you only mentioned from late 70s onward, ill add carlos monzon, ray robinson and de la hoya. i dont care wat you guys say, de la hoya won belts in multiple divisions, beat everybody in the 90s, kept boxing breathing during one of its darkest hours, and won a gold medal. he deserves to be up here. and if you dont think so, then you ride floyds dick a little too much.

I've been studying you Professor (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

It took me a while but I got you down cold now, I just won some $$ thanks to you. Your the friend that keeps on giving lol

It's going to take me awhile to go thru this list but got damn man, great list, though I will admit I am biased for a particular fighter on the list(Tyson), but each and everyone of these boxers has done some amazing things inside the ring..and some outside of it as well

Fuck...I have to split this shit up in eras. I opened this thread, with all hopes that it will be 10 fighters or less...I got some work to do with this list. Some of this stuff was before my time, but hell, I'll do my best. Lol

Here is my problem with this list, I like the fighters you named but there are a few fighters that should be added. I think Ali is the greatest of all of them because of his social standing and his political views. Others were just fighters to me. So the way I will rank these fighters are in two parts, what they did inside of the ring and what they did outside the ring especially for boxing. Give me sometime and I will have my list ready.
