-- --------------------

So when it comes down to it, I would say the Greatest Jr. Welterweight Champions would be those he could hold on to the title for periods of times. So when you cut through all the champions I come down to these fighters.

Miguel Cotto - 6 reigns/11 title defenses
Roland Navarette - 1 reign/7 title defenses
Jab Judah - 1 reign/7 title defenses


---------------------

You can make an argument for any fighter and I'll edit the poll accordingly. Mike Taylor gets on the poll since he claims to be the best champion.


Make your choice and tell it like it is!

I feel so dissapointed Zab Judah was left out of this poll...it's between Cotto and Mike Taylor I guess
Blayde
Wow I didnt realize Jab had such a run. I thought you typed the wrong name and it was supposed to be Zab Judah laugh.gif

Its definitely Cotto though in my opinion. He ruled 140 like no one else has ever done and hes still putting on great performances.

Is it safe to say the trash talking Mike Taylor just lost.
