Default Greatest Resumes

Oscar De La Hoya gets a very mixed press in here but I think most will agree that win or lose, on opponents fought he deserves upmost respect.
Which got me thinking as to who and why people think have the top 10 resumes as to opponents fought.
I'd like to throw in Fritzie Zivic's name into the mix, a spotty record and has the most losses of any world champion I believe but whatever your view of his abilities you cannot say he ducked too many.

In the late 30's and early 40's it was a rite of passage to have Fritzie's thumb or laces in your eye, amongst his opponents were:
Sugar Ray Robinson
Jake LaMotta
Beau Jack
Henry Armstrong
Billy Conn
Lou Ambers
Freddie Cochrane
Lew Jenkins
Sammy Angott
Bob Montgomery
Charley Burley
Al 'Bummy' Davis
Eddie Booker
Harold Green

So lets hear those names, extra kudos for the lesser known fighters.

I think Ricardo Mayorga or Trevor Berbick have outstanding resumes but didn't win most of their big fights.
Jerry Quarry has also a very impressive resume:
Frazier
Foreman
Ali
Norton
Lyle
Shavers
Patterson
Chuvalo
Buster Mathis

Sugar Ray Leonard has a pretty good resume:

He also beat Donny Lalonde and Ayub Kalule who were both champions, at the time.

Greb takes some beating:
Tiger Flowers
Mickey Walker
Maxie Rosenbloom
Gene Tunney
Tommy Loughran
Kid Norfolk
Johnny Wilson
Tommy Gibbons
Gunboat Smith
Jack Dillon
Mike McTigue
Battling Levinsky
Willie Meehan
Billy Miske

What I love about Greb is the fact he fought lots of these guys back to back maybe a week or two between the fights.
