Default Harry Greb #33 heavyweight of all time?

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Thoughts on that? And on the list more generally? Some highlights:

#9 Wlad Klitschko
#10 Jersey Joe Walcott
#17 Jimmy Bivins
#49 Jack Dempsey
#54 Billy Miske
#55 Jack Dillon
#131 Barbados Joe Walcott
#328 Audley Harrison (da ****?)

The **** did I just look at?

Why was Walcott rated so low? Because he was so old when he became champ his "peak" years counted for shit? Weeeeird system.

That's the worst list I have ever seen. Archie Moore 9 places in front of Joe Frazier? Jack Johnson at 28!!!!? Jack Dempsey at 50?????

It's a joke, right?

It is rationalized though, the rating is based on how many ranked contenders he beat, where they were ranked and how long he managed to stay unbeaten.
But the system is shit.

It's "good" if you just want to see how fighter a did in his era relatively to fighter b in his era based on a shitty system

But for everything different it's pure shit.

DON'T BE REDICULOUS!!!

this is WHY I argue that lists are IMPOSSIBLE in the first place,

plus fighters should ONLY be ranked at their longest competitive weight, anything Above only adds to their excellence at their overall ranking in their best real weight!

I won't be doing another list until the end of the year. But heavyweights is a possibility. I'd like to destroy flea's mind by doing a flyweight one though.
