Anyway, at that level you can't get butt hurt because you're splitting hairs when you're ranking that level of legend over one another.

What's your top 20? Why isn't Luis Manuel Rodriguez, Tony Canzoneri or Terry McGovern in it?
Why aren't Monzon, Gavilan and Napoles in yours?

He'd be revered if he was Pittsburgh Jack O'Brien.

I'll do my research on him, I can promise you that. I see he didn't really get his hands on the middleweight title until late his career. Shame.

Freddie Pendelton comes to mind for some reason. At his best, he was very, very good. Records can be deceiving.

Hah! Great minds think alike.

Winky is definitely one, as is his one-time conqueror Julio Cesar Vazquez.

The grab for the title in the post-Ketchel years was insane. Took awhile to establish a true champion.
