Barrera's name sticks out like a sore thumb. It's pretty good by contemporary standards, but outside of Morales and Hamed there isn't a lot to shout about.

One glaring ommission :
Benny Leonard beat Johnny Kilbane, Freddie Welsh, Johnny Dundee, Lew Tendler, Willie Ritchie, Charley White, Rocky Kansas, Jack Britton, Joe Welling, Leo Johnson, Ever Hammer,Soldier Bartfield and held the LW title for about 7 years retiring because he dominated all the great lightweight contenders...Best lightweight resume EVER !.

You'd have to think the following guys are locks for it:

Greb
Charles
Robinson
I.Williams
B. Leonard
Langford
Moore

Then you have probably another 15 or so candidates that are up there like:

Armstrong
Canzoneri
Gavilan
H. Williams
Burley
Britton
Jack
B.J. Walcott
Loughran
Walker
McLarnin
Gans
Attell
J.Dundee
Angott
Rodriguez (giving him the Griffith fights. Griffith himself is a candidate too...)

No mention of Fitzsimmons yet.

I also think that a couple of Flyweights are in the argument.

Taking on a mission impossible like that will only bring you ridicule. There are no definite answers for such scenarios. But they are great discussion / argument starters.

Greb, Robinson, Langford, Charles, and Walker would probably be my top 5 (not necessarily in that order).
