Would anyone seriously pick Froch to win in a rematch?
Yeah I would.

Dirrell gasses.

Dirrells chin is a serious question mark. Took some good shots against AA, but he loves throwing himself to the ground when the going gets tough; He has the aura of a vulnerable fighter.

You're best off just making your own rankings, everything is flawed in one way or another. Personally, I feel he is in the top 3 at 168

Shane Mosley isn't in the welterweight rankings because Boxrec only rank active fighters and consider anyone who hasn't fought for 12 months to be inactive. Perfectly justifiable imo and I use the same criteria in my personal rankings.

How is it disrespectful? You have to have some form of cut off if you're considering 'active' fighters, there's is 12 months. Perfectly reasonable.

I would imagine he would be ranked in the top five at welterweight win or lose.
