    No racism please

    Who would you consider the top 5 best white boxers?

    Harry Greb and Rocky Marciano gotta be up there imo.

    Also, Lamotta, Benny Leonard, Tunney, Fitzsimmons and would say Locche but I'm not sure if he is considered white?

    I'd vouch for Calzaghe actually, not the best, but one of them.

    Joe Calzhage was awesome and doesn't get enough credit. His resume is a little weak but his skill was elite.

    Actually, mine would be;

    Harry Greb
    Willie Pep
    Benny Leonard
    Mickey Walker
    Bob Fitzsimmons

    All those guys are in my top 12 ever, for whatever that's worth.

    I like Calzaghe a lot, but he's nowhere near top five white fighters. You've got way more ATG white fighters than most fans know about. Like the holy trinity: Ross, Canzoneri and McLarnin. Or Loughran, Ryan, Attell, McFarland, Ketchel, Marciano, Basilio, Kansas, Britton, Wilde, Dundee, Dillon, Rosenbloom, Ambers, O'Brien, Brouillard, McGovern, Dempsey, Nonpareil Dempsey, Welsh, Young Corbett III, LaMotta, Zivic, Tendler, Steele, Tunney, Cerdan, Carpentier, Zale. All could or definitely should be rated higher than Calzaghe.
