JANITOR I THOUGHT U SAID SPINKS WAS A LOCK FOR TOP 5, AND UR LIST IS SO BIASED TOWARDS OLD GUYS. Saad, qawi, and galindez should be in everyones top 20.

Saad and Galindez belong in the top ten. Disagree about Braxton.

Default Re: Top 20 Lightheavyweights Of All Time

1. Ezzard Charles
2. Archie Moore
3. Sam Langford
4. Michael Spinks
5. Tommy Loughran
6. Bob Foster
7. Gene Tunney
8. Harold Johnson
9. Billy Conn
10. Jimmy Bivens
11. Maxie Rosenbloom
12. Matthew Saad Muhammad
13. Jack Delaney
14. Victor Galindez
15. Dwight Muhammad Qawi
16. Jack Dillon
17. John Henry Lewis
18. Joey Maxim
19. Virgil Hill
20. Batting Levinsky

Quick Note: I don't include fighters who are currently active at the weight on the list, so that's why Jones isn't included. As of right now, I would more than likely place him anywhere from #8-#11, depending on my mood at the time.

What criteria do you use? What has DM done to deserve such a high ranking? Sure, he had a nice title reign, but his opponents were also poor, some old-timers perhaps didnīt have a long title reign or so, but beat a lot more and much better fighter...

Jones is a miracle. There is an argument that he would have a better chance of beating everyone else on that list than anyone else would...i'd be on the other side of that argument, actually, but if you're into head to head and see him as the best, why not have him at #1?
