Benn has the best single win in Mcclellan and probably the best resume in general out of that lot.

Naz, not in terms of the best fighters beaten, but on depth.

I do wish Robinson knocked him the hell out.

Benn has very clearly the better/best win in Mclellan, then he's got Barcley (comeing off recent wins over Hearns - beating him twice eventually - and a Ring fight of the year SD with Duran), De-wit, a draw with Eubank which many think he won...

He went over early on in his career and did it in the States too.

Personally I think Benn has quite clearly the better resume.

How does Hatton rank higher than Haye? Haye surely accomplished more than him..

Has Haye ever held the WBU Title? When it meant something.

I don't rate the Barclay win all that highly for two reasons:

1) He had no business losing against the version of Duran he lost against 2 fights before. And most of all:

2) It was a 1st round KO, which is nearly always a anomaly and certainly is in this case. It's a bigger deal when talking ability than about legacy/resumé, but it still leaves a question mark.

Then again, Barclay was good enough directly after than bout to win titles in 2 different weight classes, so maybe I should rate it highly. Hamed was an expert at catching fighters on the way down (Ingle excepted).

I don't want to openly admit defeat twice in a day, so I'm keeping my order the way it is on the basis of the pure depth of fighters in the top 5 of Hamed's division that he beat.

Hatton beat KT, which eclipses any of DH's wins.

You cannot add Calzaghe to this list because he is a level above the others. If you do you must then add Lewis which means Calzaghe drops to 2.

You cannot add Calzaghe pal. This is a list for fighters who challenge their counterparts whilst they were at their respective peaks.
