I could not care less to agree with your list except that number 45 should be in the number one and the rest will one step down. thumbsup_anim.gif

Nice list. Updated from last year. Pacquiao is now higher. Your last list have him at around 30. Gayweather seemed to be lower now.

sorry dude...Klitschko brothers over Tszyu oh Hellllllll no!

I'm sure he has a plausible explanation for that.
D-MARV
I respect this list beacuase i know it takes a lot of time an effort to compose something like this. I do have one question though... If Mayweather were to beat Pacquiao and Mosley this year, how would that effect this list?
caneman
Good list weather I or anyone else agrees totally or not!!! The fact is til we all make a list like yours, it's hard to knock yours! Good to see Harry Greb so high even he it is a bit high but he tried to fight everyone & did it 60% blind in 1 eye! The guy fought 27 times in one year(1922 I think), all that & he trained on whiskey & whores! He was a crazy mofo & it is said that he threw 200 punches per round as much as 3 rounds in a row which is insane! Props on your list though!
SmartyBeardo
Nice effort.

After a quick scan, Greb and Pep should be switched as well as Manny Sue and Larry Holmes. Hopkins and RJJ should not be in the top fifty. Ray Leonard is way too high. I like Michael Spinks, but 43 of all time? Cotto in the top 200?

Great list overall though.

As a matter fact I think Fritize Zivic, Terry Norris, Nigel Benn, Riddick Bowe, Winky Wright, Michael Carbajal, Rafael Marquez, Naseem Hamed, Miguel Cotto, Ken Norton, Dwight Qawi, Jose Luis Castillo, Diego Corrales, Humberto Gonzalez should ALL be above Klitschko!

I agree.

I have a lot of respect for someone that can make a top 100 list, or even a top 200 list, though I couldn't do one.

I often wonder how many fights of each one guy you need to watch to be able to evaluate them fairly, and for me you would have to see at least 10 or so fights of each fighter. For a top 100, that's probably about 1000 fights. For me I just haven't seen that much of every guy, and I wouldn't feel right saying this guy is that good from only seeing 1 or 2 fights.
I often wonder also how much of 'word of mouth' contributes to lists as well. I always enjoy reading lists, I just couldn't do one because I think I would have to have a quota on how much I have seen of every guy and I just haven't reached that with a lot of fighters.
