Default Re: Top 400 All Time Greats

You will proberbly not find a boxer listed by the International Boxing Research Organisation not on this list ? {they are boxing writers and historians}, apart from a top 20 and 10 just missing the cut, they only list boxers for the 8 traditional weight categories, as well as taking those lists into consideration i also looked at rings annual ratings and unless i have made a mistake i have included every fighter that has been their champion/#1 on more than one occasion,
i have also picked lots of my own selections like Joey Archer, Gerald McClellan, Percy Jones and Nigel Benn most of them are not on any IBRO list and would barely feature in rings annual ratings.
So although posters may disagree with my list, most of the 'all time greats' should be there and although the order is very open to debate it is not me a million miles away
at the top end of the list, from IBRO's own list.
