Think Id have Eubank at 1,Hated him at the time, but now appreciate his amazing talent!

Also on his day Benn was unbeatable, tough seperating top 3 imo

You gotta have Eubank and Benn #1 and #2, for the Watson, Rocchigiani and McClellan wins. Then Calzaghe. Then a huge gap, seeing as Watson and Graham hardly fought at the weight.

Carl Froch would be next. Then a prime Henry Wharton. I thought Woodhall was better than Reid, but Dean Francis was better than both but didn't claim a world title with his career cut through shoulder issues and other stuff.

Wasn't Piper more of a light-heavy?

Id swap places with these 2. Reid is ahead of Froch only just. One more big win against maybe AA then i put Carl above him.

Good shout on Francis, forgot about him.

I think you have to have Calzaghe #1 IMO.

Calzaghe was a career 168 fighter, more defences and unified the title.

He has to be number 1, in fact the Ring have him as their number 1.
