Default Carlos Ortiz> Duran and Whitaker

IMO, i think you can make a case that Ortiz has a superior resume than both fighters. I mean the man beat 6 hall of famers:
joe brown
flash elorde
nicholino locche
duilio loi
ismael laguna
sugar ramos

Duran has beat 4 hall of famers and whitaker has beat like 3(even though buddy mcgirt and julio cesar vasqez should be in it for sure).

No doubt.

Ortiz is an all-time great, who's body of work can compare to all the other lightweights.

Not by a lot. Infact, Ortiz could potentially beat both. He wasn't the kind of fighter who was out to win every round and dazzle the crowds so he didn't always look inspiring; no, Ortiz was Carlos Monzon in that he did just enough to win. But he was a very, very complete fighter and a very strong one at that, if anyone could beat him, he'd make them go through hell first.
