I went to update my top 200 because i realised after putting up a thread about Ken Buchanan, that i had left Ismael Laguna off the list, also i realised i had not treated Packey McFarland fairly in my original list, i originally placed him inside the top 100, but after reading about him, a top 50 place just above one of his victims Freddie Welsh would be fairer, the
big loser in this reshuffle is Felix Trinidad who i had reservations about when i had him at #80 is now dropped down to #98.
When i drew up a top 200, i had a short list of well over 300 boxers, so i added some more boxers to end up with a nice round number of 400.
The top 100 is in some sort of order,places 100-200 is difficult to categorize and places 200-400 is virtually impossible to rank in order. I admit the lower down the list the less effort has gone into ranking the boxers, if i am missing somebody or i have a 'doubler' or there a rankings that are clearly wrong, let me know and i will change them, all comments welcome.
{things were starting to get so desperate towards the end of the list that if i had a top 500, Antonio Tarver and William Joppy would have been in it.}

I don't have time to give it a once over or the know how. But Hagler is far far far too high.

Compare his 5 best wins to say Joness add that to the fact Jones went up from 154-HW in his career and I would say Jones has to be above. Regardless Hagler is way way too high.

Edit: Calzaghe too

People are always asking on this site, where does such and such a boxer rank ?, plus its nice for myself to try and rate boxers so i have some idea where they stand in comparison to one another.

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.
