If you're talking about how fighters rank in terms of greatness.....then you rank them for how great they were for their particular era.

But, I'm willing to concede that Greb was greater for his era than Hagler was his....
I know this goes off my orginal topic but I am wondering JabsRstiff is you consider Ray Leonard better in his era than Marvin?
