    Fair. Yet, everyone has their own criteria for "greatest."

    I know, but when I did the survey, I used H2H as the defining factor

    Funny how people can pick Wilde as the best flyweight ever, and not rank him that high P4P.

    I mean he would be giving up significant weight to a modern minimumweight.

    One thing stands out somewhat, Tyson makes the final list ?

    And Marciano doesn't.

    If old-time p4p considerations were considered, given their respective sizes, and the overall level of their scalps, and where each man finished in the HW division, I find that one a little puzzling.

    Considering this lost was made by committee, it's not bad at all.

    I don't think there's a genuine case for Jones being higher than both Pac and Floyd. I hate having any heavyweights other than Ali and Louis. I do like how high Moore ended up, though. Although McFarland being in the 30s really didn't sit right.

    So you used hypothetical imaginary fights that never happened, rather than real life fights and accomplishments as your defining criteria?

    Couple of Tyson fetishists had to put a mustache on this Mona Lisa.

    Otherwise, good job.

    And thanks to @Rumsfeld, the Classic Forum’s P4P king.

    p4p list is the best list the process produced IMO.

    That P4P list is quality.

    Jones and Tyson are a bit too high imo and I was shocked at Holmes, but all in all the list is solid as hell.

    It's surprising Dempsey didn't get a mention.

    This forum has changed a hell of a lot the past ten years.

    Yes, we are only 50 years behind rather than 60!


    But seriously as mentioned great job by @Rumsfeld
