Thumbs up Who is the best Australian Boxer (current)

Okay, this is a poll to find out who would be considered the best boxer (talent wise) in Australia. The list is of current fighters (K.Tszyu hasn't officially retired) who have challenged, are about to challenge or are former world champions. I have added Billy Dib as an exception as I think he will be on the list very soon in his own right.

IMO, in terms of pure talent (not what he says), Mundine would be on top, but that's only my opinion. Love to see what others think.

I am not an Aussie, but although he did lose his last fight Darchinan has class, and class will always last over form, he will rebound and rebound strong IMO.

I picked Choc, but based on his eye recovering. Katsidis hasn't faced any where near the level of opponent that Choc has, so it is really far to early to call.

I picked Kat just in front of Choc and Vic and a fair way to the rest imo..............however, if Greeny beat Tarver then a top 3 spot for him beckons.

Sorry but I don't follow you. He beat Echols, Green and Soliman, the last two being in the Ring top 5 in their respective divisions at the time. He lost to Kessler, but made a good account of himself, as with Ottke also, both of whom were top fighters. In the Ottke fight he was very in experienced. The Siaca loss was very embarrassing, but it was a narrow one, and he has proved himself since then.
