Gomez, Trinidad, Ortiz, Benitez.

No order. Not sure whom the 5th is. Maybe Dejesus or Rosario.

Camacho could've been #1 if he weren't such a waste of talent. He did a lot of good things, but still......should've done way more.

Ortiz just about beat everyone he lost to in the ring. Of his 7 losses he was able to have wins over 4 of them in his prime. The 2 others was at the end of his career and he lost twice to one opponent.
