Greb was the most accomplished ever natural middle, but Monzon was the best champion to reign at the weight, IMO.

Greb, no doubt. However, had Ketchell never been murdered, its arguable the man could have reigned a decade more---there simply were no middleweights in that time who could have stood up to his punching power, and in the era of 20-45 round fights, I dont see many lasting that long against him.

I have to go with Greb here.

Fitzsimmons is a close second.

I would say Marvin Hagler or Carlos Monzon. Sugar Ray Robinson was better than those two,pound for pound,but he was at his very best as a welterweight.
