    I believe it is different to popular culture's interpretation of Boxing's Mount Rushmore (which would probably be Ali, Tyson, Mayweather and...Rocky haha).

    James Figg, Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Robinson, Manny Pacquiao

    Manny Pacquiao's case:
    1. From ultimate third-world poverty to the Senator of Philippines. Boxing being the medium.
    2. Had a career that span 11 weight classes from where he started. Beating ATG's, HOF's, elite fighters the whole way through whilst they're in good condition.
    3. His historic 2005-2010 run is unlike anything I'll probably ever witness in my lifetime.
    These three combined.

    James Figg is the grandfather of Boxing; Ali is 'The Greatest', transcending the sport; SRR is GOAT.

    i think that says more about Filipinos as voters than it does Pacman. Not that I'm just shitting on them. Donald Trump is our President :eek:

    I think the Mount Rushmore just becomes someones top 4 pound for pound list, which makes it freakin' hard to do, and easy to criticize lol.

    Mine, for example, would be easy to tear apart:

    Harry Greb
    Willie Pep
    Joe Louis
    Sugar Ray Robinson

    Good point, but some names are a LOCK, like Dan Rafael who's too fat to be removed from contention because he's literally stuck. Hey, Hagler I guess 2 spots wasn't big enough for him afterall.

    If it's a top 4 P4P list, for me it would be SRR, Greb, Armstrong, Langford.

    It's hard to say, there's so much footage from his 120 fights, I don't know where to begin!
