Great posts but this list is way off!! I think Robinson,Armstrong and Ali are the only ones that are top 10 PFP with Louis and Hagler at the door. Mayweathers career is not complete yet so i wouldnt quite put him there if he can beat Pac yey, But there are like 7 guys missing from that list.
Let me give my opinion on where those 10 should be ranked.
Hagler between 10-15
Mayweather around 15?
Foreman around 40
Delahoya around 25
Jones between 15-20
Marciano between 30-40
Ali top 5
Louis between 10-15
Armstrong arguably 1 definitly top3
Robinson 1 or 2
0

Take out Marvlin Hagler, Floyd Mayweather, George Foreman, Oscar De La Hoya, Roy Jones, Rocky Marciano and it's a decent list.

It's only when you actually attempt a top 100 list, being fair to fighters of all divisions and eras, that you realise how many there are. George Foreman, for instance, will end up rating at about #65 on my list when it's done.

Wherever you put Foreman, Marciano must be ranked lower.

Where would he be on your Heavyweight list bud? I have him at 5.

Oh, and I love his highlight reel of Armstrong - the one that shows him jumping rope and then throwing two punches at someone.

I see what your talking about cause in a HTH at Heavy Foreman would smoke Marciano. But if you consider that Marciano was actually a cruiserweight and rate him as such he is top 15 easy. Where as Foreman is no where close to that.

I think Oscar De La Hoya is by far the worst choice on that list.

Foreman, Mayweather are very bad too.
