    BTW, it's still going to take me a couple of days to get through the 1910s results. But for what it's worth, I definitely think this one is the most thought-provoking to date.

    Spoiler alert, and something I found particularly interesting.

    No one inside the Top 10 appeared unanimously on all 18 lists. Most in the Top 10 only appeared on 12 or 13 lists out of 18. And on a related note, that's giving me a lot of faith in my scoring system (which has been revised since the first Surveys back in 2020, in hopes of helping to balance out peculiar things, whether it be an odd omission, oversight, and various other anamolies).

    But yes, the 1910s has far less consensus in the Top 10 when compared to the 1890s and 1900s.

    There's some very strange stuff going on in this one. Not "bad", and I am in no way meaning to sound critical of ANY of the participants. But I've done enough of these that my inner math dork is utterly fascinated by the unusual numbers behind the results (which I think are solid - what a bad ass decade!)

    I'm glad you've posted this. I've seen some lists and thought "how the hell have you excluded.......?" or "he only had 2% (not a genuine example) of his career fights in this decade, how can his record be one of the 10 best in that decade?".

    I suspect some of the strange stuff you refer to, is partially explicable by differing degrees to which posters have applied the criteria, of only fights from the decade in question contributing towards a fighters ranking in that decade.

    It's a strong era. I think that, combined with the fact that we have more participants, and more general diversity of opinion - it has me utterly fascinated! :lol:

    Now I'm even more curious to see how these progress into the 20s, 30s, 40s, and beyond.

    1920s deadline fastly approaching. Officially about 46 hours left, but I may stretch that an extra 48. But still, sooner is better.

    Get your 1920s lists in!!
