I would say that as initially our heritage was english based, and as we all know they are the weakest country in terms of sporting talent/boxing etc per capita in the world. As we grow and develop our own identity, also with greater multi cultural influences this is changing.
IMO there are about 5-10 Australian boxers from the past that should figure in the top 100 atg, certainly above the likes of Lewis and calzaghe, who really both where not warranting of an AUS top 20 let along ATG status

If you do not know atleast 10 then you must not be much of a boxing historian or indeed never researched or followed Australian boxing. Please review your error and get back to me.

Interestingly England only have 3 boxers in the top 100, the highest being Lennox Lewis at a very generous 42. Joe Calzaghe not in the top 100, sounds about right

No disagreements there, but you wouldn't have Fenech in also?

Gee if Fenech got the decision against Nelson and then retired i would have him in top 100............ pity it is never that easy.

I rate Lennox Lewis highly, but no:42 is a bit high............ maybe 75-100 range.
