    Had to go with the Hitman, he was damn near the perfect Welter, reach height, insane jab and tremendous power.

    I have to admit I don't know much about Gavilan, gives me something to dig into!

    Pac is my favorite fighter, but I can say that it's a certainty that Pac would lose. Only question is does Duran get the stoppage. Probably not because Pac was never dropped in his prime, hell he was hardly even stunned in his prime. But hes never fought Duran either.

    Pacquiao 2 pre prime malnourishment KOs and his post prime KTFO6 actually cause many to underrate a prime Pacs chin. A prime Pac had a legitimate iron chin. Not just a good one, but a genuinely iron chin.

    Hearns.

    Duran is probably the best boxer of the 8, but Hearns is a horrible match-up for him.

    Looks like it's a Hearns v Mayweather final at the moment, George.

    Hears is so far ahead he's a definite, the question is whether anyone can catch Mayweather.

    Pacquiao is the most likely to catch up, i reckon.

    P.S I'd like to see a pre-Ali heavyweight series, you know, featuring all those smaller guys mentioned in the heavyweight thread.

    If you wanted to do it I think your knowlege would make it a more nuanced group.

    If you don't want to, who do you think should be on it, mate?

    Yeah, makes me feel a little sick that the consensus is Mayweather > Gavilan, but I knew that'd be the case when I made the thread. In a proper welterweight tournament with the best welters ever (IMO), Pac, Floyd, Tito or DLH would make it on there.

    For me, the musts for a pre-Ali HW list are: Louis, Marciano, Liston, Dempsey and Johnson. After that, Walcott, Charles, Jeffries, Patterson and Schmeling could all go on there.

    I was about to say "Great thread idea, Squire Crowcroft! :thumbsup:" before clicking it open, but egads - you couldn't be arsed to even bracket them up, ya lazy git?! :mad:

    Sexy lineup though. Really can't make too many bad (nor wildly imbalanced) matches there.
