Default who is the greatest of all time? vote.

i would like to see who the consensus goat is (if there is one) on this forum. as far as i can see, there's no poll like this on classic...

i know opinions are constantly in a state of flux, doesn't matter, just vote for your current choice. poll is public.

After a lot of deliberation I think I'm gonna go with Sam Langford. Incredible power, revolutionary technique, durability, a resume consisting of a who's who list of fighters at many different weights, and speed in his prime.

Ironic, that the greatest of champions never held a belt.

did my best to make the poll options as all encompassing as possible, but it seems we already have a vote for 'other'... if you choose that option, could you tell us who your choice is in the thread. thanks!

Tricky one, I kind of vacillate.

Ask me today and I say Sergio Martinez.

Ask me tomorrow and its Nonito Donaire.

Duran is usually ranked higher than Fitz Or Moore. And hes on par with half of the others.

Not by anyone who has read about what Fitz actually did.

i didn't include the 'top nine greats' in the poll options. i included the nine who i felt people could argue are the greatest. it essentially came down to including two of ali, duran, moore and benny leonard. i thought a more obvious case could be made for ali or moore being the goat, than the other two, not because their accomplishments are necessarily greater, but because they are more 'unique'. different people use different criteria for their lists, and i couldn't imagine criteria that make duran the greatest (i could for benny leonard, but someone had to be sacrificed). on the other hand, i found it easier to imagine criteria that would make ali or moore the top fighter. in fact, i'd have duran and benny leonard above ali and moore, but this is simply a vote for number one.

if you think duran, benny leonard, or someone else is the goat, you can select 'other'.

Dempseyyyyy Hoooooook!

Seriously, the fact you even mention Jack as an option for 'GOAT' is absolutely incredulous. He fought bums and old men.
