    Not sure who to rate as top 5 but in terms of ability I think Seniesa Estrada looks the best female boxer.

    :lol: I'm not even knocking the gals. It just is what it is. In terms of talent and depth the women's game has an awful long way to go to catch up with the men's game. Not saying it won't improve in that regard with time but I'm just not prepared to play this game where we're forced to pretend a square is a circle.

    Not even at strawweight you would find boxers like the number 5 within their top 50 too often. Male middlewight you'd have to look just inside the top 1000. Shows the huge difference in level.

    How is Taylor number 1? She is the female Canelo, robberies in half of her fights

    In terms of pure quality Savannah Marshall is the best, most complete woman fighter I've seen. Katie Taylor- great boxer tho still amateurish in many ways, not a puncher. Serrano great pressure fighter, skills rather crude. Shields great speed, reflexes, a mix of elite skills and flaws, not a puncher. SM elite offensive and defensive boxing skills, huge puncher.

    What's not to like about her. She has a sense of humour as well.!
