    The top 8 do not change but the others do.

    Lately I’ve been watching Mexicans fighters more. And Chavez, Barrera, canelo, Marquez will probably feature soon in my top 25.

    I love Bob Montgomery but there is not enough video to say he is among my favorites. I would love to see Ike Williams I, Bob was one of my Pop-pops favorites but outside of that I don’t have enough to go on.

    Frazier (along w/ 2 other Joe’s) is my favorite HW...But I really don’t enjoy the HW division and no HW will ever crack my favorite list.

    Weird. No offense but I don't think I would like the sport if it was only heavyweights.
