    Great list. I love the inclusion of Mark Johnson. It's really interresting so many of your top guys are high level boxers but your number one guy is a bruising slugger.

    Thanks. I really don’t think of Qawi as a slugger though. I always saw him more as a high-level pressure fighter who used his underrated skills and reflexes to *outbox* and outfight taller opponents.

    Your right. He had to use his skills and movement just to be able to get inside on those guys. Very good point.

    You still have time to properly order you list by Oct 14 if you'd like. Or you can keep the order you have, or I can remove your submission from consideration.

    Your call. Please let me know how you'd prefer to proceed.

    No need to apologize! These things get tricky enough to organize when it comes to making Top 10 lists. Once you start rearranging lists this large, it's easy to find yourself lost as things get shuffled around. :thumbsup:

    Technically speaking the deadline is less than 3 days away. However, I will continue accepting submissions, perhaps for a few days afterwards while I first finish my Fury-Wilder review, and when I next work on the sister survey in the General.

    Once I finish that other survey however, I will close this thread and no long accept any new submissions. I can't say exactly how many days it will extend, so if you intend to volunteer I still ask that you do ASAP before the "official" deadline. Because once I close it, it's closed.

    Thanks everyone! Appreciate your time, effort, and participation!

    I left a lot of darlings out in the cold, sadly pressing their faces against the bubble, alas...35 spots ran out in a hurry and none of my honorable mentions quite have me itching to bump anyone. (guys like George Michael "Mickey" Ward Jr., James Nathaniel "Lights Out" Toney, Ricardo "El Matador" Antonio Mayorga Pérez, Orlando "Siri" Salido Rivera, "Sugar" Shane Mosley, etc)

    I'm not entirely sold on my order and may tweak it over the coming days in the remaining time, but... happy with the list overall. It feels pretty representative of my cross-section of "taste", and if you were to build a database with a complex algorithm like the website Pandora (into which you enter song titles or artist names as seeds, and it gets a sense for what you like, further aided by thumbing-up or -down any track it plays, until it can fairly well predict what suggestions you will enjoy) this would be my starter batch of input for sure.

    Ahh ****, I forgot about Usyk! :mad: Mother****ing ****!

    (he is #1 in my active list, just ahead of Ioka - but that's based on them now, as currently active fighters...I still have a lot more love for prime Ioka...the question is, does anyone come off my 35 all-time above for Usyk?)

    Once upon a time I'd have anguished over finding room for Sergey Kovalev, but...
