My list will be controversal to some having RJJ and Mayweather there, but I use the literal term of P4P - who would be the best of the best if they were the same weight in their primes, combined with how they performed against the best of the best in their respective divisions. So I see RJJ beating Greb at 160-168 and Mayweather beating Armstrong at 130-140

1. SRR
2. Duran
3. Charles
4. Langford
5. Greb
6. RJJ
7. Pepp
8. Mayweather
9. Ali
10. Armstrong

I generally put him at #4, #5, or #6. He, Duran, and Armstrong are more or less interchangeable as far as where I rank them. Charles is a lock for the top 10 as far as I'm concerned and is probably top 5.
