I voted for Leonard, but it was close between him and Duran.

It's Duran, Hearns, Hagler, Leonard in that order. The last three are close, but Duran is clearly a class above the rest.

Leonard got my vote. Of course I'm biased since he's my uncle and all.

I went with Leonard followed closely by Duran even though I personally have been a bigger fan of Hagler since I was originally from the Boston area he was the first fighter who I can even remember hearing about. :boxing:

Depends how you structure these rankings.....is it in terms of head-to-head, or the best overall career fighter?

If it's head-to-head, gotta go with Leonard. But the best career fighter was Duran, who suffers when considered in head-to-head matches. He had a whole career (and a legendary one) before these other guys even made a name for themselves.

I agree, Leonard was ahead, but not by much, if he had Robinsons power he'd have been incredible.

YES. :crying:

1. Duran
2. Leonard
3. Hagler
4. Hearns

That's how I have it. The difference between Duran and Leonard is pretty much longelivity but, it is close.

Hagler isn't exactly trailing behind Leonard either though.

Hagler's dominance about matches Hearns's achievements so I go by the result of their fight as a tie breaker and Hagler takes it.

Its tough to split Duran and SRL p4p but those to top Hearns and Hagler for me

Hagler beat all 3 of them so he has to rank higher... and Plus, he has a more impressive resume and abilities in my opinion..

The best p4p out of them was in order:
Duran
Leonard
Hagler
Hearns

Imo

P4P it's Sugar Ray.

He beat the other three.

He also lost to 2 of them (The 2nd Hearn's 'draw' is nonsense) and arguably lost to Hagler, where as Hagler also beat Hearns and Duran more decisively and didn't take any losses. :dunno:.

Apparently it is not common knowledge but when the phrase "Fab Four" was first conceived by Ring Magazine in 79 thru the early 80's it was used to describe Leonard, Duran, Hearns and Benitez. And that was who fans thought of when the phrase was used.

It was not til after the welters invaded the middleweight ranks that Hagler replaced Benitez.

Duran's glory years were before the other three became established champions, he really shouldn't be included in the comparisons just because the media grouped them all together, and came from a much lower weight than the others.

Leonard has wins over all of them (even though vs hagler at least should have been a draw)

duran lost to all of them........only 1 win against a stubborn leonard that tried to brawl instead of dance.

1. Leonard
2. Hagler
3. Hearns.
4. Duran

I think hearns deserves more credit for earning titles all the way up to cruiserweight

also I would argue SRL was the most naturally gifted out of the bunch.

Hagler was the strongest

Duran was the meanest

hearns hit the hardest

duran was the best LW ever and is in an equation with a couple of huge WW's and a career MW with maybe the best chin ever



yeah duran got my vote

I don't think Hagler beat Leonard, some people claim that Hagler annihilated Leonard, but Leonard won on points. I don't see how Hagler could have won without at least a knockdown. This fight was at best for Hagler a DRAW, Ray was piling up the points every round and I thought Hagler had to KO Ray. It WAS A CLOSE FIGHT and a knockdown would have had a 10-8 round. In my opinion the fight was a draw, and all fights that are as close should always be a draw. Why does there have to be a winner, when there clearly is'nt one, lets go back to 20 round fights, HAGLER would have walked 20 rounds in against Ray ...... This is how I see it.

Duran didn't do that much outside of LW... I say Leonard.
