Throw in some modern guys like Pacquiao, Morales, Barrera, Trinidad and De La Hoya (I suppose you can include him) too.

Out of them, I think only Pac, Lewis, Morales, Barrera and Tszyu are great fighters - thus far.

And I think DLH can definately be said to be Mexican. He lives in PR, not us.

Roberto Duran.

Jimmy Wilde, Carlos Monzon, Eder Jofre, and Alexis Arguello are all up there too.

Throw in some modern guys like Pacquiao, Morales, Barrera, Trinidad and De La Hoya (I suppose you can include him) too.

Why De La Hoya? He was born and raised in Los Angeles.

ray robinson was at his peak as a welterweight.

he only lost 4 times before the age of 37 after well over 100 contests, most of these were fought at middleweight

Yeh Great List.
Wouldnt have Calzaghe though as he constantly swerves decent fighters and IMO lost to Reid.
Also thought of Kirkland Laing, he was awsome when he wasnt stoned!

it is either Salvador Sanchez or Julio Cesar Chavez

roberto duran is over-rated.
