    Still debating whether I'm going to release these results as a video, but I'm not sure I have time to do 2 survey videos in a timely fashion, so I may just wind up dropping the final numbers here in the thread in the next day or 2.

    Didn't expect Fury would come this close to Loma, as it looked like the top3 was set pretty early on in the race.
    Usyk and Inoue were runing away with it though, and most of that was before Usyk beat Joshua.

    You have to make this video Rummy, as it is the one I'm waiting for from you since the poll started.

    It's very telling that Usyk rightfully topped the poll in the General but didn't even make an appearance on the one conducted over on the Classic which he should've obviously also topped too. I've long said those circus clowns over on the Classic DKSAB and once again I've been proven right.

    Stick to arguing with each incessantly for the rest of your days over whether Marciano is overrated or not (all seven of you) and leave the real boxing discussion to the big boys

    Rummy not sure this means much because popularity does not necessarily mean the best. Arturo Gatti back in the day would have scored higher than much better fighter. I think if you ran a separate poll on least favourite or hated boxer alongside it you will get interesting results.

    Yeah Olu, it clearly states 'favourite' in the title not 'best'.

    Rummy wasn't claiming a list of the favourite forum fighters was also a list of the best - although clearly there's some cross-over. I put Josh Taylor at the top of my list: He'd just unified all the real belts at 140 in a great fight, at the time the poll was set up. But I don't think he's the best fighter in the world, then or now...

    Never said it does not that he did. Though some make that mistake. Great example of this was back in the day Oscar De La Hoya an excellent boxer puncher, a tough SOB. He was so popular with cross over appeal women especially teenage girls and house wives loved him like boyfriend material or surrogate son etc. However he was never the best and probably not quite an ATG strictly speaking. Now take Floyd Mayweather and the mantra loved by few , feared by many and respected by all is appropriate. He may not have been the most liked, amongst the most hated but an ATG maybe the best ever as he proclaims TBE. All I was trying to say was if we add in a poll of most hated the notoriety factor would draw up some interesting data conclusions to extract.

    Didn't know he was in there until I saw that post, Logan Paul as well :ohno
    The idea that they have 50 and 40 points respectively, probably means 1 poster had them both high up on his list (like 5th and 6th), but being the only one who put them in there.
    That gives me some hope for humanity at least, because there always being one is just an unwritten rule.

    Pleasantly surprised that Katie Taylor got 117 votes. Well deserved
