I also was a bit surprised at Ray Leonard not being on there, as well as a few others.

He should replace Tunney with Pep and put Ray Leonard where Foreman is. I respect everyone's personal list though because its their own version. All time great lists are very debatable, and everyone will not agree with each other on them.

I have to agree, I find it hard to accept a top 10 p4p list without Pep on it, maybe my own personal bias. I pretty much will champion any top 10 list where all the fighters would get in my personal top 25. There is no definitive list and personal favourites will always get heavier weighting

I can imagine alot of people will be shocked not to see Willie Pep on it, and the likes of Benny Leonard, Sam Langford, Harry Greb, and Joe Gans, and many more. And I do feel the names I have named are more worthy than Thomas Hearns and a few others on the list.

But everyone is intitled to there own views and thoughts as to who they think are the top 10 fighters of all time.....

Only Tunney totally pre war? I can go with putting on fighter you have seen or more your era but if I was going to go with 1 fighter from before the war it wouldn't be Tunney
