Ezzard Charles has a considerably better resume, and Greb certainly does.

Charles beat Burley twice, Moore 3 times, an old Louis, Lloyd Marshall, Jimmy Bivins, Joey Maxim, Lee Q Murray, Jersey Joe Walcott.

And Greb beat more ATGs than Ali did. A middleweight who beat every HW he ever fought.

Ali, while exceptionally great, doesn't stanD up to these guys IMO

Sure, but you can see how it would be misleading.

I guess I've always been slightly put off by the signifcantly lesser quantity of film footage. I have respect for the ATG old timers, but not an in-depth education on them. Where as with many modern fighters, particularly over the last 40 years or so, it's possible to own entire career sets.
Look him up m8, its worth it! He guy was an absolute beast at his best. He was stopped twice, once in his 7th fight, and next when he broke his arm in the ring (his corner stopped it while he wanted to go on). The last 4 years of his career he was blind in one eye!

He died at age 32.

UNBELIEVABLE!!! Where is Manny Pacquiao?

How can there be any other selections??
In most boxing forums the only boxers that could ever be considered the Greatest-Of-All-Time have been:
-Mike Tyson
-Roy Jones Jr.
-Oscar De La Hoya
-Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather

Especially Oscar.....I was actually brainwashed to believe that boxing only existed in order to provide a platform and showcase from which to crown him God.
