A 5’4″ lightweight who was renowned for his footwork and excellent chin, Johnny Dundee is one of the winningest boxers of all time. When “newspaper decisions” are included, he also lost almost 70 fights, but he was only knocked out twice.

Dundee fought some of the greatest fighters of all time—including nine fights against the great Benny Leonard, who appears near the top of this list. Dundee went 2-6-1 against Leonard.

Both Bert Sugar and Nat Fleischer were big fans of Dundee’s, with Sugar ranking him 32nd all-time and Fleischer including him in his top five featherweights of all time rankings.
