Surprised you didn't have Hearns in that poll.

First man to win titles in four and five different divisions

As much as it pains me to admit it, Ray Leonard wins.

I know I know, I just wanted to have as broad a spectrum of fighters as possible. Plus, he wasn't exactly a pushover during the decade in question.

I was trying to keep the poll as balanced as possible but yes an argument could obviously be made for Hearns in place of Camacho for sure.

Leonard 1st, Michael Spinks 2nd.

To have Hector Camacho in the poll but no Thomas Hearns is pretty appalling.

Hearns won titles at 147,154,160,168 and 175,beating cuevas,benitez,duran,LEONARD (you know he did second time boys.) and hill. And leonards win against wilfo was in 79.
Duran won titles at 147,154 and 160,beating leonard,moore,cuevas,barkley along the way.
I would say overall its got to be hearns,with leonard a close second...

As much as I believe that he DID NOT defeat Marvin Hagler, I'd have to say Ray Leonard.

Marvin Hagler for me.. beat Leonard IMO as well as a prime Hearns, Duran and a host of middleweight contenders. He's the man for me.
