Default Re: Ranking fighters

There's a lot of speculation involved in list making, but it isn't all subjective. I mean, I challenge anyone to tell me Jose Luis Castillo is a better lightweight than Carlos Ortiz, or that Oscar de la Hoya is a better lightweight than Tony Canzoneri. Some points become debateable, others don't.

Provided you have a decent criteria, ranking fighters can be done quite easily. You may ask, "well, what makes your criteria right?", but I don't think people would disagree too much about what fundamentally goes to making a good fighter.

Things like fighting and head to head) ability, resume and level of comp, and longevity are pretty much staples in everyone's thinking.
