and until 1945 he weighed 151-153 lbs in most his fights while SRR fought lots of opponents that weighed the same or heavier between 1942 and 45.

It's not just a case of who has the best names on their resume which is why it's so hard to compile a well thought out list. Only the best historians can make a list which truly represents their opinions as a lot of work needs to go into it. It's something I haven't done, and probably will not do.
