terry norris 21-2

tommy hearns beat

murry sutherland 40-8-1
wilfred benitez 44-1-1
robert duran 77-5

i might could give you hearns based on opposition... but i wont .. because duran and benitez made there bread and butter at 135 and 140 ..

norris edges them both out in terms of all time status.. sorry buddy
I'm not talking about "greatest at the weight class" (most achievements), I'm talking about the best fighter there (ability wise, head-to-head)

Mike McCallum, Julian Jackson, and Thomas Hearns were all better at the weight, despite not staying there as long.

Jackson's win over Graham wasn't even at 154 anyway.
