I imagine he meant that Beau Jack was D'Amato's favorite lightweight of all time. He was a crowd pleaser, and a great fighter, but not the greatest.

He's probably top 10, I don't see how he could be better then Joe Gans, Benny Leonard or Roberto Duran though.

Probably liked Jack more because of his style and how he never gave up.

Cus love of Beau is well known giving him shoe shines instead of vice versa ect but I find it hard to believe he considered him the greatest of all Lightweights???
