    What are yours? I know it gets done a lot but there's a few newer guys and opinions change The only rule is that you have to limit it to 15. don't go off on a riff with a line at the bottom saying you can't decide. That's no fun n no challenge

    Manny Pacquiao
    Noaya Inoue
    Dmitry Bivol
    Vasily Lomachenko
    Roman Gonzalez

    That's my top 5. Asking for 15 is rude.

    #14. Evander Holyfield
    #13. Saad Muhammad
    #12. Alexis Arguello
    #11. Ruben Olivares
    #10. Chucho Castillo
    #09. Fighting Harada
    #08. Carl Thompson
    #07. Gerry Penalosa
    #06. Veeraphol Sahaprom
    #05. Marvin Hagler
    #04. Erik Morales
    #03. Michael Watson
    #02. Marvin Johnson
    #01. Ezzard Charles

    Most people here can't even count to 15 anyway.
    Canelo, GGG, Inoue, Pacman, Spence.

    Les Darcy
    George Godfrey

    1. Tyson Fury (The Undisputed & Lineal Heavyweight Champion of the world, Future GOAT.)

    2.Amir Khan - The most exciting fighter of his time, the man who got me into boxing. I am forever indebted to King Khan.

    3. Muhammad Ali - "He never threw a body punch in his life, Ali is a f'in animal. He looks more like a model than a fighter but he is like a tyrannosaurus rex with a pretty face, he'll take you into deep waters and drown you, he's very special"

    4. Manny Pacquiao - Depends on my promoter Bab Arum

    5. Joe Frazier - Next to Ali in heart guts and determination, The first incarnation of Mike Tyson.

    6. James Toney - "HERE I COME BABY BURGER KING, BURGER KING!, DON KING KISS MY ASS!"

    7. Goerge Foreman - "Sit down and make me a sandwich"

    8. Errol Spence - Nice nipples, the best Welterweight of this era.

    9. Marcos Maidana - "The Cow has messed with the Bull"

    10. Lucas Matthysse - "Si"

    11. Jack Johnson - Ahead of his time
    12. Joe Louis - Ahead of his time
    13. Mike Tyson - 1988 Mike Tyson is one of the greatest fighters to ever live.
    14. Charlie Z - Took Wilders heart
    15. Logan Paul - Bruh how tf is he fighting Floyd. Can't be a total mental chode to pull that off.

    My list changes every week and I’m pretty tired of contradicting myself with these threads. So idk but my top two are always Terry Norris and Evander Holyfield
