Middleweight #8.

All time? Not sure, Top 50 probably.

Middleweight #8.

Last list I did that's about where I had him too.

Just Top 10 on a MW list and Top 100 all time.

He doesn't make my Top 50 P4P for now although he is close as he has some quality wins.

lower top 10 of MW ( considering it's such a stacked division, that's an honor )

ATG I don't know

LoL, what ever. I love me some Jake LaMatta. IMO SRR isn't half the boxer he is if he doesn't fight Jake. Anyway, top five middle 'cause he's touched me heart more than his record of achievement, but hell isn't the way you box the most important factor? C'mon you see the Rocky pic. Y'all know that ***** looked exactly the same at times. Anyway ATG p4p with out the bare knucklers I'm sure I can find him a spot in the top ten, but then again I'm biased for style, and can easily justify bringing down a more rewarded fighter who's a bit less heart etc.

I rate him high as an ATG middleweight top ten. I think he is somewhat underrated by a lot of people who overlook his skills and only see him as a " brawler."
