    Perhaps each of them didn't eat more than a 7-pounder.:thinking:

    I'm not certain if Griffith fits into this corset , but be allowed to listed here.

    Griffith was not born on the mainland of the USA.
    He was born on the island of St Thomas in the US held part of the Virgin Islands.

    ps There's a clue in the word ISLAND!lol

    Can't you get someone to read the thread and interpret it for you?

    But what is the reason about it and which nationality shall he have? Accoring to your "logic" is someone born at Long Island or Rhode Island not eligable to be included in the list (Judah is from Brooklyn I think, so I'm not sure if I can put him in).:dunno:confused:

    Both Long Island and Rhode Island are on the mainland of the USA.
    The Virgin Islands are not.

    No them are islands, as their name says if you would be able to read, so according to you they can't be part of the mainland (as you just excluded this by the word island), similar as Guantanamo.

    For you would it be different (maybe 3,5), as you count like Pippi Longsock.

    If we exclude Griffith (for which reason however), then would be my ranking about this:

    1. Ray Robinson 2. Jake Britton, 3. Henry Armstrong, 4. Pernell Whitaker, 5. Thomas Hearns, 6. Mickey Walker, 7. Ray Leonard, 8. Floyd Mayweather, 9. Carmen Basilo, 10. Shane Mosley, 11. Donald Curry, 12. Wilfried Benitez, 13. Marlon Starling, 14. Mark Breland, 15. Fritz Zivic, 16. Vernon Forrest, 17. Oscar de la Hoya, 18. Cory Spinks, 19. James McGirt Sr., 20. Barney Ross

    There could be also at the end of my list Milton McCrory, Keith Thurman and Zab Judah.
