I think Duran is a bit overrated, in my opinion. I think he's a top 20 fighter but not a top 10 fighter.

I would probably have Fitzsimmons in the top 20, as well.

I am surprised that some people didn't include Rocky Marciano or Jack Dempsey? Dempsey was a big draw and help popularize the sport. Although some thought he had loaded gloves when he shattered Willard's jaw in several places.

In my list, i do have have Monzon on my top 20 and as greatest latin fighter, he fought strong competition, 14 MW defenses, and went his last 80 or so fights without a lost. I also would have put guys like Tony Canzoneri, Jimmy Wilde, Archie Moore, Barney Ross etc. Although he died young; I put Salvador Sanchez at #19, he beat great fighters as Juan la Porte, Azumah nelson, Danny Red Lopez twice, and beat Gomez when he was like 32-0 with 32 KO's.
