    Whitaker isn't a top 5 LW? Some people have him no. 1, especially if they weigh h2h a lot

    Holmes had th best jab ive ever seen and was one of the most underrated heavyweight champions Ive seen.
    Hearns was just electrifying - everytime he foughr 9 times out of ten you left satisfied.
    Whitaker did things in the ring that were amazing- he was like the Michael Jordan of boxing.
    They all had great traits and all legendary in some regards.
    Who will ever forget Hearns KO of Duran or Cuveas?
    Or Holmes vs Norton- a great heavyweight fight. Or the Cooney fight- the build up was such an event.
    Or how Whitaker outboxed the great Nelson or how he made JC look ordinary.
    Each in there own right made such an impact on Boxing I couldnt pick who was greater then who. Each left their mark on boxing forever.

    3. Johnson
    4. Holmes
