You could make a case for Pacquaio to rank over DLH, seriously, DLH is not a top 75 fighter and it is just so ****ing sick that he's thought of universally as such.

Can definitley say that Castillo won by a point or two, can also make just as good a case for Mayweather by a point or two.

But DLH-Mayweather a draw? Learn how to score a fight mate, that was 8-4 or 9-3 Mayweather all day long.

If anyone thinks he's justified in putting Holmes and Holyfield and Spinks for that matter above Lewis, then please, please explain it to me.

-Moore being 10 spots ahead of Charles. Moore obviously had more fights and more wins, but Charles went 3-0 against him at LHW (where Charles had a staggering resume in a relatively small # of fights) when they were in/near their primes, and also Charles was a very good HW champion as well.[/quote]

This boggles my mind also there is no way in hell Moore should be higher than ezzard..Ill even take close next to each other !!!hes the greatest LHW of all time

9-3? Wrong. I had it a draw. I can see 7-5, but 9-3? Jesus Christ.

Michael Spinks?

He's one of the greatest light-heavyweights ever. He fought in one of the best 175 lb. eras in history and never lost at the weight. He beat the Davis brothers, Dwight Qawi, Yaqui Lopez, Marvin Johnson, Eddie Mustafa Muhammad, Murray Sutherland. And then he jumped to heavyweight and twice beat the real champion in Larry Holmes. The first fight was definitely a fair win for Spinks, the rematch on the other hand was a joke.

The relatively low number of fights works against him, as does his pitiful showing against the larger Mike Tyson, but he did an amazing amount of work in just 32 fights. He was also one of the most adaptable fighters ever.

Bomb out the lesser hitters, or box carefully against the powerful guys and swarmers.

DLH is not top 40. Mickey Walker was a hell of a fighter, possibly top 25, but 5 is a bit high. Holyfield is way too low as well, he is top 40 easily.

Also Jofre at 40, and Louis around 30 is far too low as well.

1. Joe Louis
2. Muhammad Ali
3. George Foreman
4. Rocky Marciano
6. Gene Tunney
7. Jack Dempsey
8. Larry Holmes
9. Lennox Lewis
10. Evander Holyfield

These guys could beat any of the remaining 90 on the list.
These are the top ten boxers of all time
