Not by a long shot. I must've missed a large amount of fighters worthy of mention. I'm just too lazy to go over them right now because it took me long enough to come up with that list.

i still don't think anyone has come up with a suitable top 5 of the past decade. after floyd, bhop and pacman there is a variety of choices from barrera, morales, lewis even tito. but all of those choices are highly questionable, lewis being the best of that group but with only 5 yrs of activity. barrera peaked at begining of decade and had some bad losses as well, morales peaked at similar time and beat pacman too but should be just short of the top 5. i really think winky is a better choice than morales. anyone have some thoughts on this past decade.
