    I know my top three are Robinson, Greb, and Langford but I’m undecided on the order. Armstrong is four. Between Charles and Duran for five.

    Splitting hairs when it comes to the top 8 or so though, Henry Armstrong and Willie Pep are obviously in the discussion

    Since this is about greatness (and not H2H):
    SRR, Langford, Armstrong, Greb, Pepp.

    I don't rate Langford and Greb personally. But roughly my list would look like this.

    (In this order)
    Fritzie Zivic
    Sandy Saddler
    Esubio Pederoza
    Amnat Ruenroeng
    Evander Holyfield
