Although to be fair, Calzaghe did show a lot of heart beating the dreaded Evans 'African Warrior' Ashira with just one hand.

They most of them were like sparring sessions for him, if anything they should have kept Willie in good shape and very sharp

Video and boxrec+common sense, the fact there is a rumour he tried to win a round without throwing a punch sums up his opposition -fullstop-

Great fighter, but not very awe-inspiring

You say great - great enough to make an all time top 20 pound for pound list?

Certainly a fighter doesn't have to inspire awe to make a list like this (though Pep inspires something akin to it in me when I see him).

If you knew anything about Pep you'd also know that rumour is false.

I did not say anything about the rumour being true, not even Joe Calzaghe can win a round without throwing a punch (if you count slaps), the fact I called it a rumour suggests I am aware Peps greatest legacy is fraudulent

Common sense would tell anyone who knows anything about boxing, that a person who beats Sandy Sadler, and who was undefeated in their first 62 fights was awesome.

For me Robinson, Duran & Armstrong are dead certs.

I have a big problem with Harry Greb though - have any of you guys seen much footage of him, I doubt there is enough to make a sound judgement on him. Why do you regard Greb so highly?

Would you absolutley insist upon all 10? Which ones do you think are a dead lock for the top ten?

For example, I have Burley on my list but I can't insists upon it (NOT THAT THAT IS HIS FAULT HE WAS CHEATED).
