Wish I could of put more on the poll, but 10's the limt. Thus the reason there's no Cerdan, Walker, Tiger, Griffith, Conn, Fitzsimmons, Ryan etc on it.

Many people don't realize that Fitz enjoyed most of his success at MW..

Even when he was fighting at Heavyweight he didn't weigh much over the Middleweight limit. Funny thing about Fitz: In the two fights with Jeffries Ruby Robert was just destroying him and simply wore down in the second fight and broke both hands in the first fight. In both cases Fitzsimmons came out of the fights practically unmarked while Jeffries looked like he'd been assaulted with a chainsaw ;)

Always reminded me of a Praying Mantis.. Thin spiteful and strong..
A bigger version of Sandy Saddler would be a good way of describing him..

I have to admit Ruby Robert is an all-time favorite of mine :)

3. LaMotta

You can make arguments for your 1 and 2, but how can LaMotta possibly rank above Hagler and Monzon?

I would go with Sugar Ray too with Hagler and Monzon tieing for second.

i agree mate......i should edit my post, i have a 3 way tie for 3rd hagler/monzon/lamotta....i can't seem to make up my mind

but for me, Sugar Ray is the best Middleweight ever....i mean come on, to do what he did at middleweight when he was way past his best is incredible

IMO Marvin Hagler.
