    That top 10 is the reason SkyNet must not be formed.

    Still trying to figure out how Guillermo Jones and Marvin Hart are rated above Jim Jeffries and how David Haye is rated above Vitali Klitschko in their all-time heavyweight ratings.

    Arguably the worst list of all-time. I don’t even want to begin to nitpick it. There’s at least 20 names that wouldn’t make ANY respectable top 50 and about 10 or so that wouldn’t make top 100s.

    Mayweather fans love it but remember, most Mayweather fans aren’t boxing fans. Especially the ones that became boxing fans after he was pound for pound.

    Really? Tyson is your issue? Not Greb at 20 or Langford in the 40s.

    I have many problems with this list, especially since it is a pound for pound best fighters that left out men that were successful from lightweight to heavy weight like Greb and langford

    Incomplete records early on, the long layoffs of various early boxers, and Marvin Heart gets a lot of points from his controversial win over Jack Johnson, and his NWS win over O'Brien.

    Probably from lower divisions, I'd need to check which. A long career also helps the all time rankings, fighters tend to accumulate points.

    I'm talking about the all-time heavyweight ratings.

    Guillermo Jones is rated #42 in boxrec's all-time heavyweight ratings. Just behind Jerry Quarry at #41.

    The other heavyweights immediately below Guillermo Jones are:
    43. Andy Ruiz
    44. Jimmy Ellis
    45. Marvin Hart
    46. Ruslan Chagaev
    47. Young Stribling
    48. James J. Jeffries
    49. Tomasz Adamek
    50. Nikolay Valuev
