    Looking for lists on the best P4P boxers in each decade, based on your own criteria.

    This Survey will cover 13 total decades:
    I. 1890s
    II. 1900s
    III. 1910s
    IV. 1920s
    V. 1930s
    VI. 1940s
    VII. 1950s
    VIII. 1960s
    IX 1970s
    X. 1980s
    XI. 1990s
    XII. 2000s
    XIII. 2010s

    RULES
    1. List the FULL first name and FULL last name in sequential order. NO TIES.

    2. You do NOT have to participate in every decade. Only participate in 1, or go for all 13 if you feel you're knowledgable about them all, or anywhere in between. Only make submissions for the decades you feel comfortable making lists for.
    ***PLEASE DO NOT FEEL OBLIGATED TO DO EVERY DECADE


    3. List UP TO 25 Boxers in each decade. You need to list at LEAST 10, but you can stretch it as far as 25.

    MAXIMUM = 25
    MINIMUM = 10


    4. Professional Boxers, based on their performances and accomplishments from (for example):
    Jan 1, 1930 through Dec, 31, 1939
    Jan 1, 1990 through Dec 31, 1999
    etc


    If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask.

    I’m still recovering from the last one but back to the grind I guess :lol:.

    Lol but In all seriousness though sounds like a cool idea. I’ll work on my list and let you know when I’m done editing.

    Btw is it ok if I do 10 for some and 25 for others? As my knowledge of the pre 1930s boxers isn’t great.

    ABSOLUTELY!

    Feel free to list anywhere between 10 and 25 boxers for whichever decades you feel comfortable. It can be 10 in all, 10 in some, 25 in some, or like 17 or whatever. Just as long as it's a minimum of 10 for the ones you do make lists for.

    If you can only come up with 8 names for the 19xx's, just skip that one.

    The 1940s has the best top 4 of any decade - arguably four of the best 10 fighters that ever lived in one decade and three of those 4 turned pro in 1940: Robinson, Charles, Pep and Louis.

    :lol:

    I'm a numbers dork. I've always loved statistics, spreadsheets, and numberical breakdowns.

    Indeed, one of the reasons I began this immediately after closing the previous survey, is simply because I love that final moment when I do my final sort and the results are revealed.

    I'm going to break this down into a 14 or 15 part series, with 13 mini episodes, and 1 or 2 additional ones.
