This ain't hatin, but will you just explain some of them picks. Come on......

Chris Byrd, James Toney,& Mike Tyson Over Greb, Duran, Leonard, Ross?

Jorge Fernando Castro at number #18? LMAO.......

Orlin Norris at number #29?

Young Peter Jackson at #3?

But yet were's Archie Moore, Ezzard Charles, Rocky Maricano, Pernell Whitaker, Carlos Monzon, Alexis Arguello, Joe Gans, Jimmy Wilde, Larry Holmes, George Foreman etc etc?

I think it could be a strong possiblity you just random these out of a hat. And am being serious.............

In general , all my picks you criticized are men whom fought successfully against top class opponents with unlimited size advantage over them.
This proves they fulfill the definition of P4P in the clearest manner.

It will not be hard for you to do the boxrecing yourself and see against who did these men fight against and how tough they were (admit I still haven't seen Tyson's losses to Williams and McBride , the loss t Lewis i m not sure , and if i did , it was long ago , or partial ) .

Orlin Norris fights are extremely hard to get , and for Young Peter Jackson ,
the answer is obvious .


I think it could be a strong possiblity you just random these out of a hat. And am being serious.............
Really resembles picking from a hat : picking from my limited memory and knowledge about the old time 118-175lbers .
