    I think Benny Leonard is starting to be forgotten or overlooked in general.

    I respect your opinion ,, but definitely not on my list .. He will always be a # 30 - 40 guy for me .. He cant go back in time and pick better fights .. Too many others in the history of this sport have resumes that make his look LACKING big time .... but again .. imo here .. you dont see SRR, Armstrong, Charles, Greb , Langford , B leonard etc .. changing drastically in spots too much here ,, so why should Mays .. Activity and Competition has fallen off the cliff in this sport for many years now .. that does not promote better rankings historically

    I think you can go back and forward with Charles and Leonard too it gets really muddy after the top 4.
