That is a tough list...

Some others to be considered:
James Toney
Kostya Tszyu
Tim Austin
Too Sharp?

Agreed about Kostya and Toney..They need to be on the list..I hate to say it but I think I might have to replace Barrera and Morales with Tsyzu and Toney..I like Morales and Barrera a lot but I think Toney and Tsyzu had better skill levels..Barrera did have a insane amount of skill too though..Same with Morales but I give the skill edge to Barrera..

I guess it all depends on how you look at it!

25 years from now when we Bring up the top fighters from this era, people will say Felix Trinidad and Oscar De La Hoya before they say Shane Mosley, Barrera, or Morales!

Now, determining who were the better fighters will differ... Hardcore fans will say guys like Morales, Barrera, and Mosley while casual fans will say De La Hoya and Trinidad!

Oh Chavez definitely deserves to be there....Not sure where to place him though


Chavez was at his best before the fighters that were mentioned were evem champs same goes for Sweet Pea but if we were to include them in this era
Chavez, Sweet Pea, Holyfield, Jones and Hopkins belong at the top.

Actually when Chavez and Sweet Pea were at there complete best most of the guys mentioned weren't even pros yet.

Different era's for those guys in my opinion.

ALthough they weren't in their best weight or their prime years for the fight..Whtiaker vs. Chavez is a MUST WATCH for any young pupil or true hardcore fan of the game..the master of pressure fighting vs. the slickest boxer since Willie Pep. That fight was one of the best fights of the 90's.

Good Fight, But a major Robbery! I felt Whitaker won 8 rounds!
