I'd have to go with Aaron Pryor off the top of my head. I never really think about the Junior Welterweight division. It seems like nobody talks about Pryor anymore. I still go around going "What time is it? HAWK TIME!" and nobody fu.cking knows what I'm talking about.

Is the site working weird for anyone else? I can't access colors, fonts, or smiley faces.

Gotta go with Pryor based on resumes, Chavez you would think is better, ratings wise than Kostya, but some think he's overrated.

To bad Pacquiao didn't do more at 140, cause he'd beat all those guys on that list.

Even AAron pryor!

I know sounds like a blatant nuthuggery statement, but the man's got more skills and athletic abilities than anyone on that list.

I swear that list is missing somebody.....

The long-reigning Antonio Cervantes is at the top.

Would have been nice to have seen Duran stay away from his gorging long enough to stop and pick this title up on way through to WW and be be included in the list

Excellent list. The only addition I would make is Carlos Ortiz, but looking at your list I would not know if I would remove any of your names. Pryor is the undisputed greatest in this division. Anyone who could take Arguello's perfect right flush and not blink, and have endless energy, is something special. Arguello hits anyone on that list(or Pacquaio, Mayweather, etc.) with that same right hand, that man is going down

not quite my friend, pryor would beat him,
pryor isnt a wieght drained oscar,
or a overrated no boxing ability hatton,
when pryor was determined, no 140 fighter would beat him.

pryor by late KO

doubtful, Pryor was a beast, but he's not a p4p king. He doesn't possess the tool set to beat Pacquiao. I'm not saying this because I'm some noob who thinks Pacquiao is the best. On paper I like Pacquiaos chances.

Oscar was weight drained no doubt, but what does being weight drained have to do with nearly missing every punch and not being able to get off. I can see it effecting his punch resistance and strength only. One look at the Pernell Whitaker vs ODLH fight and it's easy to see the man can't deal with southpaws who move.

Anyways, not trying to hijack the thread, I just personally, when you break it down, can't see Pryor beating the ever elusive power-punching Pacquiao.

You should make a thread on the subject, breaking down each fighters strengths. I can't see how "pressure" and one dimension could break down a very skilled fighter in this case. Not saying Pryor was unskilled, but if the fight did happen he would resort to mindless pressure due to his huge speed disadvantage.

Although Pryor achievement wise get's the nod at 140, there were other fights out side of his weight class that I think he would have lost. Duran, Leonard etc..some examples.
