Now post who you feel to low or to high, and who shound't be above who etc!

For me Bert has Sam Langford, Ray Leonard, Ezzard Charles, Evander Holyfield, Pernell Whitaker, Marvin Hagler, Carlos Monzon, Alexis Arguello, Charley Burley, Ike Williams, Kid Gavilan, Sandy Saddler Bob Fitszimmons, Salvador Sanchez, Roy Jones Jr, Wilfredo Gomez, Aaron Pryor, Bernard Hopkins, Wilfredo Benitez and Mike Tyson to low and way to low.

And for me I think he may have the following to high Jack Dempsey,Jose Napoles, Billy Conn, Carlos Zarate, Tony Zale, Maxie Rosenbloom, and maybe Marcel Cerdan.

and for me bert shoundt of left out the following, felix trinidad, michael spinks, azumah nelson, maybe de la hoya, Eusebio Pedroza, maybe Antonio Cervantes and probs a few more!

Discuss on who you think is to low and who is to high and who bert missed out!

Yeah. I can't see Dempsey in the top 10. Nor can I see Tyson at 100. Tyson's self-destruction weighed way too heavy in Bert Sugar's mind. And as much I'm having trouble figuring out who I definitely would put above Dempsey I don't see how he did enough to be placed so high.

With all due respect I can't see Hamed in the top 100 and Felix Trinidad is not a sure thing. Trinidad was excellent but he is not a sure thing top 100 fighter. Where would you place him among Welterweights? Do you have him crack the top 10 all-time?

Yeah, I was refreshing my memory on boxrec but I think that once you get past the top 3-5 welterweights of all time the next 10 are close to each other. I was a Trinidad fan and rooted for him against de la Hoya. But, as an example, de la Hoya would have won that fight if he didn't run for the last three rounds. Again, I like Trinidad, but I'll pose the same question: where does he place among Welterweights?

Bert is always very, very harsh on modern boxers. I think it's obvious that he prefers the earlier eras to the ones that followed.

I think he put Whitaker, Jones, Hopkins, Monzon, Sanchez and Lopez too low.

And I also think that Conn, Zale, Dempsey, Cerdan and Napoles are too high.
