I don't think this is the site for you.
Your views don't match any rationale fight fan, expert, insider or fighter themselves, that I have ever run accorss. A Poll in the Ring from 1997? Got a cover date?
Every ranking I have come accross in the Ring whether it be the top 50 fighters of the past 50 years, in which Ray was #5 or the 80 best from the last 80 years in which Ray was #9 or Detloff's top 20 Most Important fighters of all time, which is different from pound for pound, Ray came in at #15.
The poll here was done by the regulars from the Classic section. Reading a comment such as "Ray would not be in my top 10 list if I ever decided to waist my time on one but I'm sure he'd make it in the top 100 once I started to run dry of names.
Also,Ray Leonard is highly over rated on your list too..
Kinda exposes the type of credibility that you bring to the table. I think it would be safe to say that it is lacking.
Don't waste your time here.
I'm with Cherry on his opinions on your P4P list..Benny Leonard in my opinion is over Duran as well..I do appreciate you takin the time to do it but it was pretty crazy to me as well..Larry Holmes would not be above Joe Louis..I have Joe Louis at #1 at heavyweight..I also would have Archie Moore above Charles at light heavy..Yeah,Charles beat Archie at light heavy but I believe Archie was the better fighter..Archie and Charles is pretty debatable though so I won't call ya out on that one..
