    I haven't even thought about the ups and downs yet. To be honest it's a pretty shitty list. They got the first three right.

    Pep should be better than 19th, Armstrong and Duran better than Mayweather and Marciano.

    Duran would slot in at number 4. Ranks ahead of Leonard,Marciano and Mayweather.

    pac did a shitload but i'll always wonder if his bigger opponents sold out and if he was on roids.

    I'm betting yes to both.

    Pacquiao the same size as Henry Armstrong and it would be hard to pick between the two.

    I don't know....I saw an Oscar, cotto, fraudburrito, who should have beaten him easily. Also, when Clottey hit him to the body, pac screamed like a girl and clottey just stopped throwing punches for no reason.

    Generally, the heavyweights are ranked too high.

    Chavez, Hagler, Pacquiao - ranked below heavyweights with a only a fraction of their accomplishments.

    Monzon and Lopez needs to be in there.

    Lennox Lewis ranked WAY too high.

    LL @ #9 all time ? dayum...generous.
    but out all together ? harsh.

    if you rank tyson #17 and dont even rank holyfield then whats the justifcation for top 10 all time ? doesnt seem very logical to me.

    as a floyd hater i dont know if i can objectively say hes too high. so i'll let other decide. i find it hard to believe that hes rated higher than duran but how much does me being a duran fan affect that and how much does no mas affect that. i dont know.
    no monzon or lopez as mentioned is a bit ludicrous.

    agree with mark, pre modern era and HW's ranked too high.

    The no mas isn't that big a deal to me. He had already beaten Leonard. He didn't quit like rigondeaux or victor ortiz.

    No Lopez according to kinich and kimba. Too small they said.

    I’m sure you’re being sarcastic, but curious to know why you wouldn’t rate finito up there.

    Because he weighed 105-108.

    a guy like finito would beat anyone at any weight lb x lb.
