I have it

SRR
Greb
Armstrong

However I'm reading more and more about Greb and am willing to accept that he could leapfrog Ray quite easily

Sam Langford for me. Not in the poll.

I think that he, Armstrong, Greb and Sugar are the only ones that have a real case, though maye Fitz and Charles have an outside chance.

in this poll I voted for Leonard. He fought the best guys of a whole decade in just 2 years, and then fought Hagler, the last great of the decade. He beat them all.

I go with the conventional wisdom on this one. Sugar Ray Robinson. He was at his best as a welterweight,though.

Actually, I attempted to put Sam Langford on the poll, but didn't list enough options. I also had the choice of "other", but it too didn't go through. I just messed up on the poll.

Robinson was the greatest.

You should have did an open poll tho.

Greb, obviously.

On fighters we have footage of, Armstrong. I have no worries with anyone picking Robinson or Langford, but I have Greb at 1, followed by Armstrong, and then Robinson.

Because Pernell Whitaker is one of the greatest fighters of all time. Few fighters can claim to be better than Whitaker at lightweight. I personally wouldn't rank him as the top guy, but some people might. I was just putting him on the list. If you read my previous posts, you would see that I messed up on the poll. I didn't list 10 options, rather only 8. So, Sam Langford and other weren't on there.

Ok, guys. I could only list 10. I messed up and only listed 8. I have typed this several times. One of my options was going to be OTHER!!!!! Other meaning: Bob Fitzsimmons, Tommy Ryan, Ezzard Charles, Joe Gans, or whoever you think it should be. Got it? I also attempted to list Sam Langford, but like I have said repeatedly.....I MESSED UP!!!!
