It's kinda hard to put someone in front of someone else but to just keep everyone to there own weight classes

Heavyweight - Tyson
Cruiserweight - Holyfield
Light heavyweight - Roy Jones Jr
Super middleweight - Roy Jones Jr
Middleweight - Hopkins
Light middleweight
Welterweight
Light welterweight
Lightweight
Junior lightweight
Featherweight
Junior Featherweight
Bantamweight
Super flyweight
Flyweight
Light flyweight

Who was the greatest in these weight classes, I personally haven't seen enough to be able to honestly fill every single slot. Am supposed to be revising for an exam so ill finish the list later

I know i might get my throat slit for saying this, but i thought winky wright was a great junior middleweight, and while its a weird weightclass, winky was the only true man to unifiy that division so far. Tommy hearns had a handful of fights at m154, but he moved up to middle and super middle after that and he remained there and upwards the rest of his career. he fought at weltweweight and middleweight many more tiems than he ever did as a junior middle. And his biggest fights were at those weights, not junior middle. I think its still a very young weightclass, and not much has been accomplished as compared to middleweight and welterweight, but if you view the history of this division, I think a modern boxer may deserve the goat crown. Just a thought.

And as far as middleweight goes, I also love marvin hagler and thought he was a tough middleweight, but do not forget the great carlos monzon. He was 87-3 as a middlweight, unified the division, and went undefeated for 15 years and over 70 fights.

winky wright definitely had a great body of work at 154. the biggest name on his resume at the weight was fernando vargas which was a loss. he also loss to harry simon. he really doesn't have any wins over big names at the weight.

hearns on the other hand beat wilfredo benitez and ko'd roberto duran in devastating fashion. hard to top that at the weight.

i agree that not much has been accomplished at the weight in it's short history....but i can't think of any wins that top tommy's.

no doubt monzon was a great fighter. i have not seen enough footage of monzon to rate him above hagler. i'm sure there are people out there that can make the case for monzon.
