Default May Madness - Middleweights

For those who remember my March Madness thread courtesy of the Heavyweight Division, I am planning on doing one for the Middleweights as well. This will be a tournament of the traditional format, no best of 7. The one difference will be viewer participation. I want the decisions to be 100% up to the readers. Based on the votes, I may use my writing abilities to flesh out some fight details, but other than that, it's up to you.

First, let's compile a list of the top 32 (or 64) middleweights of all-time. Junior and Super Middles can be included. I imagine we'll see a couple of Sugar's, and the Marvellous One, but we'll proceed anyway. Post away!

Some additions to K-DOGG's list:

Charley Burley
Lloyd Marshall
Holman Williams
Les Darcy
Sam Langford - might be unfair since he'd probably wipe the floor with any middleweight in history.

This is great! I look forward to this one and I'm glad you're not going to go the best of seven route.
