Default Brit Forum Top 100

Following Box News impressive effort of compiling a Top 100 boxers of all time. I though it might be worthwhile trying to do a Current top 100.


I have split the list into 5 pools to try and make things easy.


The first task is to decide if any fighters needs to move up or down in the pools. the 2nd is to cut anyone out and settle on a top 100.


Then we can start running through each section to finalise it.


NO! Tony Bellew cannot be on your top 100.

Fair play if you see this through.

Reckon it'll take a lot of work.

Sturm should be rated higher than a lot of pot 4 fighters.

Really?

Sturm cannot win a fight outside of his own postcode.

I always find these things almost impossible to work out a criteria for. Should you be looking into this from a fighters most recent fights or their career over all. For example Mayweather is at the top even though he has had one fight in over a year against Victor Ortiz but when you put in his career work you can see why he is top. In pot three you have Sonny Jaro who from what I can remember has lost every time he has stepped up apart from his recent win over Pong and he is higher than people with careers much better than him like Soto who hasn't been in a really relevant fight since he beat Antillion.

Good work for anyone who gives a list of the top 100 but I think the criteria should be a bit clearer on what we are looking for.

1. Marquez
2. Mayweather
3. Pacquiao

After that it's a wash between Martinez, Ward, Wlad and Donaire for the next few spots.

A quick attempt at a top 20:

1. Floyd Mayweather
2. Manny Pacquiao
3. Juan Manuel Marquez
4. Nonito Donaire
5. Andre Ward
6. Sergio Martinez
7. Wladimir Klitschko
8. Tim Bradley
9. Yuriorkis Gamboa
10. Anselmo Moreno
11. Abner Mares
12. Vitali Klitschko
13. Miguel Cotto
14. Lucian Bute
15. Bernard Hopkins
16. Toshiaki Nishioka
17. Orlando Salido
18. Roman Gonzalez
19. Brian Viloria
20. Jean Pascal

It's very hard to do just a top 20, so I can only imagine the difficulty in doing 100. Plus, people have different criteria's and that'd only make things more complicated.

Nice list

As you say it can be very hard to compile a list like that, especially of 100 . I think the top 8 there are spot on, from 8-20 is what I find difficulty with doing but I wouldn;t argue much with what you have there.
