I would be interested to see yours (which i'm betting will be just as controversial as PP's).

I'd be curious to hear your views on this, and I'd also be curious to know where you rank Lennox on your top 10 heavyweight list.

Number's 5 through 10 were accidentally included there from itrymariti's top 5 most hated list.

Sure you would. Those divisions don't date back that far.

In any case, just wanted to note that your prediction about diminishing returns as we went down the weight classes played out. With each new survey, the number of participants decreased.

I suspect already that it will go back up for this one.

Back to topic, I'm not sure if I'm happy with my own list.

I was happy with every other list I made, and I think I only tweaked two of my lists after first posting them (the heavyweights and the flyweights).

These lists seem repetitive here, and I guess that was the case for all of them to some extent, but with a P4P list I was expecting a bit more variety.

I still maintain a guy like Hagler often gets penalized on these sorts of lists, because he spent his entire career at one weight class.

But the way I see it, I'm not really sure whether bonus points should be deserved for succeeding in multiple weight classes due to the traditional textbook definition of what P4P means.

At the same time, I was reluctant to include any heavyweights on my list which kind of goes against my prior point.

I need to give this more thought. I may radically change my list.

The weight issue breaks down like this for me: it's much harder to beat a great fighter who is naturally bigger than than it is to beat a great fighter who is the same size. The harder it is to beat the men you beat, the better you are. The more you do the greater you become. So yeah, beating MW's when you are a middleweight is less impressive than beating a light-heavyweight when you are a middleweight. And the rankings are going to reflect that.

I imagine PowerPunchers would be almost identical to mine, with the exclusion of Pacquiao and Sanchez and the inclusion of Charles and Moore

Janitor's wont include anybody post-1930 with the exception of SRR

That's a fair take, but doesn't this violate the spirit of the original meaning of the term "pound for pound"?
