    I know people tend to stick their nose up at the thought that Ali was TBE but look at those opponents.. hard to argue against it. Ezzard and Mayweather as well I’d add Joe Louis but he’s not up there lol

    Wow. This is difficult.

    I'll try, taking into account when the wins took place i.e whether it was during the opponent's prime or out of prime.

    1. Harry Greb
    2. Ezzard Charles
    3. Sugar Ray Robinson
    4. Sam Langford
    5. Muhammad Ali
    6. Henry Armstrong
    7. Sugar Ray Leonard
    8. Archie Moore
    9. Floyd Mayweather Jr.
    10. Roberto Duran
    11. Gene Tunney
    12. Manny Pacquiao

    Ali's top 3 and Ray Leonard's top 4 are the best imo, but Greb, Charles, Langford and Robinson have quality through and through

    There is not right answer, but in terms of beating the top all time greats Ray Leonard's wins over Hagler, Hearns and Duran, universally accepted top 6 guys at Middle, welter and lightweight are tough to beat.

    From top to bottom Greb's might have the best depth.

    100% right about Pep and McLarnin. I'll add them now.

    Ray Leonard has the weakest guys in his list.
