Easily the best lightweight? I don't see how you can just put him head and shoulders above Leonard and Gans. As far as p4p....he doesn't have the resume to be in the top 5.

1. Benny Leonard
2. Henry Armstrong
3. Robert Duran
4. Pernell Whitaker
5. Joe Gans
Anyone of these could be #1 AT, no argument for any of them, pick and choose in any order, there is absolutely no way anyone correctly does it, since it's impossible to find out, and all 5 had an awesome resume for the division, put them in any order you wish and you won't be wrong.
If you could take them out of time and fight a 5 man tournament in their Prime, I doubt any one of them dominates the tournament, I would be they each beat each other.

Very interesting thread with some good posts..
Not sure how to rank them but the top would in some order for me would probably be
Honorable mention to Chavez, leonard, arguello, floyd, shane,
Very tough to narrow it down, leonard should be on my list due to resume alone, but I just don't think he was as great as the ones I mentioned
