I reckon Calzaghe will be the highest ranked British fighter. I'm definitely going to buy it, and then use it to motivate me to finally commit suicide.

Good work though Vano
Floyd has certainly caused a buzz mate. But would Tris allow that? You'll have to find out

I've seen this picture before. Just can't recall where! On page 188 of Bill Paxton's Greb book there's another hospital pic of Harry.

Fitz as #1 candidate, I think he has a sniff yes indeed.

Fitz is just below Duran for me. But in truth, I have absolutely no problem with Langford, Greb, Fitz, Armstrong, Robbo, Duran or Charles being rated as the GOAT.

I honestly feel these are a level above every other fighter to have graced the sport of boxing.

The problem with Fitz ahead of Duran is that Fitz was unquestionably the best middleweight and heavyweight in the world, but also, for a brief spell, the best light-heavyweight in the world, way, way past prime, I mean so old he doesn't even belong in the ring at that point. NP JD is probably the popular choice for p4p #1 all time up until he met Fitz - and Fitz destroyed him. I mean Fitz absolutely buried him. I mean, that fight wasn't competitive at all. It was an embarrassment, a one-sided thrashing so complete as to indicate a wide gulf in class. Fitz out-boxed the greatest pure-boxer to have lived up until that point without breaking sweat.

Furthermore, he is likely the best puncher ever to have drawn breath.

Duran's win over Leonard is astonishing, it's often forgotten how astonishing, but it is posisble that, allowing for the manner of the victory, it wasn't as impressive as what Fitz did to NP JD. And I have to say, I think a one-punch KO victory over the world heavyweight champion by a former lightweight might be the single greatest victory in the history of the sport - I think there is clear daylight between Fitz and Duran, personally.

I am told this was taken just after Greb was involved in a car crash, around 1925.

Thought you's might enjoy it.
thats one tough looking mother ****er. Gargoyle face with a jaw as wide and his forehead and fists so hench they'd touch the walls of Paris Hilton's smelly twat
