What's ridiculous ? I agree, Rahman rates higher.
I don't think he's been a genuine top contender for years though. Not that that's relevant to this discussion.

Purrity was a notch or two below overall, but he had more than just the Wlad Klitschko win. I thought he beat Tommy Morrison, and he beat guys like Jorge Luis Gonzalez and Joe Hipp.
