Top choices yogi except for the RJJ one.

Sam wasn't really a Light-Heavy was he? In his prime he was more like Super Middle. I mean he only stood 5'6". He fought in every weight class though.

Very good list Yogi, although I'd put Rosenbloom, Johnson, Lewis, and probably Dillon ahead of Jones Jr, and rank Greb a middleweight instead of a Light HW. Probably something like this

1) Sam Langford (he was at so many weight classes (but in his prime did weigh around 170-180) so hard to put at light HW but if he is then I think he deserves to be # 1)
2) Ezzard Charles
3)Archie Moore
4) Gene Tunney
5) Michael Spinks
6) Tommy Loughran
7) Billy Conn
8) Bob Foster
9) Maxie Rosenbloom
10) John Henry Lewis
11) Harold Johnson
12) Jack Dillon
13) Roy Jones Jr
14) Matthew Sadd Muhammed
15) Tiger Jack Fox

-I don't rank Fitz as a light HW but I understand if he is
