      Duran kayoed or stopped 50 of his first 62 opponents on the way to compiling a 62-1 record during the first ten years of his career staring briefly as a featherweight but fighting mostly as a lightweight. Among his prominent KO victims include featherweight great Ernesto Marcel and lightweight contender Vilomar Fernandez ( the only boxers to beat Alexis Arguello early in his career ), world champions Esteban de Jesus, Ken Buchanan, Hiroshi Kobayashi and Guts Ishimatsu and lightweight contender Ray Lampkin. He also held wins over Saoul Mamby and Edwin Viruet.

      Duran was able to carry his punching power from the lightweight to the super middleweight where he was able to knock out among others Monroe Brook Pipino Cuevas and Davey Moore and constantly threatened the likes of Adolfo Viruet Carlos Palomino, Sugar Ray Leonard ( in their first fight ), Wilfred Benitez, Iran Barkley, among prominent opponents.

      Overall Duran has 70 KOs in his 103 career wins.

      Pacquiao scored mostly his KOs at lighter weights ( flyweight through the lightweight ). He has KOd or stopped Oscar de la Hoya, Ricky Hatton and Miguel Cotto coming up from the lightweight but has had to settle for decisions against his last four opponents at welterweight and above ( Clottey, Margarito, Mosley and Marquez ).

      Overall Pacquiao has 38 KOs in his current 54 wins but most of those KOs came at 130 lbs. and below.and against lesser known opponents.

      I’d take Pep. Pep went 62-0 before his first loss and only lost one of his first 136. In my opinion he is right up there with the p4p greats. Watching films of his fights I am always dazzled by his footwork, he moved with the grace and speed of a dancer, his movement and defense seemed effortless, and nearly all of his filmed fights are of a past prime Pep, so imagine what he was like at his absolute best! Pep wasn’t a KO artist, although he did KO 65 of his opponents, but he was defensively one of the best. It was said he once won a round without throwing a punch, this is disputed but the fact that boxing fans would even entertain such a story show how good he was. In 1947 Pep was involved in a plane crash and broke nearly every bone in his body, he was told he would never box again but regained the featherweight title and fought for another 18 years.
      Arguello too was great, he lost only eight of 90 fights, many of them at the tail end of his career, he was a big puncher with a great fighting heart and he defeated such men as Ruben Olivares, Jim Watt, Cornelius Boza-Edwards, Ray Mancini, Bobby Chacon, Alfredo Escelera, Ernesto Marcel etc. However I think although he would give Pep a tough fight Pep would win with his great boxing skills.
      Pep UD15.

      Rocky Lockridge fought and lost to Juan La Porte (2nd round KO ) and twice on points to Eusebio Pedroza in the featherweight ( and Wilfredo Gomez and Julio Cesar Chavez in the jr. lightweight). Alexis never lost another fight in the featherweight after losing to another featherweight great in Ernesto Marcel in a title fight. Alexis never was downed much less stopped in the 126 pounds class during his reign as world champion. His right delivered downwards on crouching opponents had spelled doom for many of them. Lockridge with his notorious china chin would have been another candidate, nay victim of the ponderous Stilleto Man.

      1- Alexis Arguello- The tall, lanky Nicaraguan with one punch power, a fantastic body attack, consumate boxing skills and a style that broke you down over a long grueling fight or in the early rounds, he was a first class boxer puncher. He started out as a skinny, tall featherweight whose first big wins came against Jose Legra and Kid Pascaulito, lost his first title bid against Ernesto Marcel who retires after the bout, came back from behind to stop Ruben Olivares for the title. He defended it against the likes of good guys like Royal Kobayashi and Godfrey Stevens. He moved up to take the title from the slick and brave Alfredo Escalera in two bloody and brutal fights, both of which he won by KO. His legendary title run in this division consists of wins over top guys Bobby Chacon in a fight that he was behind before the stoppage, a beating delivered to the tough, free swinging Rafael “Bazooka” Limon, a razor thin fight up until the stoppage against the talented, smart boxing Ruben Castillo and a knockout of the Filipino counter puncher Rolando Navarrete. He moved up to stop the talented southpaw banger Cornelius Boza-Edwards, almost lose to the smooth and tough southpaw Jose Luis Ramirez, win the title from the conservative boxing Jim Watt, stop the relentless Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini and the Hawiian southpaw boxer-puncher Andi Ganigan with a body shot. Moved up to find a title in a fourth divison knocking out Kevin Rooney, and after that engaged in one of the best fights ever against the absolutely relentless Aaron Pryor where he was stopped in the late rounds. Took a one sided beating from Pryor in the rematch and his last big win came against the talented ex-champion Billy Costello.

      2- Jose Napoles- The best Cuban pro ever in my opinion, a smooth counter puncher with one punch power in both hands and a slick defense. A monster at Lightweight an Jr. Welterweight, with his best win in these divisions are over the likes of guys like Eddie Perkins and Aldolph Pruitt. Moved up to Welterweight and completely outclassed the highly touted champion Curtis Cokes, stopping him twice, lost most of his speed early into his title reign but that didn’t stop him, fought a faded Emile Griffith in Emile’s first fight at the 147 in 4 years, beat a host of top contenders including the likes of Ernie “Indian Red” Lopez 2X, Billy Backus (losing the title on cuts and coming back to destroy Backus), Adolph Pruitt again, Hedgemon Lewis, and Clyde Gray. Moved up to Middleweight in an attempt to take the title from Carlos Monzon and was destroyed. Moved back down to Welterweight, beat Lewis again, fought two close fights with the tough, exciting Armando Muniz and eventually lost the title to John H Stracey and retired.

