Go figure these voters because I never can.
You're dissing Canzoneri? Do you know who he is, who he fought and the accomplishments gathered over that period? I'm guessing not. I absolutely understand your point in saying that Ross is underrated because he most certainly is. For some odd reason he always seems to never be mentioned as the first to hold three titles in three divisions simultaneously.

Such an emotive subject picking one and possibly a runner up. 2 fighters per decade can't do anything but cause arguments. Add Louis to Canzoneri for the 30's how about Dempsey in the 20's and so on.
