Yeah, Charles is guaranteed top 10. You should put him at #4 though. Go ahead and put him at #4. It's nice. You'll feel nice, so go ahead and put him at #4.

DO IT!

Okay so I put Charles in -- whose the odd man out? Louis? I hate taking out a guy who reigned over a division like he did!
For me it would be Walker who I would place closer to 15...no disrespect intended.

Charles at #4 is fine. As long as Benny Leonard's #3

Yeah that does say a lot. So above or below Ali? LET'S SETTLE THIS NOW

Just my opinion, and I don't like to say it, but Ali above Louis for his superior wins.

A perfectly good list, My own has only a few variables to yours.

Ali woud place ahead of Louis for me, and JCC would be in top 20.

NO! Not only is Louis greater but he is close to 10 lbs lighter, just to seal it!
