The more I look at it, the more harvey is going to get in my list. I'm at 8/9 and starting to struggle.

Anyone considering Howard Eastman for the bottom end of the list?

This is my shortlist so far (one's in bold are a lock for the 10):

Randy Turpin
Alan Minter
Terry Downes
Bob Fitzsimmons
Tony Sibson
Herol Graham
George Gardner

Nigel Benn
Chris Eubank
Chris Pyatt
Len Harvey
Jock McAvoy
Howard Eastman

They're in particular order yet

This is Boxrec's top 25...... I'd have thought Kaylor would be in the top 25, Watson not being doesn't surprise me with their method of scoring, but a stoppage win over Benn and outclassing Eubank in the rematch would put him in there pretty easily I'd say.

They've put Watson at SMW I think.

Kaylor and Watson are now on the shortlist but I don't think Kaylor will make the cut

Do you know how they score their rankings? A lot of the time they seem to favour shorter careers with few losses over longer ones with more loses.

No George Gardner? He has some quality wins, also went 20 with Jack Johnson despite weighing no more than 155.

Benn over Eubank? I have always thought that Eubank had the better middleweight record than Benn, but Benn had the better record overall.

I don't know enough about the guy as regards what fights were at middleweight so I left him out. I'll do a little more digging, it won't be the end of the world to lose one off the bottom of the list.

Eubank won H2H but Benn has deWitt, Barkley and Sims.
