As WAR said their ranking is still up in the air, depending on what eventuates with other fighters they've fought that are still active.

Barrera will make my top 130 I'm sure when I decide to put him in the list so rest easy.




































Though Morales may be above him

Ignore me mate. I'm full of shit at this time of night.

Good effort. I could never dedicate myself to such an assignment.

Haha, it's all good mate. My list is far from perfect, I'll admit that. And there's plenty of bias, oversights and plain old errors in there which I'm sure people will pick me up on. It's good for discussion if nothing else tho.

Nice effort SS, I've printed it out for closer perusal at a slow day at work.

Ricardo Lopez is a good candidate for this one, as I know more then a few here think very highly of him.

How about Jimmy Wilde?

Khaosai Galaxy? Khaokor Galaxy?
Are you going on the criteria of an opponent who was great at the time,or a great name who was past it ? If it's the latter scenario,I'd say Larry Holmes,as Muhammad Ali was n't even a shadow of his great self.

Jofre, the most overrated fighter. His resume is not top 50 material

hahaha! Oh man. Thanks. I was really confused. Im at the end of an all nighter studying and trying to wind down from a crazy caffeine high.

I even went back over McCallum's resume, like, what are they talking about? And I know you guys know your stuff in the classic forum.
