BTW, I just noticed some clown put Freddie Mills in his top 10.
Yeah Charles is ridiculously underrated by a lot of 'experts'.

I don't think Angelo's list is all that bad. The right names are there...Jones though. ...Not good.

What's most interesting to me is how Roy Jones Jr. didn't put himself on his own list.

When I was going down his list, I was saying the same thing to myself. I personally feel Jones just listed 10 of his favorite fighters. Ali was his idle, and he noted several times during his commentary days for HBO that Sanchez was one of his all-time favorites.

This is 1999 remember, I bet he didnt predict what was round the corner.

You should never rate a fighter until he's retired although I am guilty of it as well.

...I don't care what year it was, no way is Jones even remotely close to being a top 10 entrant. He ain't now, and he wasn't in 1999.

My criteria in rating fighters is about 60% resume 30% Ability and 10% longevity.

I agree but he was probably thinking he was ahead of the game and predicting Jones would retire a practicaly unbeaten legend with many more great wins to his record. Theres no other excuse.

Still shocking to me that he didn't list Leonard...he trained him, and Leonard is a genuine top 15-20 level fighter.

...Evander Holyfield at 9 on someone elses list. It boggles the mind.

Didn't SRL dump Dundee post Hagler? I'd bet they are on bad terms at the time of the list.

Yep.

I mean Stevenson in a top 10 P4P?

Mills, Tyson, Marciano, Dempsey, Johnson, Sanchez at 3, Benitez?

I would agree with about 10 names on those lists combined.
