I have him # 3 all-time at feather behind Armstrong and Pep, but I wouldn't argue too much with anyone that has him 1 or 2.
Yeah, 10 is a little high IMO but nothing silly. There is def a serious case for him being in the top 20. I see him as #3 at feather too (though that's as far as my list goes!).

It's an extraordinary series those guys fought really. Some incredible work in those fights - and some old school trips for sure.

Basiclaly Pep got the better, in a dramatic series, of one of the best fighters who ever lived. Mayweather, on the other hand,is a very, very, very talented fighter.

Any comparison is trite at best.

AND



Although i'd have to say, you'd be out of line if he'd offered up one shred for consideration.

And you can't ban him, they love him elsewhere.

Calm down dude. I agree with you that Pep was one of the best, but it's not worth raging up a storm of profanity like that..

In what way do you think I consider a top 30 ATG rubbish -questionmark- I am only suggesting he should not be touching the top 10 -fullstop- You don't think I have respect for one of the 30 greatest boxers of all time -questionmark-

I'd probably rate Sandy Saddler ahead of Willie Pep at featherweight.
