This absolutely boggles my mind. I just can't get my brain around this type of thing. Who would actually sit down and document a list of anything past maybe number ten at the most? What criteria do they use, and don't the lines blur after a while? I mean seriously, is there any REAL distinction between a number 23 heavyweight and a number 31? Does it even matter?

Do any of you seriously do this? Sit down and write out you top 100 all-time lists and weigh number 79 against number 55? That's just amazing to me.
I don't mean to be an a****, but you are right. I have always wonder how they do it.

I can try but... that is the most that I can do...

Let me try again..... the best at 135 are.... ..... In not particular order..


Esteban de Jesus,
Barney Ross
Roberto Duran
Ken Buchanan
Alexis Arguello...

.........I hate this, but I forgot the rest...... sorry. Does my ranking sound right?
