    I think Schmeling should be above Greb and Langford, and I wouldn't have Tunney quite as high, not above Charles.

    I think Corbett should be a bit higher, more around Conn, but that's probably more controversial.

    14 title defenses is hard to argue.

    In recent times, a WBO champion who never unifies with the other champions could have 100 defenses, and still not even be the best fighter in their own division.

    Usyk and Louis (Godoy version) don't qualify as under-190.

    Good point about Schmeling May need to reconsider

    Correct. In my uncaffeinated delirium I read sub 200. I will reconfigure.
