As in Calzaghe? I think its because hes one of the 10 best boxers in the world irrespective of weight class.

The only argument to take Calzaghe out of the top 10 is his age.

OH GOD....BLAH BLAH BLAH America sucks BLAH BLAH BLAH (another anti american rant from a european....contradiction at its finest)!!!

Listen, I have Calzaghe at 3....because he belongs at 3....no higher. He has had a great run vs subpar competition. He has dominated most of the people he has fought (tho again, the level of that comp was far lower than it ever should have been). He is greatly skilled and is a fun fighter to watch.

He should definately be top10 in everyones list....no doubt about that.

If we count the number of Europeans listed in lists of the top 100 ATGs it is quite clear an extreme level of bias exists.

Calzaghe - realistically he'll probably drop out of the top 3 in the next twelve months, due to age. Although from 2000 to 2006 he was arguably number one, possibly 2nd behind Roy Jones for a while.

Now we all know I love Calzaghe, but he has earned his position....bad and good.

Surely you can place Calzaghe above Paul Williams based on achievements?
