I am presuming that this is for an ingame team, so I would say that Hitmonlee is.

It has great attack and speed and a decent sp. def and is the easiest found, as it is obtained after beating the fighting dojo. I would have recommended Heracross, but it is found after beating the champion and Machamp is only available if you can trade.

Hitmonlee is a bro. Too bad it doesn't get Blaze Kick in FRLG.
Even if it did, it'd be awful for it, since all fire moves were special up to 3rd gen.
Oh shoot, I forgot about that detail.
Lots of people tend to it seems lol xD I only remember because 3rd gen was my childhood.
Makes sense — my first game was Diamond.
Exactly what I was thinking! (About the actual answer not the other comments).

Hmmm, I would say Heracross is the best in my opinion but you can only obtain it very far into the game. If you want a good fighting type faster I would head after Hitmonlee. No you can't get Riolu sorry

This answer doesn't contribute a lot of new information, so it's better to add it as a comment.

Machamp is the best non-legendary Fighting type Pokemon out there, but is it only obtainable through trade. Machoke is still a good choice, but you might prefer Hitmonlee since it is given to you for free by the Fighting Dojo and has very good speed and movepools.

There is no fighting type legendary in FRLG.
