Benn
Froch
Eubanks
Calzaghe
Reid

That's top 5

Reid and Calzaghe are interchangeable.

Reid got robbed against ottke and Calzaghe, if he'd gotten the deserved decision then calzaghe wouldn't be unbeaten and probably wouldn't make top 10

That's not the be all and end all though. Benn's win over G-Man>Collins' wins over Benn.

There was a poll in the general the other week, whos greater Froch or Calzaghe, and like 85% voted for Froch

yet in here, i think most would agree it's Calzaghe

Why the discrepancy?

I presume the yanks thought that Calzaghe was looked after and didn't fight the top guys in his division until later on in his career whereas Froch fights anyone anywhere which is what the Americans like. Ability wise Calzaghe was the best but what he actually achieved compared to his ability was nothing. The guy should of been undisputed super middleweight champion of the world 5 years before he was and then should of taken all comers at 175 but for some reason didn't want to. His 0 was too important to him.

I wouldn't have Froch above Benn personally.

Even though McClellan has become overrated as a result of what happened to him, he'd have slayed opponents like Bute and Abraham in brutal fashion.

Bute would have been gone inside a round.

Froch doesn't have that level of win on his record. Though on the flipside he wasn't outboxed x2 by a fighter like Malinga....

I don't think that version of Mclellan was quite 100% tbh, he had pre-existing brain damage from the Jackson wars.

I could honestly see a guy like Pascal beating that mclellan, strong, iron chinned tough guy who can bang a bit, Mclellan was an accident waiting to happen sadly

That is said with nearly 20 years of hindsight...

The percentage pick pre fight was McClellan inside three, it was at the time an extraordinary victory. And that should be factored in when considering the context of the win now.

well yeah but Froch was a heavy underdog against Bute too.

i'm not saying it wasn't a good performance, just taking into account all the factors.
