Surprisingly very few have mentioned Benny Leonard considering his career.

Robinson is still the greatest overall with Ali and Jack Johnson close behind. Nice to see that Langford and Fitz are mentioned in this thread as well.

They will always be interchangeable at #1 and #2.

Right now, though, I have Robinson at #1.

I voted Greb, but equally have said Robinson or other...

No Joe Louis?

but I don't typically rate fighters like this, too many variables and more importantly too many greats, far to many!

as I've said a million times Top men are Top men and there were hundreds of them over more than a hundred years of boxings!!!

-- Defends Welterweight title.

So in just a little over a year, Armstrong wipes out Pete Sarron (the only KO loss of his entire career) in taking his Featherweight Crown, runs through numerous highly rated featherweight-lightweight contenders including an undefeated Beauhold, KO's Chalky Wright, batters ATG Barney Ross (1 defeat in the previous seven years to McLarnin, avenged) with a weight disadvantage in one of the ten greatest wins in boxing history, taking his Welterweight Crown in what would've been the only stoppage loss of his career had Armstrong not eased late, wins a absolute war with ATG Lou Ambers in taking his Lightweight Crown that had Henry swallowing his own blood over the last several frames to avoid a stoppage, then turns around and defends the Welter title against No. 1 contender Ceferino Garcia.

That's a ****ing Joke. And only encompasses a portion of what was a COLOSSAL Peak in the history of the sport.

It never fails to boggle my mind, no matter how many times I go back and look at what Armstrong did over that sequence. It's not just the titles and numerous top notch fighters in between, but who he won them from as well. It's not right.
