He's one of them, yes.

Which indicates how weak the Jr Welterweight Division historically.

Canzoneri and Ross, despite the short amounts of time they spent at 140, were better than Pryor.

Locche also edges Pryor as well.

Agree with IronDan: 140 is a very shallow division. Pryor, while an ATG, is obscenely overrated.

Default Maybe!

There is no real way to know for sure.
Here are his accomplishments at JWW
1. Antonio Cervantes, aging and at the very end of his Career, yet he still put Pryor down, Personally I think he beats Pryor in his prime, so he gets credit of course for beating him, but how much since his career was over.
2. He beat Arguello who was not a JWW, at his best below LW, and a good solid LW, but no way was he a legit JWW, yet Pryor and his corner had to cheat to beat him in the 1st fight, watch that right hand Arguello throws that bends pryors neck straight back and he does not go down, how and why not, he was always going down from much lesser fighters, I was from cinci and never missed 1 fight of his, so I know, he could be put down, yet when Arguello hit him with that right hand, I went OMG, Pryor is done, then his head springs forward and he just goes right on like it was nothing, but just from the impact of it, it had to be one of the best, if not the best Punch Pryor had ever been hit with, yet he didnt go down, impossible, that's the affect of his cheating I think, wish we knew for sure what he took.
anway, how much credit do you give him for beating a guy that was not a JWW, a great fighter, yes, so he does get credit, then in the rematch, Arguellos heart and sole had been stolen in the 1st fight, you could tell, no way mentally he beats Pryor again, so other than those 3 Fights, what did Pryor do as a JWW, NOT 1 SINGLE THING, he never fought the #1 contender Mamby, yes he would have most likely won, but how much credit as the best of the century do you give a guy that never fought his #1 or #2 or #3 or top contenders, Dujuan Johnson, was ranked what like 4th-7th when they fought, I dont remember for sure, but Johnson was no champ, no threat to ever be one, and he put Pryor down and he did not have big power, good or fair, yes, that's it, Pryor's camp took him and ran away from the LW division, he was the #1 Contender, so he would have received a title shot, but they ran, the LW division was stacked at the time, He should have stayed and fought Mancini, Blake, Ganigan, O'Grady, Arroyo, Paul, Rosario, Arguello at LW, Watt, Kenty, and he should have accepted Durans offer while at JWW, duran would have fought him before moving up as a full WW, but he waited so long to reply and or agree, Duran moved on, so no, how do you rate him greatest of anything based on all that and nothing else, he beats 2 guys at the end of their careers and 1 not even a legit JWW and you call him the Greatest of anything, NO WAY!
