Default Do you currently have Calzaghe or Buchanan higher in your British ATG list?

Do you currently have Calzaghe or Buchanan higher in your British ATG list?



PS yes I know I've accidentally spelt it Buchanon, not Buchanan in the poll option.


Anyways..... take your pick...

Why would anyone have Ken higher exactly?

Because he tried hard against Duran?

I think Calzaghes record has taken a huge hit in recent times.

It certainly has but, that said, I think his Ring Championship successes at 168 and 175 judge edge it for me. (But only just).

I think Calzaghe's legacy is going to be based almost soley on those two belts than anything else. Due to Mikkell Kessler's defeat to Andre Ward, Roy Jone's capitulation to Danny Green and Jeff Lacy's inability to win more than a round against Jones his reputation has taken a bit of a beating but, that said, Hopkins' performance against Pavlik and the fact that he, Hopkins, could probably still beat most light-heavyweights in the world, has made Joe Calzaghe's victory over him even more impressive.

Wilde should be top five, but due to looking poor on film and having no 'notable' wins from where I'm standing, he doesn't make it. If I was gonna rank him on a hunch, he'd be top 3 probably.

Wilde has some pretty solid names in Tancy Lee and Zulu Kid are teh two straight of the top of my head.

Also Fitz a 3 weight world champion beating ATG Jack Dempsey for Middleweight honour, KOing Corbett then winning the LHW title way past his prime pretty solid achievements.

Flea what do you think of Lynch over Buchanan i think they are interchangeable and as great as each other

Agree with points over Lynch and Buchanan.

Wilde; fair play Greg those are some notable names. Slot him in behind Ted Kid Lewis.

Fitz is right up there, those are good wins. I'ev got Buchanan really high but to be fair with a British list, a lot of it is 'what you like' IMO

Just think Lynch and Buchanan have very similar resumes, perhaps Lynch's is deeper but Buchanan's is more consistent, one fact that swings it for me is Lynch never lost hsi title in the ring.

Think it is Wildes dominance of Flkyweight and his consistancy that really makes him great
