Default Re: who is the greatest of all time? vote.

Well the best achievement is Armstrong: simultaneously being the best man in 3 different weight classes.

the best resume is Greb: eeds no further input.

The best on film is Robinson.

It's extremely close between these 3 guys but in the end I go with Robinson and here's why. I've never seen Greb fight and out of a prime matchup between Robinson and Armstrong I favour Robinson to emerge victorious.

Sounds reasonable and logical enough to me

i'm with the big O, fine post and nicely sums up the fighters involved and the difficulty with choosing ONE greatest...it really depends on your criteria.

by the way: surprised you don't have fitz in contention for greatest achievement. also for greatest achievement, i think langford MAY have a case with his wins/newspaper wins from lightweight-heavyweight:
1)joe gans
2)walcott
3)ketchell
4)o'brien
5)everyone but johnson

Love the way you put this, and indeed: They are my top three.

Robinson and Armstrong's resumes are certainly nothing to sneeze at either.

Langford beat great fighters from Lightweight to Heavyweight. I'm not so sure Greb's resume is any better, nor Armstrong's actual achievement.

1. Robinson
2. Langford
3. Greb

Those are the guys I like for the top spot, most often in that order.

Joe Louis looks best on film to me, and his achievements (longest reign, most defences, 22 title fight KOs) stack up well against anyone's.

I know Cox has him in his top five P4P.
