Default Best welterweight of all-time

Who, in your opinion, is the best welterweight of all-time? It can include fighters from both past and present.

In my opinion it's Sugar Ray Leonard.

When I say welterweight I mean a fighter whose career was mostly based in the welterweight division. Meaning that Sugar Ray Robinson wouldn't count since he was mostly a middleweight.

In my opinion it's Sugar Ray Leonard.
And yet they consider SRR to be the greatest welter ever!

I decided to add Sugar Ray Robinson to the list since he was champion for five years at welterweight.

By the way, poll is up.

Robinson was a welterweight for almost a decade from age 20 to 29. He cleaned out the division of its top contenders and was recognized as the uncrowned welterweight champion until being given his deserved chance at the title after spending 5 years as the number 1 challenger.

I am going to have to go with Sugar Ray Robinson. And if you are just picking him because he was the champ for so long, go watch some of his videos (Not the greatest quality), it's awesome to watch how good this guy was.
