1980-1989. Irrespective of what went before or after the decade.
Excellent list.

I tried when doing mine, to think of it being the the 1st January 1990...

As time has gone by, I think I would of put Chavez higher up, Pryor lower and maybe Fenech a bit higher. Plus my loathing for Leonard has grown and grown.

Although I do like doing these top 100 lists, I can understand the argument about after top 30 or so it is a bit of a mere mentions list, and the numbers against the fighters names should be taken with a large pinch of salt (Minter #62; what **** was I on?).

But Minter a side, I like this list and IMO no fighter is more than 15/20 places above or below where they should be; which for a top 100 list is good going!

I am a pretentious ****er sometimes
