Default In retrospect, should Camacho sr be considered a legendary fighter?

He had a load of high profile bouts in the 80's and 90's.. He was also undefeated for a very long time though many people including myself know he really got a gift decision against Mancini.. Does he deserve to be up there with the other greats of his generation like Chavez and Whitaker?

He is a step below chavez and whittaker... Though I would have loved to seen Camacho and pernell tangle..

Camacho is a hall of fame caliber guy, just not an ATG type guy..

He was an ATG character/personality

I think he does....he is one of those asterisk guys, i.E he is not a shoo in. His physical gifts, including his power was on the order of Roy jones, at his best he is not an easy fight for anyone.
