I am far from an expert on this, but i think there are 5 stats that i consider: 1) How many Hall of Fame fighers you beat? 2)Title defenses 3)number of weight classes or varied amount of weight you fought at? 4) Won-loss record, 5) Impact on sport as revolutionizing the sport or adding style- in other words influence.

I think of a few stick out Robsinson, Ali, Armstrong, and Louis. Correct me if I am Wrong? But i think both Ali and Robinson hold the record for beating the most number of fighters who are in the Hall of Fame-7. Ali beat hall of famers Moore,Paterson, Liston, Foster, Norton, Frazier, Foreman. He was a 3 time champ and only his last 2 opponents when he was over the hill Holmes and Berbick are the only guys who beat him that he didnt beat. Robinson also beat 7 hall of famers Lamotta,Graziano, Fullmer, Zivic Armstrong, Basillo, and Kid Gavilan. He had over 200 fights and fought at several weight classes, this is why i give him the slight edge.

My vote 1-Robinson, 2-Ali, 3-Armstrong, 4-Louis. Of course, its all subjective like choosing who is the greatest composer?
