Is there a particular reason you rate Camacho so low? Along with Ruiz? Rosario in the top 5 despite losing to Camacho and having a lesser overall career?

thanks for the lists and a couple of new names to check out.
Hector Camacho and John Ruiz in the same orbit? You definitely know more than me but it made me laugh all the same.

In the 80s

Camacho then Gomez then Benitez. Hector had the most sucess never having lost from 1980 to 1990. Most people dont even know that!

Next you could say Gomez was a little more successful than Wifred Benitez
