Fighters

Top 10 greatest fighters from P.R

My list is:

#1. Wilfredo Gomez
#2. Felix Trinidad
#3. Carlos Ortiz
#4. Wilfred Benitez
#5. Esteban DeJesus
#6. Hector Camacho
#7. Pedro Montanez
#8. Cocoa Kid
#9. Jose Basora
#10. Edwin Rosario

Thought about putting either Escobar or Torres in, but feel this is a solid top 10.

Default Re: The Greatest Puerto Rican Fighters

I have Ortiz at #1 by a considerable margin. I have him #24 of all time with neither Gomez or Trinidad directly in my top 50.

Is there something that makes you rate them above him? His resume is well better than either fighter and is really one of the very best in LW history. As a fighter he was more consistent than Gomez, and more complete than Trinidad. I rate him #6 all time at LW, and he was a force at 140 as well. I mean, the guy beat 6 HOF'ers.
