Default Greatest Wins Resume Of All Time

Okay, here goes.

What fighter has the best five (Or close to it) wins of all time, regardless of era or weight class?

Barring the stage said fighters were beaten at, mind you. Past time, them being green, etc etc.

Basically, if you had no information on WHEN they beat said five fighters but simply had the names to go off of, you'd think extremely highly of the fighter that beat those five fighters.

For example...

Jack Johnson -

Jim Jeffries
Sam Langford
Joe Jeanette
Stanley Ketchel
Bob Fitzsimmons

Jeffries was coming off a long layoff in his final fight, Fitz was near the end of his career, and so on... But strictly looking at the NAMES and not when they were beaten, as we're doing here, Johnson's extremely hard to top.

Who've you got?

De La Hoya's solid here too.

Hector Camacho
Julio Cesar Chavez
Pernell Whitaker

And you'd have any number of other fighters to finish his off with.

Ray leonard.
Duran.
Hagler.
Benitez.
Hearns.
Lalonde. (i know he aint great,buts its more the weight disparity.)

Im not saying this is definately the best ever but its damn good...
You could also have duran as two fights thus eliminating donny.

Note also: hearns and benitez were undefeated,duran had one defeat in 72 bouts (avenged twice.) and hagler was undefeated in 11 years. (as against two defeats.) There combined records were something like 200 fights,three defeats,two draws and 195 wins. (with 150-160 kos to boot.)

Very hard to top Ezzard indeed, BTW i'd pick Bivins for the next spot personally, or Walcott considering he was naturally heavier aswell as very good

You can't argue with Sugar Ray Leonard's resume.

It's a shame he doesn't get the praise deserve for the Marvin Hagler victory. Truely spectacular, considering the circumstances.

Yes,the hagler victory just gets better with time. I think ray showed his class once again in that one,at 160 as well!!!
To be honest,ezzard,greb and some others can beat ray for total resume but for best four or five wins i dont think ray can be beaten....
