Hilarious how the regard of a fighter rests in the hands of incompetent judges. If most think he won, that should be taken into consideration greatly.

I can't believe people who actually count the draw vs. Chavez as an actual draw and not a 9-3 win for Pea. Sick.

1 Pancho Villa Making the Greatest Fly Wilde Quit..nuff said Died at 24
2 Elorde...Beating the great Saddler..Losing to ortiz sure giving up 20 lbs plz

3 Garcia just from the guys hes beaten
4 Manny PAC
5 Luisito Espinosa..What a fighter..never got the credit..very underrated, long lean and powerful...he would have given PAC hell

Note that Elorde changed boxing..he invented the footwork that Ali Popularized. Few people know this. You look at all filipino boxers, they all have the sme style..Manny Pac is one of the few anomalies

I like this list as well as the mention of Espinosa. He doesn't get taked about much. If it were me, I would switch Manny and Ceferino, but either way is fine....Pac still has time to enhance his legacy.

Villa died too young

Where does Penalosa rank? Top 6-7?

Im going with PBF in a SD......just because it seems everyone loves Pryor and i recognize Pryor as the beast he is but Floyd is a beast as well no way does he not do his homework and come in with a fight plan.....at 140 i guess is where you guys are placing the fight i think floyd counters the pressure with pressure. Floys as a very good chin and is just a good a boxer as Pryor if not slightly better and in speed. Floyd's footwork is well above good and i think he could definitely get himself out of trouble. Although its not a wasy fight by no means i think PBF posses the talent to win a SD maybe just maybe even get a UD. Just a different oppinion from the rest.

I'm hearing nothing but good things about Banal...let's hope he doesn't suffer the same fate as Boom Boom when he steps it up in a few years.

I have this feeling that we're looking at the same situation with a different guy. Boom boom is certainly a candidate for worst chin of 2007, last year going to Litzau of course.

You know - I have to give Fraudley the #1 award though for the worst chin of 07.

You were all over Bautista after the 1st round KO loss...

Any early picks for 2008?

Banal is a Blue chip prospect..whilst Rey was hyped for Ponce...most these guys like Donaire, Mayol, Gorres, Conception.. theyre good but they are not blue chips that GBP/Arum keeps a close eye on like Glen Gonzales and Banal

It should have been ruled a knockdown.
