If flea were here he would mention Ricardo Lopez. In his absence I'll throw that out there although I disagree and think that it was his pluperfect technique and great combination punching that separates him. But flea knows and he'll surely post something about the man he calls the second greatest filmed fighter in combat sports history (behind Khaosai of course).

Like McGrain I'll go for the guys who kept it at their own range rather than could fight anywhere. So Chang wouldn't qualify here, Pea is closer.

Jones, Monzon, Canto (at his best)

He's probably too passive-aggressive to be recognised amongst the very best ring generals, but he definitely toyed with guys in there and did what he wanted most of the time.

Not really he was a savage finisher, ask Hurtado.

Valero and David Haye are the shittest finishers ever.

Willie Pep:

The round was usually won before it was anywhere near done. Pep did not have to throw a whole lot of punches. He just moved where he wanted and hit you when he wanted.

He`s obviously one of them, its impossible to say anyone is the greatest ring general though, there`s just far too many things involved.