      3- Carlos Monzon- Exemplified how Argentiens could be tough and rugged all the while have a cute boxing style at the same time. A big Middleweight with big power and classy boxing skills along with legendary durability. Had a tough draw against one of Philidelphia’s finest in the rugged Bennie Briscoe, won the title against Nino Benvenuti and beat him in the rematch, became the second man and last to stop the great Emile Griffith and fought many more top contenders of the day. Beat Jean-Claude Boutierr 2X, fought Griffith to a close, clear decision, apart from almost being knocked out in the 9th round I believe dominated Bennie Briscoe, destroyed an aged Napoles and ended hs career with two big wins over the murderous punching Colombian Rodrigo Valdez.

      4- Roberto Duran- What can be said about the one consider the greatest lightweight of all time? He was a durable, agressive fighter who was great at initiating a brawl and finding openings and exploiting them with his countering skills. Early in his career was regarded as a hot prospect and he came into his fight with Buchanan with a record of 26-0 with 21 knockouts and those wins came over future titlist Ernesto Marcel, the extremely tough Angel Robinson Garcia, and the strong Hiryoshi Kobayashi. A tough fight with the Champion Buchanan and ended up stopping him with a low blow but the ref did not call it. Soon after was knocked down and beaten in a close decision by the brilliant boxer-puncher Esteban De Jesus in a non-title match. Beat talented guys like Hector Thompson and “Guts” Ishimatsu before beating De Jesus for the first time. Other notable fights at 135 were against Lou Bizzarro, Edwin Viuret, and Ray Lampkin. He then moved up and scored wins over journeymen Monroe Brooks, fringe contender Jimmy Heair before decisioning former champion Carlos Palamino in a one sided fight. Split two fights with Ray Leonard (quitting in the second fight) came back and scored wins over Pipino Cuevas and Davey Moore back to back. Went up to Middleweight for a try at Marvin Hagler’s title, lost a decision and lost his Jr. Middleweight belt to Tommy Hearns by KO in 2. Lost a decision to the tough Robbie Sims and it seemed like his best was past it, but not before turning in one of his best performances ever and having one of the best fights ever against Iran Barkley. After that he lost the title to Leonard in the rubber match, fought on inconsistently having trouble with weight and age before retiring in 2001.

      5- Eder Jofre- One of the most brilliant fighters I have ever seen, a technical outstanding boxer-puncher who fought out of a semi-crouch which illustrated great jab, an extremely heavy right and a perfectly timed left hook, along with great infighting skills and a slick defense, not to mention a lot of speed. Broke into the West Coast scene with an outstanding fight and KO over the talented Mexican Jose Medel, fought a string of contenders including Eloy Sanchez, Johnny Caldwell, another win over Medel and Bernando Caballero. Came into his fight with the great Japanese fighter Fighting Harada weight drained, was outworked and nearly stopped in the first half of the fight, on almost shot legs pressed the action and almost had Harada out of there in the second half of the fight only to lose a split decision. Lost in the rematch to Harada in another great fight, retired, came back at Featherweight to win his last 25 fights, including a close win over Jose Legra and a knockout of the great Vincente Salvidar.

      My favorite is Alexis Arguello.

  • If Henry Armstrong Had Won The Middleweight Title, Would You Consider Him The Greatest Fighter Ever? If Armstrong had beaten Ceferino Garcia in 1940, he would’ve held almost half of the world titles in existence. I think in most boxing circles, Armstrong makes a strong case for the second greatest fighter ever, right behind Robinson. If he had won this fourth title, (as many people already argue he should have won that fight) and actually defended it a few times, would you consider him the greatest fighter ever? (i.e. greater than Ray Robinson, if you don’t already think so)

    • Curator says:

      There are valid cases for all five champions.

      The same could be said about Sam Langford if he had fought for the title from Lightweight to Heavyweight and considering he either beat these champions or was denied the opportunity to fight for the title he would be considered the greatest fighter of all time. He could have been the first five time divisional champion. A remarkable performance.

      Mickey Walker beat the former Light Heavyweight Champion Maxie Rosenbloom when was no longer champion at that time and Heavyweight Champion Jack Sharkey. An an amazing statistic.

      Sugar Ray Robinson beat Marty Servo, Fritzie Zivic and Lightweight Champion Sammy Angott before he won the Welterweight Championship. What if he did fight and capture the Light Heavyweight Championship what would have happened then.

      Roberto Duran beat Ernesto Marcel the Featherweight Champion who beat Alexis Arguello when he was fighting as a Featherweight.
      What if Roy Jones competed at welterweight and won that division. Wouldn’t that be amazing.

      Its things like that, that make you wonder what if this happened, and yes it does get you wondering about how things could have turned out.

      I definitely consider him to be one of the greatest fighters of all time and his record and achievements especially winning and holding three titles simultaneously and defending the Welterweight title a record 19 times as an amazing performance.
